Short answer: #4. I kinda like that it "looks real", not "gamish". I do however concur on someone else's comment that the font used makes the "continent bonuses" hard to read.

That's the kind of thing that we can still hammer out after a winner is chosen. The way I look at it these are still drafts - and each one of them looks considerably better than my typical first map draft! Once the winner hits the Foundry for feedback we can expect that problems like font size can be hammered out.

Colours can also be lightened, darkened or even changed after this. I think people need to vote for style instead of, colours and brightness which can both be easily changed ;)

72-69 for map 1 right now... shaping up to be yet another close vote.

(I was kinda hoping we'd have a nice landslide with a clear winner, but oh well... just shows that we have more than one solid entry, I guess.)

Perhaps if the votes are too close, the Admins and Foundry C.A's can vote amongst themselves rather than have another public vote ;) It would be a shame if one map got 1 more vote than the other like last time...

i voted 2 because it feels like it has some central American 'flavour', colours work well together etc, i think it has a better chance of being polished into something fantastic, its an edge to it (i think its the ocean that does it)

I understand a mapmaker wanting to drum up support, as long as it is done tastefully (posting in other public forums, for instance, is just obnoxious). In any case the mapmaker runs the risk of handing votes to another map, as is the case here! :lol:

one guy had a bunch of multi accounts vote for him. I'm not saying HE made them but multi accounts (they never said whose) voted for his map.

the other guy was disillusioned with CC so he decided to drop out.
