I'm not keen in doing that change. To be honest, what I'd like to do now is play this map! :mrgreen:

My fault.
I had to fix a couple of coords but RL forced me to postpone to this weekend.

Hi Nobodies my old friend,

I hate to be one of those guys who come in at the end of the map and point out graphical concerns, but I am going to have to do it anyway. They are only small ones but I hope you don't mind me pointing them out.

Firstly, symbols for the thrones I feel need a little something to make them pop out of the map. Like a drop shadow or glow, just so they look a little more integrated into the map. Rather than glued on clip art, if you know what I mean.

Secondly, your rivers are dark blue, like the darker parts of your sea. This gives me the impression that they are as deep as the ocean and thus don't feel like rivers. Would you be resistant to making them a lighter shade of blue, so they feel shallower like a river should.

Again, sorry to be that guy. I would understand if you were resistant to changes like this at this point.

Gimil ! :D
It's really nice to see you here around.
About your suggestions...no worries, I'm really happy that you have some advice for me.
Moreover, all them are small things and won't change gameplay.
I'll try to play a bit more with symbols and rivers asap, we'll see what comes out....

But I'll be away for a week, the next update will take a while.

Nobodies

Oh, btw don't forget to come back here to say me how the next update looks like! ;)

Looking at the legend, I got briefly confused.

It mentions that The Thrones 'Can attack and be attacked by the territory with the same symbol.' I looked the 'territories' on the geographical gameboard, and noticed no repeating symbols. Then after a moment I realized the 'territories' in the upper left is what that block of legend text is referring to.

Anyways, once a game initializes, there probably won't be any issue since it'll be more immediately understandable I think.

I like the map though overall. The texture of the playable regions seems a little out-sync with them, but everything else looks pretty perfect.

Good work.

I was more confused trying to figure out what you were talking about :lol:

IMO, I think it's fine. I'm still eager to play this! I like the standard gameplay type with the little added flair - it's familiar yet fresh.

I like the first image with it changes. The rivers sit much better. But the symbols still don't pop enough for my liking. I think a darker outline would be better than the lighter one you have used. An outer glow, that doesn't, well, glow. If you know what I mean.

Visually it's beautiful! Absolutely beautiful, without caveats or provisos! God I love it!

Gameplay-wise I have some reservations. A victory condition that can be satisfied by, basically, holding the centre of map will lead to a lot of quick, lopsided victories. I would, quite honestly, rather see this as a non-objective map. Or, if it must be an objectives map, go with a more complex victory condition.
