I'm not going to do anything else with the map since it'd be a waste of my time without a graphic-artist to help. There's no one that has volunteered to do GIMP or such on it, and it can't move to the next stage without that.

Thanks for the support, though.

Or you could learn to use GIMP yourself. I've written a few tutorials that might help you get started with GIMP.

Viccy Baby, love what you've done with the place...

Looks good. Since your cultural divisions mimic the geology so much perhaps using this map as an assist would be nice.

All the best on this project.

Too bad. I was sort of curious to what you create.

I did find a CC player proficient with photoshop. He and I are working on the map currently.

Never fear—something is in the works!

Cool....hey guys, we definitely need some XML help.

We're about ready to post the re-done graphics and, I'm certain, at that point, the map will be moved out of the Melting Pot to the draft stage (that's how it works, right Natty Dread or the nobodies or whomever)?

Any takers on helping with the XML? The map is (roughly) the same as that hand-drawn, but computer-done now on photoshop. Again, will be posted very soon.

Don't worry about xml at this point. Seriously, just forget it until you've at least got the gameplay stamp.

I know, I know. But I'm starting now because it took weeks just to find a designer. I'm assuming it will take weeks for XML guys, too, so I'm asking now for guys to review the previously posted design and start giving it thought.

You have plenty of time before you need to worry about xml. And no, it's no problem at all to find someone to do it, when you have a ready map image that has at least a couple of stamps to it.

Seriously. Just forget the xml for now.

Hi Vic-

I think this is really cool, good concept, and a lot of flavor. The US South isn't really represented on CC and I think this is a great, individual idea. I'd play it. Good luck with it.

I do have an IS account. I think it's VicFontaine, still. Or Vicfontaine80 or something like that.
