I agree that's certainly viable
I can understand what you're meaning, and please do provide a sample - I'm interested.
I was just trying to create something more user friendly in this regard, however I hope this wouldn't be a restriction for more creative mappers.
So, what if I were to create a Mountain Mods pack, that includes black and white, black line only and outline with color fill versions all included. So the mapper can decide which module type works best for their methods?
And for this Old West Map and map object challenge, I'll provide all three in the final submission. This of course will be for all map object elements, not just the mountain modules. 8)
More mountains and some buildings
OK, I've created a few more mountain faces and a couple buildings - Fort Joachim and Mission of San Pedro, as well as a frontal mine entrance with an ore car on rails.
I want to create some pointed ridge mountains as well to round out the mountain mods.
It was getting late, so I didn't make any more for tonight.
WIP so far...
Oh, that's for sure in this case!
I've already said on the first page of this thread, that "muted watercolor tones" is what I plan to use in my color version of this map. So RP you're quite right about ruining it if I choose any other texturing method.

Wish I still had Painter, its the best at creating watercolor imagery. (CD scratched and harddrive fried with my last loaded copy.) I'll probably use PS instead. :|
Some ridge type mountains and more buildings
I added a few north-south non-flattop mountain ridges - as I need a few in my final map.
I created several structures: on top is the Hacienda of Don Ernesto Reyes, beneath that is a redo of my Mining Town Mill with a Town Hotel in foreground - which represents Orion Hill and the Constellation Mine, beneath that I have the adobe ruins of Haleyville, near the bottom is the tents of Gila Gulch, and in the corner is an Agave cactus.
WIP so far... 8)
Slowly, but surely I'm getting this done. Each night I can create about ten or so objects. I need a few east-west and diagonally arranged ridge mountains and end-pieces and that should do it for Mountain mods for this challenge.
I need to create a few dozen more plants, a few more mining structures, a railroad, and the other required symbols for the challenge. After which I will begin coloring of the web objects.
Then finally, I'll get to assemble the map of Superstition Valley and get ready to finalize it!
(I hope I'm not the only one doing this challenge! )
