    Looks very professional. Illustrator? I can't seem to get crisp lines like that in PS.

    Yes very nice. One to keep an eye on for sure. It looks much nicer full size than the thumbnail here suggests. I.e. everyone should click on that image.

    It's nice that Batman gets a room on the 5th floor. Should have good views.

    Thanks for the encouraging comments, they are very much appreciated.
    I've updated the map a bit...thought this might make it a bit more interesting.

    Looks wonderful. My only criticism would be that your new background is very pixellated when it's zoomed in to its correct size.

    Yeah, I swiped it from the 'net so ya-get-what-ya-pay-for I guess. :-)

    Coyotemax posted a load of distressed paper textures that he created himself. Look for his thread in the Mapping Elements forum and snag yourself a copy of them all. They're great.
