Nice map! Rather stylized...seems like the sizing of symbols is a little off, but it still definitely gets the point across.

What problems are you having with attachments?

I like. Nice work. I've been working on a custom symbol set to map an island I'm working on, I'll post a WIP here soon.

I got to take a better look at it just now...and I noticed something...those trees and other symbosl seem to all be placed by hand...one by one...is that true? If so, my god man, that makes the map that much better actually because the forests look really nicely done.

I also liek the placement of the waterfall.

I think the cities might be a little too small symbol-wise though because it seems like everything else is stylized and big, whereas the cities are tiny in omparison.

Also, you need to look into some basic sheet effects...such as blur on the water layer, to blend that water contour together...also maybe a light tan inner glow on the land to simulate beach...check out my Sharnalon map in the Finished Maps forum to see what I'm talking about.

As for the file not attaching...it can't be size because I have file size limits currently set at 5MB...did it give you an actual error message?

I have Not had time to play around with the advanced layers and effects yet.
