I think you should change Padre Island and Galveston to something closer to their actual sizes and reserve a spot for their army numbers somewhere adjacent to them in the Gulf. Those islands just don't fit the way they are now.

Just a couple of things:

1 - Vermont: Did you mean Vernon?
2 - RGC: Maybe RGV?
3 - You realize, of course, that DFW is not that far north?
4 - There ARE mountains in Texas, but not that many, and further west.
5 - I agree that the cowboy looks a little hokey.

On the positive side, however, I believe you're right on track. Piney Woods and the two islands are exactly what Texas needs to be a playable map.

guys this map is most likely abandoned as there hasn't been any talk on it for over a month and a half.

and the other texas map rlb02a bumped is from last year :lol:

My bad; I'm not one to skim the times at which things were posted. I'll keep that in mind though.

from time to time somebody comes to the foundry and digs an old thread from the pits of the foundry. 8)

Unless they wanted to take it over themselves I'm not sure I see the point...oh well. Shutting up now.

I don't pay enough attention to dates, either...guess I should start.

I was thinking about starting a Texas map, so I searched for ones in progress. This one has loads of potential, in my opinion, so it's a shame if it really has been abandoned.

The barbwire is brilliant! I like it better than the other border objects. But can you make it stand out more? the barbwire's color is so neutral and blends in with some background colors. Maybe black with white border or some other stonger color?

And why isn't the cowboy wearing spurs?

And how bout them Spurs?

when a map maker does not show up in the forum for over 6 weeks my guess is the map is abandoned :roll:
