Here are the Large and small maps. I don't have the XML done (or started) I jsut pasted and moved the numers around to show what it would look like.
The numbers around the map have been changed to symbols. Does anyone have any suggestions. I am going to stop working on this map until we can agree on the gameplay.
P.S. Note to all other Cartographers.
For those who care I want to explain how I made this map. Maybe some of the things I learned will help others make their maps better too.
I used Photoshop. In Photoshop, all I used to make this entire map was the pen tool, marque tool, eraser, text tool and paint brush with black paint.
THAT IS IT. All color and shading and texture was done with layer styles and blending modes. If you could disable all of the effects for this map you would have around 500 layers of black lines and blobs.
I just wanted to let everyone know because this map shoudl how you can make very compelx and detailed pictures without the need to actually draw layer different pics. The blending modes and layer styles are GREAT!!!
