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.

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

Yep.


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

Yehhhhhhhh! Finally!!! :D
So I'll answer too ^^

1) Do you like the yellow/brown square border around the map?

Yeah! I liked very much.

2) Do you like all the trees in the background?

Yeah! Very much. I love they =D

3) Do you like the non-crossing border? It was pink before, now it's a greenish/yellowish hue.

Yeah, its much better.

4) Is the legend too big? Should there be a text legend instead of the minimap?

No, I think its ok.

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.

It isnt bad, but the font you used on the minimap looked better for me.

6) Overall colors okay - for colorblind folks?

I dont know... :?



Just more things I saw:
- Thanks for fixing the accent marks, its very better now...
- 2 territories are with their names wrong: its not "Foz do Lguaçu", is "Foz do Iguaçu" and its not "Triaângulo", its "Triângulo".
- I think the territory names are too small...


And thanks for your amazing job!

Its looking really nice, but i think you should move the legend more to the corner and extend the border so that it goes around the legend.

not sure I understand. If you mean move the legend to the right corner, and extend the map borders so it's not the "floating" map, then I can't do that. It wouldn't be right since this is the map that was voted for.

I was saying to move the legend more to the left corner, and extend the brown and yellow outer border so that it makes a box around the legend.

Have you guys read the thread, or looked at the old Brazil map?
The impassables are not supposed to look like anything, and RJ was told specifically to NOT make them look like mountains or rivers or anything.... they're fine as they are, and I think they got a bit better in the last update ;-)

The only thing that irks me is that the font on the minimap is different from that of the territory names - but this could just be a matter of personal taste, and my personal dislike for handwriting-style fonts that look too obviously like they're fonts and not genuine handwriting!

I know it's a trivial thing...but would it be possible to have the name of the map change to Brasil with an S instead of a Z as it's written in Portuguese?

There's the ordem e progresso motto in the background and I would like to see Brasil written in its native language.

Also another small thing...is non crossing borders grammatically correct? I always thought it wasn't on the old map but I'm not sure. Wouldn't non crossable borders be better?
