sorry for the delay. i confirm nolefan's conclusion that the gameplay is solid, so u can feel free to progress the graphics without fear that the borders need to change for gameplay reasons. the only additional suggestions i have are for the green bonus to be reduced from +4 to +3 and for the inner ring neutrals to be amended from n3 to n2, both to encourage more play in the middle; these do not require graphic changes.

Title, good to see the whole thing now. But needs the polish. :)
Picture (top right) far better. Bottom rights sky is too light, darken that with some blue. ;)
Bridges, some of the best and really work with this style. =D>
The rest of the map, and that is everything, will need to be gone over with a fine tooth comb, changed altered and just generally brought up to standard. Sorry to be blunt about that. O:)

koontz, i'll take a peak at these later....

Russian Jewels?? My first thought on the playable area was stained glass, but doesn't look like stained glass.

The jewels around each picture, get rid of the glow or whatever it is around them.

There is some brown protruding out from underneath the frame area, top, top left and left side.

Now that you've said that, i have tried to apply a leaded glass effect on the outer regions to see what you'all think.

The jewels around each picture, get rid of the glow or whatever it is around them.

Removed, and have redone the diamonds around the pictures...with new contrast to make them a little more whitish diamonds

There is some brown protruding out from underneath the frame area, top, top left and left side.

I beleive those have been fixed.

I'm still trying to work on the gold effects..it's not working well at present and may take some time.

For now...version 13...

I'm liking the leaded glass look on the outside regions, do the rest that way and I'll give you a better answer.

These two areas, the borders look like you did them twice and didn't quite get them exactly the same.

Are they too small or too big for leaded glass?

I don't really see leaded glass in it. Maybe if there are some colour variation within a bonus it would look more natural.

The gold ring looks good btw. Integration with the theme could possibly be that the ring was originally full but there are some gaps in it from wear and tear.

glad you like the gold ring, but what do you mean by the rest?

If it is a gold ring on a window it is more logical if it was originally fult closed. If the edges of the gaps are not so round but broken pieces it might look more natural. Some cracks or dirt or pieces of lead might do the trick.

Re: CLASSIC CITIES: Moscow [12.8.12] V14-P9 GFX

Postby cairnswk on Sat Aug 11, 2012 4:24 pm

Version 14.

I'm mucking around with different textures at present and presentation.
I think this version might be the go moving forward.

Because i chose to update the map inline with the google map, the river has moved.
This caused a change in the layout of the olive regions below Yaramanka and also to the Ochakovo border.
I'm wondering if nolefan5311 will re-examine those regions to ensure to bonuses are correct, please. :)

I'll continue to update this version until all the mosaic look is complete around the map unless there is a huge negative backlash about it.

Oneyed

the mosaic is done on the inner regions...the outer regions still to be completed....it's taking quite a while. ;)
not sure about the street "vein" colour yet.
I've also placed in the latest update to V14 (pls refresh) the star bonus.
