    Here are some of the maps I'm making for my Tunnels and Trolls site. The world map isn't finished.

    World map made in CC3, Cosmographer. The town and ruins maps are made in CC3+

    Added more to the world map. Added even more to the world map, Aug 16.

    The deep blue ocean can/could be a conduit for monsters and/or cold ocean currents. The few medium blue hexes could be sea ports, but no one lives there.

    So far, so good, Jim. I've never played T&T myself so I'm not familiar with any special map quirks, but they look good to me.

    Cheers,

    You may wish to change the coloration of that world map a little. The deep blue hexes are too blue compared to the other ocean hexes, making them look more like part of the landmass. Maybe make the not-so-deep ocean a little bit darker blue to get a better contrast between land and sea, that would make the map easier to read.

    Yeah, doing gradiants in hex mapping is difficult. I'll see what I can come up with.

    Finding a way to get the ocean to look better, when working with hexes, is a problem. I've tried different colors.

    For your Joker map why not lower the hex grid to below the buildings.

    Hadn't thought about that. I typically have symbols, then grid, then text.

    a very preliminary, just showing major locations, map of icosohedron point number 10 of the world map.

    The mountains, hills, and single trees are just place holders at this time. The single trees are actually forests. The volcano will be surrounded by other mountains, etc.

    I have gotten around to numbering the places in Jester for a town directory. Merchant Way in Jester East will be the stores selling to adventurers. Other than that, the Inn and Stables, and the two Tax Collectors, I haven't decided who lives in the rest. 90 areas/buildings total.

    Zagond and the area around this nation. Its just below point 2 and point 3 of the world map.

    Humans in Zogand. And dwarves, and a few trolls, in the mountains to their east.

    an update for triangle 10, The Rocks. Did I forget to name the oceans ? Yes, I did. Updating the world map in a bit.

    Oh yes :)

    I don't usually go a bundle on hex maps (and please don't take that personally), but this one is really quite attractive :)

    I like it too. I used to love it when they made those kind of maps for the Traveller game. Though this map looks far better than the ones I have seen for Traveller. Great job JimP :)

    Thanks. Haven't named the south polar ocean yet though.

    Except for one or two maps, I have been using Fractal Terrains 3 for my Traveller maps. Create a world, and it exports fcw and png in the Traveller style.
