it works but not perfect and if you can make a perfect circle in a different way why not? just trying to make your skills with the programs even better.

The thing is, that the different way doesn't work every time.

Take a look at all the different army circles in my lunar war map for example, or the shaped capital "circles" in my nordic countries map. These can't be done with simple ellipse tools with fixed width settings...

The advantage in my method is that it works every time, no matter what shape, size, colour, etc. you want to make your army circles.

i took a look at them and tried them with my method, you have to take 1 or 2 extra steps but than you get a perfect pixel ratio for your goal. if you want to know how i can show you only not now too late :)

Maybe someday, but we probably use different software...
