    Tutorial [Award Winner] Town Map Tutorial

    I intended to do this quite a while ago but only got around to doing it now. I hope someone finds it useful. It is in PDF.

    *edit* Better quality version now attached.

    love it, kind of wondered how you did your work. Yes I still lurk, just no time to do mapping saddly. But I really wanted to comment on the fact that your "A dreary windswept town." looks very very familiar =D. Best remake of a UO city if I've ever seen one. Got any others?

    I wondered if someone would recognise that one. I do have a bunch of UO maps (some of which are here including the one of Skara Brae) I have done for my guild/alliance in a variety of styles including one I'm currently working on of all of Britannia. Most are of player towns though.

    haha those are great, never actually considered redoing those maps, even though, those were the reason I got into cartography... I take it your playing the OSI side of the game, saw the sketch of the new trade port thing on the Britannia map. Great stuff!

    Hey thanks for the tutorial Larb. I've only had a chance to look it over briefly but so far it looks really good.

    Cheers,

    Quick question: How do I go about replacing the PDF with a better one? There's a few typos and stuff still in there and also some of the images are a bit fuzzy. I fixed them and improved the image quality a bit. Indesign can be a bit funky with any options outside of high quality pdf to print which is superhuge file size.

    So I just want to replace the one above.

    Go to the advanced editing options, click on the "attachments" icon, and then click on the "X" for the pdf attachment. Then just upload the new version. That should do it.
