    Thank you.

    Edit: BTW, I'm still working on Vyrn City but I can't work on it more than one hour straight, therefore I'm not making a lot of progress.

    Monsen, I am going to do a Mercator map of Nibirum, just for my pleasure, but will still offer it up to the community. I am having difficulty in working out the diameter - I get between 23,000 and 25,000. Do you know the dimensions it should be, so I can set the correct map size?
    And I am still working on my Artemisia projects, but I sometimes need a break from them

    Posted By: QuentenMonsen, I am going to do a Mercator map of Nibirum, just for my pleasure, but will still offer it up to the community.
    I have actually already been debating back and forth if that style would be a nice world map for the atlas. Sadly, I cane to the conclusion of no, simply because it required annual issues, and we really want everyone to be able to open the world map regardless of products owned (Also, it would be nice if the first map people opens showcases what you can do in just CC3+ too)
    I am kind of saddened about this, since I really love that style.
    Maybe we could offer it up as an alternate map or something though.

    The circumference of the world is 25000 miles..

    Just wanted to showcase Mercator, and as an alternative decorative map, not the main thing. I'll go ahead, and see what you think. I need a break from Stromphe and Spiros.

    I think this is an excellent idea as an alternative extra option.

    Quenten, it would be fun to see it as if drawn from the perspective of one of the leading civilizations too - so their capital would be at the "centre" of one hemisphere, not necessarily the "usual" view of Nibirum from the main "official" map!

    Sounds good to me as well.
  1.  
    What lgt file was used for the WORLD map?
    •  
      CommentAuthorMonsen
    • CommentTimeMay 16th 2017 edited
     
    The image is exported from the Gaia view, and if I remember correctly, the globe was exported using the texture climate from annual issue 60. lgt files have no impact on either of these.

    Edit: The CC3 map export was exported using the Default.lgt file.
  2.  
    Many thanks, Monsen. Just what I needed.

    Can I please put in a bid? :) For this area of Doriant-

    (EDIT: wanted to add that I had this idea about the island nation being too small and the people taking over some of the lands to the east hence why I picked such a strange area, that's the nearest fertile looking coastline to Ethra and that's where they would go!)

    ((EDIT EDIT: If it's not horribly greedy I'll grab that whole area under Qaras, where Anorica is I mean... (see second picture... ALLLLL of that...) If it's too much don't worry I'll stick to my original pick :) ))

    Consider the area yours.

    Keep the scale in mind though. It is easy to misjudge when just looking at the map isolated, but that piece is actually larger than a couple of the other continents, so keep this in mind when deciding what detail level to implement. Just the Island of Ethra is close to the size of the United Kingdom.

    Remy - may I please link to the first comment in this thread from the first comment in a thread I am just about to start over at the Guild, concerning the development of the City of Sanctuary?

    I'm going to show various extracts of parts of the city under development over at the Guild at full size, in a similar way to the thread I have started here. I think it might help to attract more attention from the several CC3 mappers floating about at the Guild who in some cases seem to be unaware that the PF forum even exists - never mind that there is a full blown Atlas project they can join.

    I will leave the link out until I am sure it is ok with everyone to do it that way.

    Remy, I have discussed this with JimP, and he is happy for me to proceed with a map of Fisher Island, the only island in the Forlorn archipelago left undone. It already has 1 regional map which would have to be linked to it by you. I have made good progress, and am using Ancient Realms annual, with icons. If you agree, I will post what I have done on the forum

    Hello, I want to make a bit for an overland map of this beautiful valley on the Alarius continent. As this will be my first map for the atlas I want to make shure that I understood everything right.

    1. I may use content (symbols, styles etc.) from all official ProFantasy products (annuals etc)
    2. Within the boundaries of the original map I may add details (towns, villages, temples etc.)
    3. Is it just making the map or am I allowed to add a small "setting" (tribes, religions, wars etc.)? If yes, of course with some written notes

    Thanks, Jensen

    1. Yes, as long as they are officially CC3+ compatible (no converting old stuff yourself)
    2. Yes. But please keep scale in mind when you populate your map. The valley itself is over 600 miles long, and the total area shown in your cutout above is about 750,000 square miles, i.e. the same size as the entire country of Mexico. At this scale, you are probably not realistically going to be seeing smaller settlements like villages and such, those are probably best saved for the next detail level based on a section of your map again.
      Of course, it is up to you exactly what to put in there, but I wanted to mention the scale because it is so easy to overlook this when looking at this nice "small" valley :)
      Also note, that in addition to put in structures like cities and such, feel free to change terrain features as is reasonable for a more detailed map. Not everything will be represented accurately on a low-detail continent map, so some refinement is expected (and encouraged) for the detail level map. The idea is to make it your own map, within the boundaries that this is still a believable detail section from the parent map.
    3. The main idea is to make the map, but if you want to detail it more, text can be added as a map note to your map (containing information about culture, history, religion, and whatever else you wish to describe), and also as a downloadable pdf. Just note that the map note is text-only, so keep that in mind before creating a nicely formatted document.



    I'll reserve that area for you.

    Hi Remy

    I'm having a few what you might call 'real life issues' right now, and Sanctuary is simply not happening. So instead of just hanging on to it forever and a day so that no one else can have a go at it, I'm going to admit that I just can't do it, and hand it back over.

    Please will you un-reserve Sanctuary City?

    Thank you - and I'm sorry, Lorelei. There's just no way I can do it.

    Remy - the symbols and fills I gave you - please will you leave them available for the rest of the world mappers, since that was always my intention.

    Thank you.

    Sorry to hear that Sue, I was looking forward to seeing your city.

    But if you are certain this is what you want to do, I will of course honor your wishes. But there are more than enough cities in Nibrium that needs mapping, so holding on to it doesn't really hurt the atlas project in any way.

    Thanks Remy :)

    Having it is prickling my conscience quite badly, since I know how unlikely it is to happen if its left to me to do. It could be years - 2 or 3 perhaps, and all the while the rest of the world will be growing, but Lorelei's continent will be missing one of its major cities.

    So - yes, please - if you would be so kind.

    Sorry again!

    Welcome to the project. The area is yours. Happy mapping :)

    Remember to keep the scale in mind, that continent is absolutely huge, and the area you have outlined, while only a tiny piece of it, is still nearly 600 by 500 miles. This is 300,000 square miles, or about the size of the country of Turkey, which should help you decide which kind of details would be visible in a map of this scale.

    For those wishing to download the entire atlas, you may wish to wait until I have added a few more of JimP's great perspective dungeon maps tomorrow, but it is to late for me to process more maps today.
