Does anybody have this? I need to get it back on my computer and it seems that their site is down (and all the alternative download sites link to their site directly so that's no good). If anyone does have it and could put it up on mediafire or something similar that would be awesome.

Yeah, we were pointed to that last year, many of us (including me) have this software. And yes, I noticed their site is down. Without permission from the developer, I don't know if its wise to post it up online - even though its free software.

PM me, and maybe I can get a copy for you.

Although it makes simple maps, it creates believeable street plan layouts. Its a great way to start on a city design. I wouldn't use its art directly in a map, mostly as a guide to the direction you might want to go.

Yea I used to have it for creating the alpha maps for photoshop city mapping. It is great for getting things started.

Ok I sent you that PM, hopefully we can work this out.

Cool! Thanks for the link, jaerdaph. I had this on my old system but it didn't make it to my new system - until now.

Well pooh! I downloaded it, but it uses a file that Terragen uses and has to update the file. Don't wanna chance screwing up Terragen. Bummer. But it's all good, still gonna take a look at it on the old system if it can handle it.

Oh, this is interesting. I don't have the patience to design cities, it could come in handy to make a base to paint over...

There is even a tut about making a city map in Photoshop (pyrandon's Medieval Town Map) here (http://www.cartographersguild.com/...ead.php?t=1150) that uses the RCMG as a starting point. I tried to follow the tut in Gimp with the thread here (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?t=4331&highlight=teston).

I like it for the starting point that it gives you. It might take a few tries to get a decent city to start with though.

I've used this generator as a starting point as well. Korash is spot on about taking a few tries before you find something that works. I also second pyrandon's Medieval Town Map tut (I should mention that Korash's GIMP tut is great as well, but I'm just used to using Photoshop :P).

While I find its road placement and street plan useful, the buildings are too spread apart for a realistic medieval city map, so I hardly find the app useful. Its a better app than many, but not helpful to my needs, so I never use it.
