I doubt I will use this blog much, but as a place to store project notes and ideas I think I shall.
Over 30 years ago I developed a campaign world larger than Judges Guild or Greyhawk. Now I am trying to digitize these maps by redrawing them in gimp. No scans allowed! Huge project for just the world is the same size as the Earth, and I am starting there.
At the same time (more as a hobby effort) I am writing a book about my efforts to design the world, and digitize
Just recently I posted my map on a forum to see what others thought should be changed.
I'm going to have to change a lot....
The mountains aren't a big deal.
The Rivers however...
Wow. That is going to be a big project to do.
Also I'm looking for some way to make my map bigger, as to show more detail when zoomed in.
This way I can get the most out of every pixel.
Well, wish me luck. :\
I thought I'd set out my stall as far as TreeThing is concerned.
So... what's the plan?
Well, first, a little history. As many old-timers here might know, TreeThing started out as the "Automatic Forest Generator" and was programmed by Fluesopp. It was a very simple program that took a png image and covered the non-transparent areas with trees. He very kindly made it open source and I used this as a springboard to start developing the idea in greater detail
Hey there and welcome to Tumbleweed - an empty little part of the web that you are probably the first, and maybe only, person to visit.
I'll own up from the start - this will probably be updated infrequently. It is a little known fact (although known very well to my family) that I am an expert at starting things. Finishing them... not so much. But as I doubt there will be hordes of internet users hanging on my every word and desperate to find out what has been happening with me then
So, I have uploaded a few maps from my first D&D world. These were free-hand maps, as back in the middle 80s there was no mapping software available. I am in the process of learning Campaign Cartographer 3, and I hope to have something to show you all soon.
