    Help Need help with mountains in cd3

    I want to create a map of the large city that is the home base for my campaign.

    The city is boxed in to the north and east by mountains and to the west is a large river.
    Iíll try to include a ďveryĒ crude sketch. The only drawing tool I have her e is Paint as Iím working now.

    Iím going to use cc3 & cd3 for my map.

    Thnx to the great Tutorial of gandwarf (thnx Youíre great) Iím confident that I can the map of the city, but I have a few thing I donít know how to tackle as of yet.

    1. I want to place a few homes and the castle on the mountain, but I have no Idea of how to do this.
    I have tried to place several layers of terrain with the colour of stone atop of each other then use
    the bevel and blur sheet for depth, but that looks rather messy. Using the symbols of mountains is
    also not an option as placing homes on that would really look silly. So Iím looking for a way that
    looks good with the rest of the city.

    2. how do you create the roads for those homes.

    Yes Gandwarf that is exactly the effect I was looking for.

    could you indulge a Lay worschipper Into praying for the knowledge for its creation?

    I am at work right now, so I can't run CD3. However, I did explain how to create those cliffs here:

    Are those instructions enough or do you need something more?

    Oh, and please share any maps you create. I love to see other city maps, especially city maps created with CD3.
