Planning map question

Recommended Posts

as in, do you like the look of this map (see attached below)

 

I'm trying to diferentiate the nice green farmlands (as such)of Souther Europe (ok, Sicily & Italy) from the vast desert wasteland of north africa (ok Libya and Tunisia).

 

Or, should it be all one color, ie: the desert tan.

 

Opinions, please!

Actually, it kinda-sorta is. I'm reusing all the original tiles that came with it (by Deuces perhaps?), so Italy, Sicily, Sardinia and that other island are 'farm/mountain/sea/2whatever', and Libya Desert, Tunisa a combo of varioius farm, mountain and desert tiles. Did a LOT of hand tiling.

 

In theroy, one COULD import the WoE Germany tiles into the SF desert style TE via rebuilding the DesertTextureList, and retile Italy and Co to a much more European look. Although, it would be a more Central Europe look as opposed to a "Med" look. Other than the usual flaws in the Desert style tiles, I think the look is farily close (well, moderinish) to reality. I remember Canadair commenting on the Libya maps, that it looked pretty close to Real Life ™. As he's from Sicily (or at least has flown out of most of the airports there. --wonder if he's in Greece, fighting that fire near Athens???

 

So, the map look ok split like that?? (btw, that's just PM #1, and there's a few more airbases to add in Italy and Sicily) Them maps of sure are coming in handy!!
