gemini911 Where should I begin... well the water in your map looks unatural and most of you other resources does. There is no trees and the map needs much more work, you must try to put more time into your map. If you do not, then it comes out sloppy and random.
Snake115 agreed... simply agreed :S
Sir Ravenclaw I can see trees on the minimap, did the last 2 posters even download this map?

they obviously didnt ;S because i dont place trees in 1 corner as they spread fast...
Timballisto, try using smaller brush sizes - that's a good place to start. For example the patches of sea look like they were made using the biggest brush. If you use a smaller brush and make the edges more rounded, or more shore-like (try to imagine how a sea would look like when naturally shaped), it will look better. In general, blocky patches of anything don't look very pleasing to the eye. Unfortunately however, everything will naturally tend to look blocky simply because you're using a grid! Go figure eh!? So to make it look better and more natural you need to use the smaller brushes, maybe adjust heights and vary tiles a little. Next thing is to mesh resources. Like, after you have your little blob of iron, you make a few tiles of spread out iron around it, and you make fewer of them as you go away from the blob (it should only take about 3-5 tiles to transition from blob to land). Note that this is a general suggestion and shouldn't be used 100% of the time.
