Here is the first test of the updated look for the 2018 Edition. You can download the full resolution file here:
The goal here is to try and make the text, if possible, both easier to read, easier on the eye and work better with the tweaked terrain. Major labels outlines have been thinned out or removed and they have been paired with an outer glow that soften its surroundings.
The terrain is a work in progress with more to edit on oceans and coastlines in particular. Mountains also need a bit of touch up to look a bit more believable.
Next style test I will try and improve roads, borders and the settlements and other small labels.
So what do you think?
