XML posted a month ago foundry people, maybe someone could look at it sometime? That would be swell...

I know i'm a mapmaking virgin, but a month seems a little excessive to check a few lines of code... Just sayin...

Sorry for the long delay.

I have checked the XML and the small looks good. The large on the other hand has three minor things to be fixed.
1 - Elizabeth, move the name up a bit as there will be a problem with the double digits plus color code covering the name.
2 - Atlantic City, the coordinates need to be moved down and to the left a tad bit, and lastly
3 - Wildwood can be moved a tad bit to the left.

Get these done, post the test results here and we can finally get this stamped!

1. I like the bending trees. This map has a bit of whimsy to it. ;)
2. I don't think the name needs to be centered, but I don't really care either way.

The only thing graphical element about the map I am not as fond of are the mountains since they don't quite fit the style of execution you have going with the cow and the bridge and trees and the bird, etc, but they're good enough probably.

I didn't think I'd want to play on a New Jersey map when development first started, but I'd probably add this map to my rotation.

This is really coming along! I like the 1950s beach couple. It fits in well with the postcard theme.

1. there's a vertical crease in the paper that mysteriously manages to hide behind the continents and then reappear.
2. as andy said, the mountains don't fit with the style of the map or the style of the other icons.
3. some borders are fuzzy and "dirty". for example in the image bellow chech out the river ending, or to the right, in the little golf at the edge, the black border is thick then it suddenly narrows. or 5px SE of the word city, there seems to be some "dirt" on the border.
Image
4. an itsy bitsy bump in the border:
Image
5. the river in the upper right corner continues far outside the playing area but the river in philipsburg ends abruptly.
6. the title while being awesome in itself (gotta love those old postcards), doesn't really fit with the map at all. first, everything is flat but the title is 3D, second, everything on the map has a cartoony hand drawing feel while the title has sharp straight letters with actual photos in it. wavy flat hand drawn cartoons and sharp crisp 3d photorealism in the same image...
