colors for low zoomlevels

I like to suggest the following:
How about rendering different countries with different colours at zoomlevel 1 to 4? A bit like this:

Just a suggestion trying to make those low zoomlevels a bit more interesting…

interesting, but I think we should remove all borders from the map… It’s a international street mapping project, we don’t care about borders… :wink: (hmm)

But we do care about nice looking maps… We can let the colours fade away through the higher zoomlevels by adjusting the saturation of the colour. Zoomlevel 1: saturation 70; zoomlevel 2: saturation 60; zoomlevel 3: saturation 50; zoomlevel 4: saturation 40 (for example)
