    Yay, more city maps

    I like it a lot! I love your water and that water mill. Although the water is behaving a bit strangely I think by forking or is there a reason for that (maybe a spring or something)?
    The large building on the hill is some sort of keep or castle?
    Very well done, have some rep.

    Oh, and I wanted to say the map looks really crisp. No jaggies, like in most of my CD3 maps

    Doh, the large building is probably the monastery. I didn't read the title of your thread I guess

    Very nice! You have done Fractal Mapper proud(it's what I started with)! Would you mind exporting a larger version to upload, perhaps 1500 by x?

    I would think about coloring the legend scroll tanish and perhaps adding one of the textures to it to give it a parchment look. It kind of stands out with the pure white on such a nice colorful map. Personally, I would like to see a blue color for the water, but that's just me.

    Have you posted this on the NBOS forums(email list actually)?

    I agree with JFJr, I'd prefer to see blue water or even a blue-green, with the current color it seems more like mud. Of course if there is a specific reason for it to be that color than just ignore this.

    Overall a nice piece of work.

    Feels like home to me. All the rivers in Kansas are brown.

    I'd expect the mill to be next to the waterfall--there is more power available there.

    Depends on the mill, building next to a falls/rapid would be harder than where there is a steady, but slow, flow of water. Now that you've mentioned it, I don't remember seeing any underflow water wheel being built close to a water fall. And overflow water wheels (ones where the water is poured into the wheel from above) tends to still be built down stream a little, and water diverted by a short aqueduct.

    Nice. I agree with the other posters. Not as jagged as most vector maps, and the mill should be by the falls.
    Think about what a quick run through PS or GIMP might do to it!

    Morkhdull, if it fits, would you mind zipping your *.fmp file and upload here? Did you create any of the symbols or are they all stock FM8 symbols. It's hard to tell based on the size...
