Notable changes in this revision:
-Maryland has been changed from nuetral to being a Union state.
-The swords have been "un"embossed and made to look like swords again.
-The ships and bridges have been redrawn and repositioned; An attack line has been drawn from Maryland to USS4; A third bridge has been added to make it clear that Louisiana and Mississippi can attack each other.
-The bugle has been made a little smaller.
With this revision I've taken all the suggestions that were previously unaddressed and either made changes or decided that the graphics and/or gameplay would not benefit from it.
Maryland becoming a Union state seemed to make both geographic and gameplay sense; So, although the argument could be made that it was in fact nuetral, I agreed that the Union capital should fall within the borders of a Union state.
The attack line from Maryland to one of the union ships also seemed to be something that would provide a means for the Union fleet to possibly be owned by a northern general, enhancing gameplay.
The graphics have been polished to the point that I'm very pleased and think that placing much more time on them would only serve to compromise my own style and preferences. -Personally, I like this map and, while it's been a culmination of a lot of input and perspectives, I think it captures the era well and that the gameplay should be intiguing and lively. -Elijah
