    Very nice! What are you using for the cave floor fill, and the background?

    It was called bumbycavefloor and it was from the dundjinni site before it faded away. All the other textures are from SS2, except the cobwebs and a few crawlies, they all came from dundjinni site.

    Erdrix,

    Just thought you should know... the site may have faded, but the symbols and textures and bitmaps didn't. They are now all part of the Dundjinni Archives, which has been put together into a collection, and put out by the Vintyri Project. If you don't have the complete collection, you can go to the vintyri project's website, and get them there.

    I think there has been a re-emergence of the Dundjinni forum, if that's the site you mean. I saw it being discussed at Cartographer's Guild the other day, but I have to admit that I wasn't interested enough to bother going to find out it if was true.

    If it is, it probably has a new address and everything, so I don't expect any of the old links will work. Try searching for it online?

    I know, wasn't looking for realism, just wanted it to pop more.

    Shadows don't fit inside dungeons either, but yet most people still use them.

    Its much easier to see your maps on this forum ;)

    Over on the FB page you were asking about how to improve the map. I see that you have done stuff to it already with the rocks around the pond.

    I was starting to type a comment there when I lost my broadband for about 30 minutes, and since I can see everything better here...

    I was going to mention the two trees that are the same symbol and which look a bit false because they are the same. If you rotate one of them then the similarity will vanish.

    I was also going to say how the water looks a bit too blue... I'm assuming you are trying for realism here? If you look at aerial photos most fresh water bodies are quite dark greys and sometimes just look black. I'm not saying you should turn yours black, since people seem to expect water on maps to be automatically swimming pool blue, but its quite a glowing blue... or is that because its magical?

    Anyway. Those are just trifling details really. Its a great map, and I'm great at rambling on :P

    Took me moment to see the two identical trees. lol I thought I grabbed different trees, guess I clicked on the same one and didn't notice.

    I never really strive for realism. I just try to not have people's eyes bleed looking at it.

    The most thought I gave the water was that it wasn't sewage green I had used for some other maps. Though the pond is protected by a treant, so I guess I could explain it away with that.

    Or you could have the underlying rock and mineral deposits provide the colour, while glacial lakes can be blue to green at times as well (depends on the suspended materials in the water and the microscopic plants growing on them).
