I don't suppose Middle East style watermarks for the continents would be possible...

I don't think that this region would look at all good in a middle east styled map. I like how he is doing it now. Icy and simple. That pretty much describes the region.

Since you're going for what seems to be the "Rand McNally political" look, perhaps add longtitude and latitude lines to the map to give it another thematic nudge.

The map looks awesome, it looks nice and simple which is really good, it reminds me a little of the new Iceland map for the same reason. I am really liking the look of it. Nice one Lanyards :D

It is a very clean and sharp looking map, but it isn't quite up to the level of the Iceland map, nothing on this site is in my opinion. I'm excited to play this one when you get it finished, lanyards. You know I love a good clean map. :)

I'm a bit confused by the ports being the same color as two corresponding continents instead of their own color. :? That's the only improvement I can see, as their being their own color would help further clarify that they are not a part of any existing continent.

a second arctic map! this map is very clean but, at these northerly latitudes, the traditional mercator projection (where north is directly upward on all parts of the map) distorts the distances a lot: the two land masses ought to be closer to each other at the top of the map than they are just now and further away at the bottom. to give the right shape of land and sea, the lines of latitude must curve in a smiling way. this can be approximated reasonably easily (if not entirely accurately) by cutting the map in two, then rotating north america anticlockwise.

Maybe you should make it North American Continents instead of American continents to make it more geographically correct.
Canada is in America. Right?

if canada is in america, then russia is in asia. the legend is inconsistent. the continents can be either be russian, american (of the usa) and canadian or asian and american (of north and south america). having only russian and american clearly implies that yukon is part of the usa and will be interpreted by many people as such.

can u rename siberia continent as chukotka? the entire visible left-hand landmass could perhaps be described as siberia in a loose sense, but none of it is part of the russian federal district of siberia. pepperonibread's soviet union map shows the boundaries of chukotka.

i dislike the use of each continent's colours twice. it suggests that there is some gameplay or bonus link between continents of the same colour, which there isn't.

the ports need to be a neutral-looking colour (white or grey, perhaps?) rather than being the same colour as one (or two!) of the continents. the attack routes from the ports are very clear.

Glad to see a big Alaska map. Having lived there, though, I think some of the names are a bit off for the regions. Fairbanks is too far to the east--that one could more appropriately be called "Tok". And the "Yukon" territory in Alaska is confusing with the whole other Yukon Territory in Canada--it might more accurately be called "Prudhoe Bay" or "ANWR". Love the look of the gameplay!

But regardless - this is looking rather nice. I would have to agree with coleman to make the ports different. Not anchors, as that's been done - but something else. Maybe ships?

Just a few notes:

  • It's Kodiak Island, not Kodlak
  • Siberia is really the name of an entire region spanning most of eastern Russia, and includes Kamchatka and Sakha within its regional boundaries. That region in the sky blue is typically called Chukotka.
  • The new colours don't correspond to the legend

Aside from that looks fine.

Annnnnnd 4 years later I have an update :)

here is the previous version

here is the newest version

Corrected a few territory names, and changed the style.

Most of the people commenting before I'm sure are long gone from here so maybe I'll be getting some new perspective :)

Is the new style the direction I should go or should I go back to the cool colors?

It's passed "a bit" of time, for now I'm going to move it into the drafting room. I will review the whole thread asap to understand what was the status of development of the map when it was binned and after that I'll post here some suggestions. Hopefully, this time we will guide this map through the foundry. ;)
