Didn't realize you were talking about the legend. Yeah, that is kind of hard to read. Like it might say Southfast Coast. Which might be a cooler name, though. It's like everybody in Mozambique owns Ferraris.

i had that problem too. Try saving your picture with a different name. Then upload the new file to photobucket. and then post the new pick here in the forums. it should work then.

Ah, the pictures have bee updated now and the Legend is much clearer. It doesn't seem to fit as much, but I'm just being picky. Look forward to giving this map a play or two.

I dislike the lion. It doesn't seem to fit well with the visual quality of the map. It's like putting photo-realstic images in a comic strip made for cartoons. Perhaps something less 'realistic' looking.

I wonder how it would look if the lion were run through a filter to make it look less realistic. Perhaps converting it to brushstrokes or something similar.

That's way too much work. He should just get an image from the Lion King. :P

Maybe would be better if its not used as image, but as a shadow, like the liberty statue in USA map.

I want to say the names of both Zaire are different of the others: they seem more recent (are lighter), but the "T" is fogged in both names.

I like Marv's suggestion about the shadow, I think that would look rather nice and still give it a great visual appeal, rather than how the legend currently is. I also noticed the Zaires, they seem to be on different layers or something of the sort.
