    Info January Entry: Gwaelydd Peninsular

    I think I'll throw my hat in to the challenge again, even if my chances are slim.
    I'm thinking of redoing one of the maps on the Gwaelydd Peninsular for my Fantasy setting of Belmyr and applying some of the techniques I've picked up. Possibly applying some of the style elements from my September 2008 Challenge map and the City States of Akron map.

    Wip Does it have to be JPG?

    Finally got some time to work on this month's challenge map. I'm just hoping that I can now finish this in time for the close date.

    Any file format that the boards will take is fine though a compressed one is better. Most of mine are either PNG or JPG depending on what the image contains. JPG is the norm tho.

    Yup, I usually end up using .JPG's because of file size issues.

    It said in the challenge post. I'm not really that fussed, like you I usually use PNG format. JPG does compress the file size down though. The same image is 4Mb in PNG.

    Any comments on the suitability of the map for printing? I don't know what sort of printing GamerPrinter uses, but I know there can be issues matching colours with lithoprints if you don't use certain pallettes. I've tried with a colour laser printer and it looks okay.

    Wip

    I upgraded to CC3 quite a while ago. The entries last year were all CC3, as was the map for the City States of Akron.

    A bit more done on the entry map, probably just about halfway, maybe just over.

    Nice job so far, Valarian. You are making CC3 work for you.
    The green hills and trees are not standard CC3 symbols I think? I like them a lot, but haven't noticed them in my catalogus.
    Check out my City Designer 3 tutorials. See my fantasy (city) maps in this thread.

    This is a great start, but it seems that the trees are very 'sharp' while everything else seems to have a bit of a blur to it. Was that intentional or just something you overlooked?
