Thanks, I was pretty happy with the building ( not to bad even now looking back ), but I was never happy with the landscaping.
Here is the start of the new map. I am keeping the exact wall size and the 3 furnaces. I did change the color of one of them. Still not sure about the interior floor, should I go with a flagstone texture like this or a stone block something like the original. Still have a lot to do to finish it.

Bogie, its great to see the old map and the new. New is definitely better!
The furnace you changed the colours of is MUCH nicer now. By the way that big brassy furnace is really really lovely.
The exact point that your stone floor texture cuts at the bottom (just past a seam) creates the illussion of a white line - you should bring the grass 5 pixels northwards or something.
The old and new maps are frighteningly similar! I love the way the challenge implies that we will be improving with age! I'm pretty sure I've got sloppier and more jaded and my maps are getting steadily worse.
Thanks Jack, I appreciate the nice comments and the rep. I know you've been busy, but looking forward to more of your maps.
I plan on blending the line between the grass & tiles when it is finished.
I am trying to keep the shop similar but not identical to the original, but I think the yard will have more of a change.
That dwarven forge is great, but I can only take credit for how I used it not for creating it. The original is actually twice as large.
Already seeing several improvements. Looking forward to seeing the completed work.
