Love to accomidate you here Andy but I already have an issue with some names at the borders and even going over the borders. Bumping the size up will only make this worse. Can I ask though, do you find it hard to read.

If size can't be bumped, what about the strength of the color? Maybe darker would do it, without ruining the color scheme or overpowering it.

These are the kind of maps I like... ;) I don't need to really say anything, the community takes care of it all for me, and the mapmakers quickly does their part, have a cookie koontz!

Lets hear any final input on graphics, guys.

Forgive me here, but what does it mean when it says "+1 for every 4 connected regions in a territory"? As far as I knew, regions and territories were synonymous. Does it mean "bonus"?

Yes it does. And like the rest of the map, the bonus has a Latin flare to it. I actually had this the other way round and got told that it was wrong CC terminology.

According to instructions page (http://www.conquerclub.com/public.php?m ... tructions2), the new terminology for "bonus" is "zone" and not "territory"?

Zone or territory?

Zone is better then and will change it but does territory confuse that much all the while sounding better? Either way I am good.

I think territory would cause a bit of confusion as people use it synonymously with region, but it's your call.

I don't like the font you've used in the corners or the bridges.

Will get it changed.

What is wrong with them, graphically?

EDIT: Changed territory to zone on Gilligans advice. I have my doubts about this one as it might cause players in Austrum to ask for the bonus to apply to the ships on the right hand side of the board.

Visually this map is a work of art. If I was a lesser man I'd be jealous, but I'm not :), awesome graphics koontz, players are going to love this map!
And now on to the gameplay;
I'm worried about how frequently players will drop a bonus. It's the one thing that can really sink an otherwise awesome map. Have you checked how frequently someone would drop a bonus? (1v1 in particular)
