I vote for Otter.
The map is well mapped and I do not see any error in the map.
So this is the best map of these three.

Goon's map is definitely the most pleasing to the eye. The others look very crowded and are a bit harder to look at. Goon's may be the most simple, but ultimately is the most attractive and looks like a town that would actually be in a game.

Otter's map by miles! Great placement, houses, ect... And, the mountain's shape is really nice! So Otter I'm voting for you!! :D
And people, remember Goon's map only looks good because of the tiles, so you can't vote for him just because of that. It's the map itself that has to look good, not the tiles.

I'm going to have to disagree with you there. While the tiles compliment the snowy feeling nicely, the map itself is superb as well. I, personally, really like the layout of houses. The general concept behind the map makes it feel like a real Nintendo map. Though I could argue that the houses may be placed a little too far apart, you can't say that the map itself isn't of excellent quality.

It's good, but it's not better than Otter's map, as proven by the number of votes.

I know. I voted for Otter. I'm just saying that you can't claim that →goon's map isn't a very high quality map. If you like Otter's map, that's perfectly fine. Just don't go around making false claims about its opposition to sway voters.

Okay. But all I was just trying to say is that they should vote on the mapping not the tiles, because that's why it's called "map of the month". Clearly it should be about the mapping not the tiles, right?
Anyway, I guess my comment did sound a bit sway. :\

I definitely agree with you on the fact that my map is only that good because of the tiles and the mapping itself is a little mediocre to say the least. But seeing as this is a themed map of the month contest, you really do have to weigh the tiles in quite a bit. Tiles can really help to convey the theme more so then others.

Otter's map does it the best anyways.

*Sigh* There's nothing mediocre about that map at all. The only reason people think that is because the tiles are so good, so they are either looking for an excuse to downplay the map, or are just assuming that there's no way the map could look good with other tiles.

And tiles are as much a part of a map as any other, and should be taken into account, especially if the mapper made the tiles.

I voted for Otter's map. It looks like he did the most work and took the most time to make it nice.

All maps are nice though, it was very hard to choose just one map to vote for.
