I like this map, but only problem is with colors... they look too strong and darkish IMO... I think it would be a lot better if colors could be lighten a bit!

nice map. original idea to make it as graffiti.
just one notice, could you also explain Underdog bonus in small map? just something like:
Underdog bonus (hold only)
3 Regions 1
2 Regions 2
1 Region 4

Nice map, but I have to echo some of the comments about the colour and having to really concentrate o=to distinguidh the numebr, regions etc. Maybe soften the brick colours a bit and make the black teritory outline a bit stronger?

I like this map. Played it a few times yesterday. The only problem. You can't see it. I had to use Bob to dim the background and brighten the region circles to make it playable. I think the brick background is cool, but it needs to be more background than as the only thing on top of it that is really clear enough is the name "Philadelphia".

Agree with all above, can't read this map at all because of the colors.

I would highly recommend increasing the opacity of the colors so that the brick pattern isn't as prominent. I believe this would help most of the vision problems that people are having.

My initial feel is I like the gameplay, I'm not concerned there but the colors are an issue and I think rds may be on to something.

I have to echo what the others are saying. I like the layout and the different bonus areas, but the colors seem like the need adjusting. I didn't even realize that gray had taken the purple bonus region: Game 12387301.

I would have gone with a more historical feel, but the graffiti is nice. It's a cool-looking map!

XML change is just for the title of the Underdog Bonus in the log.

Image changes reduces the opacity of the brick texture by 25% and removing of certain aspects of color enhancements that should clear up any and all clarity issues.
