    Even with one eye only Wonko, I can assure you that your cartography is a wonderful job and much better than what I could accomplish with both of mine

    Ah CC3 - nice, nice; I use PF software myself, too. Have you looked at their diorama packs?

    And with the tiles, I'm curious, how are you printing them out (size, stock, borderless or trimming down) and does the white background detract from the overall result - or are you cutting everything to the SHAPE of the corridors and rooms?

    What I usually do is use PosteRazor to slice the map up into 8 1/2 x 11 pieces as a .pdf, smuggle them into work on a thumb drive, and then print them off. I tape all of the pieces together and then when playing, I cover undiscovered portions of the map with black construction paper, removing them as needed.

    Hah, what I do is open the files in Photoshop and send them full scale to my Canon IP8100 42 inch wide inkjet printer and print the maps at full scale, and if I am in the mood, then I also laminate them at full scale. I don't want to play with a taped together map monstrosity - I want one whole map. I've even printed a map at 42" x 10 feet long for one campaign battle.

    Yeah well, when I figure out what I can do with my workplace tools of the trade I'll get back to ya and then you'll be sorry you bragged,

    Well, at my workplace, I am the boss, so I won't get in trouble using 'company equipment'... also as a digital printer part of larger network of printers, I can get discounted prices for most any kind of printing, that which I can't handle myself. Not that anyone else couldn't do this, I work with many for printer only companies - they offer a lower price, so I can still resell them to a customer for a profit, but they only do services with other digital printers rather than working with direct customers like I do. Its not bragging... but a statement of fact...

    Well I'm the boss at mine as well but all I could really do with a map is waterlog it like I do my cell phones quite often, LOL. So when I said 'bragging' it was teasingly meant. Not that I'm not jealous of your fantastic printing equipment. I just have the printers of common men, hehe.

    PosteRazor works pretty well though, if you don't have access or money to get it printed out in large format.

    I know, just teasing you back! I use Poster Razor too, but for map publications for others to print as PDF products. But why limit my own maps for my games, I got the printers...
