This is rather obsolete, really. As there are much more descriptive and content-rich mapping tutorials out there. So...can you show me how to map a route?

Using this "method", I could create any map, but, I wouldn't know what to do if I wanted/needed a map without a certain element of what this tutorial covers.

Also, where is the part of your explaining Advance Map's functions?

Suggestions:
Make it more descriptive. Let it tell viewers how to map certain things, such as lakes, rivers, mountainous areas, etc. Add the Adv. Map functions thing, or delete it, whichever.

Overall Review:
It's all right, but extremely basic. You need descriptiveness.

Score: 3-4 out of 10.


I'm just giving constructive criticism, which is a bad rating designed to help you out.

Bah,i find it useful either ways.He told me that he is going to add "how to map a river,a lake etc." just what you told.But i believe this tutorial teaches you a mapping a convinient way of mapping,and its not for total noobs.

The basic functions of a map are in a spoiler,it is a very big section,and the tutorial would be very big(fo mapping tut) and unfriendly,so he hide the section with a spoiler.

Well first of all i don't think you are skilled enough in mapping to create a tutorial on it... Seeing as the map you posted is sort of a jumbled up fury.

People who have earned the respect as excellent mappers such as Disturbed, Styles, Master_Of_Puppets (he is new yet very very good), Haefele, and Neti. Some of whom have already released a tut.

I have to agree with RaiRai.

xD sorry, I was in a bit of a rush too post , just giving you a little push to maybe get yourself a little better and then spread yourself around. I remember seeing some great hackers blooming yet they did not even post for ages. Which a lot of the forums are just talk. *points up to scrapbox*
