it's better now that the bonus zone borders aren't pure black, except the border on kanudi gas ples is exactly the same as the shadow colour on the impassable mountain ridges.

I would be reluctant again to change that, however, having nothing to do in my opinion with sanity sake, but perhaps more to be influenced by space consideration in the xml drop list, i would be prepared to adjust to the following:
In the top legend for inclusion...N.N. = Napa Napa
On the territory names for both map and xml, N.N. Rot Wan, N.N. Rot Tu. etc. and also N.N. Oil Refinery.

with the n.n. names, the map does lose a bit of character. although i prefer the napanapa to be written in full, i see why the refinery name needs to be abbreviated.

Ian the dark green on the mountains is #4A5118
the border line dark grey is #425542
sorry if they both look the same

well the N.N. things does loose the flavour but then RBO doesn't want NapaNapa on 5 territory names...so my suggestions is to slug it out with him, because i would prefer to have NapaNapa in full on the names.

:roll: it's your choice, I thought I was helping more than anything getting the territory name length down to a manageable level, especially on the Oil Refinery.

In the end, i don't think there is much of a problem here with putting the full names in as you can see from the small list below of already xml'ed maps where there are regions that have longer names that what is in this Pot Mosbi map.

so yes, i would like to return to the full names. That in turn will enable players to directly look for that name and not have to remember or check the legend each time to see what N.N. stands for. It will also free up that spoace in the legend again for better eye real estate.

Also, as i've said before there is the cultural aspect that has to be considered.
I think to alter these altogether is like asking someone to rename the Ben Franklin Bridge from your Philadelphia map.
You see, i think in making these maps we owe it to culture to stick to the names given on map as much as possible, even if there is a small creative license involved. :)

Golf ples or plas is hard to read

nappa nappa whatever tree is covered by the numbers

enga tribe all kind of blurs together...maybe consider extending the 'pinkish background more behind the text there so it isn't trees. This could solve that issue

Looks good otherwise. it is a big map to take in just initial impression wise.

In your legend All Parks looks blurry and the "s" on the Parks is sitting on your border. Only other thing B.S.G. could use a little darkening. Can't wait to play this one :!: :!:

Slightly agree with the tree's looking blurry. I feel the palm trees are more 'crisp' looking then the other trees.

Bikpela Gavman Distrik - consider moving Distrik slightly to the left so the 'k' is not on the border

Consider the same things I said about Enga tribe overlaying on the trees with the other tribes as well ( jiwiki / jimbu / highland / the I and W in Iwan )

Can you sharpen the images of the characters next to each tribe too? So they stand out more/look slightly more detailed?

There is no line between lapun biktur and tuaguba....should there be?

Also I have a slight difficulty with continuity in the legend in the bottom that depicts region bonus'. Take Tokarara for an example. Similar? Yes...Exactly proportionate? No....Is there a way you can cut and paste the resize the territory without the names from the map to the legend? This way the exact region bonus shapes are the same as in the legend which will increase the ease of reading the legend.

I seem to not be able to understand what a utility is and what a parka is...I see they each have a bonus for holding all of them and that all utilities connect, but don't know what a utility or a parka is by looking at the map. Clue me in?

Parks...fixed.
B.S.G.... do youy mean lightening?

Jippd wrote:Slightly agree with the tree's looking blurry. I feel the palm trees are more 'crisp' looking then the other trees.

the map is done in Fireworks and imported to Coreldraw for text and legend.
Next Version. the image has adaptaive unsharpening applied

Bikpela Gavman Distrik - consider moving Distrik slightly to the left so the 'k' is not on the border

Done

Consider the same things I said about Enga tribe overlaying on the trees with the other tribes as well ( jiwiki / jimbu / highland / the I and W in Iwan )

the tribe images are being re-done..so this will be attended to.

Can you sharpen the images of the characters next to each tribe too? So they stand out more/look slightly more detailed?

i take it you mean text here..if so, done

There is no line between lapun biktur and tuaguba....should there be?

there is, but it is covered on what you see...next version fixed.

Also I have a slight difficulty with continuity in the legend in the bottom that depicts region bonus'. Take Tokarara for an example. Similar? Yes...Exactly proportionate? No....Is there a way you can cut and paste the resize the territory without the names from the map to the legend? This way the exact region bonus shapes are the same as in the legend which will increase the ease of reading the legend.

this method has already been applied, but because of space limitations in some parts of the legend some scaling is not always equal. I will try to improve this.

Ah...do you have utilities in the US? You know - water, gas, electric, telephone...well appliy that principle here and you have the purple territories as utilities (unless you are CB)
Can you not see the parks are dark green?

We do have utilities here. I understand it now. Looking at the description for utilities I was confused because they look white in the legend and more blue on the map itself.

I also feel the textures underlaid on jackson epo and the distrik make the utilities look less uniform which may add to confusion for people looking at the map and trying to figure out what is what.

I can see where Jippd is coming from, in regards to how utilities look on the map vs the legend, etc.

^^^ Agreed, there is slight colour variation, but surely they all look purple...not blue?
Also, since they are completely seperated in the map, it is not possible to put them all together like the other continents.
Unfortunately, i cannot think of another way of displaying them graphically.
I will however, change the colour to make it more uniform.
i'm not in favour of removing the underlying textures from the airport or government district, particularly the later.

You could do more of the cross-hatching / stitching you have on the map for the Parks, and apply something similar to the Utilities, and then in the legend show the cross-hatching.

Since they are semi-special regions in a semi-special bonus (not continuous, etc) it could make sense to have a little more differentiation.

Best,

Version 15

I hope this addresses all the issues raised above.
I've tried for different background/more disctinct patterns on the parks and utitlities...and to be honest it looked like crap and i wasn't happy with it. I think the map is already busy enough with the text, so i went for a subtler pattern on the parks and left the utilities as are.
the tribes are finished being re-done, and various names have been moved etc, also lots of trees felled to make things clearer.

Tribes are much clearer to read. Nice work

As for the utilities I definitely see an improvement but if you can tweak the shading on the minimap(legend) of the utilities to have them shaded more or more of a purple hue it would be better I think.

I think the problem is that the fade with purple border fading to a white on the regular map the purple stands out more so it looks purple. This may because the image is bigger in size or the border is thick. Or the actual purples used may be different. When looking at it in the legend though it does not look the same shade to me. I'm guessing because the fade is not as noticable/the purple border is not as pronounced/wide in the minimap/legend.

They are close, but don't look exact to me.

Though I can't tell if it is blue or purple though so who knows!

As for the utilities I definitely see an improvement but if you can tweak the shading on the minimap(legend) of the utilities to have them shaded more or more of a purple hue it would be better I think.

I think the problem is that the fade with purple border fading to a white on the regular map the purple stands out more so it looks purple. This may because the image is bigger in size or the border is thick. Or the actual purples used may be different. When looking at it in the legend though it does not look the same shade to me. I'm guessing because the fade is not as noticable/the purple border is not as pronounced/wide in the minimap/legend.

They are close, but don't look exact to me.

Though I can't tell if it is blue or purple though so who knows!


^^ Jippd...is something like this going to work for you.
