[R] transparency using plot+points with sp classes

Hi guys,
Thansk for the help with the transparency.

I've made some modifications to my code , added rgb in colour to play
with the transparency and included also a north arrow. I was trying to
make the code look better, however i am facing another problem, once I
use symbols with a bg colour. Somehow once I plot the map I loose the
bg colour info and he gives me only the filled triangle border colour:

arrow <- list("SpatialPolygonsRescale", layout.north.arrow(type=1),
offset = c(5,10), scale = 2,col="black")

list1=list("sp.points",observations2000,pch=21,col = rgb(red = 0,
green = 0, blue = 1, alpha = 0.1))



spplot(polygon_area,"NAME",col="black",col.regions=FALSE, colorkey=FALSE,


       scales=list(draw=TRUE),xlab="Longitude",ylab="Latitude", main="Map" )
