I like the idea, but I would like to see an image with a better resolution, please. And maybe we can choose another name to these NA Ice, Russia Ice...

There are a lot of connecting lines - makes it looks a bit messy - are they all necessary?

I'm still working on the better resolution. i cant think of any better names then NA ice and Russia ice (mostly because thats what it is). I'm open to suggestions on the names.

Taking a second look, you're right. I will try to eliminate the lines that aren't necessary in my next map update.

Here's the link to the antarctica map suggestion if you're interested

wait: a bonus of five with four borders and 6 countries? shouldn't it be lower for north america? and if the aleutians could stand out a tad more that would be cool.

I think you mis-counted North America has 3 borders and 7 countries (unless I mis-counted). It might still be worth a 4. I did try to make the aleutian islands stand out more, but im not sure if I suceeded, you be the judge. Anyways, here's the latest version of the map.

Edit: this is no longer the current version. Keep scrolling down.

I did. It's actually 5 borders, 7 countries. Keep it at 5 (I didnt count the aleutians the 1st time.)

I've worked on the graphics, let me know what you think.
Note: It is currently a bmp image. I will change it to a jpeg/gif/png image later. I am only working with a bitmap image, because that's what I'm most familiar with.
Edit: I finally figured out how to make the image appear larger.

I don't know if it's been talked about, but the font's horribly difficult to read.

it's almost as bad as mine :) which in my eyes is ok. but the textures are a little bit... ehh *moves side of hand in seesaw-like fashion* and it's tough determining which queen elizabeth islands are part of which country. and btw, murmansk is considered scandinavia by most people.
