Default Isle of Thrones revamp version

hi there!
i'm totally new in the world of dominions, just discovered the game a month ago.. but i was happy when i saw that it was easly modable, so i begin to make a few maps..

here is my first one..

it's a "revamp" version of ballbarian's Isle of Thrones.
a map i find very interestant strategicaly, but the old school hex style was a little bit too much for me, even if i can understand it has his charm

so i redid the map in two flavors, the first has a more "medieval cartography" look, and the second is a more "realistic" version..

feel free to use one or both of them if you like them..

i redid the .map file too, and i removed a lot of the "guardian" monster of the map, i just let some in the isle of the middle.. i take more pleasure to play this mal like that, but anyway, feel free to change that if you prefer the old version..

any comment/remark/suggestion/criticism is welcome!

WOW, great first post! I have played on a lot of Ballbarians maps, but this one looks like one I haven't seen. Looks great!

One small problem:

Line #10 says:
#imagefile IsleofThrones_real.tga
and should say:
> #imagefile isleofthrones_real.tga

This only affects the *nix crowd so you are %70 OK

These maps both look great to me! I'll let you know if I ever get a chance to check them out in-game.

Would it be possible to have the second one (more realistic) but with province borders?

Oh no! I was just about to down the puppy and play it, but it's gone! I suppose you're updating. I'll wait.
