Hi all,

I just wanted to introduce myself to you all.
I have been a gamer for 35 years or so. Played D&D 2.0 and now 3.5, I've always done hand drawn maps... Now with CC2 & 3, I'm converting.

I have not yet drawn a map, but I do alot of Deck Plans using CC2 and now 3.

I have done a few dungeons, I am wanting to try making an over land map soon.

What programs do you all use?

Glad to meet you all!

If you need references, there is this set of blueprints around http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/Star_Trek_Blueprints which show up on ebay every now and then

I used to have them (12 sheets in a vinyl folder) but long since sold them (for far too little, I now suspect).

I have blueprints already, but thank you. I printed them and am using that as my reference.

I'm really liking DeckPlans.

I am also helping a friend of mine write a new SciFi mini / board / war game. I'm in charge of Planet Creation and making the Deckplans of the ships for the game. (course we need to still create the rules for ship design).

But it's fun!

Welcome to the Guild!.

If you have CC3 and the Annuals, they had a Ship Deck Plan addition in one of the annuals.
