This map was created for averykrouse (see this thread (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?t=3650) in the request forum) for his Brenham (http://brenham.wikia.org/) campaign setting.

This pretty much follows my normal style except for the cities, etc. which I decided to give a try at using graphics found in the CivFanatics creation forums.

It could probably use a bit more work, but the requester seemed quite happy with it and had already posted it to his site, so I think I'll leave it as is.

Hello, Steel General.

WOW! I can see that I have quite a ways to go before I can even HOPE to match the talent I am viewing hereat CG!

Your map is totally awesome! I am so very impressed with it. I love the way you've used "real world" placeholders for your villages, towns and notable landmarks. Very well done, indeed!

I am especially taken by your use of the graphics you found at CivFanatics. I shall have to check out that site to see if I can find similar grahics to use. I'm having the dickens of a time finding some good tree, mountain, flatland, farmland, etc. textures to use.

Thank you for sharing this jewel. It really is very nice and very well done.

Regards,

Gary

@Vandy - Thanks very much for your comments.

Regarding graphics, textures, etc. there are numerous sites out there that have excellent textures. Some of the ones I use often are Spiral Graphics (http://spiralgraphics.biz/) (they have a free viewer that lets you do some basic re-rendering) and CGTextures (http://www.cgtextures.com/). I beleive there is a thread full of links in the Mapping Resources area.

Which mod you get those icons from? I've only got 3 gigs of space left on my hard drive so I don't wanna DL a bunch of junk just to get to the good stuff.

I just pulled them from the Download Forums (http://forums.civfanatics.com/downloads.php), they've got things organized quite a bit better. That way I didn't have to download a whole mod to get what I wanted.

Guess I'll have to poke thru the forums some more. I generally use the Warhammer, Fall from Heaven, and Blue Marble mods for inspiration although there are some good sci-fi and WW2 mods.

I'm fairly sure at least one or two of those were in the Civ III Warhammer mod, I played that quite a bit.
