5) And could u make Roussillon and Corse (or is it Gorse?) touch there territs?

What does bother you with rivers? Consider that I wanted the map to geographically correct so rivers are sometimes impassable borders and sometimes crossable by a bridge or being at the center of a territory. Then they should flow until sea and for me they are part of the graphical definition of the map as i removed any other background.

About the names touching the borders I'm really not sure about that, it will "blur" the borders. It's a pretty common way to put names on a map, putting then on the side of the object designated as I can not put them inside. And drawing a line or an arrow are absolutely contradictory with kind or graphic theme I'm trying to devellop.
But I'll keep in mind your remark and if they are other like this i'll try to find a solution.

Well its up to you how it will affect gameplay but stuff like one way attacks, links from area to area via a shipping line, bonuses for holding castles that kinda malarky.

I agree. Just the capital starting as neutral is enough for this one.

Besides just looking at the latest bunch of 5 or 6 new maps to get quenched I realised that not even one of them has classic gameplay so we need some new maps to cater for this area as well.

I don't think it should boil down to that. These things are something a map maker decides and defines at the start when he is planning a map without making major changes in this department as the map develops.

Keep with the classic gameplay. A mere difference in impassables and a capital bonus are enough to gameplay-wise distinguish this map from the present France. As Ruben has said, we need to deliver some classic maps to the masses after our last glut of complex maps.

No we dont, if people want classic maps they should come in and make them ;)

If we are here to produce to please the masses then we should be paid to do so :)

Well considering that pamoa started this map as a classic gameplay one, I think the choice has already been made. Some people are trying to change that choice for petty reasons.

Hi, I'm back on work.
I think that the more trick issue is closed as nobody argued anymore in that direction.
So I'll stick to the actual version of gameplay.
As soon as possible I'll release a new update but their is a lot of work waiting me here in office so it may take me a week.
I decided to change the paris bonus label as following:
Paris (*) Isle-de-France +1
Any other comments!

As I told you in earlier posts the colour scheme needs to change. It's too hard to differentiate between a region and another with only that thin border of colouring.

Check my previous posts regarding this issue. You should try to fill the region with colour perhaps?

Sorry but it is one of the first decision I took when I started this map. Based on the 18th century way of doing map: White background, black borders and just a border of color for regions. Of course I could have choosen an other graphic chart but I'll stick to this one as I really like it and I'm sorry if you're not pleased with it.

It's not a question of liking or not liking. Have you ever read the map guidelines? A map should be playable for all people on CC even people who are colour blind. The way you have decided to colour the different regions makes it extremely difficult for me to differentiate between a region and another. Besides even Andy has already told you to try something else in earlier posts if I'm not mistaken. You can't ignore these comments and move on.

I am quite surprised you are so adamant to change considering how you insisted I should change my colours on Cyprus, something that in fact I'm going to do to try to please you and others who wanted that change. Would you be happy to have a map that cannot be enjoyed by all the CC community? I'm sure that if you think a bit about it you'll change your mind. Don't get me wrong I like this map or else I wouldn't be commenting on it, but I want to be able to play it, and right now I can't.

Here is an extract from the guidelines in case you missed them. I highlighted the aspects which I feel you are not addressing.

"To earn your graphics stamp you must comply to the following conditions:

1) Image must present itself as clear and legible.
2) The aesthetics must be to a presentable foundry standard and must also satisfy the community at large.
3) Cartographers must ,where possible, reduce any disadvantage that can be caused to a colorblind individual."

I'm not ignoring the problem!
As you can see, I tried the map without colors and it seems to me it is playable even like this:
- regions borders can be clearly idendified as they appear "thicker",
- each different region can visually connected to the one in the minimap by it's position,
- the hatching is improving this differenciation of each region (it is a direct use of the heraldic hatching code for colors in balck and white printing)

Now, Rubben, it seems to me I adressed the problem and find a solution that should fit even fully colorblind people.
Maybe you don't like it on aesthetic point of view, but you must admit that on a practical one I did find a solution.

colour blind doesnt necessarily mean that they just see in black and white, i used the website that (i think) MrBenn suggested..

original:

with Deuteranope Simulation:

with Tritanope Simulation:

i would have done the other one but seeing as this is taking up a lot of space already, and the other is a bit like the 1st, i will leave it out.

Sorry but it's very difficult to read for me or else I wouldn't have said so would I?

I also made some suggestions in previous posts which you never tried out. Perhaps you could make it more similar to the mini map and fill more of the regions with colours. Also some of the colours in regions which are adjacent to one another look nearly the same to me.
