I don't get it. There's been a whole lot of arguing about saturation/brightness/... and there was a good compromise everyone agreed on.
If I go to page 1 of this thread now, the map looks beautiful.
But go to "Game Finder" and click the thumbnail there (or FWIW, just have a look at a game) and say what you see.
I see a muted, 'dead' version of the colourful map you created here.

This just isn't true. On the old Risk board, sure. But geographically, the Ural Mountains are typically considered the east/west boundary between the two continents (north of the Black Sea). Moscow is well west of the Urals. Culturally, religiously and historically, Moscow is also more European than Asian. The only way Moscow is not European at the moment is politically. Regardless, I digress. Geographically--the only thing that really matters here--Moscow is in Europe.danfrank wrote:Moscow is considered geographically to be apart of ASIA not Europe

88's are on page 37 if you would like to check alignment. Whenever someone mentioned there was a centering issue I corrected it, though I suppose some could still be slightly off.
