You can then either post the url from the image site, or you can enclose the url in image tags (click on the Image button above and put the url into the box). Remember to use preview to make sure it's showing, and try not to have the image so big that it breaks the forum for everyone else.

Re: Beat The Champs Island Thread

Okay, here's how to post an image to the forums.

1. Upload your image to the internet. Emerson gives some good advice on how to put your island snapshot on the web with this tutorial. Remember that we need both the snapshot and the island XML file (that's the file you save when you're working in the editor) in order to really critique the island.

2. Find the URL of the image. This usually come in the form of http://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/images/9/91/Howto-ForumLogin2.png or something similar.

3. Past the URL into the body of your post.

4. Put [img-remove this-] at the front of the URL and [/img] after the URL. You should end up with something like this:
[img-remove this-]http://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/images/9/91/Howto-ForumLogin2.png[/img]
Make sure to include the square brackets ([ and ]) and to remove the "-remove this-" (that was only added to prevent the tag from working in this demonstration.)

4a. Alternately, you can hit the button marked "Image" above the post body (in-between the "Email" and "Code" buttons) and past in your image URL when asked.

5. Your Finished product should look like this:


6. Make sure to hit preview first and to make any changes necessary before hitting reply.

Also are island entries still being taken or is it over?

Re: Beat The Champs Island Thread

Not bad for a first try. It's a decent sized medium island but could stand to be a bit bigger, especially if you're going to try and pull off the "manicured lawn" look. . The overall shape is nice but you should remove the buildings and try to round off the coastline a bit more. In fact, this leads into my next tip: Hiding the Grid. I'm just going to quote an excellent post from Yngvild for this.

Ingvild wrote: 
Nemo asked me to post some tips here. Say you use white sand, dark sand and grass to throw down some regions:

The bounary on the right looks like part of an octagon, not very natural.Smooth it out and make it more curvy:

Now, the fine details. Find a similar color to one you are using that has differing spreading properties. Use that new tile to hide the underlying grid as much as possible:

Now do this for a bigger island. :)

Another example: using just two ground tiles, it is impossible to hide the grid. Here is a boundary between White Sand and Beach Pebbly:

You can see the underlying grid quite easily. In this case, the gravel is more "pushy" than the sand, having a larger footprint on the boundary. Now you need to find a third ground tile similar in color to one of these two tiles, but with different "pushiness". In this case, I knew that Solid Rock is less pushy than most anything and is similar in color to Beach Pebbly. Use it to round out the square corners on the boundary:


Also, you need to add support to the trees and rocks. Right now it looks like they're just floating on grass. Use a variety of the Country tiles to break up the monotony a bit and to make it look more realistic.

Keep at it. I look forward to seeing a revision.

Thank you for your help Fiddler.
More critique/comments/suggestions would be nice.
I think i might have a bit too much beach or too much beach of the same sand.
Also are entries still being taken?

Dude. If you don't realize yet that the web is founded on pretending to be someone else, you really need to stay off the net.

Re: Beat The Champs Island Thread

Then you my friend are SOL. The only option now is to obtain your own domain and host your files there. Of course, to do it online requires an e-mail address so I suggest looking in the yellow pages to find a hosting company located within your city, walk to their offices, and sign a contract in person so as to avoid giving them an e-mail address.
