So, i'm interested in doing a few mapping myself for a little game project i have.
It has a lot to do with Ultima Online so i figured the maps should be something like it as well.
Basically i wanna do something like this (
I don't think it has to have the same level of detailing, i'm more or less talking about the colors/style more than the zoom-in towns and so.
It could actualy be a little "prettier", the basics are being able to know whats a moutain, whats a city/surroudings/walls , whats a road, etc.

I don't know if i made any sense but if anyone knows of a tutorial to do this (photoshop would be great), or at least something close to it/resembling it, it'd be great!
Thanks in advance!!
