Well, I'm just gonna put it out here:

Some things to think about:
-Is the map too dark (my Canada map was, and I made this the same style)?
-Title? Not sure exactly how to arrange it.
-Do the rivers/mountains look good?
-Font? (not the territory names, the Russian-style stuff) Too much?

Besides that, just comment on anything, bonuses, gameplay, names, accuracy or graphics.

QFT

And finally someone attempted to do this. It's great.

I like the texture, the darkness, the rivers.. Not too fond of the mountains, you can't really see them

a very nice first map. Haven't looked at gameplay at all yet, but my visual complaints are few and minor; for instance, the mountains actually look like mountains (which is great and something most mapmakers can't achieve around here) but they may actually be too realistic for a map that doesn't try to achieve realism in any other aspect.

do the rivers in russia really not empty into anything?

I have 2 minor graphics complaints.

The light side ofthe mountains is 2 white a little more transparency wouldnt hurt. And i feel that hte rivers should be hte same color as the sea, but thats jsut a matter of personal taste i think. maybe a small 1-2 pixal line should be added around te rivers as well to help them fit in a little better. again may jsut be personl taste.

regardless this is a solid 1st draft and i expect it to move quickly throught hte founry.
What do you know about map making, bitch?

looks promising. one obvious error: "eastern republics" ought to be "western republics".

Gameplay issues:
Green (central asia?) should connect to orange (european russia) via caspian sea, right now it just seems like an end. Anybody who goes for that area will be much more likely to win.
I suggest you change red to be worth 3.
Connect the islands, that way you don't have to go through purple to get from one end of the map to the other. To compensate for these added borders, makea river going between taymyr and mirny, bump up the bonus for owning teal to 4, and get rid of the novaya zemlya - yamalia attack route.

The main problem with this map is how linear it is. Graphically, it is absolutely impeccable.

I like the map, only some little things:

-I think your rivers have to be flowing IN the land and not ON the land (maybe remove the shadow)

-I don't really like the thick border around the lake at aktobe...I know it's the edge of the playable area but still it looks not right...maybe you can make the right edge of the lake thick and make the borders with caucasus,stalingrad,aktobe and turkmenistan smaller

-you made all the outer borders thick but it looks like kamchatka has only a thick border at the left and the right is small again...

-is it normal that you have some light coloured spots on some territories? at yamalia there is a bright purple above the name, same in Taymyr...the ones from taymyr looks ok, same goes for the spots in Leningrad and larelia...
But the Yamalia one looks to much like a mistake than the other ones...

But wow you did a great job here! I like this map a lot!

the only thing I see is that some of the territory names cross over into other territorys and its hard to tell which it belongs to.
