CURRENT UPDATE INFO-2012-11-08:
- Overhauled the look and went with my original plan, which was to use the same type of background, as Koontz suggested as well. I think with some adjustment to the color pallet this will work nicely, and keeps the consistency of the Tribal War theme throughout.
- Updated the Dead Sea area to be a different color then the rest of the rivers in that section.
- Added swords to the Dead Sea terts to indicate additional lines of attack from one to the other.
- Fixed the mountains to be less sparse, but they are not finished yet, and I will be adding a couple more to what is there to fill in any other areas.

Still need thoughts on:
- Bonus values

Will leave that to the GP mods to go over with you.

Going to sticky this now but give some of that sea love to the rivers and will get this sent on its way very soon.

Hey Koontz, which rivers are you speaking of, and which sea do you like? Thanks for the sticky! Just want to give your thoughts a try.

dead sea, it is a nice colour so something like that with an outline would look good and go with the dead sea much better. It might be an idea also to have the same colour blending in from under the land into the main sea.

I am still not sure about the river Jordan and sea of Galilee. Try to give the dead sea some death.

CURRENT UPDATE INFO-2012-11-08:
- Adjusted the color on the ocean, the Jordan River and Sea of Galilee, but still need to play around with those last two to get the colors looking right.
- Updated the Dead Sea area again to be a different color vs the rest of the rivers, and added an inner border. Let me know if you like the color.
- Added some mountains around Jericho to cut it off from the war zone.

Please look at:
- Masada and Jerusalem in Judah. Let me know if you think that text is easier to read vs the last version. Since the font includes capital letters and lower case it's a pretty big pain in the ass to make that text happen. Basically I need to make two text layers, one with the first letter capitalized in a larger font, then the second with the rest of the text in capitals but in a smaller font. I then need to adjust the two to be in line, then merge and create my new outer glow. That will need to be done 83 times, plus other text, so it will take a while to complete. Let know some thoughts while I keep working on them.

You are going to hate me but I like the new text. :twisted: But before you do all the others, text it on the small map mock up you did to see if it still looks good. ;) But do not merge the files. :D

If you turn all layers of apart from the text ones, copy visible and paste that onto a new layer. Then all of your text is done for glows. You can then also do all of the first letters at the bottom and copy and paste them to all names that need it. This will save you loads of time.
Do this for territ names, and legend texts separately so you can play around with them independently.

Dead sea, reverse the glow so it becomes lighter at the edges. Turn the layer onto dodge I think but if you go through them you will see some turn black into white.

Yeah, I know the text looks better. I'll test it on the small, but I might be able to keep the second part of the names the same size and just make the first letter a little smaller. We'll see.

Thanks Koontz.

Yeah, much better now.
Though, you could just make all territory names in CAPITALS, without the first letter being BIG :) It would still look cool!

Yeah I actually tried that first but it didn't look as good. Would have been much easier that's for sure. :lol:

I think the lower dead sea should be low neutrals (3-5 range) and the upper should be more (7-15 range).

The war zones seem far more barren than the other map. Is this intentional?

Here is the small version with the updated text. I only changed a handful, and included the 88 to show how it would all fit. I tried to pick a couple that were longer names to make sure they would work. Everything else should fit as well, with a little work on some of the territory borders, etc. What are the thoughts? I think it will also look better with the letters spaced out by 1, and the font size reduced by 1 as well.

Edit: Trying to space it by 1 and reducing the font doesn't really work, it's actually too big.

Definitely like the new text better. It's much easier to read than the old.

Agreed. But honestly, this still isn't particularly easy to read.
