I think that the bonus areas for the castle and airport should be more clearly defined. I play the map A LOT so of course it is simple to me. While playing an opponent recently though they brought up that it is not clearly marked what is flughafen or das schlob. Looking at the map I agree that it is not clear at all. Perhaps the border needs to be thicker around the castle/airport territs or some kind of shading/coloring to be assigned?

Just my .02 but it would improve the map and make it more user friendly I think.

In consdieration of the above request, this is Version 46 small.
If it's acceptable then i will produc the large and have it uploaded subject to approval of the mods.
I have placed a grey brick wall under the Schloss part in the legend and the airport is outlined by a subtle soft purple same as in its legend.
the changes are subtle so not to detract from the rest of the map.

If the castle is clearer, then by default shouldn't the airport also be clearer.
I don't want to take those colours any further as it would destroy the feeling of the map, and in fact looking at it now, it already has changed the colours and i don't really like it anymore, because now instead of blue being the subdominant colour in the legend, it's gray and purple and that doesn't mix well with the blue in the eagle which dominates....oh well back to the drawing board.

I think one of the problems is that all of the flughafen territories are different colors...some just solid white, some are gray and some are white with these blue lines on them. To someone new to the map they will probably wonder where flughafen is...and if they can figure out that it is that top right cluster they may be unsure as to which territories count towards the 5/11/19 bonus.

if you want to work with/bring out the blue in the eagle you could change the airport tiles all to a white with a blue tint to them?

This is the solution.
The airport has now been changed back to blue; i have also added the Flaghfen Perimeter indcator to ansure that qnyone dsoesn't miss it; and there are now two references as to what is encompassed by the Schloss Walls.

Those territories aren't the Das Dorf territories. DD1, DD2, DD3, DD4, Kneipe, Markt, Militarlager, and Holz-Schuppen comprise the Das Dorf bonus.
