Suggestions for consideration

Postby cairnswk on Sat Jun 02, 2007 1:58 pm

Hi Haola...this is looking very good and has come a long way.

I would like to comment on a couple of points if I may:

1. There are a couple of names that are a little unclear as to what is what from my viewpoint - at the top there is Pulau Punggol Barat and Pulau Punggol Timor. It is possible to move the Malaysia over to the right and move those two names apart and up a bit and maybe use an indication line to one of them so that area is not a cramped

2. At the bottom, Pulau Semakau...is that sitting over the top of an attack line. If so, can it be moved to the right and use an indication line for this also.
The other option you might like to consider is to extend the size of your map down by 20 or 30 pixels so that name can sit under the island rather than over the top of the attack line.

3. On some of the islands, you have the army shadow sitting right over the top of the islands. Can you move these off to one side so that the island is clear and able to be distinguished with the army shadow touching the islands at the edge in a clear position to show which island the arny shadow belongs to.

There is nothing to say that all your army shadows have to sit in the middle of the territory. So move them around a little if it means there is more space for other names and some areas might then be not so cluttered...you know play with it a little and give everything some space.

4. The legend looks good, but is very small...perhaps that extra 20-30 pixels you add to the bottom of the map might give a little more room to increasing the size of the fonts in the legend including the bonus numbers.

Hope this helps.... and it is looking good. :)

Continents based on districts

Here's the next update

*are the colours ok?

I peraonally think teh color are excellent. There consistance but all diffirent.

*shall hougang in north-east have anything special?

No. its to small to fit anything into, u dont really have the space. I peronally thnig gameplay wise its looking good.

*are the airports and the bonus ok?

Airports should have the bonuses bumped up to 3.

north should be brought down to 2 since u only have 1 terriroty to defend.

north east needs to be moved up to 3, maby even 4. it has 4 territories, 3 of these have to be defended to gain the bonus.

*is the bonus for orange too much? (it has an airport)

^^see above

The rest of my concenes are graphical not gameplay wise.

1.the borders arent consistant and if u look close enuff there some of the sea texture between some boarders and the land color.

2.The highlight on the "N" on the compass is cut off at the top.

3. Im not a fan of the sea texture.

Keep up teh good work :wink: [/quote]

gouache light on watercolor is my favourite i think maby the color a bit strong and deep comapred with the rest of the map. is it possible to soften it down and maby change it to a less vibrant shade of blue?

sorry if im being an arse :wink:

good to see this map progressing

i think washed watercolor paper is the best of the lot. however, i agree with gimil that the bonus for orange should be down to 2; it has too few territories. If you want to leave it at 3, at least give one more territory

some of your circles arent really in the right place

pls use a different colour or line texture to differentiate links between countries and the link to the name. currently your line to show pulau punggol barat makes me think that there is a link to malaysia.

is it possible to put the bit about the airports with the rest of the legend?

blue continent should have 8 bonus it has an airport, alot of territories and alot of borders too.

red continent should have at least 1 more bonus, because it is connected to all the other continents AND has an airport, there needs to be a reason why people want to get it. actually i think it should have 8 bonus like blue

hope you will take my suggestions into consideration
