What is exactly unclear? Not had a problem myself.


I think (hope) that with unclear he means un-common. The fact we didn't use colors on the land for continents...because a part for that I don't understand how a black line could be unclear... :? Oh maybe the inner bridges...i think I'll leave bridges only for connections between different territories, for internal connections I'll do something like this:

Look at page 5, that version is the possible new small, is it good in that size for you?


Yup bud, the smaller version in page 5 is pretty nice looking...
That is what i exactly desire to see to be the final size bud =D>

The new images are in the OP, for now I've left the bridges....the option I've proposed above looks terrible on the map...I have to think a bit about it and find something that really works. ;)
Btw, files sent to Lack!

Great job!! Apart from the fonts not being the same, the bridges are the only issue I have left.

Debatable...I think the title is ok in the current position


tnb80...i'd still like to see this one happen...the title needs to move left by the same margin that is at the top.

Are people happier with this small version? I am very happy with the small version. Nice and compact.
However, i checked out the size of the large map also...does it really need to be that big? :)

Maybe the old small map could become the new large map :-s

I won't change the size of the large....I've given something to those who have a small screen, please let also the people with a big monitor can have their version! ;)

I think this decision is fine.

Also, for me, it's not about screen size. People (natty, DiM, tnb80, etc.) have commented that it's about a small screen. Maybe that's the case for some, but for me it's because I want a small map.
