Is it just me or does the army spot on Ka-khem look really off?

In addition to A-bt, Khent-abt, Sopdu.

Perhaps a slight touch up, cairnswk?

Andy, it seems the file i had on my computer was the correct file, but i didn't upload it to the ripway staoreage site for lack attack to take.
I have already uploaded the new file, and have forwarded it to lack for amendment. :)

Yeah I wouldn't expect a change. The sea route up the top tricked me too hehe. I really like this map, it's very very strategic. Got a doubles game going on it at the moment. It's very very nice to play on :mrgreen:

Just played a few games. Like it, in general, BUT could you somehow change that line from Am Khent so it does not look so much like a land connection. I know you say specifically that the boats connect across the water, but it is still confusing.

correct typo on Egypt-Lower

Postby stahrgazer on Fri Jun 25, 2010 5:42 am

Hi, folks.

I was asked to post this in foundry thread...

During work on the strategy guide for cairnswk's Egypt: Lower, we realized that the map has a typo. The word dow for the boats to cross the Nile, should be dhow.

Any chance of that minor correction? (If I knew the font cairnswk used, I could probably do it fairly quickly.)

Please let me or Master Fenrir know if this correction is feasible.

Thanks

Well, I think I figured out the font, so here are two images that have the right spelling for Dhow, if anyone in the foundry wants to read this and grab the images.

I used Fireworks CS3.
Applied a Gaussian Blur at 0.5
then an inner bevel - sloped - raised to 8 points.
Hope that helps.
