Thanks :)

I'm starting to notice a few tweaks I want to make to the graphics, as I play the map.

Minimap (gap on mainland where tundra should be looks weird)
Queen Maud (move territory line to left so it is more visible)

I'm sure I'll see more.

It's white on grey on mine. You might want to check your brightness and contrast settings on your display. I used to think that there was something funny going on in the styles between my machines at work and at home, until I discovered that the home machine (which was shared) had its settings all wacky, so I didn't see, for example, the grey backgrounds of each post on pages like this one.

I just have a question with regards to the 'earn +1 for holding 2 expedition routes' (or similar). What should I look for with regards to that bonus in bob since I'm not really seeing where/how it applies?

Leehar -

I'm just working through that one at the moment. I realized I hadn't actually written that into the XML, so currently, no such bonus applies.

'k, thanks, good to know, I just wondered what it was referring to. Sorry I didn't look deeper into this thread to see where else you mentioned it.

They should be - I'm just waiting for the XML to be updated so they are! In the meantime, you'll have to go through Thule.

i`ll apologize first , usually i try to be positive when posting in a map thread but this map will be different. when i view this map it looks like a cluster **** . the water having different shades and the land mass colors just dont work.. the mishmash results in no depth to the map. i find myself staring real hard just to figure out what connects to what.. And then to boot theres these squigly lines running through the map.. although some of these lines have definitive points there are many that are not quite clear...
