OK, but now the large map size seems to throw off the tert. locations. everything seems fine on small size. but large is way out of proportion and unplayable.

anyway. i like the map. so thanks for making it. :mrgreen:

WILLIAMS5232, thanks for posting that.
Problem was i saved the large file as a .png at 2.6MB and uploaded to photobucket who then resized the image at 91% which is waht you see on the large play version.

This new file (which i'll get off immediately) less than 1Mb and photobucket has saved at the correct size of 800x773.

Hi Cairns, you've got a wonderful map here, as ever (perhaps even your best to date).

I've just one thing to mention today:
Some random fuzziness in the legend. It doesn't seem to be a problem for most, but I thought you might be willing to take a look at it.

Image

I see this across all of that legend board, and the rest of the map seems very crisp.

Maybe it would just be a case of redoing the text?

This particularly on the small version.

Actually, just looking at the map image on the first page of this thread (following on from my previous post in this thread), it seems that this is another map which suffers from file compression (like Rail Europe).

@nobodies,
whatever you did for Rail Europe, would it be possible to do for Waterloo?

I was bringing this up in another thread, but this is another map that has an ambiguous key. Particularly, there is no way of determining from the key which farm houses can be bombarded and if so from where

I think it's okay. The farm houses which can be bombarded have a red infantry peg in them, and the part of the legend about artillery explains that blue artillery can bombard red infantry on the same side of the road.
