At a close look, I thought "How does Andy have any game play value on the map?" Then it was like, oh the monkey is just for decoration! :lol:

Anyhow, I think that Pusat probably is a tad undervalued, considering that it is in the center of the map for all intensive purposes. Plus all but one territory borders another bonus. It could probably be increased to +7, maybe +8.

Where you have "Darker territories ..." Reword it to read " Like a true Classic City, Jakarta has many expats living there - darker territories - These ..." I think this makes it a little more clearer as to where the expats are. I'll get the other CA's to take a look at this, and maybe we can get this stamped soon!

As isaiah said, Pusat would do much better as a +8. Also, I believe Timur should be upped to +5, as it's not much different from Selatan, which is of equal value.

I'm trying to hard to like this map, but just something about the mish-mash of styles and colors must be out of my taste, so I'm afraid I can't be of much help in the development.

Best of luck,

Re: [VACATION valid until June 2012] Jakarta [15/1] New styl

After all the comments about the style not having a focus, I got to play around a bit and remembering a painting my father has, tried to emulate that. If it does not work, then back it can go till I find more of a focus.

Title needs to be worked over to bring it into line with the rest of the image but thought I would see if the community liked this approach. ;)

Re: Classic Cities Jakarta [15/1] New style - Does it work?

You're going to need a better texture than GIMP's default "apply canvas" filter.

I know, this was just a quick mock up, to see if it all fitted and did it work. I am working on the canvas texture at the moment but still not right. It might be a better idea to go down the linen route as that is a finer thread.

Hm... your texture is not showing well on the bright areas which leads me to believe you're using soft light mode for it?

I usually solve the issue by duplicating the texture layer and setting the other copy on grain merge, then adjusting the opacities of both layers until a good balance is found.

Also, the background image doesn't look like something that's painted. You should look into getting some advanced filters if you want to pull of the kind of effect you're going for... G'MIC is something I can recommend for the task.

Re: Classic Cities Jakarta [15/1] Bridges / Rivers placement

Postby koontz1973 on Sun Jan 15, 2012 9:28 am

Last update for today on the graphics side.

Lets try and get GP sorted as it has changed completely. Out are all gimics and now just a normal classic GP so this should be nice and easy to get right.
Bridges - placement thoughts?
Rivers, these can be longer or shorter so ideas on them also.
Bonus numbers - lets leave these till the above it finalised.
Do I really need to put the bridges and rivers into a legend?
