    Post November Challenge Voting!

    Well, this month was pretty quiet...Didn't get a lot of participation (unless you consider gamerprinters LOT of participation!)

    RobA came through in the end and gave us something to vote against! So shake hands boys and come out fighting...umm...well no fighting allowed...just voting!

    Remember the guidelines when you vote:
    • Create symbols that can be used by any graphics or mapping application (png preferred)
    • Adhere to the Western theme
    • Ensure the list of required symbols is met
    • Bonus consideration for making additional, unlisted symbols
    • Bonus consideration for making a matching compass rose
    • Bonus consideration for making a map utilizing the symbols

    It was an extremely difficuly decision .... I like both (but for some reason that's not a voting option). I love Rob's simple mapping design, and think that this'd make a great themed symbol set for Campaign Cartographer. However, I've gone for GamePrinter's symbols on pure artistic merit.

    Post I voted for me, but...

    Ok, like RobA, I voted for myself, but, I have to say, despite the "simplified" graphics in RobA's - I really do like the style. It really looks "Old West" in style and authenticity. I really do like it!

    Excellent work, guys! Both styles really capture the feel of the genre and the period.

    Both maps are really good. They were designed with different philosophies, so it's a little like trying to compare apples and oranges.

    Both had strengths:

    The simplicity of Simply Western--exactly how I imagined a map from that period looking.

    The fact that the mountains in Superstition Valley were all modular blows me away.

    In the end, it was almost a coin toss.
