    Other than the pathways? looking somewhat out of place with the rest of the piece. This is really quite nice.

    Yeah I know that pathways are kind of redundant underwater but when I tried removing them it still looked wierd, may have to fiddle around with it.

    I think all you need to do is even them up a bit, they are very jagged-y looking.

    Yeah they are jagged but that's because i tried leaving them straight but with the square tiles it looks wierd to have them cut off at odd angles. Maybe could play around with it and add sort of like a border pavement to the edges of it to create a smooth edged pathway.

    You should make it transition from sand to tile and add some of the sand to the top of the path ways. I'm thinking the water currents would always keep the path dirtyish looking or at least have an edge that's not so cut and dry.

    Yeah, I think geamon is right about having the sand "bleed" onto the paths. Not too much cause I am sure that there would be someone whose job it is to keep the base from being obver run by sand, but enough to get rid of the jaged edges.

    Looks great otherwise Well done.

    Okay, I've added an extra layer of sand over the edges of the tiles, there are still noticeable edges but as Korash said they probably have someone to sweep most of the sand away.

    That is such a cool map and would be fantastic for a gamma world campaign!

    Thank you, the proccess of making the underwater effect was actually pretty easy and had a massive impact on the look of the map. I can teach you if you want.

    Wow, what a stunner! I'm really impressed. But then, I've always been impressed with your maps D, so no big surprise there.
