I actually do like this font better. As a bonus, the ks and Hs don't look like Xs (not that any of the names start with an H):

On the small version, "Mitch's" looks really fuzzy. I'd still recommend changing the colour of the sponsor names... That light blue doesn't look too good on a pastel background.

ps. good choice on the font.

Actually font does look better now - and agree with ND about Mitchs.

Some of the kerning (gaps between letters) looks a little off; most notably on "Di jkstr a".

Other than that, I do prefer this typeface.

I went in and manually kerned the offending letters and made the sponsor names less blurry. I also wrote up the XML and tweaked some house positions to make the numbers fit better. Tell me what you think:

That looks heaps better ;-)

There are a couple of other names that could be adjusted a bit (Warr en), but that's only because I'm deliberately looking for them now :P

I really can't see too much to nit-pick at...

The kerning looks fine now. No more additional adjustment is needed IMO.

only a small thing: what is the small gray line after natty's name in the big version?

The map looks very nice, good work Evil DIMwit ;)

Congratulations, this is well deserved.

Now that this is in the FF, I have a few small nit-picking things, specifically with the starting neutral count. Noel and Singer are almost identical territs in terms of gameplay, so they should probably have the same neutral count. You probably wanted Singer to be 3 to increase the distance between the station and the pirate, so I suggest making Noel 3. Similarly, shouldn't Love, Klein, Fife and Jiang be the same? I suggest making them all 2's so make the distance from the pirates to the sponsors the same as from the stations to the sponsors. I remember there was some discussion about this a while ago, but I don't think it was ever really settled.

How's this? The pirates are now each the same distance as the stations from two sponsors, and McKay's neutral has been lowered to give easier access to the southeast quadrant, since it's less busy.

I'd drop Webster to 2 - as a 3 it's doing nothing - and is probably just going to be ignored in a lot of games.
