    I think I may be able to do some Designs today, so Let's see where this leads.

    I succeeded after a little experimenting to create a inked Grid for Neatlines

    The trick is: you take the bad quality render from G.Projection, and make it as large you need, than make a selelction of the Neatlines, now carefully reduce the selected area by 1 pixel, again and again, till you reach the last position where all lines are still intact, than create a path, fill path with black, and stroke it with a grundgy 4 pix brush

    think you mean graticules i had tried this myself though the intersection between graticules was too 'fat' for my liking. shame i couldnt get rid of that as its a nice quick way of getting them done.

    Is there a way to get G-Projector to display just the longitude or latitude lines instead of both? If so, you could use your technique on two separate images and merge them. No more fat intersections. Probably not possible though. :\

    The new map is about 120cm x 160 cm 300dpi in size. It will be a huge map for sure

    Here is another Version with the Colorsheme established.

    The Lines are colored like a dark Ink with golden color particles. The True Seas and the Ocean of Sand are colored with a slight wash of Blue and Yellow. Also did I decided the Designelements on this map. The top will be a big Field with the name of the Map, Mapper and some small texts. The Corners of the rounded Map will get some inked decorations, with Cartuches left and right bottom. The most south Area will holds different text elements about the Imperium of Icath and its Borders, also Information about the Aliance of the Northern Freestates, and the other continents.
