Its not bad, what you can do to make the details more clear is to size it up some, like 800x800, then the text in the legen will look better.

Im looking 4ward to see whats next.

keep it up ;)

well, we got a solid draft and I think the theme is pretty solid and worthy of being made.

This is a good theme, Oneyed - hope it gets somewhere.

Also, I'd consider using háčky and čárky, or whatever you call them in Slovakia in your territory names. If you check out Iceland and Denmakr maps, they also use the ∂, ø, ö etc. symbols.

Its not complicated, people dont need to know how its spoken or spelled, it will be integrated in the map and conected from the territory to the XML part behind the map,

Il say go for it, it will be more original this way and suit the theme.

Re: Gentle Revolution - updated version

Postby natty dread on Fri Feb 03, 2012 8:49 am

Ok, your large version kinda looks like you just took the small version and resized it, then made some quick fixes...

Herein lies the problem - when you resize bitmaps up from smaller to larger it makes them blurry and unfocuses, it loses detail. This is because there are more pixels in a larger image, ie. there's more information. The resizing algorithm tries to guess the missing information to fill in the blanks but those algorithms are way from perfect.

What you should do is redo the large image from scratch, do all the icons for the large version, then work on the large version only for now, at least until you've received the gameplay stamp - then you can create the small version from the large.

It'll be hell for team games, though. =) "Ok, take, uh, what's that one called?" I'm so glad we don't use Chinese characters for the China maps. =) Still, the characters that you've used here should be fine. =)

Still, very interesting so far! I'm not wild about the gas stations, though. Could you replace them with some other method of transportation? Buses, maybe, or cars? Train depots?
