Europe - GIGA map - FINISHED - Thanks to Deptusi!

I have started to design a GIGA sized Europe map for the "Hungarian History" campaign.
(don't worry! this is not for a single campaign map, but i will split it into 5-8 maps as battles were in different countries, the existing 2 maps are from this GIGA map)

So if you have time and want to learn how to build maps in the game, this is a good practice, and a great help to me!
(in the FAQ there is a text about how to create maps.)

The map shows the outline of Europe, the main rivers and lakes and the main mountains of Europe.
What is needed to do:
1. make all shores the nice shore tiles (even the rivers)
2. make all existing forest nicely cornered
3. make some more nice forests onto the plain areas

i think this is it.

See the map attached!

This map will not be put into game as a whole. This will be splitted up to many maps.

map of good will, even in full. it would be great if it will be on the tournaments. it would be nice as it is something to do in the game. on one map will meet 10-15 most active players. see,the battle will be for the whole summer,but I hope the winners will be given a reward. only amplifiers narabotalo . translate through Yandex translator. if there are error-sorry!

The giga map?

It is in the same status, i had no time to polish it.
If you could help, that would be awesome. Currently two campaign maps are based on this in the hungarian history section.

Alright. I'll get to work on it tommorow. Also, didnt you think to add layers? Like in warcraff3, where you had cliffs? That greatly helps in design.

You could find a cliff terrain texture in the Star Wars Project map section, when you want to take a look. But only the images, the system isn't implemented

Adding just cliffs into AoS would greatly improve maps, and add a lot of variations to look (Age od empires2 had basicly 3 types, clifs water ground and it was good nuff)

cliffs: yes, dust-n-steel did great tiles to the starwars version, i will try to put here also. (currently here is no such elevated tiles, however if you check the revolution maps (last few) you see how Kirk worked this around with the hills!)
Alright. I'll get to work on it tommorow
many thanks!

It could be actually great to be able to play for example England or Spain or Norway+Sweden just as maps. I'd love to play it a LOT! Just sugesstion, possibly i'll do it myself soon(TM) :)

You mean random maps? If so than:sure you can use this big map to start from! Cool!

Yes I mean, that it would be normal map(not campain) like "Norway" "England" "Nordic" I'll take care of it when I return, but I'd need to have hight layers. :/

maybe dust-n-steel will help us on the elevated grounds in AOS also - he/she seems to be a gifted in doing such things :)

Well, seems so. The only problem I see that it's all (probably) RPG maker basic tiles. It be amazing to have...our own tiles. I'll work on it today. (LIKE ON EVERYTHING ELSE, i'll come back home and do few hours of good work :D ---Even playing right now :D---
