    Almost done, I updated the dungeon today. Hopefully I'll get it done in the next day or so.

    I really like what you've got going on here but the giant shadow sort of dominates everything to me. Not sure what I'd do about that, though

    I agree, I havent found the right combination to do a shadow to make the map "dark" like a dungeon.... I'll keep trying though.

    Ok, so what exactly, are you trying to accomplish, and I will help you achieve the effect through manipulation of the sheet effects.

    I'm trying to make shadows on the entire map.... not like I currently have. (looks like it's a castle and the shadows are displaying that way.

    This is a dungeon, and should be dark (shadows all over the place, .... then I can add torches and their effects.) If you want me to send you the file, what email do you want me to send it too?

    to email me click on my name and choose email (should be able to attach I believe, if not I'll reply).

    At the moment I am reinstalling CC3 (did a laptop reimage two days ago, still reloading software), but if you want to make the map look dark (two dark and it is difficult for a GM to use), your best bet is to make a layer that covers the map as a whole and fill it black and then set transparency to say 75% or there abouts.

    Now, to NOT have this dark transperency show for the entire page (the white areas), your best method is to to make either the DARK TRANSPERENCY the same shape as the outer walls of the dungeon, or make a top sheet that is a multipoly with a 'hole' the same shap as the dungeon (this then 'covers' the area you wish to be white.
