The grayed out city map is a GTK2 feature: When a governor is active it is not possible to click on the city map, therefore the bitmap is shown as "disabled" = grayed out.

This could be fixed by a new feature: Sometimes it makes sense to "pulse" a governor, i.e., switch it off and immediately on again to force a new evaluation. Clicking on the city map could have this effect (switch governor off and on again.) As a side-effect the city map would be never disabled and never grayed out.

Mini-maps on the city overview are (always) shown in landscape format (width > height), this results in unused (black background) areas at the left and right sides of the city overview mini-map.

In managed cities the mini-map is greyed out, and the tiles are hard to see for some users. It would be better to use a grey background with normally visible tiles to indicate an enabled governor.

In managed cities clicking on tiles shown in the mini-map has no effect, the governor has to be disabled before. It would be better to always allow manual micro-management by clicking on tiles, just disable the governor switching back to a black mini-map background.
