I'm editing the both separated because of army cyrcles. I missed those details but will be fixed in next version.

I think I'll take ender516 sugestion

Did you up the saturation on this? It looks like it. While the brighter colors are nice, I prefer the pastel flavor of the previous versions.


I didn't change nothing on that... That's odd but maybe I'll take a look to sea routes.

It's the Pope's cross and it's in Roma.

Thank you all for your sugestions!

I think the difference is that you saved the latest version as a png versus the previous versions being jpegs.

Overall, the map looks great. But I'm not a huge fan of those mountains. They could use some work IMO.

Right now they kinda look like tents or something. I'm just saying, judging by the quality of the rest of the map, I'm sure you could come up with something better for the mountains.

Also the legend needs a bit clarification. The first two bonuses, yershalaim + roma (+1) and yershalaim + roma + shield (+2)... When you hold the latter bonus, which is the same as the former but with a shield territory, will you get both bonuses (+3) or does the latter bonus override the former, so that you only get the +2? This should be explained in the legend.

"Aragon" on the small map is covering the sea connector from Medina. In the legend the 5's look almost like the 3's. I dunno what you can do about that short of changing the font... :?

then on the small map you have to move the name and the cross
so the cross is inside the territory not on the border
where it confounds with the line
and maybe change its colour
as it is almost the same as port anchors

About the mountains there was a problem with the last mountain between HRE and Balkans but consider it solved. About that issue in the legend I hadn't noticed but indeed it is quite confuse. The point is that one gets one army for Yerushalahyim and Roma and plus 2 for any shield. I'll have to work on the text in the legend.

Thank you all once again!

Cheers!

Version 22

Postby Beko the Great on Tue Feb 02, 2010 1:53 pm

Here it is the version 22 of this map!:

Large

Small

Changes:
In the legend it is clear now that Yerushalahyim and Rome are worth of 1 army and you receive extra +2 for any shield owned;
Mountains between the Balkans and HRE are now more natural. I won't change the style of the mountains because I realy like them and I think it suites the map.
In the small map, the pope's cross is now totaly inside Roma and doesn't look like a cedar tree anymore!
In the small map, Aragon is not covering the sea route anymore.

I hope that no more changes are needed!

Postby natty dread on Tue Feb 02, 2010 2:18 pm

The legend is better now. However, IMO it would be even better like this:

# & ! +1 with additional +2 for each @

where # represents the yershalaim symbol, ! is the rome symbol and @ is a shield.

The mountains... meh, I guess it's a matter of personal preference. They still look like huts to me, but it's not going to keep me from playing the map. There are maps with worse mountains in play. However I would like it if you would at least try some alternatives. Maybe some steeper mountains, with sharper points? I do like the colour of the mountains, just the shape seems wrong.

Hmmmm :-k

Just a random thought really... How was the First Crusade known before there was a second one? Would it be appropriate to relabel

A nitpick better suited to the FF, I propose this map moves on.

But I see your point Benn. On one hand we're all of the 21st century looking back, logically it is the first crusade. (Also there was no qualm made over WWI Ottoman Empire).

But perhaps something like The Great Crusade might work... The Crusade sounds just to plain to me.

And speaking of the Second Crusade... has anyone given any thought to it? We've got 1 and 3.

Its difficult to tell the colours on the legends, especially the small one. You could do with making the crests a bit bigger.
