When I mentioned moving this into final forge it was largely in response to your own, very positive, comments about the progress of the map.
But the assumption that I'd spend what has been a considerable amount of time on this, and yet think that the xml would "magically appear" just kind of rubbed me the wrong way.
I do, of course, realize that I don't make the decisions on when it gets moved to the next phase, but please don't mistake my enthusiasm for the project for being anything other than that.
We've had a reasonably respectful exchange of dialog and it would be truly regretful if that dialog were to become anything less than productive.
You might benefit from trying something akin to the arrows qwert uses to show river crossings in Eastern Front. Not trying to say the bridges don't work, just giving you another idea since a couple posters have mentioned problems with them.Elijah S wrote:The icons still seem to add to the feel for some, and detract for others. So, this may have to go up to a vote at some point.

I also put a faint portrait of Lincoln in there... I think it adds something to the map.

-Maryland, while adjacent to DC, was considered a "border state" (states which were Considered Union but were also "slave states").
Just to keep things someone uncomplicated, the neutral and border states were grouped together under the term "neutral".
-Both Delaware and Rhode Island were left out of the map due to size restraints, and I don't think gameplay should be affected by this.
-I see what you're saying about the Legend number sizes and rivers being smoothe and jagged. These issues will both be addressed as well as more precise placement of the key cities.
I really prefer the marbled texture and will try some different marbeling in future revisions.
The effect can be taken off of the flag and opacity adjusted to reduce the "dirty" appearance.
It think there may be some give and take on this, as I want the map to look crisp, yet have a feel for the era represented.
-Are you suggesting that the color of the states grouped with Pennsylvania should be changed?
Again, everyone's feedback is important and appreciated. -Elijah
