I like it, it is a good start. The ocean has to be changed though, something to differentiate it from the shoreline and land tiles.

I like it! Thanks for adding the river names, that's a nice touch. Mountain ranges would be cool too.

There is no way to change the selection hex outline? That has always bugged me...

Sorry, just noticed that you had already cleaned up the selection graphic. Wondering why you didn't use it in the example maps?

Re: mountain ranges, I guess there is only one really, but it has a number of pieces. You could also include the higher peaks and mountain passes...

On the selection hex, why do you think it doesn't actually follow the hex outline?

Nothing planned from me, I haven't heard from Frank in some time (I hope all is ok with him!).

I really like what you have here Chemkid, that's a very clean and nice look!

The great thing about Frank's games, as I mentioned on Grogheads, is that he uses single images for the map and no "tiles". Tiles are the worst to work with and always looks, well, computer-gamish. With this game (and his others), it's a cinch to make your own version of the map just how you like it given a little (or a lot in Chemkids case) of graphic art talent!

Very nice work, gives a very good 'real map' look, I like the choice of colours, the pale sea colour matches with actual maps. I will be using this as the vanilla was a bit dark. Thanks

The more I use this, the better it looks, hoping that you might be able to do the mainland.

Thank you for this work, I know that graphics should not detract from a good game, but a great looking map adds so much more to the immersion into the subject. The Italian campaign was all about terrain and a more realistic map helps a lot. I have seen comments in the forums, of people being put off by the look of the game, which is a shame because this title is well worth a look and the availability of this map option should help.

Better and better, it is the subtlety of your map mods which makes them so good. I have used different maps in other games, between winter and summer phases, so it is a nice effect.

I would vote for this option, rather than cartoon snow and rain, but perhaps more emphasis on snow in the mountains.

Can't wait to see it in the game, except see PM.

Thanks for the final map set, using your preview map in-game has been a revelation, the immersion and 'feel' of the game has improved enormously. The whole package, including hex mask and counters mod are magnificent and has lifted a veil on a great game.

It now looks as good as it plays.

Next project is to lighten (grey) and reduce the opacity of the Hexmask to match the lighter tone of the new map, have been experimenting, but will look at it more when I get back.
