More than a single option, these are the standard ways:

  • Symbols
  • Colored Names
  • Colored Borders + Minimap
  • Different shades of green

But you can find others with a bit of creativity. ;)

Give every man your ear, but few thy voice. Take each man's censure, but reserve thy judgment.

I am ready to be moved back please. Game play will not change unless something comes up and we all agree on the change, such as in beta.

Back you go into the fray. Good luck Brucewar.

Some thoughts for you. I like the green look and different shades can work. Like my 1982 map, I only have 3 shades (dark, light and one in the middle). This provides enough contrast to show the different regions and means you do not have to worry about so many different shades blending into each other. Trees and mountains. They look comical compared to the rest of the map. Something similar but more realistic should work. Title needs work (you know this but I like to point out the obvious :D ). Have you made a decision on a mini map or will you keep the legend as it is. A mini map will work better though.

That could work, though it might look strange when we see it on every region. But who knows!

You could try turning them around and putting them onto flag poles. With a little detail it might just work.

How is this coming Bruce? Also please change the title to read as follows: Baltic States v.X [25 Nov 2012] pg.X This will make it easier for everyone to know when the last update was done, and what page it is on.

That not a bad idea with the flags Bruce, see if you can't find something.... a few somethings that are regional relavent symbol wise for those flags, and I think you'll be well on your way.

[Moved]

Two fortnightly review periods have passed without any updates or meaningful engagement from the mapmaker(s),therefore the map is considered stalled. If the mapmaker wants to continue with the map, then one of the Foundry Moderators will be able to help put the thread back into the Foundry system, after an update has been made. ;)

Have the continent names in a feint text, etched into the background, off-white against green, just visible.

Then mini-map can just have bonus values in the same coloured text as region names :-)

P.S> You dont fancy 2 captials +1, all three +2 ?? Capitals could be stars, no need for any text explanation, just " ** 1 " and " *** 2 " ??
