I don't know if it is me or just possibly the color combination. But do the mountains in the North section of the lower island look a bit off. Specifically the ones that border Picton. I get the feeling that they are pyramids rather than mountains, but it could also be the color combination as well since I really can't see the extra detail in the ridges (as shown in the boarders between the bonus's of West Coast and South Canterbury).

It might also occur in the Southland bonus. I didn't have any issue with them when I first looked at the map but after I saw that in the other location it kinda looks like the same thing happened.

Anyway just my novice opinion

I like the look and overall feel of the map and looking forward to playing it.

But given that there was a call out for Graphic Input I thought I would have a look...

1. The mountains could do with some white Snow caps to make them stand out more. Especially the Southern Island around "Queenstown" as it is renowned for its Snow. Please note you have it as "Queentown" on the map bottom right.
2. The ocean can do with some sort of rendering or perhaps even a background image (ie Kiwi bird) similar to what we are starting to see in new or revamped maps (ie USA Maps)

Anyway that's my pennies worth.

Great work cairnswk

I don't know...the backdrop seems kind of flat to me...maybe a center to edge gradient from the map?

Skill. thanks for your opinion... :)
yes those mountains do look like pyramids and it has partly to do with the colouring, but i have altered their shape now in V18, and also the ones in Southland.

Thanks nudge and for your opinion :)
I have re-done the Alps with snow, beefed up the Alps, and fixed the Queenstown spelling
As to the ocean, i have also redone the areas around the mini-map and added your kiwi in the background.

rdsrds2120, thanks also for your opinion.
i do realise the ocean is a bit flat, and have experimented several times now with some kind of gradient, but i seem to always get the wrong thing and don't like it. a radial gradient from the centre makes it look like someone has shone a great big light on it and it si quiet distracting.
For now, i'll leave it as is but if someone else should mention it, i'll have another go later.

I think the flat back is a good fit for the map to be honest.
