You'll need to make the graphic significantly different from my contest entry, please; especially as I have a further work-in-progress in development

Hi natty,

This has a much more 'British' feel to it now. A few graphical points while you wait on getting this moved by those that run the drafting room.

The British flag contrasts with the Big Ben watermark. I would suggest making the flag similar in tone and transparency to big ben for graphical consistency. You know what I mean?

Also the bonus legends could probably be moved to the bottom right corner to utalise the dead space in that area, also the legends could probably be colour coded with the map for ease of reference (and so they look prettier).

Finally I ain't digging the Font choice for the title. With the semi-British theme you have going on I think a hand writing font would fit the theme much better, perhaps 'Monotype Corsiva'. Let me know what you think.

Nice work,
gimil

natty_dread, nice to see you bring this one back to life. I really like the new colour scheme, getting away from the green was a great idea but South east and North Central look very similar.
North Central, can you rename it just North. Central is not used.
Why Big Ben for the background, I have no problem with it but a lot of people will just ask, so I might as well be first.
Gimil said it, but the title font looks really bad (like something a dog with a bad tummy would do).

Very nice work natty, as usual.

I agree with Koontz, the SE and N do look similar, especially Haringey and Camden. They look very much like the SE, and event different than Barnet and Enfield.

Big Ben, is London's most prominent and well known landmark.

That is debatable.

But as I said, it is natty's choice but like all maps with these landmarks on, people will say why that one.

Simple, when I think of London, I think of many many things, Big Ben is only one of them, but I am not the right person to ask as I am to close to my home city. As an exercise, I will ask my kids at school tomorrow and see what they come up with.

Maybe it's just me, but I prefer when bonuses are listed in a mini-map with numbers instead of a text list.

Just like this one:

With so many maps nowadays it's more and more difficult to remember how one or another region is called.

If you want a proper London font - get the London Underground font

If anyone suggests anything different, get them to pm me and i'll gladly tell them to f*ck off all day long.
