    This is awesome...spectacular key/legend. The only thing (IMO) that it needs is smaller font size on country names...they're quite big, dark, and dominating. I'd make the font size smaller and space out the leading between letters so as to fill the same amount of space horizontally. Really nice job.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    I just need to translate both of them, at the final job it will be done.

    I know. I've noticed it today, I'll think about it.

    Nope, they'll be warped.

    I need to argue with that. International railway-links are very common and Europe is full of them - here there is an example - http://www.mapki.org/mapa%20kolejowa.jpg

    I now. I promise that at the final work everything will be done clearly.

    Thank's for comments.

    I entirely agree with the railways! I come from the UK and even it has rail links to the continent even with sea in the way. I was meaning that there were no railways leading to the SW.

    I'm glad most of the comments were things you were going to do anyway. Glad to see this coming along, and I look forward to the final version. I'd suggest bumping up the opacity of some of the heraldry in the regions as they are a little subtle at the moment, but otherwise I have no crits - this is great!

    Sorry, it was a little misunderstanding. ; )

    Railways are not leading to the SW, because those terrains are on the Dark Side of the the Planet (I've mentioned about it at the first post) - Those lands are totally cut off from the Light Side. I know, that currently nothing indicates that, but all those things with 'the Border', and the Dark Side I've left at the end.

    I understand that there is a dark side. I'd just expected there to be some old tracks leading there from before the time when the world stopped. I can entirely understand if that were not the case.

    Ok, I followed Your previous opinions, and I changed some part of those annoying bugs.

    I hope, that now it looks better, still feel free to comment.

    This is really quite good Qbista - if I didn't say so earlier it looks like it came right out of a old text book or something similar.

    Great work. This is a beautiful map with a very authentic feel. I think you'll do well with this.
