Could you send the .xcf to manbungalow@yahoo.co.uk and I'll try to demonstrate what I'm thinking ?

You don't have to, of course.

ManB, I am sorry but I will not send you my xcf files. You are more than welcome to describe, post a picture, jump up and down screaming, send smoke signals or any other form of communication. ;)

While you are at it, can you go and tell nobodies what your problem is with Madrid so we can get it into beta.

Is this map going to go into Beta soon? I'm looking forward to playing lots of 1v1 on it.

I've attached the updated XML in this thread, with the correct code for the collection bonuses. I will post another updated copy once a decision has been made on how to name the collections. Think we can get this one in play soon?

The map has been sitting for awhile, so let me boost it a bit now! :mrgreen:

Last Call

The map has passed through rigorous gameplay and graphics examinations and all major concerns have been addressed. The XML has been written, checked and stamped, so if you have any other concerns, please make your voice heard.

If after a reasonable amount of time there has not been any reasonable objection or protest, the map will be stamped and submitted for the Beta period.

Please, post questions and concerns if any.

The texture on the wall around the edge still sucks and I'm not a fan of the font in the legend.

Try using auto-hinter or something to make it look, uh, more ... good. I think I mentioned something about fonts in one of the other threads.

What part of the graphics do you mean? Let me know what part you feel needs looking into and I will get it sorted.

Well i dont even know where to start, but i will try :)

First, the main Grey surrounding area, work on it. Use a different texture, play around with it to see what u can get from it. Also make it a bit darker, and the letters a bit lighter(A to N), so the map gets a bit more contrast and gets easier to the eye

Second, Slve entrances. It took me a few days to try to understand what the hell is that(without reading the legend)
It looks a bit of cardbox rippen apart...do something like a bridge ,gate or something that can be easier to identify as an entrance of
something

Then the icons, like medusa rings etc...i can say u can find some stuff prettier than that
The prometheus in the center, make it more beautifull and proeminent

Finally The legend. That font has a bold version?if so try it out. Letters are to thin, and in that orange background they tend to fade a bit

Thats it, hope it helps
Cheers

Looks like the walls will have to go the way before. Will get them changed.

Top down wooden roof. Perfectly fine and it needs to show the numbers off as well so these will stay as is.

Then the icons, like medusa rings etc...i can say u can find some stuff prettier than that The prometheus in the center, make it more beautifull and proeminent

Icons will stay as is as well. These where gone over in great detail. remember, they have to be different ebough from each other, hold an army number on top and be colour blind friendly.

Finally The legend. That font has a bold version?if so try it out. Letters are to thin, and in that orange background they tend to fade a bit

Legend font, will look at the bolded version but size is a key factor here. I have very little room on the small map. Will have a look at it and see what can be done. No promises though.

Thats it, hope it helps
Cheers

Will work on the walls today, should still have the old file for that.

This should solve the concerns by Armandolas. As I said, the rocks can change as he pointed out, their was a need graphically for them to do so. Icons have stayed the same. As explained, these ones are proven to show up behind all numbers and sizes, even with the CB issues. Decided to redo the slave entrances. After all, why not when I worked on the rest. A lot of the smaller eliments have had to be redone as they all tied into each other. Looked at the font, the bolded font for this one makes it to large and when taken down a pixel or two to allow it to fit, it becomes completely unreadable. Looked at another font but again, the same issue. I do not see it as such as no one else has said they cannot read it but will keep it in mind when in beta.

I have to admit koontz, this looks much, much cleaner. Will the coordinates needs to be changed in the xml?

No, checked the cords before posting.

It is cleaner, but not as fluid. More of a man made place than something that has been carved out by natural forces. More man than other world.
