    Wip New Scale Test

    I wanted to try and get some some detail in my maps, so I am trying a zoomed in scale. Any comments are welcome. Thanks.

    No comments yet. I like the market stalls, where did you get them?

    It's a nice little map.

    I recognize those market stalls, they are from the Dundjinni forums.
    That is such a great resource.

    Very pretty.

    That is a difficult scale. It's close enough to border on illustration. The set pieces begin to look like duplicates really fast.

    Looks a little like its from the twilight zone with no other detail though...

    Sorry for skipping this earlier but all I wanted to say was "can't wait to see more".

    Mox404, I have noticed that you are always putting a tree in your central square. (I cannot think of an exception.) Could you explain why? What are you hiding beneath those green boughs?
