World New Map - AomOrc 3.01

-- Title and image file
#dom2title AomOrc 3.01 - by Ballbarian
#imagefile AomOrc301.rgb
#domversion 300

#defaultmapzoom .75
#description "My second map with base image created in the Age of Mythology editor and some additions and modifications in GIMP.

259 provinces, 227 of these are land and 32 are under water.
Suitable for up to 10 land and 2 water players.
Map Version: 3.01"

This is a quick conversion of my Dom2 map over to Dom3. Really the biggest change is the utilization of the transparency made possible by converting it to the rgb format.

Disclaimer:
I am not sure how it will act if you use the random nation selection feature since there are only 2 valid starts for water nations and it sounds like the random assignment does not take this into account.

11/11/2007 - Updated to 3.01
Removed stray pixel & renumbered map file to accommodate.

If you find any missing neighbors or mislabeled provinces, please let me know. Enjoy.

Very cool map. I like the border colors. Im trying to get Dom3 to do that.

Dominions 3 supports transparency in TGA files. You just need to make a TGA format picture that has transparency in it.

I have not tried it with tga files. I took my existing tga map and converted it to rgb with GIMP. Then I removed the parts that I did not want to show simply by erasing them.

I currently have a couple of other projects in the pipe playing with the transparency as well. I think some really interesting maps can be done this way. Looking forward to seeing what people with real talent (Jason!) can do with it.
