Excellent BD, most of use (except Micah and maybe a few others) would have left the outside white. I like this better and will do that the next time too ... hell, I will probably change some of my earlier maps now ... Thanks

Cool effect!

Excellent elevation effect, Drip! I'm going to have to steal that technique.

Speaking of the elevation effect of blurring the landscape, how was that done?

I have the Gimp and Paintshop Pro. Could I do this in either of those two programs, and if so, how. I'm a lightweight as far as details on these programs, so speak in small words if possible

Thanks, and GREAT work!

Your first question will take some explaining so I will answer the second first...

I have never used the Gimp or even heard of it, nor have I used paint shop pro. I use photoshop 7 almost exclusively for all my editing so the answer is I don't know.

How I did the effect was and please I'm a lousy teacher so forgive me:

1. Created the bottom floor completely.
2. Create the top floor exactly how you want it.
3. Remove the grid by painting a white wall everywhere you dont have floor. I think there is a tutorial on how to do it somewhere. This will make it easy when you import.
4. Open your favorite paint shop program. Again, I use photoshop.
5. Open up the first floor file and the second floor file simultaneously.
6. Use the magic wand tool to select all the white stuff around the floor in your second floor.
7. Make sure you have the layer not locked otherwise it won't be transparent.
8. Delete the white stuff you don't want around your floor. There may be white artifacts left over. Go through with the eraser and get rid of all that stuff.
9. Drag your second floor onto your first floor and match it up exactly. If you end up even being a little bit off, it will look stupid. If your second floor doesn't completely cover the first floor, A.K.A. You changed the shape of it like I did you can grab the stamp tool and clone the wall over where the first floor is showing. You can see on mine at the front door and on the long skinny room thats what I did and it looks just fine.
10. Now use the blur function to blur the first floor. I think I used a combination of blur more and motion blur. Don't blur it too much or it will just turn into a gob of goo. You want to still have some shape left. Then save it and Voila!
Phew! didn't realize it was that complex! So I guess the answer is if your program performs the effects I talked about then yes(And they are pretty standard in most phot editing programs I think)Hope that helps. Sorry I don't have any visuals or anything. I'm sure there are other ways to do it, but thats how I did it. Ok I am going to stop typing now. Really I am... No Seriously...
