That is a lot better. Also not going to remove the stamp so all is good to carry on with graphics. Makethe title part of the facing. Remove remember and go with alamo only for the map.

A couple of things that jump out right now:

1. This is more game-play, but Ceza looks like it can also attack Smith. Draw in a border so that it doesn't look like it does.
2. Along the left side, it looks like you don't have a layer positioned correctly, if so it needs to be moved to the left a few pixels.

That's it for now!

I removed the remember the part but I don't understand what you mean by making the title part of the facing. If you could elaborate that would
be awesome. I tried a few other textures in this version for the legend.

The bevel on the facade covered up some of the letters in the legend. The bottom of the bevel needs to be fixed also. I will fix that next version
if it stays.

Use the wood effect you have now but make it a lot smaller so it looks like the name above the door.

:o :lol: What do you mean. Did you mean to make (Alamo) as the same font as the (remember the) was and use the same effect. I thought you meant just have it smaller
and above the door.

Thanks swimmerdude :D

Smaller yes, above the door yes. Make the Alamo name part of the wall as if it is hanging above the door. It should look part of the façade, not on top and blocking it.

But why has everything gone green and grey?

10-4 on the Alamo name. It is a layer I was trying to make the ground look more natural. I agree it blends everything too much and it will not be in the next draft.
