Large Files, Heavy Details
I realized that the maps I post tend to be too large to fit properly on the forum. The problem is that I just like to use very large files in creating my maps. That way, I can do the details and then shrink it down, or crop out what I want if I want to make a map of a smaller area. In fact, the main file for my whole world map is about 5400 pixels wide. With smaller areas, like a city or building map, I like to do it at a ratio of a pixel per foot, or a regional map at a pixel per mile.
Does anyone else use files that large, or do you draw them out first and scan them?
