Ok I have made some changes to the map.

I have revised the bonuses. Also note that if you have the three main cities (one of them being the capital) you get a 3 unit bonus but not a 3 + 1 bonus for owning the capital.

I have also added a sea route from Mgarr to Sannat to make Gozo more accesible.

It looks as it has been made with colouring pencils, I suggest you ditch that look. The background doesnt look very watery either.

The same is also the case in the Montreal map with Downtown. So just 1 for the capital shoudn't be a problem here I think.

I still say North and South Gonzo are too High, they're easier to hold onto than North and NE Malta.

Change the sea colour anyway, it looks off.

I haven't had the time to give the map a proper look over at the moment, hopefully I'll have time later tonight.

The look and feel....I like it. It's different and unique...unlike anything else on CC. I'd suggest though maybe making things a little less strikingly bright, but keep the over all feel you have going. Perhaps we may look into toning down the ocean slightly, but that is a minor issue.

That's it for now, when I have more time, I will be back!

Ok since many people have been complaining on the background I started working on an alternate version of the map with a different background. I have also created different regions and the total number is now 44. Which one do you prefer, version 1 or version 2 (seen below).

Ok I will put up a poll so that people can vote. I think I prefer the first one as well...

I voted #2, I think it would be better as a "watermark", though.

I have no objections with the original look, with the exception of impassable objects which I've already mentioned. It's nice a bright, and the colours are varied so there's no confusion about which territory is which.
