    Fair warning Jake, the contest ends on 6/10 which is Wednesday. The lite contests have been scheduled to go from half-month to half-month so as not to interfere with the big boys' and girls' contest. If you won't be ready by 6/10, probably better to hold off and pull the trigger on the June/July contest.

    I regret that I only have a very old computer that is why I cannot
    get the image size that I would like.

    Now, that's what I call a nice map! It's like I am looking at Google Earth. Your coast, water and mountains are spectacular.
    Like you I regret the size... it would have been very cool to be able to zoom in.

    Can you share some information about how you created this map?

    Unfortunately I cannot rep you as I need to spread my rep around first.

    Those forests totally rock. You have monastery spelled wrong though swap the e and a.

    I got your back, Gandwarf. Rep'ed for a beautiful map.

    The river is pretty wide, I'd argue - unless it's a strait, of course... Or The Grey Mountains are kinda smallish. What's the scale here?

    Yeah, I'd like to know how its done too. Did you lay the mountains and labels down on a satellite image? The water colors, in particular around the coastline, look exactly like a satellite image. The forests look a bit like satellite images too, but its mostly the water.

    Create a terrain in terragen
    Use terrain in vue add base textures lighting and trees
    then photoshop
    then some more photoshop
