Here's a map I did for BastionLightbringer over on EN World's Free Map Request thread (http://www.enworld.org/showthread.php?t=221796). I used the Peter Fenlon style pack from the January 2008 Cartographer's Annual (http://sub.profantasy.com/2008/january08.html) and some of the symbols I created from the TrueType dingbat symbols font that comes with the AutoREALM program available here (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showpost.php?p=9730&postcount=7).

Very Nice Map Jaerdaph, clear and eye-catching. I really like it. Now, would you like to sign up for the Collaborative World Mapping Project now or would you like to attend a no-obligations presentation?;)

I really like the bright, crisp colour scheme, jaedaph. I wonder with CC3 maps whether, as postwork it would be worth taking it into Gimp or Photoshop to get rid of the aliasing by giving it a one pixel blur. Must try it when I get home.

I didn't find a one pixel blur useful on my Vendria map. The features all looked great, but the only way I could get acceptable antialiasing for my text was to do the labeling in Corel Photopaint. Of course, my chosen font had very narrow lines, so that may have had quite a bit to do with it.

The aliasing issue is the biggest issue I have with CC3 at the moment. I like it for building terrain, but I think I'll continue doing my labeling and icons in a raster program.

Thanks everyone. :) This map is entirely CC3 work - I exported the JPG directly from CC3.

I've never liked how fonts look when exported from CC2 (and now CC3) either. I think I might start labeling my CC3 maps as post-work in another program like GIMP or Fireworks.

Oh I so wish I could because I really like what you guys are doing, but alas as you all know I've been forced to making rare "guest" appearances of late. :( I'm also starting law school at night in the fall (on top of a full-time job),which is certain to eat up my remaining free time.

I just wish the firm I'm working at now would let me install CC3 on my computer. I get extended periods of downtime before the crunch sets in again, and it would be nice to be able to do something besides twiddle my thumbs and surf the net. :)

Hi b4dave, and welcome to the Guild!

It's called Gaeilge 1. It's a TrueType font that came packaged with the annual, but you can download it here:
