    I think the forest are much better now, and the rest of it is very good. Nicely done!

    I just joined this forum, and right away I found this lovely map of Wheloon. As a beginner in using Campaign Cartography, I am amazed at what an expert can do. How fun!

    toning down the drop shadow worked great. It also helped to break the color up more with the text elements. This turned out just fine!
    Something witty and pithy

    Well i've touched up the map a bit to show more buildings that i forgot and ... removed the forested area I'm sad because i liked the effect but after reading more on the town i found that in essence, the city is surrounded by farmland and not forest. So removre it and placed more farmlands.

    I think it still does the job ok and i'll use forest on my next project, the City of Shadowdale

    Thanks

    Wow that looks pretty cool. Maybe I should get that darn program and then put my own spin on things. Nice job.

    This is pretty cool, I really like it except for one teeny-tiny, little thing... it seems like everything is kind of floating (houses, trees, etc.). Not sure if that's a CC thing, hell it might just be me.

    Anyone else think so, or are my eyes really getting as bad as I'm always joking they are?

    No, I agree. It looks like all the stuff is floating in the air.
    I checked the version before this one and you can't really notice the problem there as the map has a smaller size. This large version is still gorgeous but if you zoom in you get the floaty effect... weird.

    It is the drop shadow effect. It looks like this:
    Code:
     __
    |  |_
    |__| |
      |__|
    rather than this:
    Code:
     __
    |  |\
    |__| |
     \___|
