Well lets see...
---Jota you are one of the reasons I love the Foundry job. You have always strived for uniquess both in game play and location in all your maps. I must say, Thanks for everything.
Anyways, enough ego boosting, lets get to the map.
---Could this map be the first of the 'building' maps? We'll have to see.
---First off one thing I see trouble with is the green background. The choice limits contintental colors. I might look into keeping the 'brown/orange/red orange' continents now so near each other. Use the colors to break them up. Also keeps people from confusing them in the legend.
---What are you considering for this green background? Curious George wants to know. Perhaps even look into making the Quad and the Parking lot shades of gray, or something slightly different from the green background.
---I'm not so sold on the green text you've got going. Maybe stick to simple black. For the font though I like the choice.
---And what are your ideas for the 'texture' for the contients? Perhaps something similar to USApocalypse image use. Images in the background of their respective area. Tennis rackets and footballs for the Athletics, etc.
---One thing you have started to experiment with, is the shape and design of the buildings. I think there should be even more building uniqueness, stray away from the repeated single square and rectangle. Maybe a L shape. Go look at Tetris.
---Also what are your ideas for the connecting lines?
---I like the names of the countries. I even notice the nod to map making in the Liberal Arts continent
---As for the legend, I think there could be a lot of fun experimentation here. Maybe an open book? Maybe a stack of books and papers for the background, or a backpack. You know college things. They could also be used in the 'blank' spaces of the map.
Hm, Hopefully I'll have time to think on it more later! Interesting idea, I wondered what you had in mind when you mentioned you had a working idea for your next map. Don't burn yourself out!
