--------------------------------------------

As promised here is the new and improved classic touchup. This map has entered final forge as a near complete map. All concern should be of anything people feel need to be done to improve upon issues or concern on the map.

Take note the artist of the revamp has been asked to stay out of light for this one, I will act as a third person between artist and community for this.

What has been touched up:
  • Lighter army shadows.
  • Color coordiantion between continents and legends.
  • Improvment on the visuals of territory names.
  • All army numbers are now properly centered.

A lot of the territories names seem kinda un-natural. It may just be the way the light is shinging on my computer but some of them seem kinda cramped and discolored.

can you maybe whiten the text color so it s a little easyer to read? so it doesn't look so blured, i don't know if it would work or not so i think you shoudl try it and post it.

Ah, now that's much better than the half-ass touch-up.

I do have one request, which may not be in the purview of this touch-up, but it's something that's always annoyed me on classic: would it be possible to get rid of that mobile missile platform (that looks way more like a caterpillar than it should) that's on baffin island?

I'd *love* to see the sea borders redrawn. They look so pixally to me...

Gimil...nice work...the only prob i had the original was i couldn't see the numbers against the background properly....do you think you army shadows go light enough considering many of your shadows show a background tinge of the continent colour?
