Proposed change to Alroth Tab Map
Posted 09 May 2019 - 04:45 PM
Trying for something that looks like a parchment map, but still has enough detail before you click on it to help make sure you have an idea of the continent overall and what map you'll be clicking on. I have gotten some feedback from several people while working on this and gotten positive responses so far.
I have two minor issues, the color of the boats and that snow just seems to white, but I think this is a good starting point for the next version.

However i'd still like the pathways to be slightly more visible

As for edges, I haven't plays with edge enhancement yet. Part of the reason for more color though is since the continent has to handle cities, swamps, forest, desert, and ice all in one image, leaviong more color then the Tab's do is intended to help there some.

You have to take into account that the era this map would have been drawn and coloured.
The map makers would not have had our resources we have today to actually take a picture of the continent. Nor would they have had the proper tools or paints to make it look more realistic.
Remember, this is drawn on paper by hand and from memory unless someone is actually travelling the continent and mapping it as they go.
Also, the colouring would have been what was available in the day.

The red is confusing as sometimes it is passable farmlands and sometimes impassable mountain, IMO lighten that red for farm lands and the mountains.
