Work has started on this one again, finishing land plots, adding large black trees atop buggy stops etc. New version should be finished in a couple of days. :)

That's a nice font, and the grounds look fine. So, are you not adding texture to the Accusers, Accused, Judges, or Reverends, just the Landowners?

I've always thought that the text on the legend, or mapboard areas, would look much better with some sort of outline stroke.

Yes...I am being patient. But do you remember you reminded me to remind you to remember to do them if you didn't remember to do them? ;)

Re: Salem's Switch [16.12.11] V23-P21 GFX Eyes/Fonts

Postby cairnswk on Fri Dec 16, 2011 4:14 am

Version 23
1. Eyes have been fixed, not mine - I didn't have the skill to use my photos and adapt the same as the originals, so these will have to suffice.
2. The map fonts have been highlighted with black backing.

I find the black backing on the fonts too strong, especially under the names of the Accusers. I much prefer any of the looks on Version 22, where the backing was lighter (see Ann Putnam Jr) or where there was no backing at all (Ezekial Cheever, William Hobbs). Granted, with white text, it may be better with a backing than without (compare Ann Putnam Jr with Edward Putnam), but really, the text without the backing works well enough, and you could use a dark text for the Accusers (Johnathon Putnam).

ender516, i did the whole lot in response to above from Andy, I have not done the legend areas.
Perhaps those accusers only need the backing text lightened as you say, i'll see.
I'd prefer to have some consistency with the front text being all white, so the background will have to be manipulated. :)
