This should come in quite handy. Many thanks!
Just wanted to thank you for the great tutorial and providing me with knowledge to make my first map here at the guild!
1st city map thanks to pyrandon's tutorial.
I also followed this tutorial to make a map, and I write to thank pyrandon the author!
Just wanted to add my thanks for the tutorial. Also, while the mosaic filter in Photoshop is a good way to get a bunch of buildings, it does seem a bit too uniform. I was playing around a few days ago and discovered that with appropriate settings, the cracquelure filter works better. You end up with roughly square and rectangular shapes with grooves between them, which I imagine could be selected and deleted to reveal the road layer. I'm posting this on my iPhone at work, but when I get home and get some results I will post them here.
