Cool map!

-I dont like the forest near Melaky, the green circles are noticeably just green circles.
-The army circles are a little pixely. Maybe you could have a more unique one anyway...like a lemur head or something.
-The colors are a little too similar, and it may be hard to tell which is which....
-IMO the mts look...slimy...if no one else cares, i wouldnt worry about that.
-Maybe some recognizable Madagascar images in the bg?

-All of the bigger bonuses are on the bottom of the map, but that may not be bad. Im just pointing that out.

Just some points, take em or leave em

I think you should make a mini map to portray the bonuses.

i totally agree - its a bit on its own and doesnt fit in...

interesting idea - i might try that ;) :lol:
Kaplowitz wrote:-The colors are a little too similar, and it may be hard to tell which is which....

i dont really see any similarities in the colours! - apart from the beigey colur and the brown - mainly on the legend/key
Kaplowitz wrote:-IMO the mts look...slimy...if no one else cares, i wouldnt worry about that.

mmm - its just a line with 0% hardness with bevel on it - thats all so its nothing special lol - i might try and make some better ones but not in the next update
Kaplowitz wrote:-Maybe some recognizable Madagascar images in the bg?

maybe i dont know - thats not a big deal for the mo - i will try that in a later version :)
Kaplowitz wrote:-All of the bigger bonuses are on the bottom of the map, but that may not be bad. Im just pointing that out.

hmm...is that a big problem?
if the big bonuses were at the bottom and there were some small ones next to it, if they held the big one they could easily take the small ones and win quicker - so i dont see that as a problem

take 'emm cheers :)

The minimap would be instead of the legend box, so yes, you'd have room. I think a minimap would probably look better.

I still think the ocean and both kind of impassables need work.

You overcorrected the rotation on the N and S in the legend. E is properly rotated, but needs to be moved a pixel or two down to bring it in line with the compass point.

yes about the E
the S seems a bit wonkey - but the N - well i have bad eye sight so i dont know what to do with that - wanna tell me which way it need turning? :lol:

for the mountains (those are mountains, right?), could you make them more rough like real mountains. right now its just a constant line and its not really working for me...

I like the newest army circles you used. You should keep them.

Actually, I'm starting to wonder if you need army circles at all. Could you throw up some 88s quickly? I think the colors are plain enough that you could get away without them.

Also, you're missing a circle on Itasy ;)

I really don't know how to do mountains because I've never tried to make them.
Since your trees are kinda cartoon-y, maybe you could do the same for the mountains, kinda like the mountains used on the Germany map.
Or go for more traditional mountains like those on the Great Lakes map.

Cartoon ones look to be a bunch of copy-paste.
If you are good with drawing things by hand in photoshop, you might want to try the realistic ones on Great Lakes. Because they look pretty good.

Just put something instead of the solid brown lines.
