Woo, I really like this version. Give me a sec to find something to criticize...

...

...Okay, got something! The minimap looks kind of plain right now compared to the significant bevel used on the rest of the map. So, I'd either add a bit of bevel to that, or decrease the bevel on the surrounding countries, signature/credits, and left half of the image (the map part). Or better yet, do both.

Other minor things that you may or may not agree with, but that are pretty insignificant:
Maybe get a fancier-looking font for the text that says "Map Legend"?
Maybe flip the position of the Minimap and the signature/credits?
Maybe darken the background color on the right half of the image a tiny bit?

I think that's about all I can think of...great job!

  • does it really need the "note: luxem. city starts as neutral" - wouldnt people notice that anyway, and its not a big thing that you have to know
  • from a 1st glance i think that the boardering countries are terits
  • im finding it a lil hard to destingwish (aweful at spelling :( ) between luxem. city and the other silver one
  • the mini-map texture look nothing like the acctaul map textures
  • it looks cold and boring and un-interesting, maybe try something to make it warmer/more inviting?

[*] You were the one asking what Luxembourg City was. I decided to make things clear. I don't think it does any harm.
[*]You wanted the bordering countries. If you think France, Germany and Belgium are part of Luxembourg you need to learn some geography mate! :p
[*]That's the name of the country and city. What can I do? Live with it. :)
[*]Does it really matter for gameplay?
[*]It's a matter of different tastes. That's the theme I want to give to the map. I like the colours and other people seem to like them as well. Of course it's impossible to please everyone!

I'll be evaluating these options in the next update.

Thanks for your feedback!

Wow - now thats an update. Great work on your map. The bevel looks great and whatever filter you wanted to remove, I'm glad you didn't. The blue colors work well also. I would suggest to work on your map title and the right hand legend side all together. Looks like a lot of blank space that could be dressed up a bit. Can't wait to play this one - I favor this over over the San Marino map (sorry)...

Hi RJ.

Yes I combined two filters together and managed to get the desired effect. Hehe I love the colour scheme of this map as well, more than San Marino.

I'll see what I can do about the right hand side. Thanks.

Looking promising Ruben (as is your San Marino map), stick with it.

As an aside - are you making a series - 'Maps of Small Places' ? ;) :)
Malta, San Marino, Luxembourg.
Let me guess, you're next map's gonna be Andorra? :)

i think the bevel on the boarder of the country gives it a cosyness and shows that its small, which is good, but i really really hate the texture on the mini-map!!
is it changing?? [-o<
also i dont think that since theres a lot of bevel on the actual map, i dont think it goes with the mini-map with is very 2D

I'll be waiting for Gimil to pass the idea before making any further updates.

I am happy with the way the map looks right now.

Can you just stop spamming this thread please?

I haven't got any real feedback since RJ's post a page and a half ago!

Tom I appreciate your interest but if you don't have anything useful to post just refrain from doing it please. Thanks.
