    Wip The first map for my world

    As announced in an other topic, my first map, albeit infinished, has been made in Paint. I haven't mentioned the names of the peoples, countries and so on on the map, because typing in Paint is a bit messy in my opinion. But I will give a quick overview:

    In the year 3915 NE...

    Green nations : The Irito-Moranian peoples
    North : the Slasvanian chieftains
    East : the succesor states of the Šavrinian Empire
    Centre : the Damarian kingdoms and city states
    Islands : the Iritolian Archipelago Kingdoms
    South-West : Irdonian kingdoms and the Western Teolian Empire
    West : Teolian empires and kingdoms

    Purple nations : The Asmodanian Peoples
    North : Asmodian nomads and the Turvak Ludorak (Invisible Empire)
    South : Envonari nomads

    Red Nations : Cardan Nomads
    East : Cardan coast kingdoms and inland chieftains
    Centre : Lassaran cities and towns
    West : Trakonaj nomads and hunter-gatherers

    Yellow nations
    North and Islands : Pahadan Island kingdoms and chieftains
    South-East : Wusun kingdoms
    West : Kandai city states

    Light Blue
    Amondinian Empire

    Northern Territories
    Scattered farmers and nomads, mostly Cardan, Mirhindön, and Dusan

    Grey Territory
    These territories aren't owned by a nation. The density of people is low and there is no interest in conquering these territories.

    Black Areas
    Mountains. Areas are only owned for strategics source fortresses.

    What's great is that you'll be able to use that map as a base map for working on it on Photoshop or Gimp if you ever decide to !

    Yuppers, A decent looking map done in Paint no less is worth a touch of rep if you ask me. Well done and am waiting to see where this goes.

    I have a problem with GIMP. I've found the tutorial, but I have two problems.
    1) Whatever I try, I cannot open the pallete for the mapmaking tutorial.
    2) Can I change the language settings? I downloaded GIMP in Dutch, but as the guide is written in English, it would help if I could change the language to English.

    in gimp go to Edit-> Preferences-> Interface, and change the language drop-down to whatever you want. Restart Gimp to see the change.

    Look for the Palettes tab, double click on a palette to open it and click on the desired color, if you don't have that tab add it to the toolbox:
    The first map for my world-snapshot1.png
    adding a tab step one (although you can see palettes is already added)
    The first map for my world-snapshot2.png
    here i would select whichever tab i wanted to add.
    These screenies are from my linux box, there adding palettes, bruches etc. to their respective folders is done in: /usr/share/gimp/2.0/
    in Win8 (64bit gimp) its: C:\Users\username\gimp-2.8\
    in WinXP its C:\Documents and Settings\username\.gimp-2.8\
