@ yeti,
You have zero talent when it comes to art. You have never produced the graphics for a map, so maybe you should stick to code writing. :lol:

@ mibi,
Well I don't see anything from you. You may know photoshop better than I, but you will never be a very good artist. You just don't have the talent. It is not something that can be easily learned. I see you acting like some sort of master around here. You have a few quenches under your belt. I will give you that, but your maps are second rate when it comes to the art. They all have one thing in common, they look like an 8 year old made them. Very amateurish, which matches your banty rooster strut, of an attitude.

Tearing others down does NOT make you higher. It only shows your own insecurities. ;)

calm down, you lost, some people don't like our map, that doesn't mean it is bad or you are bad, it jut means it is not good enough in the eyes of most people.

Just because I don't make maps doesn't mean I can't see...

As stated - you lost... probably because you didn't understand that people like to be able to play games without getting headaches...

I wasn't "tearing you down" - I don't do that - I was giving you constructive criticism - your version was hideous... the other map won by default.

Oh yeah - and for the record... I was on the voting panel - unlucky.

Back to the subject at hand. Are you going to do anything about the fuzziness of the map currently in play? It really does look bad. I'm sure the version that was not crappified by crapbucket would look much better, so can we get it re-uploaded?

Host the image as a png, it is a lossless format so the host service can not mess with it. This way the only quality loss will be when lack converts the image to jpg.

Just to point out - I wasn't derailing - I was discussing the merits of the two entrants - By pointing out how shit one of them was.

I don't know if you guys care, but on the map that won, instead of Cypress Mountain, it reads Cyprus Mountain.
