you should change some names on the map:

Braga Sul should be only Braga
Braga should be Viana do Castelo

Algarve Este should be Vila Real de Santo Antonio
Algarve Oeste should be Sagres

Hi gimil,

Please don't take any of the following recommendations as things that you have to do. They are merely suggestions that I think would help a few elements match the rest of your beautiful map.

And while I certainly don't speak for KEYOGI, I suspect that he had the same sentiment in mind when he carefully worded this:
KEYOGI wrote:Could you perhaps make the sea connections with a bit of a curve to them? The sharp straight lines kind of clash a bit, especially with the soft colours you have throughout the map.


1) I made this suggestion before, but either I wasn't very clear in my explanation or you didn't like the look:
Sparqs wrote:
gimil wrote:
Sparqs wrote:Haoala's suggestion may be better. I think the grey highlight region would look good with a rounded, free-flowing shape.

what do you mean?

I mean that the grey highlight area might look better if it looked more like a puddle, instead of having sharp 90-degree corners and straight edges.
In case I was unclear before, I have included an example of the puddle shape that I suggest you use to indicate the island-continent on the inset bonus-value map. Please ignore my color choice.

2) I know that several people have mentioned that they prefer the straight lines, but they might change their minds when they see the smoother curves I propose below. I'm not sure what application you are using to create your map, but based on the look, I suspect you have access to vector drawing tools (in contrast to bitmap painting tools). If so, you might try using the Bezier curves (the pen tool in Photoshop) to get smooth lines. Obviously I'm biased, but I think the results below look nice and match the style of your map.

3) Also related to the sea-connection lines, I think it would look nice if they were all consistently pointing to the land or all pointing to the army circles, instead of some of each. And since you are always pointing at land on the mainland side, I'd suggest that for the islands, too. Again, I have illustrated this below.

Thank you for considering my suggestions.

I'm not sure the two curved sea route examples look that great, but I think Sparqs version still looks better than the sharp straight lines. I think they just need some subtle curve to them or perhaps a different style sea route altogether.

Somo map Changes that could be done

Braga -> Viana do Castelo
Braga Sul -> Braga
Barca D'Alva -> Miranda do Douro
Esterlo -> Figueira da Foz
Figueira da Foz -> Pombal
Abrantes -> Tomar (não é bem naquela zona, mas está mais perto que Abrantes)
Mora -> Santarém
Almada -> Setúbal
Setúbal -> Alcácer do Sal
Alentejo Sul -> Beja
Beja -> Sines
Sines -> Odemira
Algarve Oeste -> Lagos ou Portimão

Trocar Açores Norte e Sul por Ocidental e Oriental ou Este e Oeste que é a designação destes.. Açores North and South by West and East, because it´s there name)
