    Post New free and open cartographic collection

    This news is not old, but it's also not 100% new. However, we are new members here, so we're posting it for the first time. The Vintyri (TM) Project is in the process of releasing the free and open Vintyri Cartographic Collection under the Open Game License 1.0a. Being free and open means that it is available for both private and commercial use. The collection is being released in individual sets, each accompanied by a free, illustrated PDF. It is available in two versions, one with raster (bitmap) fills and symbols scaled for Fractal Mapper (TM) 8 and the other with raster objects and textures scaled for Dundjinni (TM). The first three sets are available for free download. They contain 128 fills/textures and 470 symbols/objects. About the same amount of material still is on the way along with an FM8 tutorial. The focal point of the collection rests with symbols and objects of structures based upon genuine European buildings of the Middle Ages. Each structure is available in varying roof styles. You can download this material free at the address in my signature.

    I haven't any idea what the catch is. But if you find one, let me know, and I'll see how we can get rid of it.

    In addition to everything the license allows, we also are open to issuing special licenses for things the license might not allow. If such a license were to be issued, it too would be at no charge. However, no one ever has asked for any such thing to date.

    Our project group has a German business license to avoid problems, but we are strictly non-commercial. Everything we do is free and open. We earn our money in other fields.

    Damn....Dunjinni and Fractal Mapper only. No CC3 love

    Can I download the symbols and extract, or do I need one of the above mentioned software to extract?
