    Good quality as always. Not a big fan of the (Gothic?) font. It's a bit on the "heavy" side.

    Cool stuff, I think the only thing I would change would be to add a glow/stroke on the font (color version) so that it doesn't blend into the outlines.

    I gotta go with Gandwarf on the font...black letter fonts are great for titles, tattoos, and diplomas but not for labeling on color maps. Looks ok on the black and white, though.

    Thanks for the hint at the font. I put an outer glow on the text.

    It's really good.

    One thing I would change (though it's most likely just a matter of different tastes) is the lines along the coasts (the three lines surrounding the coast). They are a bit too distracting to me: I'd make them closer together, and add a couple more lines, then diminish their alpha so they're more like shades of darker blue on the ocean, instead of solid black lines.

    But, nonetheless, it's still a very nice map.
