Some other changes:

1 - Forgot about ian's suggestion to increase Pennsylvania from +4 to +5
2 - Rearranged the legend to add in a numbered list of cities on map. This was done to help with the clutter on the map, and to make it clearer and more readable. I will redo the numbers in a more logical order once this gets some feedback.

For grins and giggles here is the super large map!

It might of been for grins and giggles but it does look really nice. Will you put a texture (subtle) on the playing map and a picture into the background again?

Disappointing that the map may need a key and numbers, since I usually avoid those maps with something like that. But it is probably needed.

isaiah40...nice improvements with the dotted connections! makes the highways standout so much more
somehting is wrong with the alignment of New York City NY in the key
is there any way you can get the bottom left key text/images to line up better? perhaps put the green plane at the end of its text, and left align the highway and DC text on same guide?

Thank you! These are easy changes that can be done, so consider them done. I will wait for any other changes before I post another update.

Quick question, do the 88s fit into the circles or is the right 8 slightly out?

That texture is exactly what I asked for. Something very light and that is perfect.

Is the airport in Washington in Seattle? Is there any way to move the Bellingham text on top of or beside its dot to make that more clear?
Wichita Falls text you can double up to get it closer to it's dot.
Why does Calgary reset to 1 at the beginning of the next turn?
Sante Fe is a little close to Shiprock, could you adjust that a little.
Some of the letters in the legend seem like they can be centered a little better.
The background is a little bland, but with how busy the map is it probably needs to be.

@koontz, they fit nicely.

Yeah, I'm thinking the army circles, not the stars, just the circles need to be a hair bigger.

Why does Calgary reset to 1 at the beginning of the next turn? It's what iancanton wanted, I forget why.

Some of the letters in the legend seem like they can be centered a little better. Which letters? New York City?

Nope, the circles are as big as they are going to be, as any larger and they make the map look more cluttered.

I agree. 8-[

1) I think they fit fine. I'll post a version when I get my hands on it again.
2) I hardly have the time to do the coordinates another time, and I still have the large to do.

Sorry Gilligan, but I think the coordinates have to all be done again. :(

I'll get the large done this weekend.
