The transit ways looks great. It does help connect the map and prevent that wave that happens sometimes.
Other than cosmetic, I think it's shaping up well.

just to make the map look a bit more cool, why don't u add some mountains or forests to the north. just for visual pleasure...

It would appear that development of this map has stalled. If the mapmaker wants to continue with the map, then one of the CAs will be able to help put the thread back into the Foundry system, after an update has been made. ;-)

I played with some forest/mountains to the top ... will have to come up with some prototypes next time I'm at work (where the map lives.) The photo I stuck in there looked funny, but I think with proper effect (brightness/contrast, hue, something) it could work. Or were you thinking of hand drawn little trees and mountains? or maybe even the skyline (lions, ski hills at night, etc.)? Do I leave the USA bits as they are, or give them some interest as well?

And is there anything else, cosmetic or no, that still needs work?

Are we keeping port/border bonuses or no? The latest map lacks them.

i'm not one with graphics bt maybe scan over some of the other maps and see how they did the "surrounding" pics... thats probably the best way to go

You need to work on the text … but other than that why is this in the dead projects?

I think it was declared 'dead' because I hadn't worked on it in 10 days or so, no posts in the forum for a week.

Is it just the small map, or does the large map's text displease you? The small map, I haven't actually made one yet. I'll throw one together with pretty text when next I can.

I was looking at the most recent post, not yours. My bad.

No, I meant the colors, especially in the orange area.

I think I see what he means. While the text effect works when the background is a similar colour, it makes the text hard to read when the background is an opposite colour.

I've changed it: http://www.atomation.com/~thazzard/fun/gva/dec15.jpg

Bold + white ... maybe it's too much now. Certainly easier to read.
