Benn - this map seems to be way to big for the regions you are representing. I'm all for big maps, but only if they need to be. We all hate scrolling if you don't have to. You could probably fit this map

Here's what I did - reduced the size.

I hadn't thought about the image size too much - I've just made sure it's within the size limits...

What actual image sizes did you use in your examples? I've just been playing around and think that 650X700 works for the large image, and something like 510x550 would be OK for the small...

Sorry Benn - I didn't save my file, and i cropped the image so i don't know what the entire map size was. I just know i was able to reduce it and still keep it good looking.

No problems ;-)
The smaller ones I've got here look fine, although I'll keep working on the bigger image ;-)

I agree with RJ, the image is too big, especially when it doesn't need to be.
Even though it is the large map, I think shrinking it a bit would be better. you don't need that much space for such a simple map.

Other than that, I don't see any other possible problems right now. It's looking good.

Yeah, what's the hold up? MrBenn pretty much had this done by the time he shared it with us. We should be playing this one by now....

Here you go, good luck with the map.

Now one of the CAs needs to move this thread to the main foundry.


I'm still a fan of shrinking the large version a bit, but its not a big deal. Good luck.

UPDATE!
Image
Image
Version 6
Large and Small Images
    I've done a little tweaking, and put together a slightly smaller large image, and a smaller small image...
    The sea now has a slight edge to it - there was a suggestion to have a blue tinge, but it didn't look right. I've opted for a slightly murky sea, which seems to fit the style of the map!
    I've added the Shire suffix to some of the English territory names where they'll fit, which will hopefully make it slightly more obvious what the poem means when it talks about shires :?:
    There are now working small/large images - Gameplay discussion is desperately needed ;-)

Someone forgot their bigimg tags [-X

Any chance of flipping the colors of the Midlands and the North? Or just changing the Midlands? The color of that is too similar to the South-West for my color-blind eyes to tell apart. The fact that the whole continent has an inner glow with the color makes me able to distinguish them, but I think it would be better if you shuffled the colors.

What about the bonuses? Some should be WAAAY higher, no? Because they have two territs within themselves, and each territory that they touch has two...

Maybe thats just me?
