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!!

i actually prefer the cream color over the orange.
seems to fit the map better, and it's not hard to distinguish.
i very much like the topographical feel, or "shilvering."

can we coin "shilvering"?

Initial thoughts?
Continue Work. I like the gameplay & graphical direction as is
51% [ 46 ]

Continue Work. Keep the relief (land) graphics more simple.
2% [ 2 ]

Continue Work. Graphics are fine, but gameplay needs to be evened out
26% [ 24 ]

Not Interested. Why would we want a map of barely unihabited land?
1% [ 1 ]

Not Interested. However, with more work, it has potential.
2% [ 2 ]

Quench!
16% [ 15 ]

I actually think the whiter version of the two looks the better one.

One thing that bothers me a little, however, is the legend. Although the colours are fairly distinct on the map, they are perhaps a little less so on the legend and I think a small version would suffer even more so. There's plenty of space down there, however, so I was thinking an outline map, as in the Great Lakes map, with the bonus numbers within may be better?

i'm about ready to stamp this map for gameplay, since the discussion is mostly around graphics issues. Can you clarify what the bonuses are, because you seem to have taken a step backwards on the latest version.

What do you mean step backward? I adjusted the bonuses based on feedback. Plus, I haven't really done much with this in a while. It's kind of my style to have little bursts of creativity, then a down period. I like having these projects as works in progress.

my fault - I was looking at your animated two-color version in your most recent post, which shows the old bonuses.

Seeing no recent objections to any mechanical issues, I'd like to stamp this... the gameplay is pretty straightforward, the map is easy to understand. That doesn't mean you can't still make changes, but it seems quite playable as is.
