i think it is better without army circles, the army circles detract from the bright and colourful feel of the map

I second this notion, is anyone opposed to a lack of army circles? The only problem I could see is color confusion with the background.

They're not technically the correct 88's I don't think?!

Whoopsie. I think the problem with the 88 lies in the last size reduction I did without changing the font back. Must have scaled down to 12.33 or something :roll:

Okay, here's version 6 (freaking finally).

Changes:
-Bunches
-Fixed every attack route; added in new routes to the boats
-Flipped Pacific Boat
-Migrated key north
-Added in new bonus key
-Tweaked the border near Mexico a little
-Touched up the compass to make it less shtort
-Er, other things

Issues:
-I think a little red line just appeared in the Pacific though I'm not sure, I'll get back to you on that :lol:
-Attack routes:
a. I personally like the different colors a lot, others might not: comment!
b. They seem to be a little busy, as in there's too many of them now and all over the freaking place. I like them, but don't know how I feel about this.
c. May have to move the compass/resize/lower its opacity as it's getting crowded over there
-Still need to add the Atlantic Sea Routes name (forgot and they were uploaded/saved by that time so psha)
-Army circles or not? I think the Sea Routes ones might need them regardless but who knows

Hopefully we can get a bunch of good criticism this round to move things along quicker. The small map will come back into play once all this attack route junk is handled.

Thanks!

if you look at your sig compared to the compass in the actuall map, the one in the map is still rather short

Contemplating adding a slight outer glow on the territ borders.

The black is kinda plain/bland, though it does fit the scheme.

Any other ideas for the next draft?

if you were to put an outer glow, i would advize it to be a very light yellow

In my honest opinion lgoasklucyl I can say I see any progress with your map. There is alot I don't like about it right now.

-The boats to me satnd out as an elemet that doesn't fit the general theme of the map.
-The sea route lines don't look all to great to me either. I feel they are to detailed for what they are. I would suggest making them all one colour (black or grey) and removing (or geatly reduce) the bevel.
-I know the compass is there to fill some dead space but I don't think its style is justifable on this map. Its colours are to pale and its patterns don't like to the rest of the theme in any way.

Those are my major concerns, I have some smaller ones but I think there is enought there for you to think about just now. I bid you good luck :)
What do you know about map making, bitch?
