Hello, I have browsed this forum, and I love every single map here, everyone here, well, mostly everyone, are sheer geniuses! Each map has details I could only dream of.

So, I come to my conclusion, could someone please make me a world map?

I'd like it like this: http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd188/NS_Crossbowman/lisosiapolit.png

However, no colors filled in for the land, all the land just one blank color, whatever you choose, but you can just use the same color has the one above. I can fill in the nations that I want. I just need all the continents down on it. It will be for my Region in the game Nationstates. If someone could just do this.

Thanks!

This usually goes into the Mapping Requests forum but if you give me a rough sketch of how you want your continents to be placed then I can whip ya up something real quick.

There's no real sketch just make it look real and using the same guidelines as the one I posted above (not their position of the continents though). You can position the different parts of the map however you want, however, make it look like how real nations might look. We would fit a lot of nations on the map though. Just follow the same thing as the example I posted.\

Thanks So Much!

Hmm... I like that, but could it have a little more "flare?" And not just the basic one continent on each side and then one in the middle. I want it to be really good, and have everything down to the exact detail. Have it interesting, and above all highly realistic.

That will have to be a rectangle then to be a true world map and as far as realistic goes...well, I don't really have the knowledge or time to do up a full tectonic study. I can only make it as real as I know how...pretty much just educated guesswork. What about the color? You said you'd put in the nations so I wanted to get this color right.

A rectangle is fine, and educated guesswork is fine, and the color looked perfect to me. It was exactly as I showed with the example. And thank you!

Try number 2.


You Guys Are Really Pure Genius At This Line Of Work! This is quite remarkable, however, could you just add some more continents to it? But, without making it to bust? If that wouldn't be too hard.

Could you change number 2 so I can edit it with MSPaint?

Change it how? Just save the pic to your hard drive, open MSP, open the file, and then play with it until you're happy.

When I edit it in Paint, it doesn't color it all the way. Like this:

As you can see from the red continent, it doesn't color it in all the way. I don't know if you can change that or not.

The problem is that there are artifacts when two colors are near one another. There's a kind of "bleeding" that occurs in jpg's; the computer can "see" them but our eyes cannot. I don't have the original file so I downloaded the file, just as you would, then bumped the contrast and brightness and saved as a gif image. Then I tried it (in Photoshop) and it worked for me so give this a spin and see if it works for you.

It's not coming up.

It just shows that little red X in the box.
