This was the original picture i used

The cropped version is this:

Yellow is the area im doing, red is the sea and green is other countries.[/img][/list]


I think the whole india being separated thing threw me off... and made it seem funny looking.. i stand corrected.. Ilike it..

execept for that there seems too be too many borders..

This is the latest edit. I dont have any of the unpassables in yet because my version with the unpassables gets strange every time i try and edit it.

Ive added a country to afghanistan so that the additional bonuses of owning both pakistan and afghanistan are not excessive. The point of the bonuses of owning either afghanistan or pakistan was the upper hand if someone else was going for the same two continents.

I had the last background because i wanted it to feel like the monsoonal rains of india, but because it was not liked ive changed it to red, which i think is an indian colour. Will change it in the future to make it more pretty, as with the continent colours.

is there anything more imaginative to call 'northern areas' or is that just how it is refered to?

I was about to do that analysis you were asking for a few days ago, but now I'm having trouble finding a version of the map with the mountains intact (was the old version removed from Photobucket?), so I'll only post a couple quick comments for the moment.

It doesn't have to be 42. Numbers like 45 and 48 are just as good. Even 44's not too bad. Flow between continents seems pretty good here; it looks like there are multiple paths to get anyplace with no serious bottlenecks. I'll post more when the mountains are reinstated.

Well here is the picture with where i think the unpassables will go. The thick brown lines represent mountains and the thick blue lines represent rivers.

I didnt make up any of the names, theyre all from the atlas, pakistan calls that area its "Northern Areas" (doesnt really matter bcos nobody lives there cos its mountains and has nuclear radiation from bomb testing.

There now is 44 countries.

So basically what ive done since last update is:
*added title
*changed the colour of some continents
*added key
*added one ways (if anyone has linux i could use there help in improving the arrows, theres this program that makes custom arrows but its in linux only)

And if your confused about which continent is whic:
Afghanistan - the black red and green continent
Pakistan - green and white continent with star and moon
Troubled North - Blue/Purple
Himalayas - Pink
Eastern Ghats - Grey
Myanmar - red and blue
South (If you have a better name post here) - Green
West India - Yellow

i changed it to brown and yes. They are the himalayan mountains (Theyre really meant to be on the other side of the countries but dont tell anyone)

Ive gotten rid of it for the moment. What do you mean by grainy?


p.s. is it just me or is my map looking worse the further i get into its development?

Kool that would be really helpful. The site is: http://www.gimphelp.org/gfxmuse_plugins.html


You may or may not have noticed but i usually go to other peoples maps and complain about them having a country which only borders one other (In Middle Earth its belegost; in Europe its Portugal and Estonia; in the british isles its cornwall, Isle of Wight etc.) and i figured i was being a hypocrite by having askai chin with only one border, so i am thinking about having this "rule" where every country in the troubled north can attack each other. comments?
