Yes, i can work on that.

Some of the bombardment is still unclear because the cannon points between two ships.
Your legend still says attacks and bombards.
Why do you have two attack/bombard lines between two ships? only one is necessary.
2. cannon pointing needs to be cleaned up
3. well, there will be a differentation
4. as a method of indicating two-way attacks. When men boarded from a ship, they usually boarded via ropes that swung from their own ship or gang planks, so i thought it would be a great idea to have two lines, and if there was only one yellow line to a red ship, then it would be a one-way attack indicator.
i thought it would be better than having one-way arrows.

And i'm glad someone esle has found the thread, thanks Telvania
Keeping with the small and insignificant if you have space you could put Nelson's famous signal behind the legend.
Jolly splendid idea, thanks for that.Just another trifling matter, at the top you have the faces of Nelson and Napoleon (I think it is them it is hard to tell at that size), surely you could have the faces of Napoleon and George III or Nelson and his French/Spainish counterpart.
Those are the faces of Nelson and French commander Pierre-Charles Villeneuve...i have yet to put the spanish commander in.Also without knowing what you are doing for bonuses, here is what i think would make a good set:
You would have to work out the actual numerical value for each of the bonuses, as im terrible at gameplay mechanics
- British Weather Column
- British Lee Column
- HMS Africa
- French Ships
- Spanish Ships
HMS Africa (frigates) was part of the Weather column, but i'll consider this...good work.
