ORIGINAL POST:
first there was a kingdom torn by war. 6 realms battled for supremacy but they trespassed the sanctuary and unleashed a terrible curse. all land was frozen. terrible ice storms ravaged the land but the humans survived and they kept fighting to unite the kingdom and to end the spell. they managed to break the spell but at a terrible cost. a magical portal opened and horrific creatures spew out of it. golems orcs dwarves elves and liches invaded the land and forced the humans to a hasty retreat in aoria. the safe haven of humanity. now each race has a domain and each wants total annihilation of the others. so the war rages on even more than before.
each races is unique and has a special trait that affect them and their homeland. each race has 2 power runes from which they gather their strength. the objective is only one. kill or be killed.

100 terits.
features:
- 1 way attacks
- decay
- starting neutrals
- possibly killer neutrals
- conquest gameplay
- resource type bonuses
- various terit count bonuses
- bombardments

so here's the map.

yay!

first post

Suggestions:
decrease the contrast on some of the textures, especially around Borun and Xi. Aoria and Mua have really gentle textures, the others are a bit too intense for me to like.

For the new purple places around sanctuary, can you make them actual water, instead of purple painted onto the water? cause right now it just looks painted on. try blending it in a bit more and hilighting the edges so they look a bit more watery.

also, The first two maps had a good feeling in them. Might felt warm and open, Magic actually seemed cold and intense. Mayhem just seems to be a jumble of different parts put together and don't fit with each other wlel.

instead of all of those intense textures, have you tried recoloring each section to different kinds of land?

Such as sand, rock, dirt, clay, forests, etc.
I think that would look quite a bit better than the textures it has now.

Dont quite understand all of the bonuses but i also think that the ice spires are too close to each other, so one should be moved to rongar or something like that.

that's exactly what i didn't want. some simple flat textures. want the realms to stand out as much as possible. think of the graphic style as a hyperbole. that's what i wanted to achieve.

also i wanted to animate the whole map.
make it in flames (similar to the sig) and add various little animations, like griffins flying, harpies, dragons, the runes blinking as if they're oozing with power, some human troops marching, dust on the fields and waves in the sea. but just adding the flames makes the file 16Mb for the large version. then if i add all the other extra stuff i think i'll go up to 20-22Mb :(

read the legend for the bonuses. i think it's pretty clearly explained.
