Ps: I need help with the Attatchment method.. I can never seem to get it to work.

I also half based this off of the concept of concentric circle defense.

Good start. AS for the attachment here's a quick step by step

1.When you want to add a picture to a post make sure to click "go advanced" in the bottom of the thread.
2. Write your post as normal
3.On the top of the reply bar there will be a "paperclip" icon click it.
4. The upload manager will open there will be a button named "add new file" click that
5. browse to where you keep your cartography stuff on your computer.
6. Select the file you want to upload and click "open"
7. The upload manager will then upload your file.(remember that 5mb is the max that you can upload)
8. After the manager is done uploading your file it will appear in the bottom area of the manager (as a thumbnail)
9. Click "insert inline" to insert the code snippet the forum needs to display your image.
Thats all there is to it. :)

Great start, I can see how this could make an interesting map (and could be useful in a game session).

As for attachments, everything Jtougas said. The critical thing is the first step, "Go Advanced". In addition to the paperclip icon, if you scroll below the text box you should see the Additional Options section. Clicking the "Manage Attachments" button will get you to the same place as the paperclip.

I made some changed and put in a couple textures. Just trying to make a waterfall and cliff that fits.

I changed it from a waterfall to a river forced to split into 3 directions around 3 different outcroppings.

O_O! sorry.. I have trouble with this forum for some reason.
But! About a day and a half work on this:

Note: I took a screenshot of it instead of the real thing.. The real one is too big.

If you want a thumbnail, just follow jtougas' instructions.

For now though, this is looking really nice.

Also, the thumbnail scraper will only pick up images on the site. If the images are hosted elsewhere you most likely won't be in the running. And that would be a shame.....this is lookin' FIIINE :)

Do not forget to put the ***Latest WIP*** just before the thumbnail so that the scraper can pick the right one.

Don't give up. The challenges are more than anything else about learning and growing. Keep at it. :)

Yeah, no doubt. If I had quit I'd have never got where I am. Number 1 is transient...someone will come along and knock you off. Like next month when we have a new challenge. :) It's about learning new tricks and experimenting with new ideas and making yourself better than you were yesterday. If you're next map comes out better than this one then that's a win in my book. I'm never going to knock off Torstan, The Red Epic, Aerius, Chris West, and those guys with gray names here and the other dudes that actually get paid beaucoup bucks by the game companies but that doesn't stop me from trying to learn new things and get better. The old sports coach thing - "the only way to guarantee a loss to quit but if you keep trying you've always got a chance". The old "2nd place is just 1st loser" only exists in hyper-competitive dudes with needles in their butts and 'roid rage.

Very nice looking so far, and cool idea for the big white arrow.

I will suggest to you (and others reading this) that the best method I've come across for posting images is http://gyazo.com/en
You grab whatever portion of your screen, it uploads instantly, and you just copy/paste the URL. Free small app to install.

It's all I use.

Why would you drop out? Your entry is one of the better ones this month, IMO.
