There is more I can say about this map, but after making a move for a buddy in a game on this map, the transcontinental bonus is way too unclear. Just because it says it somewhere doesn't mean it is clear. I think more can and should be done to clear that up. In general I like this map but it is difficult to read.

Could you clarify 'unclear', and what you'd suggest that could possibly improve it?
My guess is, without trying to offend you, that you're simply angry cause you've made a mistake in not paying enough attention.

That is an idiotic response. It wasn't even my game. Other than that, the only reason I commented here is because I think this can be improved (though I'd leave exactly if or how up to the artist). There is no personal "anger" over an unclear map.

Unclear = not readily transparent. It is pretty clear that it is an issue when you go back and read the log and the guy I subbed for had the same confusion as did I. There are many ways to make it more transparent. But I think that if it is made transparent the map will be better off for it. One issue that could contribute is the color itself (brown is not a bold color but blends in a bit). The isolated territory is rather small and it is hard to even see the brown unless you know it is there. The font in the legend is tiny and easily missed. This isn't an issue that breaks the map, but it certainly could be more clear and I think it should be.

But even though it's brown and not so big... Anyone who really pays attention and looks out over the map to place the continents can see it, right? It's even repeated in the legend inset, and there is an explanatory phrase. It may be small aswell, but honestly, don't people read the whole map before starting to play? I sure do.
I'm sorry if I was wrong saying you posted this because of your own mistake. That may have been idiotic indeed. It's just that a lot of people have come here to complain for exactly that reason, and I still think that's undeserved. But as I said, I didn't mean to offend you.

Quick question that isn't real clear on the legend.

Say you hold everything related to Italy, and the two "Red Medi" islands. Does this give you the both the Italian and Medi bonuses even though the second +3 is only 2 extra islands?

Yes, because the bonuses overlap — the 5 islands can come from any set of bonuses, or as many as you please.

So if Transcontinental has a 4 man bonus and Motherland has 1 woulden't Transcontinental have 5 total.
