there are some minor details but it doesn't really matter at this point as i appear to be the only one interested in such details.
at this point in the foundry almost anything can pass through so if other maps which are completely inferior to this one are given a free pass then i honestly don't have the heart to bring up any more issues here.
if this were a more quality concerned foundry with higher standards maybe i'd bother but as it is right now this map is well above what seems to be considered the passing norm.
so as far as i'm concerned you're good for beta.

if you weren't being sarcastic (too sleepy to realise it now) then drop me a pm and i'll gladly give you my input and then you can decide if you want it done or not.

i never said it is crappy. :x
this map is clearly well above standard. if it weren't i wouldn't bother to nitpick it. on a crappy map you can't nitpick you just come and say it sucks and it needs a complete makeover. :lol:
anyway chaos already pmed me so i told him her what my thoughts were.

Could chaos post some of the additional discussion items here? Overall, I'm pretty pleased with this map, but am curious about other possible improvements that may be out there.

2. the title letters have a bit of a fuzziness around their border. it could use being crisper especially because lack will compress your image to about 75-80% its current quality and all that fuzziness will look much worse than it looks now.

3. the little ship on the right side goes over the border, the bird's tail in bottom left goes over the border and the yellow greetings in top left corner go over the border too. but the branch that the bird sits on, the leaf from the branch and the flowers go under. this is not a technical problem but rather a matter of taste. personally i'd like them to be consistent and have all of them under the border.


Thank you DiM, feedback is much appreciated....

the first two need fixed yes. the last one I like how it is

I don't know how to get the title crisper.. and it bothers me. any suggestions to that? I tried stroke, but that doesn't do it..
