    Hello. My name is Dave McAlister and I run UK Role Players. I was pointed in the direction of this forum by ravells at a very fortuitous time as I'm about to start planning the next campaign I'm going to run and, with that, of course, maps.

    My plan is to use Fractal Mapper 8 for the external maps and Dundjinni for the internal maps. My planned campaign is set in the Caribbean during the Age of Piracy so the biggest map will be of the Caribbean itself. For this, I've got a image that I'm going to put into FM8 as a background and then, using the tablet and pen that I'm getting for my birthday at the end of the month , will re-draw it all (the reason for doing this is that the image I've got as too much detail for my liking so I'd like a simplified version).

    Aside from simple maps in Dundjinni I have no experience of map making so this will be a learning curve for me

    My chance to welcome you to this forum Dave!

    We have some FM8 mappers here and a larger number of Dunjinni users who will help you, I'm sure. Although we have a lot of tutorials on this site, I'm not sure if we have any FM8 or Dunjinni tutorials (not sure why that is?), but it's worth doing a search to see what turns up.

    The best way is to start a WIP thread and post your map up in stages, you'll get plenty of people giving you constructive advice about your map.

    Enjoy your stay at the forum!

    That map is excellent.. I can only hope that mine turns out to be as nice

    I'll certainly start a thread and post the various WIP versions.

    Hi Dave, Just remembered that in the guilds cooperative world the CWBP there are a set of tropical islands too. These maps are CC licensed so you should be able to nick these for your campaign. You can see a link in my sig to all the places in the CWBP and this is Map17.

    http://www.cartographersguild.com/sh...-Outer-Islands

    These maps were made by me with a script and if you want to just make the height maps for your islands (quite easy) then I can script run the full colour map from them and save you all the effort.
