Anything that would allow the viewer to quickly and easily, visually establish the bonus values, and their correlation to each other, would make this map much better to understand, regardless of any color blind issues.ender516 wrote:I'm going to side with natty on the mini-map issue, but I wonder if pork doesn't have a point (that perhaps he wasn't trying to make ): maybe the bonus values could be placed directly on the map itself, in a manner similar to the Third Crusade. Voila, no more glancing back and forth.

Tetovo | Skopje
Ohrid | Kumonova
Veles | Stip
Bitola | Berova
_____ | Strumica

Hmm.. I came up with this by looking at the map and realized it's exactly the same as Andy suggested. This fits the maps left/right feel, imo.
I am wondering just what is meant by, the "feel of the map". and someone please explain why a mini-map is NOT inline with the feel of this map ? I honestly do NOT see any conflict at all.Orange-Idaho-Dog wrote:The mini-map idea is a good one to take care of the issue of the legend, but I don't see how it would fit with the 'feel' of this map. Couldn't hurt to try, however.
I think putting the numbers directly on the map could work out, if an order of the legend can't be decided.
Very good idea. Mini-maps have been used in cartography for as long as maps have been made. So, it does not in any way, depart from the feel of a "real" map.natty_dread wrote:One solution would be to put the minimap on an inset, so it would look like it is part of the map...
