?? I really have no idea though.


1. i thought zeak already made a map? (Archipelago)
2. i've already posted that i didn't make one
3. could be a good guess
4. i think kap can do better than that.... his swiss map looks pretty damn good
5. gim made feudal right?

i think itd be pretty damn hard to guess who the amateurs are, especially since someone might have come out of the woodwork, i'm thinking guys like blacky44? drake259? um... (after some research) rsacheli? a.sub? i don't even know if any of them are amateurs, but the possibilites are endless

I think all the entries show promise. I'm working on feedback that I started while at work, and now have to go and buy some Christmas-light bulbs... my feedback will come soon!

no, mjinga made archipelago if i remember correctly


[off-topic]

Gl getting christmas lights ben :)


my family just buys a couple boxes each year and then keeps them for next year..... man, so many christmas lights to put up now..... eh better get to it someday, we only have a handful up, and like 3-10 crates left..... #-o

[/off-topic]

edit: since people are guessing who did what, im gonna throw my guesses out there :D


3: e_i_π, just because its very thorough and different, it seems like something he would do. (heh, just realized that the army circle-things are to small for double digits)

5: Lgoa, idk why but i think its his

4: its so well done i have to say Kap, that and it just seems so like him to do something like this

2: Zeak. Seems like something zeak would do for a map, after hanging around archipelago so long. The colors are very similar to it in my opinion.

1: I have my suspicions for this one, but not really anything to confirm my suspicions.... for now though im just gonna guess Gilligan, just cause it seems like something he would do... idk why it seems like that.


lol mostly Im guessing on how people would do it, and what i come up with is close to these entries. 5 im really just guessing at, as it seems like something lgoa would do, and it seems pretty simple, but with nice effex

Okay I've been looking at these too much and I decided if 3 get's legible and the graphics get clearer, I dunno...it just would look so good. I like the originality of it....ah I can't make up my mind. So the word is they get a revision before the end of the vote, or after? I don't understand.

i have never even seen you in the foundry... maybe i'm not looking hard enough, but that came out of nowhere for me.

that is, unless you didn't actually make one and you're messing with us

I'm torn between 2 and 5. :?

*#3 is interesting, yes, but the textures and colors are an eye sore. 1 and 4 aren't anything special either.

Here's how I broke it down:

1) Very realistic, but I didn't like how there was no name next to the territories, just a letter and a number, plus there's no pizzaz.

2) This was my fave at first because it looked like a central america map

3) That is until I saw this one. I really liked it because it's incredibly unique and just looks great, but the problem is that the territory names are hard to read for me.

4) Looks good, clean and crisp, but it's basically the same as the first one.

5) It was between this one, 3 and 2 that I really struggled on, they all looked great.

My decision: I voted for 3 even though it definitely needs work. It shows a great deal of promise, however, and I think that the intent of the designer was to tweak it a bit before submitting it for the final map. (For example some of the colors are a bit off) Other than a few graphics issues, it looks incredible.
So anywho, that's my opinion.

3 is the best, imo. While the eye-hurt-ness could be turned down, it looks good, and is definitely the most original. We want maps that stand out from other maps, that people will remember.

4, while my second pick, is just too... basic. Standard. As in: while it looks really nice, you could use the same graphics style for a map of any map, and it would fit the theme just as well.

Great competition! I would argue that this one is better quailty than the Centerscape one ;)

Some thoughts:

1. To be honest I don't really see anything in it. Nothing I can really say about it.

2. Very bright and vibrant. Has a similar look to madagascar, which I love. I think the colours could use some playing around with to get some that fall more into place. Not a big fan of the compass and title thou, they don't feel like they fit to me. The inland lakes are a different colour to the sea, which I don't really like. Overall, I think with some more work this one could clean up nicely.

3. The only thing I can say that brings this entry down is the canvas style. Everything else from its colouring to the layout work nicley together.

4. Probably my personal favourite at the moment. Everything is neat, tidy and fits together. My only concerns is that some of the glows on the map may be a little bright, mainly El Salvador and Belize. Very nice entry and its easy to see that this character could become a pro if they stick around.

5. Not 100% sure what to think of this one. Compared to other entries this one seems plain and a little clumpsy. The title and the compass look like they are after thoughts as tyhey don't sit very well on the map in my opinion.

4 is probably my favourite, but I also like 3 and have voted for it because I would like to see if the potential for this one I see is really there (Which I think it is).

Good luck to everyone.
What do you know about map making, bitch?

entry 4 is totally kiking ass with the great graphics. also using icons to get around the long water route was genius. didnt like how there were 2 huge water routes on the other maps.

I voted #2 because the brighter colors feel more tropically to me. I was strongly considering #3, but it appears that it would be too cramped in the small version.

I chose between 2 and 5, with 5 being my choice. In the end, I preferred the colors and larger text size in 5. Also, I don't like the use of icons for the sea routes in 4, I much prefer the lines.
