    Default Alvhem

    So I just can't stop playing around with CD3 at the moment. It's really funny and you can accomplish great things in quite a short timespan. So I decided to make a "real" map of a town called Alvhem from the Etrakien world. Suddenly everything mattered and the process took about three times the time than before. But it's great fun.

    The town is a small town situated about three miles (30 km) south of Ankh-Bathor just in the outskirts of a small forest.
    Everything is done in CD3 except the usual end effects (light, paperstructure, labeling) that I've made in PS.

    The town itself is of no importens but the size was adequate for a test of the B&W city style in a "live" map. Hope you like it.

    Yeah, you gotta love CD3. You can create a city in no time. As you know I like this black & white style.
    Check out my City Designer 3 tutorials. See my fantasy (city) maps in this thread.

    I've been thinking about getting CD3 just from your maps Clercon. Good stuff.

    Hello Carnifex. I do actually know that cause the name is taken from that place. My wives relatives comes from that area. There are actually quite a lot really cool names around Alvhem. I think you can find one or two more on my Ankh-Bathor land map.
