I've read quite a bit about CC3 and would like some advice. Years ago I purchased the original CC and sadly couldn't make heads nor tails of it. I plugged away for quite awhile before giving up on it completely. Now I know it made good maps, as I've seen some published, but it didn't work for me.

It seems like CC3 is much easier to use...plus, in the intervening span of years I've become pretty computer literate. My question is, how easy it CC3 to use? I realzie I'm asking a subjective question- easy compared to what? Let me say I have no CAD experience and while I'm a bit of a geek I lack the patience to spend weeks learning to make a simple island map.

One other question: at minimum, what add-ons are necessary if one's main aim is to product outdoor, campaign-type maps? We're talking islands, nations & continents. Initially I have no need for detailed city maps, although I'd probably upgrade to that eventually. Likewise, dungeon maps are not my priority at the moment.

Thanks for any advice you can offer.
