    I have reworked the Krava Continent, to include names instead of numbers, along with trade routes. I also reworked all the forests, rivers, and added notable large cities/towns that exist outside of a government. The attached file is large, 4 mbs!

    @Gandwarf

    I got sidetracked by this, but will do cromica here soon I am also trying to learn toponymy and conlang as well, on top of developing my site! So much to do, so little time

    Yah, I like the space that 3000x3000 can provide. Since these will be sliced up into 256x256 slices, I can make it larger with more detail I missed a few spots, and reworked them. I like this approach for future continents.

    I have to say I like everything but the tree/forest fill, it looks like upside-down 'Vs'. But I don't have any suggestions for you to change it so it's not that big a deal.

    Also your city/town symbols came down with a bad case of the 'jaggies'.

    Still a nice map though

    CC3 needs anti-aliasing
    It seems it made performance really, really bad.

    Those are gorgeous maps. I can't find the time to learn to use CC3, but if this is any indication of the cool stuff you can make with it, I might have to make time.

    One question: some of the borders are very ruler-straight. Is this because they're 'undefined' borders where exploration has petered out? If there's going to be other nations on the other side of those borders, it just seems odd that they would be so razor-straight, especially in one or two areas where they run close to a river.

    @Diamond

    Thanks! I really like Campaign Cartographer. It took a while to get used to the flow of it, especially the determine your action first, then select entities to invoke said action on approach. It seems backwards to me but they say that is how it is in the CAD world.

    I am going to rework the borders ,I would agree they seem stiff, I need to use the fractal tool for my borders.

    @Steel General

    I would agree they have are jaggy, I wonder if it is using the high resolution ones. I will need to check on that.

    Ok, I redid the borders. It wasnt actually that bad, I just went as if I was going to do a new border, hit e for edit, selected a starting node, then redrew the outline for a specific part. I am still new to CC3, but it continues to impress me. I think the fractalised borders seem to be a better fit.
