Smudge Maintenance

I’m currently fixing the smudge so it will always be in the same place at all screen resolutions (well, at least most screen resolutions), so if you see two smudges or any other weirdness, that’s what’s going on. I’ll probably have it fixed within an hour, at which time the weirdness will cease. So don’t worry.

(Edit: the smudge has finally been fixed. My apologies to all of you with 1024px-wide screens who must have been wondering why I put that smudge in such a tacky location! XD)

Next to come will be a little something to spruce up the background in order to complete my original vision of the blog’s appearance.

Tyrian World Map

Whew, it’s been a while since I posted, hasn’t it? I’ll use the classic generic excuse that I was busy, and hopefully you can forgive me. I know, it’s pretty unoriginal compared to all the stuff I’m coming up with for Tyrian, but you’ll just have to bear with me. Stuff happens.

Anyway, today I went and drew up a pretty elaborate world map complete with different biomes and major rivers; the equator and the two tropic lines are also there if you look closely. I guess I could have done a little bit more, like adding mountains and whatnot, but for now I think it’s more than enough. I may put the mountains on another map, using the outline from this one as a base, though I don’t think I’m quite ready for a political map. I don’t have all the countries worked out yet. XD

So, there’s the world. (What a wonderful place!)

It probably will end up with more little tiny islands later, but I thought that was plenty. After all, islands are like pepper—you don’t want to go randomly shaking them all over everything and ruin the main course. And yes, there’s a tundra at the equator… you’re not imagining things. It’s the Artifices’ doing.

Feel free to use this as a desktop wallpaper, though it’ll probably work better if you tell Windows to put #a6a5ec behind it considering the irregular size. Or your favourite shade of indigo/violet. Whatever you like.
