Hey,
It's a good draft...
My initial comments will be graphical:
The map seems to be unecessarily wide, and there is too much space devoted to the legend.

Yes, I know. I'm moving everything to the center and cropping it.
I'm not sold on the texture you've got on the unplayable area.
That was the hardest thing, and neither am I.
People are likely to look at it and see a 'floating' map, as it seems to jump out from the background a bit.
:-k
I love the polar bear though ;-)
:) I like it as well
Gameplay-wise, I haven't had too much of a close look - post it into the drafting room and see what people think...

You need to reduce the opacity of the continent names.

And there is something wrong with the text... I don't know, what but it seems out of of place. Might be just me, but can you try out a different font?

Those are my only comments at the moment.

I'll lower the opacity. And hmm, I liked the font. But:

Any of em? I couldn't find a different style besides the one that oak+gimil are using for Mars and calligraphy, which I don't think fits at all.

how did you get the connections they seem random to me maybe you could actually find how Greenland usually get to other side somehow just a thought.

* Texture/skin (whatever you wanna call it) of the unsettled area in the middle:
Add mountains or a glacier or something. Frost effect?
* Graphics of connections?
You've got to do something I didn't even realize they were connections until you said something. Make them wavy or add arrows?
* Area around map (i.e. map is "floating" … I tried Iceland — didn't work. Didn't try adding Canada with low opacity … yet.
I think it looks fine.
* Territories … right now it is 33 but I had it at 29 previously and got it up to as much as 35. Could make it 36 if needed.
OK by me, I think.

Other comments:

You've got the dead space, move the continent Illoqqortoormiut closer to the dead space and scoot the terr names over to the right. Then you can fit the seaside terroitories inside the provinces.

National Park needs to be scooted so the N isnt over a border. Maybe shift the borders as well? Also, could you name it whatever the Greenland language name for National Park is?

That's all I have for now. Best of luck, its a good lookin map so far.

Alright:
The Neon Peon:
You need to reduce the opacity of the continent names.
Done.
And there is something wrong with the text... I don't know, what but it seems out of of place. Might be just me, but can you try out a different font?
Hmm … any of the ones I posted above?

miniwally:
how did you get the connections they seem random to me maybe you could actually find how Greenland usually get to other side somehow just a thought.
I did the connections based upon what I thought would be good for gameplay. From my research, the north of Greenland is mainly uninhabitable, and the northeast consists of a couple towns and research stations. Some of the names used there are of mountains, because the cities/towns of Greenland are more than 75% in the Narsaq-Upernavik area.

Industrial Helix:
Add mountains or a glacier or something. Frost effect?
I'll experiment with stuff.
You've got to do something I didn't even realize they were connections until you said something. Make them wavy or add arrows?
Alright … umm I'll take a look at arrows, maybe a solid line going into each territory would help?
I think it looks fine.
Good
OK by me, I think.
Alright. I think this is an issue mainly for later in development.
You've got the dead space, move the continent Illoqqortoormiut closer to the dead space and scoot the terr names over to the right. Then you can fit the seaside terroitories inside the provinces.
I'm a bit confused here … by the dead space I'm referring to the amount of blank water around the map. But I'll look into moving the names around.
National Park needs to be scooted so the N isnt over a border. Maybe shift the borders as well?
Done.
Also, could you name it whatever the Greenland language name for National Park is?
Can't find a translator … be much abliged if someone could ;)

Like I said before, I'll experiment with things.

Keep 'em coming!

I'll come back later for a full look but get rid of the tongue. Get rid of it. please.


Perhaps you could turn this into a Polar Bear map? research their locations, movements, and all that good stuff. at least do the very preliminary "can I find a map that shows where polar bears live in this area and can it be made into a map?" if no to either thing in the "" then you know it's not possible right away.

It's the Greenlandic coat of arms — I wonder if it would be too big a deal to get rid of it.

Cool thought, I found these quickly:

I'd like to see the ice cap made into a region in and of itself. The individual territories could be the major glaciers in the area.
