So we removed the side black as we thought it was OK. We made the boxes WIDER and were told stacking was rare, meaning we could keep the troop circles even.
i meant that v14 could cope with a colour code plus three digits, as it would always be possible read the rightmost digit without much difficulty. by removing all of the overflow space, most of the rightmost digit disappears.

I needed a few more bonuses and having modern Austria and old Habsburg was your idea.
good, except the flags are the wrong way round: 52 Te ought to be red-white-red and 60 Nd black-yellow.
talking of flags, they're too heavily weighted toward period 7, which has 4 flags, especially when considering that most of period 7 qualifies for one of the easiest bonuses; period 7 is also less vulnerable to attack than most other areas. i suggest removing the 108 Hs flag and replacing it with one in, say, period 3, which has none at present.
