Note: my large map doesn't need [bigimg] because it's 700 x 700

- River: I made the river very thin where it isn't a border, and removed that confusing thing saying "Not a border: --". I think this may be the solution; I think it's clearer, anyway.
Legend: I knew the legend had some readability problems, so I played around with it, and you can see the results. What do you think? Is it ugly? Does it go well with the rest of the map? Did I go overboard?
New Layer: Like I mentioned in my last couple of posts, I added a black layer with a canvas texture at 9% opacity on the top. Basically meaning that the entire map has been darkened, and also has a slight touch of texture. What do you guys think of the effect?
I also added a note in the bottom saying that Sri Lanka borders Tamil Nadul. I really don't want to start drawing attack lines, but if enough people think it necessary I guess I'll have to do it.
Version 13 (Feeling lucky?):

It's been a while, but I've finally managed to post something different enough for an update. The major changes are the fact that I now have a small (and quite cramped) map, and that Eastern India has finally changed to +1. I've also had the idea that maybe the problem with the river can be solved if I just make the "not a border" parts extremely thin...
Points of Discussion:
-Colors in Legend
-Probably other stuff

-Changed the river distinction (added a stroke effect)
-Changed the font. Does this look better?
-Fiddled with the army circles
-created two "types", if you will, of river. Hopefully this will help clarify what is a border and what isn't.
-changed army circles
-moved the legend to the water
-enlarged the numbers on the mini-map
-changed borders between non-playable area and the map itself
-similarly changed coastal borders
-Changed East India to +2
-better position some of the names of territories
-Southern India in the legend is too light -- so I'll darken it
-Clean up some of the coastal borders
-Improved the river
-Changed the path of the river in an attempt to make West Bengal more clearly one territory
-Added a title
-Played with the legend colors... again
-Lessened the shadows in some places
I know it's been a while, but here it is.
-Made the image "pop" a little more, with a little help from the Inner Shadow layer setting
-Set the mini-map to Dissolve, in an attempt to make it look like it is dissolving into the background
-Changed Delhi to Uttaranchal
Comments? Am I moving now?
-added a pop-up effect and shadows to the army circles
-increased legend size
-added a small glow to text and water
-blurred the mini-map
I think that's everything.
-Fixed pixelation in the borders between the mountains/non-playing area and the map itself.
-Army circles get a texture, and reduced opacity
-Other minor tidy-upping
No comments of my own. You guys make them.
-Changed font color, to contrast with the borders
-Increased font size by 1 point
-Changed Southern India's color to a shade of blue because the font became illegible there
-Changed out-of-play area again. This time I added another layer with the same texture as the water, and also a crayon-texture, and then made all three textures opaque. I rather like this blend.
-Added a mini-map
-Added Haryana into Himalayas for better gameplay.
-Bonuses changed because of this
-What do you think of the colors? Also, why are they duller than they look on my desktop (even in png format)?
-Are the borders improved? Do you like the line for the coast?
-Is a connecting line between Sri Lanka and Tamil Nadul necessary?
-Thoughts on bonuses (specifically East India and Central India)?
-What should I name the purple continent (what is now Himalaya and what was Nepal in previous versions)?
-Is it clear that West Bengal is a single territory?
