November Entry: Simply Western
Not being able to compete with Gameprinter's artistry (and not wanting to let him go it alone this month) I took a different route.
Attached is a zip of a svg file created using Inkscape that contains enough elements to make a simple western map.
There are a number of layers, including one called symbols that has all the symbol sets and line types that can be dragged and stamped, or used in a "past style" mode.
I also included chunks for railroads and the rope that can be combined with paths using "Generate Path along Path" (That is how I made the RR lines and the rope around the title box).
Oh - here is an exported sample of the whole image (including the symbols and the map I made with them.) This is 100% Inkscape, no retouching.
I used the WildWest Normal font which you will need installed for the svg file to render them properly.
If anyone wants any of the symbols as png's just let me know.
