    I agree. I use one simple rule with rivers: All rivers lead to a Sea or Ocean. On rare occasion they spill into a lake or heath with no outlet to the sea, but rarely.

    I am surprised the "River Police" did not jump this earlier

    Schwarzkreuz, you have some of the best raw talent of anyone I have seen on this website in awhile. You just need to learn a few tricks and methods that will fine tune that talent. Then you will be among the elite mappers here in no time. Cartography can be painstaking work, requiring infinite patience and discipline, well, at least if you want to be good it does.

    50 Hours? I have been working on the same map for 6 months!! I am a mess though and overly picky, I have redrawn sections multiple times, and I am still not happy.

    Well I have looked through the Atlas Maior of Blaeu. It was and still is realy Hardcore.

    @Ramah: I have seen all the Riverpolice stuff. I just dont get it how it should look like. I even read the tuts but still dont see how they should look like....

    But Actually I dont have real oceans, what looks like sea is impassable Sanddesserts on a lowground. But yes even so my Rivers are crap, I know, just not how to do them right. Hmmm, but well it is the redo of a map I develloped 15 years since started my first RPG-Group. I will stick to this from nostalgia reasons, but will redo it in a later attemp to clear out the rivers.

    Buy, the 2 Books edition from the Holland guy.... Dont remember the name, The Taschen Version is croped, so you can often not read teh names at all.

    http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Blaeu here are more or less the Maps of the Edition before the Atlas Maior Edition of ~1665

    Ok here is an Update again. I will go to bed now. The Mountains are slowly getting done. Only 3 mayor Mountain areas in the North left and two Islands. Rest is Landscape stuff which comes more easy, it will be terrain stuff like gras and stones etc. Ok, well than the next Giant step will be the Fonts and than the Border.

    I finaly finished the Landscapes and about to put the Fonts on it. I am also pretty much satisfied with the diversity of Landscape types but have found a lot of things I need to put more thinking into for later maps. Ok here are some new impressions on halfsize.

    Looks good. In the small-scale, the forests in the North East seem to have repeated patterns tho.

    It does look good. And VAST. But I agree, the forests look like they're home to the Endlessly Repeating Clone Pine, a vicious invasive species from Pinus IV in the Conifera Quadrant.
