Some spelling issues:

-"Linconshire" --> "Lincolnshire"
-"Donegol" --> "Donegal"
-"Dorest" --> "Dorset"
-"Lothian and Boarders" --> "Lothian and Borders"
-"Glamongan" --> "Glamorgan"
-"Westmoreland" --> "Westmorland"

Also, if that's an ampersand in south wales, consider using it consistently as a replacement for and (scotland).

I think they are a little too bold, perhaps fading them some would help, but I would have to see it. Overall, it just makes the map too busy. Part of the appeal for the other one was that there wasn't too much that distracted you when playing the game.

I personally would like to see it done similar to the current version just with a more updated feel, but not adding all sorts of extra images and things.

That's just me though.

Also, the double-line borders between the continents just look awkward to me. They don't seem to match up very well.

What happened to Cork and Kerry? Those are my favourite territories on the BI map.

Also, the impassable dividers look ugly, try some mountains.

The impassables are still under going work like i mentioned. . . .

and the terr names have been changed to make the map more geographically correct. But the gameplay is still the same.

More spelling errors (I think there were more wrong than right to start with :) ):

Lothian and Borders
Glamorgan and Gwent

I don't like "Central England" as a territory - maybe change that plus Lincolnshire into "West Midlands" and "East Midlands" with their correct borders, which wouldn't affect the gameplay.

Technically "The British Isles" includes the Channel Islands as well as the Orknies and Shetlands - but as this is a revamp I guess they are quite hard to include.

Have you tried coloring in the continents and then making the flags be a watermark inside?

Also congrats on figuring out my checklist to get moved. :lol:
