    Default Starship deckplan/Cosmographer 3 tutorials?

    Can anyone point me to any tutorials for making starship deckplans (or any other space-related thing, e.g. a system or subsector map) using Cosmographer 3? I don't seem to have much luck finding any. Would prefer a youtube video that I can work along with, but a text-based one would also be good.

    Thanks!

    Don't know of any yet as Cosmographer 3 was just released

    Were there any for Cosmo 2? I'd guess that they'd still work fine with the new version wouldn't they?

    Nobody's even done one for the old Cosmographer? Heck, I'd settle for a sailing ship deckplan tutorial for CC3, it's probably the same idea...

    I'm sure there was one for making deckplans with Cosmographer 2 (I've been through it), it came with the software if I remember. Have you looked on the profantasy site or asked on the forums there?

    It's important to note that deck plans in Cosmographer 3 for CC3 work differently than they did in Cosmographer 2 for CC2 Pro. In Cos 2, different decks lived on different sheets within the same FCW file, but since sheet effects were introduced in CC3, Cos 3 deck plans now put different decks into different FCW files which are then linked together.

    I haven't seen any tutorials for Cos deck plans other than what is in the Tome of Ultimate Mapping (for CC2 Pro/Cos 2), and nothing for Cos 3 to date (the Cos 3 Essentials Guide PDF hasn't been released yet and CC3 Help doesn't have any Cos 3 support yet either).

    There was, however, an issue of the Cartographers Annual Volume 1 in August 2007 that features starship deck plans that work similar to what is now in Cos 3 and that includes a PDF tutorial on making deck plans.
