Yakaminka colour is heading into Akademicheskiy. Bottom left pic in frame- can you tone down the blue sky, it looks like it is a wonderful day but out of place.

cairns, I only have one thing that I might change and this would be completely up to you as it really is aesthetics would be the gold circle in the middle. Could you make it the same thickness as the lettering in the title?

the correct spelling is nagornyy, not nagomyy.

in the legend, instead of referring to outer region bonuses, i suggest outer district bonuses or outer suburb bonuses. this is not only more appropriate for a city map, but avoids confusion with other uses of the word region in cc. similarly, inner region pair can be replaced by inner suburb pair.

With it being that thick, the connections from inner to outer suburbs are very small at Tverskoe and Krasnoselskoe so these might get missed. Making those two gaps larger alone would be nice. As for the thickness itself, the shiny gold in the middle of the matt suburbs is a little bright. Toning it down would not be the best idea as gold should be shiny but unlike the title, it detracts from the map itself, hence, reducing of the thickness.

Are you going to put the names of the bonuses anywhere?

It's not a big issue, but if I were in a team game I might say "go for that green bonus over there, you know the one I mean".

Great looking map as always cairns, I really like the mosaic, which is pretty different but what I would expect from you. I have to agree with Koontz though, the inner gold ring is too thick, and a little distracting. Also, no offense, but with it being so big it looks a little cheesy and fake. Making it thinner will give you a little more room for the inner ring names, and god knows what magic you can do with an extra pixel or two. I also like the stars indicating the bonuses, and don't think naming them does much but take up more space. Team games can always use tert names as indicators, etc., but I'm sure you're creative juices are flowing already.

Keep up the great work.

cairns, what where you going to call the bonuses anyway? I have to agree with Seamus, using the territ names instead of bonus names seems to be the norm for me in team games anyway.
