Thread: Junior Cartographer - Post-Apocalyptic Maps

    Wip Junior Cartographer - Post-Apocalyptic Maps

    Hey all. I'm a newbie cartographer, and I use Microsoft Paint. I run forum games on a website called Junior Generals, and so far I've run three successful Post-Apocalyptic games, where each player would create a sizeable party of characters (called Factions), and work together to fight common foes or each other. Below I'll post the most recent map I've used, and I'll post the WIP one as well. I know that these cannot compare to the wondrous maps that you guys have posted on this site I will also include a WIP world map for an alternate-history game as well.

    I'm at work so I can't see your images. Our company blocks files from personal storage sites. When posting or editing in "advanced mode" there is a button further down the page called "Manage Attachments" that you'll need to use in order to post your maps using the forum's tools.

    Welcome Aboard!

    Very cool stuff, especially for using the abomination that is MS-Paint.
    There are a couple of other members here who also use MS-Paint with great results.

    Nothing to be ashamed of there...those are nice. I really like those city maps. Welcome to The Guild.

    Not bad at all, I like them.

    We have a few alternate history buffs here so you fit right in

    Thanks! Any of them into Cold War types of timelines? Or any Fallout series buffs?

    If you can do that with paint, imagine what you can do with Gimp or Photoshop...

    lol good Lord Gimp is so much different. Today will be the second time I've tried to learn and use Gimp. I've never been a fan of Photoshop - it's too complex for me.
