I'm excited to see this map finished. It might become part of my map rotation.

Do these changes still need made, or not? I mentioned them back on page 2, I'm not sure if they were just overlooked or meant to stay the way they are.

Name fixes:

Avalon Penincula -> Avalon Peninsula
Grand Falls Winsor -> Grand Falls Windsor (GF-Windsor, on original map)

It looks like the d made it onto the images in the first post, but "Peninsula" still needs a fix. I'd check the XML, but ripway is blocked here at work.

Those look good. You should update the first post with those images.

It seems to me you are ready for the official XML check, but I don't recall the protocol. Do you submit when you feel ready, or do you wait for the Final Forge moderator(s) to invite you to do so?

All looks well to me, pending XML approval, I think it's beta time :)

Beautiful Tisha.

I remember when this map first came around. It is nice to see someone actually take it and get it to a point where it is ready to play.

Well done.
What do you know about map making, bitch?

just a few notes on spelling and punctuation for both the images and the xml.

although Saint is often abbreviated in english-language place names, Saint John is always written in full to help to distinguish it from the newfoundland city of St John's.

http://www.saintjohn.ca/en/home/default.aspx

PEI is conventionally spelled without dots. the same rule is commonly used for all canadian province abbreviations.

http://www.gov.pe.ca/

the du in the title, Golfe du Saint-Laurent, ought to be in lower case only. it means of the, which is usually capitalised in neither english nor french. similarly with Est du Québec and Sud du Québec.

http://www.glf.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/f0006090

the above apart, u've done a splendid job with the graphics!

a little late on those, but alright.

lowercase Du in the title doesn't look as great. :(

if the title looks a bit lopsided with a lower-case du, then keep the upper-case D in the title. because of its visual function, the title is one place where the artist always has some extra latitude.

The map looks great, the only thing I'd like to suggest is to find a way to increase readability of few names. To be precise Anticosti, Bas St. Laurent, St. john and Grand Falls Windsor.

[edit] Also Chaudière looks weird on both versions, no way to have all the text on a single line?

I've travelled most of it. I want to see if the scenery is as good as the real thing.

Bring out the beta please.

On the large version, Grand Falls Windsor looks a little crooked. Can't wait! (:
