Anyone else using Sketchup to create maps?
Title pretty much says it all. Id love to swap trade secrets with a fellow sketchup user.
I don't use it for making maps but I do use for some things. I've got a few posts about it and some basic building shapes in the Elements section. If I had more patience for doing structures then I'd use it a whole lot more. It's a lil clunky to get used to but so is most anything for that matter. I like it and find it fun to mess around with.
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.

That link is pretty cool thanks I might use some of those.
Heres a cool link for you: Look down this thread a little at a plugin called "protrude" now think of it as a random city map generator that you can customize or just luse it a as a base for something. Only takes a few seconds to create cool / believable maps in any case.
Theres quite a lot of people dabble with it here. Some use it for previs stages for a more authentic hand drawn render later. If you look at the CWBP location guide which is a link in my sig and look up Tile 7, Snapgallows then Seer and the FHCO did that in sketchup and made a real decent job of it.
