Changed the spelling.
Moved the two sister ships together. Thanks Gypsys Kiss
Changed the mountain. Looks pretty good now.
Changed the trees. Again, I like the look now.
Legend work.

Ideas on texture for the land now as that is the next big thing to work on. Not getting the results I want so any ideas on how it should look?


You could make it like a operation battle board Image
or like a satelitefoto, just with color different teritories Image

I tried the operational board when I developed Invasion UK (1948), but never managed to pull it off to my liking, hence why I never posted it. But the gameplay is all sorted so will get back to that as soon as I have finished this one. Right now, the texture is more like a topographical map, which is not what I want and does not fit into the image I have in my head. The colours look OK now but I need to find a texture that conveys the barren ruggedness of the islands.

I think you should do it as one sees countryside, seen from the air to make it more natural, the Falklands are a hills with grass, gravel, stones and small mountains (what i can see on pictures, have never been there ;) ) As you've made it now it looks very flat, even with the texture, if you bring the land up from the water it migth give something

I had that look at the beginning, but a few guys wanted the mosaic look so changed it. It is a very green land that is very cold and wet. Will play with it some more and hope to have something more concrete later in the week.

You know, I reckon the problem is with the lines. They look a little "drawn on". Whilst that may be what you wanted, I feel it may be sistracting you. Maybe play with smoothing the edges of the lines into the territory or something? I am still learning my graphics programme so please don't hit me if I am asking too much!!

The lines where drawn on and still are. It fitted the earlier version but not this one. Will get round to doing that. Finally found a look that I am happy with.

That looks much better, I think the colors reflect realaty more, as the colors of the island are from grass and gravel/dirt.
Nice what you done with the structure of the land, hang on to that :mrgreen:

thay are nice, and DiM did me a grerat favour on the RD map by letting me use them. But now that I have some (very limited) experience, I will redo them to what I need for this map. That is, if the mods don't keep saying things like, pixelated. :roll:

Pst, it's "Belgrano", not "Bélgrano". No accent there.

The map is looking cool, eh?
