Guys, this is going to be an awesome map and sorry for not saying anything earlier, but maybe if the mountains are on a different layer you can tweak that layer's colour levels a little so that the mountains look less like poo.
Ok, i'm done. And its about time. i need to learn now. This is my submission to Lack. Thanks to all of you for your input and making this map rock. Hopefully I'll find some time this summer to come up with another.
