Well....i must agree with you, isnt that the part where it gets the Graphics stamp?
I allways thought of it, get the graphics stamp only when graphics look amazing :)

About the Paris map, i like the bottom of it, with the monuments and and a nice legend , the rest i just find it a mess :)
The big change is a google map underneath the stations
But i believe in the improvement of things and more than one people giving opinions to make stuff better

Graphics, game play stamps all come when they come. But you work on it all, all the time.

I used Paris as a comparison as it is a metro map as well and it has a lot of similarities. But you get the meaning now, basic map needs to go for a makeover. Use the guidance given and take on any suggestions, but remember, this is your map and you need to let us know which way you want to go.

The cobbles(calçada Portuguesa) will stay outside, but the inside will have something too, is this what u meant before?
A few graphic stuff will get rearrangements in the future, as i wanted to organize a bit of gameplay first.

About the zones i gave a suggestion in a previous post, about x number of territs in a zone=x numer or bonus
But as soon i will get the zones designed set i will probably pop up a few more ideas

Cheers

Why the different styles for the background? Like the water though.

You mean drawing styles from the bottom onnes to the upper one?

Still doing some research to check what works best
I prefer the bottom style, but i like the pic from the castle, so i need to find out what works best

Correct, the two bottom ones are nice but the top one seems a bit heavy for this.

The background is a great idea. Instead a different background in every zone I would compose one background that blends into each other.

The castle can use some cleaning. I presume you filtered it with detect edges but the buildings have some strange double lines.

The 4 zones are not really working for me. There are also enough other options to get a bonus.

Congrats! It's looking good :)

Are all regions distributable? Will the bus and ferry stations start neutral? ..

Armandolas, 4 zones but the legend only states 3. Cross hatched tower top of legend still has the white behind it.

Red, yellow and blue lines in zone 1 are all very close to each other. You have the room so it might be nice to use it and spread your map out a tad.

Armandolas, here is my only problem at the moment with this map. Everything looks fine, game play is coming along nicely, graphics are moving forward also, but this still does not say Lisbon to me (what it says is a city that is drab and dull - sorry O:) ). This is your part of the world. What is their about Lisbon that a non native would know. What is their that would make me want to come to Lisbon. Try to find something that says here is my home town, come and visit us, here is why. Have a think on that, try to come up with something and then see if you can incorporate it into the map.

Keep up the great work.

I will fix the legend, it is clearly a type mistake
Also have to clear that white in the bridge, thanks.
About the lines being too close, i didnt wanted to change the original format of the line, but maybe its worth a try.
And about being dull or drab, sry but i dont have the talent to create a masterpiece that pleases you ;)
Or maybe we just have completely distinct taste on graphics. I just cant do much better than this.

It is not so much dull and drab, that is fine, I like the greys and blacks (loved the Paris metro one as well). This is me not explaining myself clearly. What I mean and have failed to convey is this, I like the style but if I look at this map without the title of Lisbon Metro on it, what is their to say this is Lisbon. I could put Edinburgh Metro and have a winner. That statue at the top of the legend also looks like another famous statue in Rio, so again, put Rio in place of Lisbon, we have a map.
