I think it was good decision to make all map in English.

the bridges look nice, but I think the map is from modern era and they look as stone/wood bridges. maybe something modern or any of Moscow bridges should be better?
just idea.

Oneyed...i looked at all the bridges in Moscow and i think what i have represents a stylized version of bridges. Most of the bridges have some sort of arch under or over the bridge and it is difficult to make one particular bridge "fit all"...so i am happy with what i have. Thank-you for the idea though. :)

I've pm'ed him about it and posted in the CA forums that I was getting ready to stamp it. You can PM him yourself and let him know you're not ready to move on to the next stage until you hear from him though. There's not really much more I can do.

cairnswk, these areas are now good in my opinion but you do need to polish them all up.

Title, good to see the whole thing now. But needs the polish. :)
Picture (top right) far better. Bottom rights sky is too light, darken that with some blue. ;)
Bridges, some of the best and really work with this style. =D>

The rest of the map, and that is everything, will need to be gone over with a fine tooth comb, changed altered and just generally brought up to standard. Sorry to be blunt about that. O:)

sorry for the delay. i confirm nolefan's conclusion that the gameplay is solid, so u can feel free to progress the graphics without fear that the borders need to change for gameplay reasons. the only additional suggestions i have are for the green bonus to be reduced from +4 to +3 and for the inner ring neutrals to be amended from n3 to n2, both to encourage more play in the middle; these do not require graphic changes.

Russian Jewels?? My first thought on the playable area was stained glass, but doesn't look like stained glass.

The jewels around each picture, get rid of the glow or whatever it is around them.

There is some brown protruding out from underneath the frame area, top, top left and left side.

Now that you've said that, i have tried to apply a leaded glass effect on the outer regions to see what you'all think.

The jewels around each picture, get rid of the glow or whatever it is around them.

Removed, and have redone the diamonds around the pictures...with new contrast to make them a little more whitish diamonds

There is some brown protruding out from underneath the frame area, top, top left and left side.

I beleive those have been fixed.

I'm still trying to work on the gold effects..it's not working well at present and may take some time.

For now...version 13...
