<Working Title> A graphically revamp of the current british isles map

Body:

<map image>
look up^^^^^^

<# of countries>
42 countries in total

The only special gamplay feature to this map is the one way boarders for hadrians wall.

This is the permission i reciever from Nobunaga to take on this revamp:

Nobunaga wrote:Hey! Thanks for the PM! That map looks very nice!

... I'd be gratified if you wanted to do the revamp. However, while the territory names can be changed to more appropriate titles, there seems to be a consensus to keep the shapes and borders lined up where they are. (otherwise it's not a revamp, it's just a new map).

... But I'm not stubborn on that last point.

... I'm going to post in the thread I started on this that you are taking command of the project, OK?

... Thanks again for the PM.

Nobunaga

im finding it a bit hard to see where the continents are could you add a inwards pointing fading out glow to the edges of the continents?

it is 'isle of wight' not 'isle of white' :lol:

Could change cambridge to cams save space.

Odd green pixel west of ireland?

odd white pixels in the orange of the ireland flag.

You aren't going to like me for this but there is a lot of dead space at the top and this map seems like it is higher then it needs to be so remove it please.

Like this maybe: Image

Also, right now I like the old map better. Maybe after you make the impassibles pretty.
