I can't fully see it, cause it's taking forever to load, but the water ripples are still messed up and driving me crazy. The perspective is waaayy off.

For some reason it drives me nuts. I don't know if it bothers anyone else.

I love how your doing a small aussie town. The tinnie routes to bungalow are slightly confusing, at first look i thought that east trinity connected to edmonton east.

The trees around Mt Whitfield also look a bit confusing, why are they only around the edge? Also why is it called Cairns metro, why not just cairns? or is it to match sydney metro?

Yes to match sydney metro!
trees around mt whitefield are left off in the middle so that the name can be seen.
i'll see what i can do about the rest. :)

I didn't notice this until Juan pointed it out, and now I can't stop looking at it. And no, it doesn't matter... at least not for my stamp.

That and the extra-heavy border that, oddly, goes completely around Cairnswk.

I'm sure this was discussed earlier, but what's the logic behind making Cairnsk a starting neutral? Perhaps Redlynch Valley would be a better choice?

And my apologies for screwing up my evaluation of the bonuses earlier - I'd said that Redlynch and East Trinity were the same size, but they aren't. I guess I was reading all of the lines on it incorrectly - now that the region is cleaner it is obviously only 3 territories. But I still like East Trinity better as a +3, since it is so linear.

One little colorblind thing... two regions that are close for me are East Trinity and Gordonvale. The small map erases any other colorblind issues on this map, but since East Trinity is broken up somebody could think that part of Eat Trinity actually goes with Gordonvale. You could change a color up, or you could somehow better indicate which territories go with the 3 on the small map.

Not that anybody will confuse this for anybody else's work, but no butterfly sig?

The perspective will most likely be way off since the map is flat with the mini-map signage, but the title is 3D concept.
I think the water-rings are fine...they are perfect recplicas of each other.

Border fixed, and neutral removed to Redlynch Valley.

And my apologies for screwing up my evaluation of the bonuses earlier - I'd said that Redlynch and East Trinity were the same size, but they aren't. I guess I was reading all of the lines on it incorrectly - now that the region is cleaner it is obviously only 3 territories. But I still like East Trinity better as a +3, since it is so linear.

Thanks for apology but not needed. ;) You convinced me with your argument to change to +3.

The small map erases any other colorblind issues on this map, but since East Trinity is broken up somebody could think that part of Eat Trinity actually goes with Gordonvale.

LIne indicators placed on mini-map, does that assist?

Sig added :)

I don't see anything else and nothing seems to be coming up, so I was stalling for time and waiting for the butterfly. Now that you've added it...

Could you fix up the grass in the bottom left? I still think it looks off. I think the problem is the sharp contrast between the light and dark grass portions.
