Version 17 large and Small
This is just a bump to confirm that Mossman has been updated to Mosman :)

A few things:

1. Some of the Territory names such as Mosman, Manly, Woy Woy go over the outline. Remove the outline under the names for an easier read.
2. The outer glow around the text in the legend and mini-map. I don't think it is really needed considering that the background is a light enough color. You can either remove the outer glow or tone it down a couple of notches.
3. The out glow around the text in the landmark areas, I think you can remove the glow all together.
4. The cross walks on the small look good, but on the large they are all messed up. Probably from enlarging them.
5. There is what looks like a smudge here down by Jamison Valley:

Removing it altogether around the outer names is not an option, otherwise it would be too(notice the spelling - not you, but others) dark to read. But i have reduced the opacity of the PS effect from 75% to 55%.
Done.

Looking better. Woy Woy, I think ti would be better if you move the circle down and move the name up above it, as some people would think it reads Wo"V" Woy.

I actually don't think it will be that much of a problem since it is the only name with Wo starting the name.
However, i will move it for you. Is that all now? :)

I've re-worked the mountains in Fireworks, and then imported the map to Coreldraw and reworked the text.
I think this looks much better now.

Getting there cairns!!

A couple of things:
1 - The text size on the small, some of the names are a little hard to read. I believe for the most part that you have room to have a larger size, maybe an increase of one font size?
2 - Some of the territory names need to have the kerning adjusted, i.e. Penrith, it looks like Pennth on the large and on the small it is even worse. The names that have a "ri" are really bad. They all look like an "n"
3 - On the mini-map, can you place the bonus value beside the word City, and have the line going more to the center of that area?

Please update the color blind test in the OP, with both of the major tests.

i prefer it have it where it is as it fits better with the consistency of the others in the mini-map i.e. all on their territories where possible; the only reason northern beaches is off its territory is because it would be too close to the North Shore bonus number and there is very little room on northern beaches for it. :)

I've mucked around with that bonus area a bit more...moving the northern beaches bonus number onto it's region, and making it clearer.
I've also changed the line indicators to white.

...Sorry, this is a bit late:

  • It isn't clear in the legend whether the kayaks are part of a bonus.
  • K7 near penrith is missing a name.
  • The mountains are great but it looks a bit funny just underneath Leura.
  • I like the way you've done the textures.
  • Not sure if I said this before, but I really like the way the images have been done on this one.
