AndrewB, some changes to the xml if you would please.
1. the neutrals on PRA have been removed.
2. LOS has been added to Ivory Coast line and YND & ACC moved.
3. TIP added to Gr Northern Line and BGZ moved as has TUN and ALG
4. New line names - can you check those please.
5. Adjusted bonuses for some lines.

This is finished as far as gameplay goes so you should be almost right to wrap up the xml.

I think this is the best-looking of the rail series. Nice job with it cairns ;-)

The only tiny things I can see worth commenting on, is that I'm not a fan of the font you've used at the edge of the ticket. I think a clean typeface (a Futura or Helvetica of some description) would fit nicely, and fit with the background graphical style too.

The other thing I'll mention is that the white edge around the continent might look a little better if it was ever so slightly beige rather than white?

Anyway, neither of these changes have any real significance to moving on...

I'm just saying that I do think proper nouns should be capitalized.

Please refresh to see changes on maps below...
1. Caps on those French names
2. continents outlines changed to cream
3. fonts changed on ticket sides, but the title font is called African so i'd prefer to keep it. :)

Version 17.

              Final Forge

---The Rail Africa Map has reached the ‘Final Forge’ Stage. The map has passed rigorous gameplay and graphics examinations, and major concerns have been addressed. If you have any other concerns, please make your voice heard. If after a reasonable amount of time there has not been any objection or protest, the map will be deemed finished with the 'Foundry Brand' of approval and will be submitted for live play. As long as there is still discussion or posts that have yet to be commented on, the map will remain in Final Forge until said discussion has reached the conclusion that the map has reached its final and polished version.

Post questions and concerns if any.
