Good start, Tom. One thing I see being an issue is the lack of impassables right now. Make sure you add some so that the middle continents aren't impossible to get. Another thing that might end up being a problem is the map's small-ness compared to maximum map size. I'd say rotate it 90 degrees so it's now doing W-E axis instead of N-S, then make the entire continent bigger. That'll make your life so much easier later when you want to put in circles and territory names. Also, nice job following RjBeal's tutorial on creating nice-looking geographical maps. ;)

Mildly interesting map. May be more appealing if you gave it a theme of some sort. Consider doing something with all the National Parks and Preserves there are on the island.

i think i made it at 450px X 600px, not too sure though, i think thats it,

90 degrees! that much?? are you and me thinking of the same angle???????

i thought about that a bit when doing research, but i didnt have much time, i will go on the link soon and maybe put some parks in :)
CatfishJohnson wrote:ood start man, maybe make the water more real,

yeah its bad init, i was just playing around with the textures' depths and things like that,
but for some reason when ever i altered the bevel or texture on something, it altered all of the layers, - anyone know why that is????
and he layers arent linked/merged

thanks, i was going for an african colour scheme, even though they have like green trees/plants there

I like the idea. You should definitely give it a shot.

I will add more comments once you post another draft with more features.

i acctually laughed when i saw your post, you came!! haha thanks,
an update should be later today, maybe the parks will be added
EDIT:
the national parks are quite small so im wondering if theyd make any difference, i suppose i could put that map on top of my map and see if the parks are in more than 1 terit but i dunno,
one other immpassible could be mountains, i will have a look for some on other maps of madagascar

Click image to enlarge.

i'll just copy and paste what i put at the top:
"i played around with the bevel, and took DiM's comments away (the ones about making the sea first) and came up with that ^ again not much time spent - 45 ins, what ya think of that?"

Too little added to the map to really garner an update. We've lost the continents, still have no idea on bonuses or such, and now have prettier water and a better bevel?

lol
im just ttrying out different things, and if you want something that really deserves to be called a version - go to the travian (or something) map and see his version - its a picture that he found on google images,
anyway - im still trying to work on it but i have v little time to do so, i will do those things soon - and the conts are easy to do - take about 5mins

A beveled nightmare. You shouldn't overdo it with the bevel. It looks cheap to me. You should be very subtle with your layer blends. Too much and you lose the effect.

I like the general idea of this map, but it needs a lot of graphical work.

I agree with RjBeals on the bevel. Also, is the bevel on the entire image (the background layer) necessary? Next, looking at the water makes my eyes feel very out of focus. The background should be redone to look smoother. To get a wave effect, try setting a simple pattern to the later at a very low opacity.

Other than that, there's not much to really comment on yet. There are no continent groupings or impassables, so I can't discuss the gameplay. Once the necessary elements of the map are in place, I'll have more to say.
