As you can see I'm pretty new to this game, but I decided it would be fun to make a nice map in my free time :D :lol:

I have made a map (yes it has to be sized down) just wanted to see what you lot think.

I'm going to bed now, so you'll notice the map names aren't finished, but I'll finish them tomorrow, I thought some feedback before I continue tomorrow night would be good.

Here's the map:

P.S. does anyone know of any good image hosting site, preferably one that doesn't make you have to pay/sign up and doesn't delete it in less than a month.

P.P.S. I haven't made an XML file for the map, but the coding is easy and using the handy utils :wink: cheers Jota, country co-ordinates shouldn't be any problem.

Edit: :( how do you get this pissing image BBcode to work...

A really good first effort. Looks like it could be interesting. The sea needs to be lightened a lot in my opninion, and it could be a little linear, but definitely an interesting prospect.

I suppose it is a lovely texture for the sea. Maybe lightening the countries would help. Either or really...

if you're going to say that at least tell me why...

I think the bonuses are very good...

the bonus 5 conts. have three entrances, and 7 countries in them...
(Europe in original map)

the bonus 3 conts. have 3 entrances and 5 countries
(like africa although africa has 1 more country...but 3 is fairer than 2)

China is bonus 6, it has 5 entrances like asia in original but only 7 countries instead of 12. but, entrances are what matter most and people won't really want to let any player have it, so team up on them. It also gives more of a chance of taking it nearer the start (I have never seen asia taken and held in the 1st 5 rounds of a game, It's just a card farm)

the 2 conts. are pretty much like south america and australia, but they have 1 extra border, one less country, making them a bit harder in my opinion.

Any other opinions would be helpful :roll: :wink:

first page and you ask for opinion of bonuses.
You must go first visual, terittory,put names in teritory, borders, Title ,then you goo in bonuses,
step by step, if you think that you create map for 30 day, you wrong.
These i think too.

Here are the two new resized korea maps.
I have lightened the sea slightly, also all the names are in, and the layout I have moved around slightly.

Hope you like :D


Large

Image

Small

Image



I just need some tips now on what needs changing.
Font ok? I thought It was slightly too big on the large map, and not readable enough on the large map.

I don't really know what needs doing from now so if someone could point me in the right direction...

Edit: I realise now that some of the things in the small map got a bit screwed up when I downsized it, I'll address that now, there are also some general asthetic issues that need to be cleaned up.

You must design two versions of the map: a small (up to 600 px wide), and a large (up to 800 px wide).


My large is 800px and small is 600px wide isn't it (this is an actual Q. Fitz says his is 800px wide, but it says it's less than 500 wide on my machine)

That is upto maximum :? is it prefered smaller?

Anymore suggestions about looks?
Do the borders look rough?
Do the infill colours for the countries look to bright/ do the fill textures suite the map?


About playability,
Do I need any impassable borders?
42 countries with 8 continents is good?
Continent bonuses ok?

Sorry If I ask too many Q.s but I have a lot of free time at the moment and need to occupy myself :lol:

Can anyone give me any help on how to make it smaller height wise?

I think I may have to scrap this map, I have an idea for a new one thats much more interesting.

Also I think this map is a bit messed up...

What program are you using? Just use Image Size in photoshop to resize the whole thing and your layers will still be present.

Yeah I know that, it's just it is too tall compared to width. If it's only allowed to be 500 ish height, it will be much too small width

Its 800 or 500 width, not height. Shouldn't be too much of a problem.

I like ur first map, i think you sortof ruined it in later edits. The first map is more square than the rest, which is good, and i preffered its oceans as well. All u had to do was resize it.
