Gallifreyan i gone thru the links....but the problem is that the software used are mainly for games and are detailed.....is there any software where there are built in mountains and rivers and deserts....and u jus select and post them.....like in warcraft 2 map editor.....or tell me a software which can build a map like one built for shannara series by terry brooks.....many here are like lord of the rings type maps.....to much detail....to much time studying the tutorial....
u can look at the shannara map here
thnks for the links though
it sounds like you want something like Campaign Cartographer - it got a lot of predefinded map elements, but no matter what you choose you have to work for it - nothing comes without work
