another arctic-themed map would be nice. I love the maps with cool colors.

Where are the dog-paddling polar bears?

Maybe throw in a few more islands (more Aleutians and more Pribiloffs) and have a few fewer terits in alaska and siberia and call it the Bering Sea. And watch a few episodes of Deadliest Catch for some flavor. :D

I agree about more islands. The color scheme in the last one you posted doesn't look very arctic...

Yea, I agree. The colors don't look good. How should I distinguish the different continents withough making them too colorful?

I think they could all be different colors, but very cold colors. Blues, whites, etc. Nothing too bright. You could also use a different texture for each continent, maybe? But that really changes the style, and I'm not sure for the better. Play around with it - if it's not visible enough, we'll deal with it then ;)

Yea, I think just using different shades of blue and white would do best. But mabye it would be best to get further along before worrying about graphics.

I posted the idea some time ago in the map ideas thread, and I'm glad to see this map being made. (to the kiddies who'll see this as me taking credit or anything like that, you're all idiots).



well I'm not really sure how you can distinguish the colours more, but I'd like to hear how the separations of continents came about.

It looks like you've split Alaska in two (I'd like to hear if this is based on any reality or just (this looks like a good spot to split it up) and have a Canada continent. I'm not familiar with Russia so I don't really know what happened there.

Furthermore, how did the territory separations come about? Based on counties in Alaska? Purely made up?


I think you've got 40 territories and it wouldn't hurt to try and get the 'classic' 42
