  • Option D is the one I've gone with for the title, although I've made a few tweaks as the poll was so inconclusive
  • I've added a very slight gradient to the ocean, making it slightly brighter down in the Mediterranean, and slightly colder/darker in the North

I haven't put in any coordinates yet, and the large image size is empty; other than that, I'm hoping I've got all the borders and continents right :?:

I guess you're referring to San Marino/Vatican City? They are two tiny countries wholly surrounded by Italy - as depicted on the map - so there's not too much I can do about that ;-)

max is gr8 wrote:It has 6 territs with 3 borders and gets 3, yet central europe has the same bonus for 4 territs

As I just mentioned, San Marino and Vatican City are both enclaves of Italy, which makes Italy a lot easier to hold than Germany, for instance. It will also be fairly easy to expand from the Italian islands to get the Med Island bonus.
Central Europe is pretty exposed - count the number of territories that can attack Germany!

The bonuses are more or less what the bonus spreadsheet/calculator suggested... are you raising this as a problem, or just pointing out that the two areas are very different yet have the same bonus? If it's the former, it would be helpful to know if you have an alternative solution ;-)

the army shadows are suitably subtle. even on the small version, they do not take over the map. are blue armies clearly distinguishable from scandinavian blue?

can u use internationally-recognised abbreviations for country names instead of made-up ones? below are links to both 2-letter and 3-letter iso codes. the 2-letter codes are in wider everyday use because of the internet, although the united nations uses the 3-letter codes.

http://www.iso.org/iso/country_codes/is ... ements.htm
http://www.un.org/Depts/Cartographic/en ... eoname.pdf

the one that most needs to change is liechtenstein, since lt is the official 2-letter iso code for lithuania, which is also on the map (lt is, for example, used as the lithuanian internet top-level domain code, while li is liechtenstein's equivalent).

http://www.liechtenstein.li/en/fl-staat-gemeinden-vaduz

five other abbreviations on our map are used by different territories as their official iso codes and these are given below.

bh: bahrain
mo: macao
sl: sierra leone
vc: saint vincent & the grenadines
mac: macao

connect the peloponnese peninsula to mainland greece by drawing in the isthmus of corinth on the eastern side, to the right of the army count. at the moment, the peloponnese looks too much like a med island.

if we renamed the balkan states continent as north balkans, then do u think everyone would be satisfied?

transcontinental has 6 territories, of which 3 are border territories. i think +5 (+4 and +1 motherland) is too high: classic africa also has 6 territories, of which 3 are border territories, and is only +3, without the benefit of a sub-bonus as a stepping-stone.

No solution required I don't reckon - bonuses look good to me.

How to make a map handbook wrote:To earn your graphics stamp you must comply to the following conditions:
    1) Image must present itself as clear and legible.
    2) The aesthetics must be to a presentable foundry standard and must also satisfy the community at large.
    3) Cartographers must ,where possible, reduce any disadvantage that can be caused to a colorblind individual.

Just a Thought, maybe you could make the sea connections from England to France/Spain not start from the same place. It makes the France one less obvious in my eyes. Maybe a Dover-Calais one for the French one and leave the Spain one as is.

Large isn't part of my criteria for graphics stamp, just small. If you work on a large then I require to see a quick glance at a resized large to determine if the resize will have any major issues.
What do you know about map making, bitch?

              Final Forge

---The Europa Map has reached the ‘Final Forge’ Stage. I've revived this thread from the pits of the Foundry Furnace (okay, maybe not) and have examined the contents. Nearly every major concern has been addressed. If there are any other current concerns, please make your voice heard. If after a reasonable amount of time there has not been any objection or protest, the map will be deemed finished with the 'Foundry Brand' of approval and will be submitted for live play. As long as there is still discussion or posts that have yet to be commented on, the map will remain in Final Forge until said discussion has reached the conclusion that the map has reached its final and polished version.

Post questions and concerns if any.

Postby MrBenn on Sat Aug 30, 2008 4:57 am

Update!
Image
  • All the abbreviations have been replaced with official 3-letter codes
  • Some of the territory names have been moved to make them slightly clearer
  • The Greek peninsular has been connected via a land bridge.
  • Different coloured army numbers have been put on the map to show how it looks... The blue numbers are nice and clear; the most difficult to see are the yellow-on-yellow, but I wouldn't say it's problematic...

How should the abbreviated countries by shown in the XML/Game Log?

    a) ALB - Albania
    b) ALB: Albania
    c) Albania (ALB)
    d) Albania - ALB
    e) Albania ALB
    f) something else...

Personally I'm inclined to go with option C...
