    When I first got CC, I was at a bit of a loss as to what to do with it. Then I finally (after some years of half-heartedly looking) found an affordable copy of Sir Banister Fletcher's A History of Architecture on the Comparative Method, for many years the standard work on the history of western architecture. And after digesting that and finding my feet with the software, I've embarked on a program of sharpening my skills and playing with unfamiliar options by drawing maps with CC based on some of the more interesting floor plans. On the off chance that it's useful to someone, here are the first and second maps (with a bit of commentary) from what I hope will be an ongoing effort.

    Very nice work, and a great way to learn CC3. A few years ago my father gave me a book on New York City brownstones, complete with floorplans. I've been meaning to do something similar with the drawings in that book. Here's a link to the most recent printing: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0847825221/ref=cm_cmu_pg__header

    Excellent stuff! I very much like historical maps as well as your style.

    The following symbols will help your Egyptian temple look... well... even more Egyptian ;-)

    Egyptian symbols I

    Egyptian symbols II

    Egyptian symbols III

    More great stuff, Iron Llama!

    And thanks for pointing out those Egyptian symbols, Mogul76. I love the Dundjinni community - they are so talented!
