View Full Version : Hi From an Old New Member

Looking back my join date is 8th May 2011 so I'm not really a new member in the traditional sense.

I joined after getting a copy of CC3. I was in the Army at the time though and as luck would have it all my stuff was boxed up a few weeks later and I was shipped half way around the world. No mapmaking for me then!

I've been back on Civvie St for a while now but between a full time job and university I've not had much spare time. On top of that my only Windows machine exploded a while back. I finally picked up a new machine just the other day, shoved all my software on it and I seem to spend most of my time messing around on CC3. I'm used to Photoshop (and GIMP) so using a CAD program is one hell of a learning curve but it seems like a great bit of software, it's a lot more powerful than I was expecting.

Although maps of all types are pretty cool, my main interest is fantasy. I used to DM but I really don't have time at the moment so I won't be creating copious player supplements. I have a few ideas for some supplemets for a few of the board games I play though and I also write fiction (badly) so maybe I'll make some maps for my own worlds. Of course I haven't produced anything above beginner standard yet so who knows what I'll end up doing.

I look forward to meeting you all on the forums.

EDIT: Actually it seems that I joined 5th August 2011 - damn me and my British way of reading dates.
