I think Russia, Persia and Central Asia should stay, but not Burma and Siberia! They're a bit too far away to be included and it doesn't look good to have territory labels on the right side of the legend. Let that area of the map be a mystery :).

The sea route looks much clearer now btw.

I don't know, I mean I don't really feel like they're hurting anything. Most people probably won't even notice them until the 2nd or 3rd time they play the map.

=D> =D> Looking forward to be playing this on beta :)!
Regarding the subtle names I still feel the same. A bit distracting with Siberia and Burma. Don't feel like they need to be there and they certainly don't add anything to the map even if they don't subtract much either.

No one cares if the names are there or not.

I actually like those names. It was a tiny pleasant surprise to realize that India was completely masked by the legend. I have nothing against India, it was just a matter of recognizing the size and position of these places. Sort of "Well, what do you know about that?"

I like the three west of the legend. The two east of the legend looks a little out of place though. I didn't realize India was covered at first either. Came as a little surprise :).

I think we are ready to go. I posted a version here, and I don't think anything that has changed since then would affect the XML. So I think we can go with Colonial_Africa_2.4.xml.

It was kinda fun watching your avatar dance to that clip, TBK. Of course, playing this map would be better.

Ok it's been over a month now, since I submitted the XML for approval. I'm hoping I'll see a stamp in the next couple days.
