Here is my absolutely final update (I hope)... There are no changes to the small map, but I have made some minor tweaks on the large one... all the army numbers are exactly the same distance (3px) from the territory name. I've redrawn a tiny bit of border by the Ial number, and shifted those names to get it to fit properly.

Here's the XML with the adjusted coordinates: http://www.fileden.com/files/2009/1/9/2 ... XML_05.xml

ok, so i know you wanted this to be ur last update, but i am thinking that you should lessen the opacity on the borders, the actuall land is translucent, and looks like part of the paper behind, but the lines just look like theyre lying on top

OK, I've just spent 5 mins playing around with the opacity of the borders, but it just makes them look more grey and lose definition. To get the background to show through, you have to turn the opacity quite low, and it just makes the lines look rubbish. Suggestion denied :lol:

Ireland is not part of Britian the term british isles bothers me enough but going as far to call Ireland British is too far


Great Britain = Landmass containing England, Scotland and Wales
Ireland = Landmass containing Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland

British isles = Great Britain + Ireland


The term British Isles is simply the geographical term for the two islands, it's a historical term and modern day politics have no bearing on it.

Mrbenn didn't say Ireland was part of Britain.
