I would like to do it all at once, so a confirmation would be nice before proceed.
Thanks in advance

Nope, I moved 4 army ovals on the small and 2 on the large (maybe more once I finish). I'll be posting an update here soon.

- Moved Pensacola Fl, Gulfport MS army ovals on the large,
- Moved the southern Michigan border up so it is more visible on both

So it's just a couple of coords? everything else it's like in the current xml?

Ok guys, finally I was able to check and double check this huge xml file.
It was nightmare in some parts! ](*,)

Anyway, here below a list of things for you:

Coords to move
Small Version
    -Arcata
    -San Francisco
    - Pierre
Big Version
    Juneau

Unclear Connections (not everyone is american :!: )
Small Version
    - Boston, it's not clear if is in Maine or Massachussets
    -Newark, not clear if it is in New York or New Jersey (this one could be good because there's the abbrevaition into the legend)
    -Richmond <-> Virginia Beach, dots are almost invisible there
    -Philadelphia <-> Trenton, the road is invisible there
    -Augusta <-> Savannah, dot's visible, but they could be better
    -Kennewick <-> Spokane, again dots
    -Lawton <-> Oklahoma City, dots invisbile
    -D.C. is Maryland but looks VA on the map
    -Weston is not clear if it is West Virginia or Maryland

Big Version
    -Boston border is unclear

I strongly suggest to add abbreviations (e.g. Alaska (AK) ) to the bonus names so it's written in the log, it's a pain to understand where some are if you don't have a knowledge of US geography.

Missing Connections (I found just one gilly :P )
    -Seattle <-> Anchorage, missing blue plane connection

Missing Parts/info/Components into bonuses
    - D.C. doesn't have the +2 autodeploy into the code but i see it on the map.
    -Capitals on Route 35, Austin is not included into it. Obviously the <bonus> tag must be extended to include the 4 option.
    -Boston is not on Route 90, when the route starts (or ends) into that city.
    -Route 20 has some unnecessary lines into the code, line 1496 and 1497 can be deleted
    -Pennsylvania is +5 on the map but only +4 into the code
    -Dyer is not part of Kentucky
    -Tennessee is not listed anywhere as bonus inot the code
    -Utah and washington are doubled into the code, lines from 1017 to 1040 can be deleted

Starting Positions & Neutrals
    -Annapolis is the only starting positions with 5 starting neutrals. Is it desired?

That's all! ;)

Corrections done!

- Boston, it's not clear if is in Maine or Massachussets - Moved Boston down
-Newark, not clear if it is in New York or New Jersey (this one could be good because there's the abbrevaition into the legend) - I agree, since Newark is in the abbreviation legend it should be self explanitory
-Richmond <-> Virginia Beach, dots are almost invisible there - Moved down
-Philadelphia <-> Trenton, the road is invisible there - Moved to the left
-Augusta <-> Savannah, dot's visible, but they could be better - Added Augusta to the abbreviation list
-Kennewick <-> Spokane, again dots - Moved down and to the left
-Lawton <-> Oklahoma City, dots invisbile - Moved to the left
-D.C. is Maryland but looks VA on the map - For gameplay purposes D.C. is in neither Maryland or Virginia (though it is technically in Maryland) so no changes made
-Weston is not clear if it is West Virginia or Maryland - Moved down


Big Version

-Boston border is unclear - Moved down

This map is going to be bloody awesome.

Had a look at it finally on my TV. Bloody marvellous to see it in all of its glory on a 62" TV. No scrolling on that, even with the large map.

I don't want to seem stubborn, but in the code Boston is not included into route 90 :P

Code: Select all
   <!-- Route 90 -->
<continent>
 <name>Capitals on Route 90</name>
  <bonuses>
    <bonus required="2">2</bonus>
   </bonuses>
   <components>
    <territory>Albany</territory>
    <territory>Madison</territory>

Oh oh oh, I misunderstood you. I thought you said Boston was not in route 90 even on the map. My mistake.
Added boston.

Maybe kind of late to chip in with this observation, but it seems like the Calgary text is running into "HI +1".
It's decipherable, but maybe to avoid first look confusion you could move the Calgary text to the lower right of the troop circle.

And a few of the state abbreviations I would shift (just a suggestion for whatever it's worth)
AR a couple pixels left
VA up slightly
VT right one pixel

Awesome map!

Wow, this map is a doozy! Nice work, I guess!

How'd you figure the color scheme? It seems like a rather strange choice of colors.
