I like the bright colours. The borders between territories look kind-of primitive, though. I think they could use more complexity, something that suggests the chaotic way borders between neighbourhoods actually evolve.

Sorry! Didn't realize making a folder on my Photobucket for all my drafts would mess with the links. :oops:

Glad you like the colors - Paris is (or, at least, can be) a colorful city, and I want the map to reflect that.
What you say about the territory borders makes a lot of sense. I'll play with them a bit and see what happens - I'll probably try for something more in line with the "accepted" borders first and see how that comes out.

sampai...these are just ideas to muck around with in your head.
I have to agree with Dukasaur...i think you've got a theme going there with the colours and the bottom left image being the same colours...bright but yes they work.
Yes the borders need work...what is happening on border near Gard du Nord...it's blue and not black...deliberate?

if you're going to use the Paris shield, see of you can get a better version and not so big...its very washed out and pixelly because it's been up-sized.

Perhaps a different softer background for the terts...pencil stroke if OK, but its very all the same way if you get what i mean.

See the bottom fringe around the cafe awning. See if you can create something like that to sit all legend stuff in...it would work in with that picture element.

i think this is the best you've produced so far. and it's heading in a better direction now. :)

Glad to hear it - that makes my life a little easier.

Yes - that's the Canal St. Martin - an impassable.

OK. I'll see what I can dig up.

I'm not sure I do. Can you explain a little more? (I apologize if I seem stupid, but...I guess I kind of am, as far as this sort of thing is concerned).

You mean for the minimap - as opposed to just having it against the background? OK, I can work with that.

Thank you! That's what I thought when I looked at it, and I'm very glad you agree.

sempaispellcheck...a suggestion present for you to jog your mind to re-arrange the elements...
notice also the treatment i gave the fill on the territories...it just lessens the intensity of the strokes which are still there but not so pronounced :)

Thanks for the suggestions, cairns! Not sure that's exactly what I want, but a lot of good ideas and a lot for me to play with.
For example, I do think lessening the texture is good, but I don't think I want to lessen it quite that much. :P I'll play around with it and see what I see.
I'm going away for 2 weeks, and I won't be able to work on it while I'm gone, but I'll get cracking on Version 10 once I get back.

Thanks again!

might be cool to have some landmarks

Personal preference: I am not too fond of the cafe gif that you have. I would like to see something a little more realistic, but still a cartoon.

not exactly this but maybe a little more like this

Here is a good one that shows the location of landmarks

This has nothing to do with this map I just thought it was a neat gif

Moved to ideas as an update has not been made in a month. If the map maker wishes to continue with this, he can by making an update and contacting one of the cartographers.

OK, now that I'm done with school and such, I've had time to bang out an update. Le voilà:

Click image to enlarge.

Moved stuff around, added a sky with a sun in it, because it looked empty otherwise.
I still need to get those landmarks in, though.

Thoughts?

You haven't done anything with those borders. That's what constitutes the "map" as such. I think you can put off work on the background until later.

Interesting looking map. I assume you are going to fix the borders? I also do not like the "whole floating map" idea.
