Changes:
-Made the arms on the minimap a bit more prominent - and on the cont. Baden-Wurttemberg as well.
-Increased the color difference between Baden-Wurttemberg and Bayern.
-Made some text on the minimap a bit easier to read.
-Pushed the mountain range next to Trier closer to the map's edge.
-Played around with the sea color, it ended up being about the same when I finished though. I'll keep working with it.

To-do:
-Small map problems?
-Comments?

I don't see any problems. let's get this thing done before the year is up!

On the small I have a problem reading some terr names. To be honest I think the small is needlessly small and cramped couldn't you bump up the size a good bit?

This is the only issue I have to stamping this REVAMP.
What do you know about map making, bitch?

Any suggestions on size? It could just be the army numbers - obviously you won't have all double digits in many games. Anyway, the current size is like 514 px wide by 450 px. I could put up a few different examples if you want.

The guidelines state that your large needs to at least be 9% larger than your small. so you can make it up to 623x546 without having to increase the size of your large.

Here are a few different sizes:

620x543 (max size allowed):
http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w108 ... 20x543.jpg
http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w108 ... 0x543s.jpg

580x508:

http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w108 ... 80x508.jpg
http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w108 ... 0x508s.jpg

550x482:

http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w108 ... 50x482.jpg
http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w108 ... 0x482s.jpg

And, the current small (514x450):

http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w108 ... mp008S.jpg
http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w108 ... p008SN.jpg

550x482 seems ok too me, though it's hard to tell if the terit names are unclear when you already know them all. And I don't like the max size very much, I prefer maps when they have a more significant difference in the sizes (I use the small mostly).
Thoughts gim? or anyone else?

620x543 gets my vote, but I could also happily live with 580x508. Once we get this issue sorted I see no problem in stamping this one.

On a personal note, I think the Preussen region dark grey is just s touch too dark for the black text on it...i really have to squint to read the territory text names.

Thanks cairns :D
I'll lighten up Preussen a bit... and maybe Norddeutschland as well if the two conts then become too similar in color.
