Get a new avatar! That's twice now I've looked and thought you were AK Iceman. Other than that, I agree with everything you have said about the map.


My bad... How's this one I just sorta like the other one didn't realize I had it on the same site as someone else.
You don't have an income like mine, plus you've never even ridden in my amazing rocket car... Maybe if I get bored I'll bench press it for you.

Just a note: with the placement of "Boa Vista" and the river, it almost looks like that one small section of it is a completely different country. Not a major issue, just a visual one.

EDIT: Nvm. It's gone with that update up a few posts. My bad.

Hey Edbeard, can I steal your mountains and rivers textures/images for New World. I'll probably replace them with my own later, but for placeholders until I get less lazy?

EDIT: Also, I like the map as it is now.

Thanks a ton. I'm anxious to see what the more critical members of the foundry have to say when they notice this. Hopefully they ask for things you can do.

It could be better but i LOVE it

Postby Solus on Wed Jun 20, 2007 1:49 pm

I like it but I still say the colors need to be toned down a little. (It hurts my eyes a little if I stare too long) :oops:

Rather than make a jumpy path between those pink and green countries you could just stop the mountains a little bit sooner.

I think that's a 1 way path actually? (Or a Pass perhaps!)

Ah I see - the sea route... not a mountain thingy then.

BTW - your upload server is well slow (Or your image is massive!)
