the armies are still hard to see. i really liked the first touchup with the very bright army shadows. it was perfectly readable.
now with each and every update we're moving closer and closer to the original map. probably in the next update we'll see some black army circles. :(

Don't now why people on here don't like being cooks, remember under siege: A former SEAL, now cook, is the only person who can stop a gang of terrorists when they sieze control of a US Navy battleship.

my thoughts exactly
I also agree. the original revamp/touchup was very bright. Mostly due to the very white army circles and maybe the text as well.

BAsed on what has been posted earlier, the main purpose of this touch up was to:
    1) Make the territory names readable
    2) Make the numbers readable

SO........
1)The territory names readable <CHECK>
2)Army numbers Readable <NOT ENOUGH>

They are better than the current map but still hard to read.

Some people say they are good while others say they are not good.

So now what?

it's quite simple actually, make the army circles brighter and tell all those that complain it's too bright to suck it up. :D

Just noticed this thread.

For me Asia and Oceania are still a bit too close colour wise. Note that I am colour blind. Maybe the colour difference for these 2 continents could be accentuated?

I don't think it's the brightness or color of the circles necessarily, rather the transparency. for example congo on the small map, there appears to be a dark blotch between the two numbers. And actually when I look at the map with just the circles, all the circles seem to have a dark blotch in the center, like it's faded out in the middle or something? Why not try to make the circles equal in color/transp/etc.. all the way across instead of the fade effect. Lightening up the center will help readability IMO.

I like the difference in color between aussie and asia on the countries, but in the legend they're hard to distinguish still, mainly the small legend.

i actually think a poll is the wrong way to decide this as those with inferior eyesight will always be in the minority

On the small map, Western U.S. has a misplaced coordinate. It needs to be moved to the left one pixel. Great work by the way. And I voted 60% opacity.

After my vote, there were 12 votes for 50% and edit: 15 for higher percents.

Even though 50% is winning by a wide margin, there's a majority that want it brighter than that. Maybe take that into consideration when the poll closes, then maybe revote with fewer choices.

you can better count all the % to one total and do this:
...% : total votes
and you get the percent that fits most oppinions

Currently 38% of people have voted for 50% opacity circles (the lowest option)... this means that 62% of people would prefer them at least slightly brighter - this is the point that I think freeman10 was making...
