Yes, for me much better. Do not forget to remove the black lines running down the sides of the gold clips though. Pechatniki and Gagarinskiy.

Well, tbh this map is challenging for me to read but not impossible. The colorblindness thing certainly does slow down my comprehension of the map but it appears that the colors are just contrasting enough so that I can make them out if I focus and shift my eyes back and forth enough from one to the other. It's a very pretty map though and I think that in order for you to make it readable enough for me to use it easily you would lose a lot of this prettiness.
For the record though I'll not the spots that look very close at a glance, enough for me to have to slow down and focus back and forth:

Severo-Zapadny/Vostochny
Yuzhny/Yugo-Vostochny

As I said though, I can make them out if I try, it just takes a little more effort. I'll use waterloo again as a reference as this map is much easier to read than that one. Tbh, I could work with this. I do think it's a beautiful map and it definitely captures that Old Russian feel. .

Those I have no idea what goes with what but I assumed they were not part of the bonuses. If they are, I may have a problem with this map after all as far as colorblindness is concerned.


OK, thanks FT.
If i'll see what i can do with the colours of those regions you mentioned...i don't think it will lose it's charm :)

the black border instead yellow is more clear. maybe a less opacity (also for border around river) could helps. the impassable gold circle has one (two?) parts another as the rest ones...

nice map. :)

Good

consider done
the impassable gold circle has one (two?) parts another as the rest ones...

the impassable gold circles is representational and meant to show that the section is impassable...of course on the map there are 5 sections. It is fine.
nice map. :)

Can you place the 888's in the stars as well cairns? I think the the 888's will overlap a couple of the region names in a couple of places, especially on the small.

no, isaiah40, i cannot place the 888s in the stars, because the stars are not territories, and 888s should not be in the stars.
the 888s are on the small map. did you have too much xmas cheers this morning? or simply wake up on the wrong side of the bed? :)
or simply fail to read the legend about the stars?

The impassable ring is very pixelly, especially on the top portion of it. Also the bottom right inset doesn't look as good as the other 3 insets. I see a lot of black pixels on the building. Can you try and clean it up a bit??

NO, this is the way that is comes out of the CorelDraw functions.
I have masked the gold rings sections when doing the gold process so that it wouldn't pixelate too much, however it still occurs.
On the corner images, these are 4 different images that have differing elements, i have tried to apply the same watercolour process to them so they turned out much the same.
I see a lot of black in all images...and am happy with them. :)
