Eldar: Show me how you think you can make this map look better! I'll be interested in seeing it. But I'm afraid I have to side with IL on the matter: it's a photograph & the map itself will need some improvement in the text (either larger or drop shadow). But I will consider an ancient look for the boundaries of the board once it nears completion. Thanks for your kind words btw. I also think that in the end, once Larry will do something for the map design, our common results will help him tremendously in making a really good playing map this time, with very little flaws hopefully.
I must say to all of you guys that I will not continue on the map the next 20 days: I've got some really busy times ahead the coming 3 weeks. After that I'll have plenty of time again to work on the map.
(Also I have added topographics to it.)
I would like to change the sea-zones but have not had time to do that.
Lots of stuff that could be refined on this, but here I focus on creating occre-tone colours, testing out how impassable areas
could be coloured as well as the neutral countries.
Map Submission from Defiance
Thanks again Defiance for posting your map.
And yes, perhaps drop-shadows could be applied to the texts, as long as it is done in a way that gives an overall old feel to it.
I will experiment on that when I have time..

The file size is about 27 Mb when I make it an JPEG file. Is that sufficient to be able to send to your mailbox? Right now I'm not at home again, I'll contact you once I get home. You can post my maps on your website, I would really like that.
Eldar: Wow that's looks pretty cool. Now we have an ancient version of my map! I would like to see it with some country coloring! How do you do that with photoshop?
I gotta go now folks, will talk to you guys later!
if you have size limitation issues, perhaps consider a yahoo email account...
they have a generous 100 - 250 Meg server space...
id like to be able to visually share advancements with you folks here, as pictures say a thousand words, & in a format that im familiar with... your work will allow for that now, it is much appreciated...
its also shown in eldars, & your version, inspiration to get into photoshop...both have shown highly acceptable alternatives to making maps, well done !!
Please delete my last "guest"-post as it was supposed to look like this:
Here is a larger version of Defiance's map that I have played around with:
