Hard to believe this map could look any better, but it does. Well done cairns.

Hi, I dropped by today to post two things:

1.
The image the site uses is a .jpg file:
http://maps.conquerclub.com/Rail_Europe2.L.jpg
The image cairns has on the first page of this thread is a .png:
http://i155.photobucket.com/albums/s282 ... update.png
The cairns version has lovely crisp colours, which are washed out on the 'official' image, and there's some fuzziness all over the .jpg. Consider re-uploading to the map index?

2.
I came to say that the F line bonus is under-valued. And the M line over-valued. But then, having read through the last few pages of bonus discussion, I think it's best to leave it be. Cairns has put a lot of effort into this map, and I don't want to stir up a huge change now when we can sit back and enjoy it as it is.

I think this is part of the "downsizing the bytage" process, is it not?

Wow, yes, I'm prepared to take back what I said.

For contrast, Kings Court II (which comes to mind when I think of a big map file) is 402.84 KB.
This is 809.04 KB.

It just seems a shame to not use the pristine image.

Perhaps the differrence in size comes down to the number of colours used.
I think King's Court uses many of the same colours whereas this one has many differing colour pixels spread wide.

The amount of colors makes a file's size increase? Really?

I beleive so, it is the 0+1s combinations for each colour that make up the extra bytes of info.

In past images were compressed by lackattack.
Now all images are compressed before to be sent for the upload. In this way (and using a different system) i can keep the quality high and not waste all the hard work you guys do here.
Anyway, this is what I would like to send for the upload fi you are fine with them.
I think you can't see any loss of quality but files are small anyway. :)
