    It should be on a layer of its own, clear around it. Ambitious undertaking as towns are the hardest things to do and my tuts aren't easy either...especially since it's just written and not totally done. I'll help ya as much as I can and so will (probably, hopefully) Coyotemax since he's been through it (and gotten a Feature Map award for it to boot).

    I guess so, can't really tell. As long as it's on its own layer with nothing else on it (like white background), then yes. The river builds up over successive layers and it's pretty subtle, some layers may seem to do nothing until it all comes together.

    Sorry, took me a bit to find this. The river was the fun part of the map, and ascension is completely correct - many layers come together for the river. I was confused a few times wondering what the layer was for, but just kept following, and it came together when it was supposed to. So absolutely, keep going with what you're doing

    Start up a thread under th city mapping section so you can post your progress and get tips as you go It's a lot easier to get fedback on things and make changes as you go rather than go back after it's all done to start making corrections.

    Started trying to follow this (using gimp); I knew that things wheren't going to translate over completely but I am working diligently. I see there are others trying to make a gimp conversion of this tut, any body got a working copy?


    Escelent tut by and by very indepth.

    Been playing with this for the October challenge and something, somewhere went south I think. It is difficult to know without reference pictures to compare with. I screenshot the whole thing so you could see the layer orders Ascension. Hopefully that helps diagnose the problem.

    The water texture is completely hidden. The bevel make it look like there's high, steep, muddy banks around all of the river, above the water level. I sense that they should be under the water and that the waves should be visible.

    I think it looks fine so far. The whitecaps and ripples come in a few more steps so keep going and see what happens.

    I have found that it is always handy to link your WIP thread here, in the tut thread so that others may look at what you are doing and maybe dicover ways of getting over their own stumbling blocks. Even more so if you are trying it out in a prog that the tut was not written for. I would also recomend that you make copious note on the conversions 'cause they will come in handy when you try other tuts for that other prog.

    so I've been handed a copy of photo shop 7.0, and I can't seem to get it to save the images in the zip as patterns, and I can't get it to load them for patterns...

    I tried saving them as patterns in gimp, but that doesn't seem to work either...
