You can use that.


thanks, but I used this one. it is too big and when I resized it, it looked bad...

Really?
It looks fine when I do it. It's an SVG file, so you should be able to reduce the size without it looking worse at all.

How about: Image

Oneyed, when you resize things, do you have the interpolation algorithm set to Sinc?

When you select the scale tool, the tool settings has a drop-down box that says "Interpolation", if you set it to "sinc (lanczos3)" before you resize things, you'll get better results.

Ok, no problem. Just so you don't have to change the setting every time, do this:

Go to preferences (in the edit menu), there go to "tool options" and set "default interpolation" to Sinc, this way the interpolation will always be set to it when you start gimp.

A few things that could use attention before we start talking about stamps and whatnot...

The background looks really blurry and messy. Maybe you could find a better one? Or try making one yourself. There are some sites with free textures and patterns, you could search for a paper texture from one of those.

http://www.cgtextures.com/
http://www.textureking.com/

Also, the colour scheme of the map seems kind of drab and dull. Try making the colours a bit more lively.

:ike the border but the lines on the map could be toned down a bit. Also, everything looks really crisp and sharp, which does not look good on the paper you have it. Wrinkle up the borders a tad.

Bottom right of map corner:
independent is spelled wrong

And what is a kraj? Can't even figure out the bonus structure because I have no idea what a kraj is

I would also consider abbreviating the CR/SR in the box in the bottom left corner that shows which belongs to CR/SR. This will free up some clutter in that top right box where you redefine and illustrate the abbreviation.

The Krajs are the coloured teritories. The three-letter ones. The towns are the black dots inside them. I take it he means the bonus is for the kraj terit itself and the towns inside it.

I would write CR and SR in brackets after the names by the two miniature maps in the bottom left. And then use the abbreviations everywhere else.

I see now. will edit this.
Jippd wrote:And what is a kraj? Can't even figure out the bonus structure because I have no idea what a kraj is


Kraj is name for region in Czech and Slovak republics, so two (Czech republic) or three towns (Slovak republic) + region. will do something with this - rename Kraj to Region or add Kraj (region and its towns). what is better way?
