I'm happy for any help - thanks. I sort of like having it in Dutch - it was your colony.

This is just a beautiful map vaughn. I will do whatever I can to help you through the process, even though I'm not blue anymore. I really, really want to see this in play.

I'll give it a try. If I don't have to work all weekend, I'll get it up.

Thanks. Any ideas about 'tying' the bottom together? Someone said something about it not feeling cohesive down there, I think...

Try to shrink down those paper sheets to fit under the map rather than overlap it.

NEW CHANGES: Fixed a couple names again - this may go on forever. Enlarged troop circles, Sea Passages, Lesser and Major Ports. Modified Legend - tried to 'unify' and make better use of space. Changed font to Bahasa Indonesia, that HAS to be right... Size of Map was approved LONG AGO... Would still like it to be bigger...

I use to see like a monkey claw coming out of the title of the map - now all I see is a monkey's face...

Though the claw gave the map more of an edge...

Oh wait, that was your profile avatar - oh, well ... never mind...

the legend is very confusing because it apparently uses fleet to refer to, for example, SF1, but it also uses fleet to refer to the bonus consisting of SF1, SF2 and SF3. am i right? if so, then the legend must be changed so that a different word is used in one of these cases.

for the armada bonus, does a player need to hold all three fleets, being the spanish, portuguese and dutch fleets, a total of 9 ships?

what regions will start neutral to prevent players from starting with bonuses? please list these in the first post.

I think you have way too much white outer glow on all the text.
