As mentioned before, the background was to be faded. I decided to keep things simple by making it less detailed compared to the rest of the map. So I only used 3 tones of green and planned out a “formation of the bg so I complimented the rest of the level (below) "O" means Open.
Everything worked really well yet i felt something was missing. that was when Radhika added minor details to the map that really finished it off (below).
