Southeast: +4
North Central: +4 or +5
Northeast: +4 or +5

Any chance on changing the color scheme? All the greens are reminiscent of the England map.

The game play passed the men in blue once already. Why change it? Should also add wait till the impassables are there again

nice background - but I would maybe stop the river at the edge of london. It looks strange flowing over the background like that.

Sorry Rj... your advice is usually solid but at this point I have to disagree... Stopping the river at the edge of London would look odd and abrupt IMO.

What do others think?

I think the exact opposite, i think you should extend the left side so it goes to the edge of the map.

Really? Here's an example. It's still a floating city, but doesn't look as bad with the extended river.

It looks better in that example... but on my map the river stops in richmond. So it would look odd, as it would make the river kind of start and end from nowhere...

I think Telvannias suggestion has merit, extending the river to flow through the whole map... it would lessen the impression that the city is "floating in vacuum". Also to that effect, I could add in the outside counties with washed out lines & text...
