the impassable gold circles is representational and meant to show that the section is impassable...of course on the map there are 5 sections. It is fine.

Can you place the 888's in the stars as well cairns? I think the the 888's will overlap a couple of the region names in a couple of places, especially on the small.

no, isaiah40, i cannot place the 888s in the stars, because the stars are not territories, and 888s should not be in the stars.
the 888s are on the small map. did you have too much xmas cheers this morning? or simply wake up on the wrong side of the bed? :)
or simply fail to read the legend about the stars?

The impassable ring is very pixelly, especially on the top portion of it. Also the bottom right inset doesn't look as good as the other 3 insets. I see a lot of black pixels on the building. Can you try and clean it up a bit??

NO, this is the way that is comes out of the CorelDraw functions.
I have masked the gold rings sections when doing the gold process so that it wouldn't pixelate too much, however it still occurs.
On the corner images, these are 4 different images that have differing elements, i have tried to apply the same watercolour process to them so they turned out much the same.
I see a lot of black in all images...and am happy with them. :)

top and bottom ones what...pictures or gold rings.
(if pictures) from previous post you stated bottom right, so please explain better which ones you are refering to.
I don't have a problem with any of them. :)
Also, i am getting the feeling that if i don't fix these the map will not be stamped. Is this now a condition for stamping.
I feel i have justified my position well, and given you adequate explanation of what occurs in my software.

At this last minute point, no! I am happy with the gold rings, as is the person who previously requested they be fixed.

cairns, with the two gold rings that isaiah pointed out, some things can be done quickly to improve them I am sure. But my only thing is why is the one at Presnensoe look different from the others? It looks smoother and darker than all the rest.

Honestly it's almost X-mas and I should be more relaxed and happy than how I am right now. Part of this is not related with CC, just I have a difficult and uncommon situation at home these days...and it is exactly for this reason that I would like to log in CC and have fun.
Instead it's some time that almost every single day I have to hear something really annyoing.
What isaiah40 asked was said to me, there's a pixels party on your golden rings and also you have some things on the map that have no sense to my eyes. (e.g. xml can't be shortened, what the .... is an abbreviation for another one?)

Anyway, we have a system to do things, the system is used for everyone here. When a CA change to sticky a topic, he also makes a call in our private forum, so all other CAs can give final suggestion for that stage.
As said the suggestion come from me, isaiah is only the man who is speaking for everyone in this case.
This is not a last minute change, I don not see graphics stamp on this topic.
So you don't want to change graphics after the stamp is given, you don't want to change graphics before the stamp just for the sake of not changing them (when there're concerns and the graphics are not up to the standard). You rarely listen nolefan because it's new....at this point I'm wondering if you want we all leave our positions and you can rule this place....
Please, draw maps, follow what CAs say....and if there's something you don't like please try to explain to me what you don't like.
But stop to rule this place just because now you don't have exams. Don't make the rules, don't set the timeline or limits, this is not your job here.
In that way you will see CAs will be able to do their job properly instead to have to deal with unplanned things that "steal" time from our normal duties.
If their normal duties are not enough to cover all your maps, probably it's because you should try to draw less maps in the same time...no one is here to steal to you a map project. ;)
The foundry doesn't work on your time.

Sorry for the harsh words, but i think that my Team has enough of this way to act from you.
Nobodies

ps. probably It was better to use a pm, but in this way everyone can read...so we're all on the same page.

Give every man your ear, but few thy voice. Take each man's censure, but reserve thy judgment.

This creates expectation...

One would hope that if you have concerns tnb80, you'be able to speak up for yourself, not get your elf to do your work for you.

Ah...what about GG how do i get gameplay and graphics in there too.
XM was to keep consistency of two letters with the other two letters on the other side.

I think that just having GR for graphics would suffice, as I don't know of any mapmaker that puts game-play on the map unless someone else worked out the game-play.
