I play a game called nationstates, and I am part of a forum where the users roleplay their nations on a fictional world map. I'm the guy in charge with making and updating the map but, well, my skills are sub-par and I don't really have the dedication or time to make a quality of map that I think is reflective of the quality of our roleplay. Currently the forum is going through a significant change, including the scrapping of our current map for a new one, which I am expected to make. However, I really am not that good; I would say "adequate" for the purposes of our roleplay.

However, I've always wanted to create a nice satellite-view type of map for the forum that the users could become more immersed in. As it stands, the map is rather crudely done. I've tried my hand at Fractial Terrain Pro but I can't seem to get a handle on it, and it doesn't produce results that satisfy me; the shading is kind of weird as is the colouring, I find.

I'm not expecting a response to this, as I am basically asking for some quality work for absolutely free (I am by no means a wealthy person who can afford to pay people to make fantasy maps). If you want, I can send you a copy of the existing map (it's pretty big, 6000 x 3000 pixels, and we'd probably be asking for something similarly sized).
