This is maby not a question for you, so lets ask the mods, how close to beta are we here ?

isaiah40 wrote:5. The star, and actually all the stars are way too hard to see. I only see 2 stars on the map itself, if there are more I can't find them (this is especially true on the color blind version). Get a good contrasting color, maybe a bright color?

2. The logo however being a different style is intentional and goes back about 20 pages or so. The debate was for a while that the map needed a theme. And the theme / setting is a poster hanging in a butcher shop wall. Keeping that in mind the Logo on the poster was created by a different person than the one who wrote on the chalk board.
6. The same debate relates to the special offer text. To fit into the theme, I had to avoid words like attack. Because it was argued that you can't attack on a cow map. It's more like you are trying to buy, or own the whole cow, hence words like acquire. Also think writing out the regions on offer makes it more clear than only having them written in the special offer sticker.
5. I can play around with the color of the stars, keeping in mind the color will look a little different depending what color background they are on. However I don't think the stars are hard to find. I would think if someone could notice small details on the chalkboard boarder they could easily see all the stars.

But it can be time consuming to uploaded spot the difference variations on this map over and over again, so is it possible to get a definitive list from the people in charge of approving a graphics sticker before I post another update.
What do you think, koontz1973? You seem to be the one in charge. Can you approve a list of final changes?
isaiah40 wrote:While it is true that you have to have a theme, the problem here is you have more of a old west font for the title, while the rest says 50's/60's style. So you have a font from the late 1800's to the early 1900's, and the rest of the map is between 1950 through the mid 1960's. See the problem?

Please bear this in mind because players don't necessarily look closely at a map, and they WILL miss things. It is your job to make sure that the stars can be easily found. I noticed the differences on the chalk boards without really looking, the stars blend into the map too much.
