no probs can't wait to see it

For the buttons should it be something simple.. IE no overlay and when you scroll over the button a word appears telling you what it is?

Coat of arms (majors only I guess?). I've selected newer ones (1882 etc and onward) over older ones mostly because of copyright reasons.

Austria
OR
Austria-Hungary

United Kingdom
France (1898 and onward)
Prussia (attribute David Liuzzo!!)
Russia (1883 and onward)
Ottoman Empire (1882 and onward)

Italy (attribute 'Flanker'!!)

Each nation now internally has a color for the political maps. Please go to the original game and make a screen shot and get the color of each nation (preferablly as hex string (ffffff = white) or as r,g,b integer values) and print them here. That would save me some time. :love:

Here it is (based on 1822 scenario). I find the colours a bit bland, perhaps we should tweak it at a later stage to have a *somewhat* more colourful map (like this historical map of 1911)!

Code: Select all

Great Britain		254 249 68		FCF944
Netherlands		184 131 99		B88363
France			17 104 186		1168BA
Sardinia/Italy		142 167 80		8EA750
Switzerland		207 166 107		CFA66B
Southern Germany	212 185 160		D4B9A0
Prussia			245 167 97		F5A761
Northern Germany	163 110 69		A36E45
Denmark		161 127 124		A17F7C
Portugal		128 128 128		808080
Spain			160 160 164		A0A0A4
Catalonia (if we use it)	192 192 192		C0C0C0
Southern Italy/Sicily	200 195 165		C8C3A5
Austria(-Hungary)	244 121 126		F4797E
Poland			252 244 190		FCF4BE
Sweden		235 190 186		EBBEBA
Russia			111 177 210		6FB1D2
Greece			179 143 140		B38F8C
Serbia			206 162 159		CEA29F
Ottomans		170 148 214		AA94D6
Morocco		229 225 219		E5E1DB
Tunisia/North Africa	221 216 181		DDD8B5
Egypt			246 232 170		F6E8AA

How about something like this?

UK = pink which is always good on maps :mrgreen: there's the German grey (Prussian blue would be a bit too similar to France). Holland's orange, etc.

Just a bit of nitpicking here but can Austria own the stretch of land in between Sardinia-Piedmont and the Papal States, preferrably with the land taken out on the papal side...... I can see how this could however ruin balance as Sardina Piedmont will have no where really to expand via land but they do have Switzerland to the north (I don't care what you people say switzerland is awesome and should always be invaded) however it does force the player of sardina-piedmont to either ally with another powerful country to gain land or build up its navy to conquer the rest of italy via the sea and in the process create a pretty sufficient naval defense force in the meditteranean

As a reward, here a glimpse of the never to be seen before political view of the map with your colors. I know it's just plain pixel art, but we can always improve :D . And of course we can and should change the colors. I like the light blue of Russia and the dark blue of France though.

Do you mean in my map? That was just a quick draw to help with choosing new colours :)

Awesome, looks just like Imp1 :mrgreen: yeah, colour wise it's mostly the minor powers who've got boring colours!
