Dim, please refresh the maps above...the borders have been changed on the small map, but...
strange how we're all human mistake makers...i left "Tha Maker" text off both of these new versions (you can see it in the digits map) and several pairs of eyes have been over these new maps, and yet we never picked it up...until now. :roll:

It's not strange, just a human peculiarity that makes our lives more interesting. Life would be so boring if we would be perfect! ;)

Anyway this is one of the reasons we have a foundry process and the proof that there's always space for improve.
The files were sent to the turtle and the players of all active games warned about the update.
The new files will be updated as soon as possible (i think tomorrow).

Just noticed the map has a territory labeled "Tennaderim", but the XML says "Tennaserim". Not a huge deal, but it made me do a double-take when selecting from the drop-down.

I've re-worked this map and take it from Fireworks to Photshop.
In doing so, i discovered there was 30 pixels to play with that weren't in the original image...so i used them to give this a lift - Thai style.
1. the region borders now have a slight white tinge inner glow that helps differentiate where they actually are and lifts the border itself
2. the title book has been re-worked to a "top-down" overview rather than that somewhat poor 3d image from before.
3. obviously the new frame has been added and the temple domes added to the bonus legend.
4. Some huts have moved slightly so re-centering in xml will have to be re-done.

Feedback if you have any?

Wow, nice.

A couple of points of feedback then, as you ask:

The new texture on the regions is just slightly too intense.
The pale blue passable part of the river doesn't totally obviously touch Hunt.
The same river ends very abruptly. Put a line there?
I don't see a cairnswk logo on there. :-$

Can you explain this further please MB...does it need lightening/darkening...it is the same texture that was previously used by PS treats it a little differntly

Fixed. F5 to see that in the above image.

You mean around the end of that river at Ban Thai?

I don't see a cairnswk logo on there. :-$

Fixed.

Your new image has disappeared now.

From what I remember, the texture rendered with higher contrast and the terrain looked really bumpy in the updated version?

And yes, the river ending between Ban Thai and Pantridge. Just a black line there will keep me quiet.

Thanks for the feedback MB. :)

That looks incredible! The only thing I noticed was that it is a little hard for me to read the bridge territories "Weary Dunlop" and "Philip Toosey," but other than that, it's a remarkable facelift! Well done.
