    Default Greetings...

    Hi there. So I'm a pretty novice map maker but since I've agreed to DM a campaign I've set off to learn to make some awesome maps. It's taken some time to learn the ropes but I'm getting better. I seem to spend almost more time collecting mapping elements, resources, textures and references than I do mapping, but I still enjoy it.

    Anyway, I've lurked around for awhile, and decided its time to say hi. Hope to learn alot and to become a better map maker while I'm at it.

    C'ya guys around!

    Oh yeah, and I forgot. Quick question:

    My mapping liberary is currently over 1000 elements strong, most of which are pretty good quality. Resources collected from around the web, and even a few I've worked on to fit my own purposes better.

    So I'm wondering, if I found a way to pack them up, could I upload them and paste a link here for anyone who would want a fairly competent database of resources? Its over 120 megs ATM, and since the sources came from literally everywhere, I dont know exactly who made what, except that it wasnt me. None of it should be copy righted, I've just put them all in one spot.

    Welcome to the Guild. Sounds like you've got a pretty impressive library there. I would take a look in the Mapping Elements subforum and see if there's a thread there you could add your stuff to. If not, have at it and start a new one!

    Hey thanks for the warm welcomes!

    It may be delayed a bit, but I'll start zipping things up and posting them by the end of the week. I suffered a drive failure which left large portions of my storage damaged, including many of my maps. Fortunately, I actually keep backups of most of my completed work, so the finished products arnt lost.

    Going through my library, about 10-20% of it was either damaged or destroyed, my whole hard drive is like that (i'm amazed she even still boots!). I'm not sweatin it since I was going to do a rebuild sooner or later. Guess that just became the former.

    Soon as I can re-build it (shouldnt take terribly long) and verify its integrity I'll start zipping up various packets and go about uploading them.

    Any suggestions? Not sure I should be flooding any topics with over 1000 pics =P Even if its my own.
