If it is a gold ring on a window it is more logical if it was originally fult closed. If the edges of the gaps are not so round but broken pieces it might look more natural. Some cracks or dirt or pieces of lead might do the trick.

Ah...now i understand what you mean...although for the image i'm not quite sure that's what i was aiming for :)
but we'll see.

Version 14.

I'm mucking around with different textures at present and presentation.
I think this version might be the go moving forward.

Because i chose to update the map inline with the google map, the river has moved.
This caused a change in the layout of the olive regions below Yaramanka and also to the Ochakovo border.
I'm wondering if nolefan5311 will re-examine those regions to ensure to bonuses are correct, please. :)

I'll continue to update this version until all the mosaic look is complete around the map unless there is a huge negative backlash about it.

Oneyed

the mosaic is done on the inner regions...the outer regions still to be completed....it's taking quite a while. ;)
not sure about the street "vein" colour yet.
I've also placed in the latest update to V14 (pls refresh) the star bonus.

Get rid of the street veins, it is making the map look really "un"cairns like. a.k.a. messy, cluttered, busy, etc. ;)

The streets do make it very difficult to work out where the borders are.

I'm looking forward to seeing what it's like with a complete mosaic. Keep in mind also that it may be difficult to work out where the Inner suburbs bonus starts and ends, as the mosaic as it is really highlights those bonuses.

maybe streets could be a little more lighter?

the bonuses look clear, but I have question for 100% patency: +13 Inner suburbs (so +8 for suburbs and +5 for Inner ring), so not +13 for Inner suburbs and +5 for Inner ring which gives +18?

Yes, it will take some time now to pull those layers out but perhaps the streets were the wrong direction....i wasn't 100% totally happy with them ;)
