thanks Industrial Helix
1: we read somewhere that its better to start with a bigger map. but you are a cartographer and it makes sense so we checked and the small map (630 x 600) looks fine; its easy to read
2: sorry you think the rainbows are lame, but they are on the Hawaii license plates, drivers licences, the university mascot is the Hawaii Rainbows and if you ever go to the Islands look mauka and you will see them. im not trying to get too defensive, we were just looking for something that reflected the islands and was different from all the straight or dotted lines you see on all maps
3: we'd love to do a Hawai'i historical map, but this map began as a painting on the back of an old risk board that we have been playing for years. we wanted to translate our painted board from analog to digital (Conquer Club) for all to enjoy. we wanted to do this one as our first, and then maybe a Kamehameha, ahupua'a or kahuna style map next incorporating historical context.
the 2 autodeploys are because when we played our hard copy we thought it was a bit too much of a reward so we thought a 1 autodeploy would make them worth a bit less.
thanks for the feedback guys!!
