People, this is all the artist is allowed to do:

army circles
territory names
legends
border adjusting

and he/she can only adjust these in a visual way. We can not make any gameplay changes, we can't make any ascetic image changes. We can not make any major color changes.

So please, just focus on commenting on those 4, most of you are understanding this, but not everyone.

I still think that there needs to be a slightly bigger contrast between Asia/Oceania... the red and the reddy-orange seem to merge a bit...

:shock: :shock: :shock:

yes it's only blurry on the small map, but that's what over 90% of people use.

Also if the orange of Aussie can be tweaked ever so slightly, it'll make it stand out more from Asia. I'm pretty sure Lack would be ok with that minor color change. :wink:

The touchup author can try increasing the contrast IF it can be done easily.

Ah, can you move S. Europe a little to the left so it's more visible to know that Middle East and S. Europe touch?

As someone who never thought the original classic map was THAT bad... I'd like to congratulate the touch-upper on a job well done - it looks fantastic! :)

was this comment ignored ?

actually could we see numbers on continents the same colour, this was a big problem in classic before touch up it would be great if it could be looked at as well

Again, I'd like to see the sea connections cleaned up a bit. They just look so blocky and jagged... Like stairs.

The text in QUEBEC for the large map still needs fixing. (edbeard pointed that out)

They look virtually the same to me. I think the new map "looks" slightly brighter due to the army circles being lighter.

They are the same between both maps. Does lack care? Connection lines were not on the list of fixes allowed. But I really don't see the harm in adding new blue lines.

EDIT: A new line between southern Europe and Middle east was added in the update. Makes sense to allow the other lines to get fixed as well. (Unless keeping them the same as the current map is OK)

They are identical except for aus which has been made less saturated than before to increase the contrast between aus and asia.

Lone.prophet's comment reminds me of someone who complained about how the colour of Africa became aweful when we tried to launch this the fist time. Africa's colour wasn't changed at all of course.

I like the new Oz orange.

let's leave the attack lines as is.

i'm having trouble distinguishing 3s from 8s in the army count, especially in dark blue. this also applies on the existing classic map. usually, it's pretty obvious which one it is if u're in the middle of a game. however, if the numbers suddenly appear in a fog game, then it might catch out a few people.
