While this map isn't yet a complete working draft, I think you're heading in a positive direction. I'm looking forward to seeing this develop ;-)

I've come up with 10 colours, hopefully enough. ;)

Also, I thought maybe add the motto in;

"Plus Ultra"
-
"Further Beyond"



EDIT: Sorry for double post!

Obviously on the map could be different, but actually i think that the two last colors don't fit very well with the others.

Try to tone down them only a bit (only the last two)

I can't wait to see your draft! :D

Mmmm....I made them darker. I'm not prepared to change them just yet, I'd like to see how they work in the map.

You can modify them if you wish Danyael, though I'm not sure you'll be able to see the change if your colour change, depending on the severity of your colour blindness I guess.

alright its taking awhile....... To do this i have spent alot of time on it to make it look as close to spain as i can
Please note
things to do
crop
this will be the texture of the map
i will be adding the political borders soon
canary isl. will be inset will be place in bottom left corner and legend on lower right corner
title top right
I think routes will work best because i think its might be a shame to gray scale this one
but i'll try it out both ways

but i thought everyone can see so far

Nice! It's not what I was thinking but no matter. If you like, you could try this thing I was thinking of, basicly, make the shape of the territory (over the area) then, make the fill of the shape semi-transperent with the continental colour. Just an idea, but I'll post this up on the front page.

Hmmmm... I'm not a fan of routes (unless on Islands), but I've got to better be open minded on these things :) . So I can't wait to see the later updates :D.


Also, I'm renovating the main front page so it may be a bit bare.

Wow!

Nice graphic.... ;)

Few quick suggestions:

  • The map is 1px too wide
  • I assume that this is the large version of your map...the playable area is very compressed, cut some white border and make it larger. You'll nedd a small "playable" version.

I'm happy to see a so clear first post =D>

I'll back when the borders/names come...

Good work...

I am not sure how territory borders are going to look with the current texture, maybe lower the paint brush affect.

with is being the texture there is a few step to do before it place the border etc on but then its gray scaled for relief (so you cant see the the beauty of this one
as well i did this all with the paintbrush on artrage2 so its hard lower something that is not just an effect

if you look at the newsletter you can see a rough look at what the outcome will kinda look like but it will be a lot better
and yes 100% computer
i like artrage because the cursors flow the same style as real life
so i do my pictures there then bring in over on photoshop

Beautiful. Simply beautiful. As a piece of art, however. I truly hope you can translate this into a CC map, it looks fantastic!
