Very Nice Map Jaerdaph, clear and eye-catching. I really like it. Now, would you like to sign up for the Collaborative World Mapping Project now or would you like to attend a no-obligations presentation?
The internet! It\'ll never catch on.

I just wish the firm I'm working at now would let me install CC3 on my computer. I get extended periods of downtime before the crunch sets in again, and it would be nice to be able to do something besides twiddle my thumbs and surf the net.
I really like the bright, crisp colour scheme, jaedaph. I wonder with CC3 maps whether, as postwork it would be worth taking it into Gimp or Photoshop to get rid of the aliasing by giving it a one pixel blur. Must try it when I get home.
I didn't find a one pixel blur useful on my Vendria map. The features all looked great, but the only way I could get acceptable antialiasing for my text was to do the labeling in Corel Photopaint. Of course, my chosen font had very narrow lines, so that may have had quite a bit to do with it.
The aliasing issue is the biggest issue I have with CC3 at the moment. I like it for building terrain, but I think I'll continue doing my labeling and icons in a raster program.

Thanks everyone. This map is entirely CC3 work - I exported the JPG directly from CC3.
I've never liked how fonts look when exported from CC2 (and now CC3) either. I think I might start labeling my CC3 maps as post-work in another program like GIMP or Fireworks.
