It's the first thing I'm gonna whinge about when RJ wins. I've only not been saying anything because it's useless to try and fix them all in the voting rounds.
Actually, we have no control over the geography. The rules of the competition were that the map was to stay true to marvaddin's original, which has long been known for it's, um, geographic anomalies.

right, but my biggest question about the geography of this map has always been the location of impassables... they aren't based on anything that actually exists.
Changing territory borders would change the way the map plays - you can tweak them, but you can't add/eliminate attack routes.
Anyway, the map plays pretty well, so why would we want to mess with those things?

I just didnt reply earlier because Im in a trip, meeting my girlfriend (Brazilian HOT woman, like Patroclus would say, lolololol). Im even having some problems to connect to the net here where I am. But, lets talk about whats important.
Im very impressed, mostly by entries A and B. Congratz to you all. (And to me, I got a vote, lol!)
In fact, I would vote to A, but I didnt do it because I dont want to show acceptance to some things about this one. RJ, like I said before, I intend to use the veto "super"-powers to the tilt, and this because a simple reason: Im not minimally convinced its necessary. It doesnt change too much the map proportions like it did to Portugal and Italy (and even doing that, its not something people from a country would love; I saw some of the reactions in the Portuguese forum, and I agree to them). See, you can decrease or remove the square around the map, put the image borders nearer to the map, decrease even the map a bit, because in most territories we have free space. Im sure you can do it without the tilt.
About the colours in the title, and the lack of national symbol, well, if your map really wins, we can discuss it properly. Like someone said, we have now 2 legends. I love the minimap, but I know we need have the continent names. How about putting them in the minimap, having some free space to the flag? Well, eliminating the tilt we will anyway have some free space in the bottom right corner. And the title, well, I can live with that, but before we can see what are the options having green and yellow only, or with blue. If this one is really the best... well, we will see.
A little suggestion: although I like the background, Brazil is not a big jungle like some people think. We have cities with +10M people, factories, etc. What you think about having the jungle in one side of the background (W side, preferently) and other things (like even the ocean) in the other?
Beyond that, some mispelled names, and the letters "p" and "g" being a bit alike, I loved the map! Congratulations!
Oak, your map is also great, it really remembers a book. Main problems: some of the side notes have wrong info (like Rio having 1 million people, lol, its more like 5-10 millions) that we would need to correct, and the northeast colour in the map doesnt meet the colour in the legend. And what do you mean by geographic anomalies? lol
Like someone said, entry C was better before the changes. Very good, but my last option in this poll. Congrats anyway, WM.
Thats it for now. I will probably be at home next sunday or monday. Then I can be more helpfull to the discussion if needed.

Some maps with different perspectives put a whole new twist on the game.

Credit goes to Ruben Cesar for finding that. He linked it to me through skype a few months ago. But yes, I also like the style the map is drawn in. And the angle gives it a totally unique feel.oaktown wrote:I love that Europe map you found rj...
