Mmhm, could be a good point.

I see contrast is mentioned...that's OK, but are you guys also talking about CB issues?

Is there any way to make the boxes stand out better. Not the ones in the corners, but the areas they represent on the map itself. Took me a while to find them. Nice map though.

It may make it seem cluttered but why not just make room for it next to those terts or just get rid of them?

I don't know, the boxes don't bother me, and it didn't take me long to find them on the map. But, the majority are bothered by them, so probably better to change it.

I like the colors, and the mountains especially. Very nice.

I have to disagree with nolefan, I quite like the bridges. But that's pretty subjective I think, so whatever on that point.

All in all, very nice so far. That border is cool, fits very well with the Ethiopia theme.

I think you have been here too long cairns. Time for you to move on and get some game play feedback in the main foundry. As always good luck.

I think it stems from Nola_Lifers comment above. Our names are similar. Not a big deal, lol.
