    Maybe I was a bit too playful with the names of the maps. Yes you did... like this one.

    Here she is. Need to work on the forest still -- having trouble creating a texture i can manipulate with filters. I might change the cities/names to something more... modern? any votes for modern?

    I like the names myself. I don't think the forests mesh with the overall style of the map tho..

    Its a real nice map, maybe the forests need a bit more tweaking... maybe the are a bit too 'shiny'? I would try to add a darker shape to them.

    I guess modern names would work as well, but it wouldnt matter to me.

    I think the shape of the forests are to "smooth", maybe need to break them up some, make them a bit more irregular. The names are fine but the city icons seem a little overlarge to me, but that's more preference than any kind of issue.

    Heh Steel, actually I like those oversized city icons. It's a nice idea and something unique and at least imo works with this map.

    DOn't get me wrong, I don't dislike them. Maybe I'm just not used to seeing such big 'icons' on maps, perhaps the idea will grow on me.
