        I don’t have a video, but what work should for me is one: Having an idea of what I want before hand. A vertical mountain town or a riverside village.

        Two: If my mind is completely blank I map out the road/path and take things from there.

        Indrah had some mapping tutorials at one point I think, not sure if they're still around though, might search for them. My recommendation though is to look through the screenshots thread, find some maps you like and work on recreating them. Not to use in your game, but just to practice getting a feel for things like spacing, item placement, right amount of clutter, building construction, etc.

        @mlogan has it right! I always tell people to play Enelysion to get a feel for map composition as I think the maps are really great without the use of parallax. There are so many games with great mapping though - and the screenshot thread is great for feedback etc. (sometimes the feedback given to other people will flick a switch for you)
