WIP: I'll take one with everything
I think I'm gonna end up being one of those people who has a million WIP threads and never finishes anything. This map isn't for any game, though I might end up using it for something or another. Mostly I'm trying to cram in every terrain type and every piece of furniture I've made into one map so that I can have a single file to grab things from when I'm creating other maps. Also makes it easier to write a tutorial when everything is in a single image.
It's very rough at the moment, as you can see. I'm still fiddling with the overall design and learning how to make things as they occur to me.
Warning: file resolution is humongous.

Not a bad idea there from an organizational standpoint.
If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
-J. Robert Oppenheimer (father of the atom bomb) alluding to The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 11, Verse 32)

As long as you are continuing to learn new skills it can't hurt
Hi, nice to meet you. I'm Koor, welcome to my club.

What program did you use for your map? If it's dundjinni, I'd heard that including all of your images in one map was the best way to start off, since otherwise you'd have to individually import everything time and time again as you created new projects.
Sweet. Is there free kool-aid?

I'd like to give gimp a whirl one of these days though.
