    Yeah, Dutch Kills is a little triangle area between Astoria, Long Island City and Sunnyside. The local realtors have taken it upon themselves to re-designate our community as Astoria to push their listings because Astoria is *the* hotspot to live outside of Manhattan right now. I'm just trying to do a little "historical preservation" of a great neighborhood.

    If you don't mind me asking, where are you located now?

    Nowhere! I created it. I simply dragged a few artpack objects from dundjinni and dragged them onto the screen. I also created the Oil Lantern Glade from scratch too. Neither are very impressive.

    Yes it is! Since you are doing away with the WIP forums I will start it on its own respective forums. I guess city maps since that is the closest match in regional scope.

    Right now I am in Virignina for work, but I spend my time either in Southern California or Phoenix. In one week I will be in London getting the Led Out for the Led Zeppelin Reunion!

    Ah, ok. I was thinking you were trying to use that picture and add grass and such underneath it. Since you have the original symbols you can just rebuild it.

    If you still have Grimroots Grove saved, you can export it as a PNG and it will have a transparent background. Then it is very simple to just drop in a forest floor texture on a layer underneath it and you are good to go.
    Bill Stickers is innocent! It isn't Bill's fault that he was hanging out in the wrong place.

    Please make an effort to tag all threads. This will greatly enhance the usability of the forums.

    Yes, I meant those same threads; we have not done away with the WIP forum, we've just combined it with the others I look forward to seeing your post(s) there!

    Allow me to just echo the others and tell you that's an excellent idea. I did much the same with my first digital map, and I learned tons about both the tools and the art of mapmaking.

    We don't seem to have a whole lot of Dunjinni users here, though. I guess they're largely satisfied by their own (quite nice) forums.

    Without a doubt I will do this. I am a sponge for you map gods to toy with! LOL

    Your map is really coming along! I am impressed at the difference between where you started and where you are at now, in only 8 pages of message threads!

    Thank you; I was also quite pleased. There are a couple of bits that did not turn out quite as well as they might have, but overall I think I hit pretty close to the center of the target with it. Many thanks once again to everyone who gave their input on it, especially Jaerdaph for helping me through my early struggles with the software.

    Anyway, I'll do my best to make cogent comments for you, as was done for me.
