I think that, once Antarctica gets quenched, in some way the entire globe has been "explored." Each continent has at least one map dedicated to it at this point. If anything, South America is one of the most under-represented--it's only got the South America, Triple Alliance and Brazil maps, right? There have to be other specific areas of South America to explore (just like there are many in Africa that should be). Maybe a detailed map of Tierra del Fuego?

Oh, and it goes without saying that I think this is a great map--especially with the continuity off of his last one. I hope it gets through the foundry as quick as possible.

As an aside, perhaps I'm in minority, but I'm not a fan of the South America map atall. A North American revamp was tried recently and people seemed opposed to it. Perhaps there's more support for a South America revamp?

Good luck Tisha. I am sure you will be fixing the colors a bit to make it more in line with North America. :)

Yeah that's what I'm getting at: more "micro-regions" that aren't too small, like San Marino and some of the city maps.

By the way, I was thinking about Tisha's map and I thought her bridges could be those really perilous ones with slats missing, like you see in Indiana Jones :) But not sure if these can be represented clearly on such a small scale...

Anyone notice that Central America is getting the shaft? I dare say it may be too late to include more regions on the N. America map but I think there is the possibility of including them on this map.. at the very least Panama and maybe Trinidad. Perhaps shrink the continent slightly and move it over to the east some and you can fit more of Central America, I think.

The colors are a tad too saturated, even in comparison with the N. America map. I'm in favor of toning it down a notch or so.

For some reason I imagined South America to be featured in cool colors rather than warm as a nice contrast with the N. America map. Obviously the decision is yours, but I'm just suggesting.

I'm having trouble with color differentiation as well... There are three regions south of the amazon, correct? The colors don't seem to match the corresponding legend also. A little tweaking with them should do.

As for Chilean Archipelago, isn't an archipelago a group of islands? I dunno if its the title of he area anyway and you took it from that, but it's kind of misleading.

Anyway, looks great, I'm looking forward to seeing this progress.

That's hot.

(the map, I mean)

The rivers are a little too strong, but this looks great overall.

??? is the correct answer.

Not much to say…hmm, besides the obvious bridges on which you've already remarked (and for which I can't really think of a replacement atm), I see you made the rivers lighter. In fact, I think it would be the other way around; N. America's rivers are lighter in color I believe.

Blatant northern-hemisphere-centric rubbish view!

Until we have Brazil Apocolypse, Argentina Map Pack, Cocaine Route, Columbian Jungle Warfare etc etc etc, we wont even be half-way to having "that continent covered".

Would be interesting to incorporate central america too - although it would be tricky game-play-wise as there would be a crazy columbian bottleneck (unless there are mexico to chile sea-routes or similar).

Nice map - stick with it :D
