a nice light blue may work for the tropical Caribbean... but it feels out of place here.

The water color could go either way for me. It seems the majority of the people that have commented seem to be alright with the current option, but we can see if anyone else feels the same way as mibi.

Closing stretch. :)

Yeah its not a big deal... i just think with the richness of the greens, the blue should match...

Hate to say it this late in the process, but the darker ocean looks substantially better. I wouldn't say it's a dealbreaker, especially since I'm not the one that's going to have to be making the changes, but it is an improvement on an already great-looking map.

I also hate to say it but I agree. I never would have picked that out, but seeing the 2 side by side does make the darker one stand out. Still a great map and should be quenched here in no time at all...

I agree, and it can't be too hard of a fix.

I like the lighter water better, but I think I could live with it being this dark. It's not as dark as mibi's but I think this one works.


To Do:

1. The darker river revealed that the land has spread out past the river borders in quite a few areas. Scientists are trying to figure out how this phenomena started. I'll be working on erasing and redrawing tomorrow.

2. Remove the glow from the legend. I think it'll look better considering the dark background. At the least, I'll see how it looks and if it's horrible then I'll just lower the glow, or figure something else out.


OK. Will do that tomorrow because I want to watch a couple episodes of the Wire right now.

thats because just the lightness has been changed, and the contrast suffers.. it looks a bit muted and dull.

#1. This update looks better than the original, and than mibis suggestion. Good job on finding the middle ground.

#2 @Andy--Have you ever been to a rainforest? I haven't, but I assume with all the layers of trees it'd be a fairly dark place and thus this map of South America matches. You'd probably see it from the top layer of trees being a monkey and all though.

I asked my web design teacher and someone next to me, they both preferred light though I preferred dark.

I like the old one better.

Though I have yet to be involved in this process, I'll throw in my 2 cents: I like the light water significantly more.

Also, I like this map a lot.

Dunno. Andy sleeps a lot. He'll let you know when he wakes up. I suggest you have bananas waiting for him. I think this is ready myself.

Been extra busy as of late...collecting as many bananas as I could for my Winter Horde.

Could you post the links to both the large map and the small map, in addition to a link to the XML?

You should be careful of evil reptiles that may want to steal all of it. Would hate for you to have to go on an adventure.

thanks yeti_c but I believe they wanted the regular links to the maps not the XML maps



edit: I also checked over my XML for the 947524th time. I will be quite surprised if there are any problems.
