Ii am finding that the graphics on your map are not quite coming together yet. Their is no consistent theme. However as a new map maker I am encouraged with your rate of development from your first draft to this current one. You are showing potential as a mapmaker, you just need to refine skills and artistic eye. And judging by you current development rate this shouldn't be a problem.
usually with map makers as new as yourself who are refining their skills I find it better to 'restart' a map than try to patch over the issues during your learning curve of map making. That would be my advice again here. However if you really don't want to restart the whole map, then I suggest this. Concentrate on making your map consistent around the graphics of the actual map area. This is by far your strongest aspect in this map. The background, legends, clip art etc don't really fit with this.
You get what I am saying?
Keep up the good work though!
Hi Gimil, thanks for your input.
I just do not quite understand why there should be a "consistent theme" ? there's plenty maps to play here on CC that do not have a theme, and yes there are indeed many who have one, but thats also what makes it is fun to find games here on CC, all people are different and the diversity of maps makes something for everyone here at CC, if all maps in terms of visuals and thematic content resembled each other here at CC, I do not think it would be the same success.
But I understand what you say, and there is a nother draft of more to come. Constructive criticism is always good, it has been noted
