    Wip Terrain test for the World Of UBORA

    HI
    Just a test for Terrain. I'm looking for large scale mountains for continental topography. Don't mind the color this is for the shape and texture. I used photoshop and a tablet with a map of Spain for reference.
    To get the texture I used the tablet and pen and tried a pointillism style by tapping the pen on the tablet around the drawn in forms.

    I think it looks good. The coast is rather uniform but otherwise good job.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    I agree with Ascension, but since you said it's more about the mountains, it's all good.

    Ok Second Test. Better coast but not close to finished. This mountain test came out a bit better. I like the look but not the shading. Gona need to test a few colors to find one that fits. Once I find that and forrests, Grass and all the other details I can start on the main maps.

    I like this, it has a very satellite-atlas type feel to it.

    I think that the terrain has a good natural feel to it. I can't wait till I see some more!

    Thanks! Yes I was going for the Atlas style look. Once I get the physical features right I will build them into a collection of maps like HandsomRob did.

    OK Question for those who can help me.

    The world of UBORA is generated in FTPro. I just save the coast and do the land forms by hand. So, as all who use FTPro know, it has a bug in it that crashes the program when you try to save with a grid.
    I make maps from it using the Lambert Equal Area as it represents the area I'm mapping nicely with little distortion. But I need the Long and Lat lines.
    Any ideas on how I can make them? I use Photoshop CS2, Illustrator CS2. I also have Gimp and can get Inkscape in a pinch if that is easier.

    Send ProFantasy's tech support an e-mail with this problem. They should be able to point you at a beta version that does not have this problem.

    If you're not after a super high resolution version then taking a screenshot might be a short-term solution (Alt+PrintScreen saves the current window to the clipboard where you can paste it to other programs).
