    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

    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?

    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.

    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.

    I like a challenge :) thanks very much!
