1. the legends says "Special bonus for yellow territories" I thought this meant the yellow continent ( :oops: ) not the yellow terr names. This could be a common mistake made. Could you better define this?

2. your image is at the full guildline size of 630x600. Do you really need this? Would it be to much to ask you to do a little trimming work?


cheers


Just in case you missed it ;)

Ruben I always like your style it feel a little CC old Skool ;)


I actually missed this one! Thanks for pointing it out.

About the image size...what is the preferred dimension then? I wanted to use as much space as possible so as to have an easily legible map.

Edit: Can I blame t-o-m for missing this one since he spams a lot? :p (Just kidding t-o-m! Hehe.)

Gimil's referring to the massive size of your legend and the seal at the top of the map. If you moved the seal to the top left of the territories, and the legend to the bottom right, it would not make the actual map look so small.

Ruben theres no prefernce to size. Just loking to not have all maps at max dimensions. The more maps we can fit on small monitors the better :)

Dont go out your way to resize just a little trim here and there should do the trick.
What do you know about map making, bitch?

Okay I will trim it a bit.

I was asking for future reference to keep in mind when I start a new map since I always tend to go for the limit! :)

New Update: Version 12 and 12a

- I trimmed the image size down a bit. (Gimil)
- The interior borders are now all of the same shade. (RJ Beals)
- There are 2 versions of the outside borders 12 and 12a. Which one do you prefer RJ? I don't know if this is what you meant. (RJ Beals)

Coming next: Poll with different font options for the territory names. (RJ Beals)

Stick with Version 12. 12a looks worse border-wise.

I find the background very plain and boring to look at. I think you should change it by adding a slight texture. I hate very busy backgrounds, but this one is so plain it's practically crying for attention. So, I'd change it slightly, and certainly don't add anything fancy.

Okay I have added some textures to the background.

Check versions 1.12c and 1.12d on page 1 and let me know which one you prefer.

1.12d looks better for the map. 1.12c could confuse the every living crap out of others with the mosaic look.
