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,

Put me down for the same responses as .44

Was planning to answer but then realized I was just paraphrasing him lengthily.

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!

I'll fix the type-o's - thanks.
I'll play around with the type-face and size a little more.

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.
