Apologies for the dismal rating, but I felt that you could have done more with this map.


I'd like to offer some constructive criticism here.

For starters, you should have used the smoothing tool to make the coastlines more attractive. I can understand not painting in the sand- it can be hard to make that look right across multiple continents- but still, I think a little more effort would have made a difference here. For the coastal sand I recommend the California palette.

Also on the subject of painting terrain, it's a better idea to use the 'mix' feature, which will give you better-looking varied terrain with the same required effort as regular terrain painting.

Additionally, you put palm trees in Scandinavia, which is puzzling.

Your diplomacy option was a great idea. It was a little clunky, but still a good option to give players. The camera work was also well-used, and you also did well in the overall shapes of the continents.



With a little extra work I think this map could be amazing! Best of luck to you if you decide to spruce it up. I'll update this rating to reflect any improved visuals.


edit- increased the rating as I felt that I didn't give you enough credit on some areas. For example, the map is well balanced and also quite accurate.
