    Help Asking the more experienced mappers...

    I think you all kind of know that this is a love thing I'm doing on the side from actually writing the (horribly huge) universe, and I'm scratching my head over a thousand points, now that I've actually made some kind of progress. I have two major temptations and I'm not sure which is better.

    1. Map something easier and learn a few things before having to scrap my possibly most complicated map (High City) and redo it.

    2. Print this whole thing in black and white with minimal texture and draft in the major sectors of the city and see about going from there.

    Any ideas? Should I forge ahead or try working my way up?



    Thanks in advance for any suggestions, comments, or advice.

    Well, you can learn from your mistakes as well. But if you don't want to do multiple versions of your map I would suggest you start with something smaller. The first city I created was the capital of my world... I learnt a lot, but right now I am in the process of redoing it

    I would say do it in the hand-drawn style as those can be quicker to do (for me at least) than trying to do a cgi map...plus the eraser works faster as well. There are some awesome tuts here for doing it that way.
