Fair enough. I think, if you keep the rivers, mountains & oceans from the unofficial version, you could keep the brighter colors from v.8.

And reverend, as for your version: :sick:

i think the version which is the last post on page 4 looks awesome. the shading around the edges, gives it the brightness still, but with a smooth trasition. i like it a lot, keep it up

couldn't agree more... it's beautiful man (hippie talk) =D>

P.S. the only reason I don't say anything about the game play is because I think it's already as good as it can get without making it worse. :-#
You don't have an income like mine, plus you've never even ridden in my amazing rocket car... Maybe if I get bored I'll bench press it for you.

What is the flavor for the one-way attacks in the Andes, if any?

rather than darkening teh color just put a good texture on top which will keep the colors bright but no to painful to the eyes
What do you know about map making, bitch?

I am in love with the idea that someone is finally going to do a South America map. My personal favorite is the second to last version so far with the darker faded colors and shadows. I think that looks pretty sweet.

Postby vjmx 247 on Sat Jun 30, 2007 3:50 am

i think you increase the amount of armies received for holding a continent
maybe increase every continent bonus by 1 army

Exactly right. However, I think you have gone slightly too far the other way as it is too dark in some places. Nevertheless, your fade effect has worked wonders

I like the brightness, however it looks WAY too much like your carribean map.
