Yep. Any suggestions? Like, where should I go?

koontz...passing another eye over this for you....
small map....
* Casa de Campo text is a different colour from the others - not as distinct and thus failing legilbly
* the sky blue texts of Sur don't stand out as much as the others for legibility - perhaps this is the drop shadow needing to be more distinct
* Nordeste text is also not as distinct - the pink blurs in with the drop shadow a little and thus is not as distinct for me as the others.

both images:
* the crossing image in the legend is not distinctive as the crossings on the map and gets lost - perhaps consider moving that text down a fraction to increase the size of the crossing to make it stand out more
* the yellow line between Ventille and Parque Agustin Rodriguez doe not extend all the way up to the boundary of the man-made lake - any reason for this? looks unfinshed!
othwerwise...this is moving towards looking really good. :)

The first thing I see is that the shadow of the bridges do not match the shadow of the buildings now.

Do not know how the Casa de Campo text became a different colour but you where right.
Fixed.
Brought out all sky blue text as well.
Not sure I see the problem with the pink text. So not fixed. Can you suggest a way for me to solve this to your liking.

Crossings and bridges on both maps made larger.
The path was their so no need for it to go all the way up. Removed the path and redid the line all the way up.
Thanks, always nice to get one of your look overs.

Whoops. Fixed.

On both maps, swapped the orange and sky blue around as well. Something about having the two blues next to each other and added the last shadow that was missed.

EDIT: New small map.

koontz, small map, Sur is still in light blue in legend.
Otherwise, everything looks better to me. the pink seems to have fixed itself :roll:

I think this looks great. Perhaps the best looking of the World City maps to come down the pipe recently. =D>

Simple map and great graphics = great map!Image
This will be a great addition to the small maps. I look forward to playing on a different small map, especially one with cool graphics.
The bridges look uber good.
I hope I am not kissing too much butt, I am trying to think of something bad to say but cant come up with anything at the moment.
