    Post I did it! CC3+CD3 is ordered!

    They offer me to download hig res bitmaps. What are those and do I want them?
    They really got some fast servers, takes me 10mins to download both programs.

    The high res bitmaps are the symbols that will be placed on the maps you make. They are larger size files thus the question, but they have much higher resolution should you need it.

    Oh and congrats on the new software! I definitely look forward to seeing what you can do with it given your talents in PhotoShop.

    You'll have to wait 10 years or so before I'm as proficient with CC as I am with photoshop.
    I'll stick with the standard or draw my own for now then.
    Installing... right... now... It'll be a long night!

    Congrats Hoel. I expect at least a dozen city maps by tomorrow.
    Oh, and maybe we have to set up a fund for several people expressing interest in CC3/CD3, but who are broke

    Check out my City Designer 3 tutorials. See my fantasy (city) maps in this thread.

    I've finished the first part of your tut, but can't find the export button...
    Let's explore profrantasys help files...
    I like it and I'm beginning to understand better the amount of work that goes in to Gandwarfs maps.
    I've found a few features I'll explore a bit.. Using sheats to make multi leveled buildings and so on.
    Ok, questions for the pros now:
    -Using a bitmap as background.. possible?
    -How do i add textures. Mostly thinking roof textures. Is it just to put a .png in the right folder and selecting it in CD?
    -Where do i change the sun angle for the shadows?
    -Can i export the roofs+shadows in a transparent png?
    -Can i export just one sheat by just hiding the rest?

    My first impression of usability is to build a rough map with full effect roofs and exporting just roof sheat to use in raster maps.
    At least I'm having fun!

    AHA! First map with CD3, I hope you didn't expect miracles. This was made following the tut and without any planning.
    I solved that AA problem too:
    -Exported in 2x final res
    -Open in PS
    -Duplicate layer x2
    -On top layer: Smart blur with Edge only, radius 1, threshold 33 (fiddle with it until only the edges of the symbols and houses are visible
    -Select->color range white on that layer, then hide it and move down one layer
    -Feather selection 1px
    -Blur 0.5px
    -Deselect.
    -Done.
    -Compare to background layer.
    -Profit

    Lookin good. I expect that you'll be the first to figure out how to fix that overlapping shadow that the software does.
