I'm not sure if you have addressed this since I last brought it up a while ago, but tell me again why on Austrum are the ships in the legend different then on the map?

They are not. I said it last time. All I did was copy and paste the ships from the map to the legend. I had to bring them out more as the background is a lot darker than the sea and where hard to see and people where missing the connection between Exploratorium and ships. But pixel for pixel, they are identical is size and shape.

No one will ever drop a bonus.

Right, I get that for sure. Let me rephrase. The ones in the legend are overall cleaner and clearer, you can see very well the nice little red flags which you can not see on the ones on the map. I don't have to tell you, you know, the map looks wonderful as is, it's just my opinion that the ships on the map should look EXACTLY like the ships in the legend, because the ships in the legend look better to me. I promise not to bring it up again after this though. :-# ;)

Seamus, I understand the point you are making, but the ones in the legend are brighter for various reasons as explained. Darker background made them invisible when as on the map. So they needed to go brighter. That is all that was done. But when you take that brightness and place it onto the map, you get ten spots of brightness which looks out of place.

But if certain others agree, I will change it.

No, that makes sense. I'm not sure you explained it that way before, but if on the map they don't look right then you have it the way it should be. You may proceed. :lol: Just kidding.

But again, great work on them both (or should I say all 4 of them). It's obvious your skills have come a long way, and you are working very hard to learn and try new techniques. Well done my man.

Austrum
Decided that Seamus had a point after all so brought the ships a bit. As I said to him, 10 points of light on the map looked bad but I think this half way point works.

Koontz,

Austrum XML:

Iiex should not border Mair
Gyara should border Mair
----edit: I see what happened here. The connections are different on the small and on the large. Whichever is right go with. In the XML as is, it matches the small version.
Sarnia is misspelled Carnia

You are also missing these Connect 4 bonuses:
Gaulos Ionia Icaria Melite
Gaulos Ionia Icaria Thasos
Gaulos Ionia Icaria Sarnia
Phew, took a few minutes to find all of them in that area!

Other than that, things seem to be good.

This looks to be really similar to the Classic Cities Moscow map. Which came first?

Moscow did by a few years.

As for similar, how? Both are completely different styles. The only similarity I can see is the circular layouts.
