what's the story on this?

I think basically everybody except Marvaddin would be OK with a graphics stamp for this save possibly a couple minor issues


Is there border redrawing that "needs" to be done or is that in the past?

Well I redrew the borders, but haven't posted the update yet. I stated working on getting the correct spellings in, but my font was all capitals - so i was struggling with that a bit. I'll get around to it.

Hello! Well, I'm new here in the game, but I saw this topic and wanted to help. I am brasilian, and any doubts just ask to me. :D

Just answering, the cedilha is never capitalized, cause it can't be used as the first letter of the word. But, even when all the letters are capitalized you need to keep the accent marks. So, Foz do Iguaçu and São Luiz continue to be FOZ DO IGUAÇU and SÃO LUIZ. The accent marks are very important in portuguese, in the writing and in the pronounce, so plz, if possible, write then in the map. ;)

I'm going to look both maps again and give a opinion. :D

What are the non crossing borders supposed to be? They don't really look like anything now.

Just think lines. They are not supposed to represent anything.

who doesnt like a map that improves the brazil map?

1) Some places the borders go past where they are supposed to, and at others for some reason they seem pixely
2) Some names are a little hard to read
3) I dont really care for how the Non-Crossing Borders and mini-map take up mostly vertical space. Have you thought of putting them in a box maybe? or maybe moving the Non-Crossing Borders into the lower left corner between the mini-map and the outer border?


I cant think of anything else than that, its a great map!

Maybe I like it so much because I have had bad luck on that map. Not sure, but I might play it more now.

Hey, how is this discuss going? Nobody asked anything to me...

But ok...I saw while reading the post that was a discuss about the territory names...so, exist in Brasil some projects of creations of new states, that are important regions...so I searched and found a map with some of the "new" states, in north and northeast areas...still have more, but only this ones is enough...

Well, as I dont know how the discuss is going I ll post my opinions...

1- I love the news versions of the map! They are really good!!! The colors, the design! They are really beautiful! A kind of stereotype, but really good!!! \o/...but, in the second one, the rotation confused me...its strange to look it...you feel lost...

2 - That more 2 things strange to me...well, do all maps here in CC have to be in English? Because It's easy to read...it isnt really a problem, but seens that is wrote wrong without the accents marks...as its strange Brasil wroted with "z"...

If marv's totally okay with having his country represented by the bar-none ugliest map on this site, if he's so up his own ass about his artistic genius that he can't see that RJ is producing a map that makes the original look like cave paintings, then let the revamp as a whole die.

Okay - so I fixed the accents in the names. Slightly modified the legend. Anyone want to critique this map? I know it's been months and months since I left off - sorry bout that.

Here's some points:
1) Do you like the yellow/brown square border around the map?
2) Do you like all the trees in the background?
3) Do you like the non-crossing border? It was pink before, now it's a greenish/yellowish hue.
4) Is the legend too big? Should there be a text legend instead of the minimap?
5) Is the font style okay on the map? It's very plain I know, but I couldn't find anything else I'm happy with.
6) Overall colors okay - for colorblind folks?

Thanks

1) Do you like the yellow/brown square border around the map?
I think it's too precise in comparison to the rest of the map … maybe a tiny bit of blur?
2) Do you like all the trees in the background?
Yep, they look nice.
3) Do you like the non-crossing border? It was pink before, now it's a greenish/yellowish hue.
Better than before.
4) Is the legend too big? Should there be a text legend instead of the minimap?
No, I think it's fine as is.
5) Is the font style okay on the map? It's very plain I know, but I couldn't find anything else I'm happy with.
I like it.
6) Overall colors okay - for colorblind folks?
:-s

Could you move Porto Velho and Alagoas's army circles more into the territory?

Looks really great,

For colorblind checking see Vischeck web site where you can simulate colour-blind results.
In this case North West and Central North are the same for deuteranope (a form of red/green color deficit) people.

A small tweak of the red/green regions should help the colourblind issues - make one a little darker, and the other a little lighter.

I think the colourblind issue should be the only legitimate concern from my perspective...

So the border looks too precise. I like it, but I guess I'll try something a bit different.

Yep.


Yes I'll see about fixing the color blind thing. Thanks all.
