cool. you really don't need high res brushes for 72dpi work. espeically with the burn tool where you should be able to see the brush work at all. leep the opacity low on those brushes, sub 5%, ya heard.

XML Link: http://h1.ripway.com/pepperonibread/Germany.xml

Changes:
-Just one: Added some significant grunge effects to the image. I think it turned out really well, though I suppose it is often personal preference when considering how "clean" a map should be. Comments are encouraged as always, actually more than usual because I wanna get this going despite my slowness in updating.

To do:
-Fix 88's, if any are off-center or misplaced.
-Comments?

This looks truly wonderful... the grunge adds some feeling to the map, and gives it a certain je ne c'est quoi!

My final nit-pick, is a request to switch the dark/light red, so that the darker red is on the bigger region, which will reflect the colours of the flag a bit more accurately. Having said that, it really isn't important at this stage - I can almost smell the quench stamp :lol:

Wow, I haven't been to the foundry in a while... you have that authority!? I'll take it in any case.

Okey doke here are your two options then. Note that I didn't update the minimap on the edited version yet:

Dark on Left
Dark on Right

My opinion here: The image feels slightly more balanced with all darks on one side. In fact I think the balance issue was the reason why this ordering was decided on in the first place.

I prefer the edited version - but at the end of the day, I think I can leave you to call this one ;-)

Pep... Which version have you decided on? I'm getting itchy fingers...

Once you've decided that, please post the links to the large/small images and the XML, and I'll re-ink the Beta stamp ;-)

          Beta - Quenching

---The Final Forge period has concluded for the Germany Revamp. All objections have had their time. The Foundry and I hereby brand this map with the Foundry Beta Brand. Let it be known that this map is now ready for BETA Play. After an extended period of time in BETA and once all quirks and issues have been resolved, the map will be put into Full Play (barring any Lack vetoes).

Conquer Club, enjoy!
