The giant "dead spot" in the middle kinda annoys me. Could you maybe throw an attack path across the middle or something? I'm not a fan of the circular gameplay. A shortcut across the map would be most excellent, in my opinion.

I love the circular gameplay, I think it makes things a wee bit different than other maps.

Thanks all.. I originally wanted the path through the middle but then decided against it. I'm going to dress up the dead areas a bit so it won't be so bland. I'll be posting an update soon (mainly graphical).

Iceland is famous for it's continental shelf running through it...

Can you add this this on the map? (If it's there can you point it out!)

I'll look into it. :|

Colors okay?
Territ names easy enough to read on different monitors?
Borders clearly enough defined?
Bonus's okay?

update is looking great. graphically and playability wise, this could beat all the current maps in teh main foundry.

for the legend, could u list it in sort a north-south way, or east-west way? it just makes it a lot easier to find because of the textures and ice on the map, its a bit hard at first.

u could list the 2 east continents first then go north-south for the west side. would make it much more player friendly to be able to see which continent gets what better.

Shilvering? You don't like the pink/purple southern color?

At the moment you've got the regions listed going anti-clockwise, which is counter-intuitive. Id recommend starting at the green Northern Region, and going clockwise...

The map continues to look impressive. THe first thing I noticed on the upodate was the big orange bit... I can see that the colours are all balanced, although I preferred the light yellow/cream colour you had previously. This is probably just a matter of personal taste, and not really a suggestion! :wink:

Somebody mentioned how the cream / green were too close. And I was afraid on some monitors it would not contrast enough, which is why I changed it. I kind of like the cream also. I may switch back. Also on this update I made the green a bit darker, so that would probably help differentiate the two.

Legend order is no problem to move. I'll slowly be working on dressing it up a bit.

So.... Eastern should be Cream or Orange?

Agreed. Because Iceland is known for its peeling paint. :P I especially like the icy stuff on the yellow and green continents. Did you draw that, or did you overlay something, etc.?

selected the white color range on the google map, then filled the selected area with white on a new layer. (If that makes sense?) If you look at the google map on the first post, you'll see what I'm talking about.

I agree with Jako - leave it as is, just tone down the orange just a bit - slightly more muted.

This looks like it's shaping up to be an awesome map! Looking forward to playing! I'm gonna go vote: Keep it moving!!
