Skyland

Hello! I decided to have a go at making a classic floating islands style of map. I like how it turned out, but let me know what you think and give me some C&C. Cheers!

Re: Skyland

Problem with the shading, is it makes the islands look like splodges of paint as opposed to islands (which is the problem with just shading and highlighting edges). The island in the top corner seems pretty much pointless to me - hardly any room to do anything on it.

Re: Skyland

It needs more room on the right side for things and maybe a bit more airspace, it seems pretty left side favored.

That tree...
I don't know, but something about it bugs me.

You're just mad because it's the last and only tree.

Re: Skyland

What an ignorant statement.

I agree with Flummox, the problem is that the branches are ontop of the leaves, instead of the other way around.

Ever heard of a joke? or even a reference? Because that's what that was and because of that you're looking like the ignorant one here, or at least just rude.

Re: Skyland

Btw the mountain range looks a bit weird with the lighter colored mountains inside the larger colored ones, making it look like one big pillowshaded mountain instead of a mountain range.
Different silhouettes might solve that however, aswell as more overlapping.

Actually you're pretty much looking like the one at fault here, at least from my point of view.

Re: Skyland

On the contrary, I'm going to have to agree with him and think Lizzrd misinterpreted a pretty obvious throwaway joke comment

But either way, this discussion is stupid and you should stop having it

Re: Skyland

That sun is nice, but i think you should get rid of the shading on the islands. It generally reduces the playability and makes things a hassle to edit.

Re: Skyland

The shading was an experiment that didn't work out. My next maps won't feature it - at least, definitely not as strongly.

Re: Skyland

The island on the top right is fine, but it doesn't have enough space on the top. So I'd say either move it down or make the map taller
