I wonder if there is some way to focus the game-map so it is clearly differentiated from the keys (which set out the region bonuses) ... at the moment the focus is equally on the map and the keys ... maybe it's the flatness of the sea going everywhere. Not sure if I'm being clear here but the keys are distracting in a way and the sea does seem a bit drab. I haven't got an answer to that at this stage and will think on it but hopefully you get what I mean.

Andy suggested it in another thread and I will say the same thing in this one about the sea. Try something like England for it maybe. Then you can have a darker part running between the 3 to break it all up a tad while keeping it all on the same level. If you get my meaning.

Leave it how it is. Don't really agree with V. 14 or comments.

Maybe i need to simply reduce the opacity of the mini-maps so they don't stand out so much and give more prominence to the actual map....yes?

I'll leave it to you but I liked both your suggestions but particularly liked 14a ... what was Nola's suggestion - was he happy with v13?

Either would be good but 14a does have a nice look to it.

Looking at this again, and was going to suggest reducing the opacity on the minimaps. 14a is where it should be!

I like them both, but maybe 14b more so slightly. Cairnswk, if you prefer one or the other, I'd go with whatever you have a preference for probably.

Keep up the good work. Glad to see this getting down in the final stretches.

There seems to be a bit of support for V14a, so here is v15.

Ooh, I like V15 with the faded minimaps with their modified coastal waters. In fact, softening the boundary of the water colours might be a nice addition to the main map.

As for the bridges, they look a little too much like Catdog for my tastes. Would they show up if they were just a framework of cables like a suspension bridge, not filled with colour?

i'm thinking i might simply have to revert to something very simple.
