Well I think the most important thing is that when the army is over the actual circle, it is NOT centered. And, you can't disagree with that.

I'm not sure why it is doing that, but I'm sure someone with more knowledge can help you figure it out.

I can tell you that this is an important issue for quenching. It's not something that will be shrugged off.

edit:
you could just take the circles from widowmakers' thread

In the blown up circles you posted, I count 22 pixels across in the first one and 23 in the second. So make the first one 21 and the second will appear 22?

The easy way to center your army circles.

First run your XML test to gain your image with army numbers and copy this image on top of the PSD file of you map in photoshop. Ensuring that the image is the same size and centered properly on the page.

Image

Next copy Widowmakers army number circles and paste it into a new layer.

Image

(Once copied the transparent background may become black, simply take the magic eraser tool and click on the black area once)

Image

Now take Widowmakers circles layer and set the transparency to around 50% and line it up with your 1st army number on the image. Then copy and past the circles until all the numbers are done. (Make sure you set the opacity back to 100%)

Image

Now ensure all the circles are merged into a single layer and add a color overlay.

LAYER>LAYER STYLE>COLOR OVERLAY.

This can be whatever color you desire and will ensure that all circles are the same. You can also play around with the opacity until you get the desired look of your army circles.

Image

Once you are happy wih your army circles and there in a single layer simply delete the flattened map image with the army circles on it.

There now you have perfectly centered army circles without the fuss of going through an XML file to tweek coordinates by 1-2px.



Thank,
gimil.

Its nothing to do with te shadow, the circles are 1px to big.

With that tutorial, you will have 22px circles centered.

this is irritating..i USED a size 22 brush to make them..
you can see that in my screen shot..
seems like nobody gets that

i went and redid them for the third time..with the plain white from the other thread

i have them all on separate layers, but together in a group.. how do i get them all to a single layer?

incase someone feels the urge to get the magnifying glass out...:lol:

to get them to a single layer highlight all the layers and right click merge layers.

then you can do some cheeky layer styles on te go.

This keeps looking better and better the longer we don't quench it, maybe we should let you stew longer. :wink:

Just kidding. You'll probably be a part of the next group if nothing comes up.

I think I agree with coleman. We gotta start a petition to never have this quenched.

Let me begin by apologizing for not having placed input earlier... but, as anyone who frequents the Foundry knows, I, too, have been preoccupied with defending, changing, redrafting, etc. my own map...

I like this board and think this will be a fun map to play.
The icons, particularly the Native American ones, add to the feel and give insight into the cultural history of the area. -Nice touch!

Looking forward to seeing this quenched and, from the looks of things, it would appear that both of our maps may be quenched in the next batch!

Good work! -Elijah

Great work ,and congrats for sticking with it! The process can be (very) painful, but in this case, I think we can all agree the result was well worth it - a quality map. Good job.
