While I love the effect you have on the buildings in general, I just don't think it meshes well with the background as well as your original version's buildings.

    Oh, and I really like the sidebar way of showing points of interest. It's something you don't see much of and for this map, it just "works".

    Thanks Joe. I cant really take credit for the fields effects. Thats just a texture that Ravells posted here once and I snagged as fast as possible. Its been my favourite ever since. I appreciate the kind words though.

    The buildings are something I also have difficulty with. I like how they turned out but agree they dont quite match. I dont think the earlier versions did either and thats why I tried for a new look. I think its because the rest of the map strives to be more photorealistic than the buildings.

    Hooray, fame at last! - That texture is a cinch to make. I just went into google earth and zoomed into some fields in Britain. Used the offset filter (in PSP) and clone stamp to make them tile and to get rid of any buildings etc. Presumably you could do it with other bits of landscape like deserts etc.

    I use Google Earth for all sorts of textures. In particular, the dreaded forest tile! With a bit of work you can find all sorts of patterns...
