Has anyone upgraded any of the components to Macao?

I've seen plenty of Windrose additions. And even switching to real Macanese coins. But that's about it.

Anyone do anything else?

There isn't much else to upgrade to be honest, short of making actual sculpted buildings for the districts.

what about replacing the Ownership Markers with wooden building tokens like the ones in Catan?

I did that for my copy:

I also upgraded the coins to yellow wooden discs. A plano to store the wood cubes is also great for setup.

Macao being one of my top 2 favorite Feld games - I decided to bling my copy out a bit..

I created a foamcore insert, along with creating foamcore windrose trays for each player. I swapped out the coins with metals ones from my Dread Pirate game. I replaced the brown player color with red, and in doing so replaced all the wooden ships so they have the same design. For each player I picked up 12 wooden houses similar to those found in Catan to use for the ownership markers - while keeping the cardboard tokens to use as punish markers. All the extra wooden bits I ordered from spielematerial.de if you are interested in doing the same..

Like others, I have upgraded the ownership markers, coins and windrose.

I also replaced the penalty markers with red glass beads.

I bought from a thrift shop a copy of Scrabble and a copy of deluxed scrabble and upgraded the wares markers.

I printed out the markers on a full sheet label, applied the jokers to the deluxe scrabble tiles and the normal ones to the normal tiles:
