    Heh - like I prefaced my original RiverCop remarks - if it makes you happy and suits your needs, anything goes. Still, as I am the King of rationalization - what tech / society level are the people on this map? Can they do canals? A second outlet that is artificial is a whole 'nother kettle o' fish....

    Bogie - Thanks so much!

    jbgibson - Honestly, I really haven't thought at all about tech/society level.


    Here's an update on the lava region. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, although maybe the red highlights on the volcano are a bit too bright?

    Looks good though the shadow on the edges (of the central lava lake) has some issues that makes it rather look a bit cambered.

    Thanks Max. I see what you mean about the shadows. I think erasing the dropshadow at the bottom should fix it...and it shouldn't be there anyway because of the perspective. Ooops!

    Okay, I erased all of the thicker dropshadow, so now it's even around the entire perimeter of the lake. I think that fixed the problem.

    Also darkened the volcano a bit, reduced the red highlights, and did some minor editing to the lava texture.

    That's really nice work Neyjour, I especially like the lakes and the new lava effects.

    The map looks already great. And I second PWKerns, your lava is truly excellent!

    Thanks very much, guys!

    I think I'm pretty much done now. Just need to do the labeling. Curved text is extremely limited in PSP8, so I'm going to use Inkscape for that. Found a couple good tutorials on YouTube, and it looks like it should be fairly simple. *crosses fingers* I'll (hopefully) have another update to show after Christmas.

    Thanks so much to everyone who has commented so far! I hope you all have a great Christmas and New Year!

    A detail bothers me a bit (but some details makes better maps sometimes doesn't it?) I haven't noticed it before but it seems thet the shaded side of the trees is not the same than the mountains shaded side?
