    I am in no rush really to get it done, it's just for fun and like I said to celebrate!

    Where am I from originally? Good question. I am a USA citizen by birth, but have Irish, Norwegian (the part that shows), English, German, and (a small bit of) Mexican blood. Just call me "Swiss".:) It'll be my only citizenship once I turn 18 anyway, since I intend to ditch my US passport.

    (And as my avatar shows, I love the Alps!)

    Yes I do, in fact I think he uses one of my units for it. But I just want to do my own Switzerland, it's not that I have a problem with anyone else's Swiss civs. Heck, mine probably won't even be that good balance-wise, but what the heck!

    Hi regalman, could you do a map for the House Greyjoy of Pyke please? The map should cover the Iron Islands and there must be only Pyke for the city names. The Greyjoy's colors are black and yellow, their simbol is a kraken and they are pirates ( so no flowers :p ). This is an amazing example realized by Sukritact for the Tyrells
    Spoiler :
    Regarding the map dimensions, make it big so that i can use it also for the DoM without losing quality.

    I will spend more time on this 2-3 days as I want to make it look excellent like Sukritact does! :)

    I PM everyone the .dds and the full size image for the DOM, just a small preview for here

    Azande looks really nice too, I assume you drew the birds yourself, huh?
    Btw, I tried something with flowers. What do you think?

    flowers are nice, but they dont fit into the map very well as the petals have look... no drop shadow makes it hard to make them out individually. The map has a very "smooth" feel which is nice. Overall, it is flawless except the flowers. If you want, I can do the flowers.

    excellent work :)

    Yeah, the lack of drop shadow is pretty bothersome. If it isn't too much trouble for you, yeah, I would like to add your flowers make it look better. Gotta be a blue lotus like there, it is their national flower.

    I tried to put some Sinhala writing there but had a hard time finding images of writings on paper and such. Not really sure what else to put there, glad that you like it though. Can't say I didn't try to mimic some of your stuff.
    Thanks for the compliments.

    I'll send you the flowers via pm. Also can you send me the map so I can test it with the flowers.

    Regalman, I have another request. :blush:
    I would like a Japan map with 'Edo' instead of 'Tokyo', Kyoto and the Mikawa Province, please. Throw some shuriken and ninja-y stuff around too, the main focus of the mod is on Hattori Hanzo.

    Thank you!

    so Mikawa is the territory highlighted, or do you mean Tokugawa Japan is highlighted as well but Mikawa is in different colours?
