I like the subtle geographic background i have going on atm. Without it everything is flat and would require more artificial textures. Something i dont really want.

p.s. is it safe to mark this as an [OFFICIAL] revamp thread?

There has been demand, the author showed up to ask, you persued it and recieved direct permission. If he wanted there to be a contest he made no mention of it. You are the official revamp artist, much like how the Brazil revamp went.

I really don't like the country flags as is. Not sure how to fix it, but I'd rather play the current map than that one (and I've played this map alot).

Also, can you change the text of the oceans? Looks like they were just thrown on there.

They're too distracting from the countries, and overpower the map. They need to be much much much lighter.

Ill keep that in mind, they may not be so distractiong with either:

A. Adding army circles

or

B. The army numbers shown covers the map a little.

failing any of these options working ill tweek them again.

no, the army circles won't help. the country lines are so light, as is the text, where the flags seem to be the "top layer" and shouldn't be.

Evidently you are seeing something im not, the terr names and te boarders are solid black, 100% visable. The flags are layered UNDER the boarders. Never the less . . .

No I know it was under, but it didn't SEEM that way since the flags were so "loud" and the territory lines so light. I think that's it, it's too busy. Muting it a bit like you did is a step in the right direction, but I still don't like look of the flags as backgrounds, sorry.

Also, can you do away with the multiple names for the countries?

And why is the Gloucest.. circle so dark?

This is to get realistic geography into the map. THe main reason alot of people asked for a revamp was becasue of the geographical inaccuracy of it. The only way to keep the map moderatly accurate while keeping the exact same gameplay was to merge regions and give mutiply names.

An accident will fix for the next update.
