    I hate to necro a thread but this type of mountain looks interesting. I do have some questions for the author:

    1) Is this something you setup prior to mapping (a la CC3) or,

    2) something you add to an already existing map?

    3) Can you make this a pattern somehow to utilize LIKE CC3 in order to cut down the time involved in placing the mountains (such as using the stamp tool)?

    I am not one for taking shortcuts but my map is really big and it would be a big help if I could cut down the time even a little bit.

    I did create a few (3) mountains in several shades around the beginning of the year. here.

    I also started (and mostly completed but not totally) a map using this technique here. Eventually, when my life calms down, I hope to get back to both.

    Note that in my case, I prefer to full hand draw each and every individual mountain and hill( akes quite a long time) but made up a few symbols for others to use in case they prefer things like CC, fractal mapper, etc.
