    Nah, it looks that way because its zoomed out to about 55% of it really is, the lines are there, they're just very small.

    I zoomed in really close and drew over all gaps with the pencil tool, occasionally checking it with the magic brush to find and fill all gaps.

    Hey guys, hows it going

    I've made a slight altercation to the map, I've made a split in the landmass in the northeastern area of the map. This was to break up the total land mass and allow for more naval interaction. Also the new straight that was created serves a role in the history of Adallia.

    With that done i split Adallia into four realms for colouring. I've coloured the first realm and put in the basic idea of borders and names but i'm going to wait until after the whole thing is complete before i make final decisions about my countries and add any labels.

    So, waht do you think so far?

    That's looking very nice! The layout of the land is very interesting and I love the style you picked.

    You do seem to have some river issues though. I see rivers splitting, which they normally don't do. Water tends to take the way of the least resistance. So if you are shooting for a realistic map, the rivers are a problem. It's your map of course, so you can do anything you want

    Are the small dots in the ocean islands?

    Yeah, i'm going to redo the rivers. I did them in a bit of a hurry and when you're zoomed in really close its hard to remember where the rivers were going and coming from.

    All those small little dots aren't actually supposed to be islands, they were just stray/mess pixels that seemed to get picked up by the shelf layer during construction, in the final map they won't be there as some of them are in locations that will be occupied by other landmasses. That and they're a bit unsighlty.

    Good stuff. Very interesting landmass shape, I like it.

    Hey guys, update more frequently now that i have an easy colouring system.

    I tweaked the map i posted before to remove most of the river violations and those little annoying dots, i left some to serve as small islands.

    I've also coloured another region, the area directly to the south. The colours didn't come out excatly the same, a problem somewhere in the Land phase, but when you put them next to each other its not that noticeable.

    I'm not including any borders or place names yet until i've settled on how many kingdoms i want. I want to keep it down to around 11-13 becuase i have to write a back story for each and the fewer there are, the easier it will be.

    Thnx man

    I'm actually going to redo the one on the right as the flaw in the land stage has really messed with the colouring of the rest of the map. I'm working on the third section and found out what the flaw was and now that i've found it the problesm with the second section are now a lot more noticeable.
