Do you have an image with starting neutrals and starting position numbers? This will make oaktowns job easier when he arrives :)

here it is:

all starting armies are marked on the map.
the starting positions for each player are marked with the same colour.
ofcourse the shop and home marked with red army might end up at the cyan player because it's random but the idea is that the shop and house with red army will always belong to 1 player.

Blue house and yellow factory are way to close and easily make a 1st turn advantage for blue house with decent dice.

Also cyan/teal colored house and shops are almost invisable to me. If I wasn't looknig for them I wouldnt of known they where there. A nice black stroke or a darker glow may help this but im not really sure.

Another worrying thought is that because your using a strong blue background some colors may appear similar in gameplay e.g. blue and green armie colours could appear similar.

tweaked the gameplay and changed some borders. now the enemies are right in next to you in a very weird situation.

will see. problem is that if i add a stroke to those. i have to add to the others. i'll see about it. i'll also toy with the background to see if i can do something.

v11

after trying glows and strokes and stuff like that on icons i found nothing that looked good. so i started tweaking the background but by making it lighter and lighter i totally strayed from the blueprint feeling so now i give you the whiteprint (cairns and yeti please shut up)


if anybody still has issues seeing icons or text then i'll officially tell you you're blind as a bat.
edit// i forgot the sig opacity at 100% i will tone it down in the next update.

You have a 4-way border between p7, p8, p9 and p10. Not sure if this was intended or not.

If it was, then ignore the above message.

Also, I like this map, and I love the progress it's made. Keep up the excellent work!

There's a 4-way at G2 G3 G5 G6, also. Just in case you were going to specify the one junction in the message.

what shadows? i have a lot of different shadows on the map. tell me which ones and what exactly you don't like about them and i'll see what i can do.

btw those are the same shadows as the blueprint. so normally there shouldn't be anything wrong with them :?

the shadows of the paper itself, where the creases are. It just sticks out on the white paper, but not the blue paper.

i think it sticks out more on the blue because there it looks more like a random line

This might also be used as a game setting. You can choose at the start a game menu wether or not to multiply the armies.
