    Help Mapmaking request

    Hi, I'm new to the forum and me and some friends are trying to make a completly new RPG world called Seditio, I've gotten the CC2 program but all I managed to create was the coastlines, so I've got them in png and CC2 files, and now I wonder if someone could put in the stuff on the continents cause that program is way hard! =/

    Hi Jonah, and welcome to the board. You should take the time to learn CC2 (now that you've got it), it's not the easiest, but once you get used to it, it's quite powerful and comes with a lot of symbols. Try going through the worked examples in the manual.

    Alternatively you could try other software if CC2 doesn't work for you. Take a look on the boards here for examples of what different software can do.

    Good luck with your map!

    its really not that hard...just overwhelming if you try to do it all at once
    when you buy the software...

    just try one command at a time till you get the feel of it...

    SAVE your original map somewhere else while you experiment...

    wally
    if at first you dont succed, nuke it...

    yeah I've learned some of the tools, but it's just that we need the map pretty soon because it's needed for the placing of the races etc. and I'm not that kind of guy who learns an advanced program in 1 week

    Good point...hehehe yeah rush mapping isn't necessarily a good thing...I even doubt that anyone who would be willing to take on your request would be able to whip it out in one week...but I dunno...I would help out but I'm crazy busy at work this month...

    Hey, Jonah! Welcome!

    Maybe post what you have for your continent so far--or maybe even a scanned hand-drawn image. This may help entice someone into helping you out!

    PS: I'm with the others that you should gut through & learn the program; even though it may stink now, in the long run you'll be mega happy you can tweak, build, change things yourself!

    well it's not like that it has to be done in a week but sometime this month or the end of the month.

    here is the map so far:

    If you save your map as a JPEG or BMP you could take it into MS PAint, and just sketch (no need to be pretty) where you want mountians, hills, forests, major rivers, etc.

    If you also provide a copy of the map in a fsw (I believe that is CC's format), I could through some symbols and what not on it so you can see where they are etc.
