    Really cool maps (this and the other one)!

    I know someone said something about a tutorial in the other map's thread, but I'm wondering: was it lost when the forum moved from phpBB to vBulletin?

    I didn't see any link...which map's thread mentioned the tutorial or are you thinking of this one: [Award Winner] Eneini: a medieval city tutorial (in Photoshop)

    It wasn't posted as a Tutorial in the tutorial section, it was more a general explanation by HandsomeRob as to how he went about making his maps. Your best bet would be to do a search on the forums.

    There is a tutorial in the Conlanger.com journal, which can be found here: http://www.conlanger.com/issue5.pdf

    Hiya.

    I followed that tutorial HandsomeRob but had 2 issues.

    1.) When I go to save the grid layer... FT crashes.

    2.) When I save the relief layer, it turns out completely white (with both the land and sea being set to that color as per the tutorial) with no relief in the jpg. I see the relief in FT but not when I save it as a jpg.

    Two possible things come to mind. My PC is choking on the data with the grid layer. And, there's a checkbox somewhere else that will allow me to export the relief with any map I save. It could also be that we have different version. I have FT Pro 2.3.

    Anything you might suggest would be gladdly appreciated.

    You are running a much newer version than what I have (FT version 1.23). But maybe if you turned down the number of subdivisions on the grid, it wouldn't choke your computer. I don't know what to tell you about the relief not showing up. Perhaps there are others here who know FT better than I do.

    Sorry,
    Rob

    Hmmm... I'm not 100% certain what the issue there is, but I believe I have the same version of FT as you, so I'll take a look. I won't be back home until tomorrow, though

    Good luck working it out.

    Post Atlas Project Questions

    HandsomeRob - Like everybody else, WOW.

    With that said, what is your plan with this atlas project? Are you just designing a world for the fun of it or is there more to it?

    BTW, the style is fantastic. Reminds me very much of National Geographic (who I consider to be the best cartographer's in this world).

    Your maps are very well executed HandsomeRob, they look like something I can buy in a map shop. I'd like to see a Gantau map one day (although given how large the country is, the map for it will be huge). I also liked your city map of Jushalishuk, it had a very nice Bedouin/desert feel to it--I hope you decide to do other city maps as well.
