Ok guys I have an updated version ready which I will probably post later on today. I added the mini map and bonus legend.

I am reading your comments and evaluating them but I will see what other people have to say before making any other changes.

1. About the mountains it shouldn't be a problem to make them bigger. Waiting for more feedback from other users.

2. The font can be easily changed. Personally I don't mind it but I'll wait for feedback from other people to see what to do.

3. The bonuses. I have been thinking a lot about them. I think I'll keep them. I believe that they add a new element to the map. Many of the territories are small and easy to hold. However a player can make a comeback perhaps if he manages to hold the yellow territories even though he doesn't have a regional bonus and this adds another strategic element to the game. Also the fact that you need at least 6 of them to get a 1 unit bonus prevents the yellow territories bonus from being a random thing but something that a player must work for. If anything my question is this...does the bonus starting from 6 territories seem too harsh and perhaps needs to be lowered to 4 or 5 or is it fine as it is? Again waiting for more comments.

I like the mountains. They do not need to resemble real mountains - these kind of feel more like game board pieces, but its still cool. My vote is to keep them as is (or close to it).

i also dont mind them, but at this stage you need not worry about them too much,

i think that would make it fairer, because no1 can say "i got a bad start" coz theyre bound to be near/holding a yellow terit and maybe a chance at a cont, basically i think that might balence it out (or it might not :P)

Pros:

Good Bonus'
Its an actual place (i think)
The territory lines are O.K

Cons

The background sucks (sorry)
There doesnt seem to be a need for that stamp-like-thing in the corner, it just takes up room
There seems to be extra unused room that u could get rid of
The lakes/mountains arent that graphically appealing

Yes, but the actual river is located in that location.

I will add bridges so that there won't be any confusion. Remember this is still not finished, but thanks for pointing that out.

Besides as a side note every CC player should get BOB. It's great and it solves these kind of problems with maps.

On a separate note the free space will be used and yes San Marino is an actual place. It's in the Italian peninsula.

Hehe thanks mate. I am glad I was of assistance on that one. Portugal is a lovely map I must say.

I have been busy these past months. Just finished my thesis and have my final university exams coming up in early June. I will have a bit more free time from mid June onwards to dedicate to CC. ;)

Would a normal rectangular form be better or did you have something else in mind?

i just dont think it looks right when you have a right angle at the top right, and then a weird angle at the bottom left, i dunno what you could do, maybe try changing it to the other side so it might fit?

Well i like germany exept the graphics, but i dont like these graphics much either much but meh


Hehe seems like you're a difficult person to please Sam! :p

Germany is being revamped maybe you'll like it more now.


i am lol. i like it a bit more now, got used to it, but the yellow teritory thing seems pontless, u need 6 for +1, which isnt worth the hassle, and you would need another cont to hold it anyway.
plus the yellow doesnt stand out and isnt immediatly clear.

i think that by the time you have that "cont", the others will have proper conts and will have wiped you out, and plus, the yellow terit "cont" bonus is exposed on every terit, so it really is not worth holding 6 terits to get a bonus of 1 when your exposed like that!!
