    Bring the map to life with life:



    I added:

    seagulls at the port
    A vulture or two in the middle
    a murder of crows at the main temple.
    small fish at the main port (i seriously doubt anyone will ever notice them)

    However subtle these are, they make a big difference in add movement and life to an otherwise unnaturally still map.

    After a lot of testing, playing around with cliff edges, painting more textures, etc i moved on to the no-go areas.

    Naming:

    I fell the "The Play things of the Gods" captures the theme well.

    I may take out "the" to keep the text easier to take in

    Photo mode.

    I took a load of photos with photo mode to capture some great shots that show off the map.

    Photoshop is used to add a title and a banner

    NO OTHER PHOTOSHOPPING will be done, the image is a photo from in-game and completely unaltered

    Photomode.

    Using the field of view is a great way to show more of the map than would normally be possible with the battle cam

    Ok, first of all outstanding details and prop placement. Great looking map and great idea behind it.







    Like in some my maps, it is far better to start as "defender" so AI attacker will move their forces around the place. Gameplay-wise you did good, there are some places here and there that you can use to your advantage.










    As for things that should be looked upon:
    - Deployment zones should be custom instead of being vanilla ones. Parts of the deployment zones go into water or no-go zones. Example:

    - Some visible land that should not be visible.


    - Is this the edge of Olympus? Maybe add some clouds there so it won't be so empty.
