I don't want to be a bother, but is it possible that you could come up with a different color for PetesPlace or Wonderful Allied Nations of Greeseille? They're so close I can barely tell them apart, and it could make a difference soon. Perhaps if you gave PetesPlace a more greenish tint?

I was waiting for this to come up. I don't disagree, but the problem is as soon as I add some green there are two other green nations that it gets close to. Let's get some eliminations and I'll consider reusing some colors. I had a really hard time coming up with 17 colors that I can even tell apart.

How about a nice bright red? That'd be unique.

Or stripes.
I'm just a nob that played Diplomacy as a kid. Don't mind me. No, I don't have 17 centers. Don't look at me like that.

It's so weird...I can easily tell the difference between me and Woolgie on mobile, but I have trouble with Malevolence and pkjon. Then I get on my laptop, and my color looks IDENTICAL (literally no difference) to Woolgie, but the purples are much more distinct.

I'm with Epic. Someone should just sacrifice himself so I can tell what my territory looks like more easily :mrgreen: :roll: :twisted:

Yeah, I don't blame you, I'm sure it's pretty difficult. Seventeen colors is daunting enough, imagine if we'd had 34. I suppose you could do patterns if you wanted, but that's your call. I imagine it would make the map a lot more difficult. For a temporary fix, you could try swapping one out with StP's colors, as they are not likely to come into contact soon.

Also, why do I no longer have a build?

Same here....when I'm on my kindle, it is easy enough to tell who is who, but on the laptop, its a bit confusing.

So, I think polka dots are the way to go. :mrgreen:
