    Thanks for all the very kind comments. Here is an almost finished version, with creepers, flags, statues anda few shadows added. Its slightly over 75 kb but I will make sure the finished one fits with the rules

    Cool. Can't wait to see the high res version. The ivy vines are a really nice finishing touch. It looks like the invasive crap has taken over the lower roof and battlements!

    Magnificent! How you've managed to keep so much definition at that file size is beyond me!

    I know this offends against just about every rule of what should not be put on a VTT map, but I just couldn't resist it.

    Keep it! I thik it adds a great atmosphere to the tower and adds to the illusion of depth. This is such a superb entry, I can't believe you can still find ways to continue to improve it.

    Torq- love it. except for the bird shadow at 1:00 on the main tower roof. It is cast on the wood roof to the tower "floor" and seems to break the light angle.

    The question to be raised... is this your entry map, or is the one without the flying creatures? Just asking because one of the other entry threads asked if the challenge is to make the "prettiest map" or the "most usable in a VTT map"...
