The same font on the rest of the map is the font on the legend. I don't see a need to change the legend.

I don't think yeti is talking about the font, rather the drop shadow and colours?

The colors are identical to the base colors of all the continents, before the gradient is applied to them. That certainly doesn't need to change, though lessening the effect of the drop shadow on the large (where it's offset more) is a good idea.

Could we see a version without the drop shadow at all?

Alrighty, two options I have here. Version 24a is without any drop shadow AND a slightly lightened red on Avenue of Remembrance. Version 24b keeps the drop shadow and has only the slightly lightened red. Both are easily readable, but I think 24b looks better.

howabout instead of the drop shadow, just a really slight black outer glow? But of the 2 options above, I prefer B.

Yes- I think that could do it - I do prefer B - but I think it does look a bit off considering the other text on the map has no drop shadow at all. -> In fact the Parade Deck text is also Legend text and has no Drop either (for obvious reasons).

I'm stalling this map intentionally, as I need to clear the license of The Citadel (a fact I had overlooked until I found out the mere name is copyrighted). I was hoping to do so by being strangely quiet on my map's development, but hand hast been forcéd. That, and my hard drive reformatted itself again. I still have a source PSD, but bringing it back up to date with the present version may be a little difficult. :D

I have two backups. One is older than the nice trees and I have immediate access to it, and the other is hopefully on Gimil's computer.

So, I know you're kind of stalling, but I wanted to give a shout-out to this map anyway. We're all ready for it to be in play, so what kind of timeline do you think you're working with?

Best,

Whenever the heck my Citadel staff contact forwards my memo to the Citadel licensing people, and whatever the layover time with them is. And that's assuming I get licensing approval at all.

Could you simply change the title? I think your image is fine since you drew it.

Call me naive, but I don't think the map deserves any other name than the proper one. Switching it to a euphemistic term like "El Cid" would take away a lot of it for me, and I'll be constantly reminded of me not having the patience to get the title done right.

I posted a lengthy post about copyright and this map but it looks like the server ate it.

So I will sum it up. As long as you do not use logotypes belonging to The Citadel, there is no infringement here. Also, if you rty and contact the Citadel people, they will deny you, and will therefore have legal ground to file an injunction. So I wouldn't pass it by them.

I don't think you're naive in any way. Using the real name would probably be best. I don't know anything about the place. However, if there was a good nickname that really captures the spirit, that could be good too.

What's the deal with the "Beta" maps? Possibly you could go with an alternate name during the Beta phase, and then upgrade when the permission slip gets signed. No biggie, I just don't want you to get stranded in the Forge.

Okay, I'm sick and tired of being put on hold by bureaucracy. As far as I'm concerned, my ethical commitment has been fulfilled and I'm finishing this map up. If during beta phase (or whenever) they finally pay attention to me and give me licensing, I'll add it to the map.

Expect Version 24 in this space shortly.
