    Hi. I am brand new to ProFantasy and Campaign Cartographer.

    I am very much interested in the Perspectives 3 add-on. I have discount coupons for Perspectives and a huge discount for one Annual until the end of May. I am soliciting opinions on whether the Herwin Wielink Isometric Dungeons style pack in volume 6 (2012) or the Perspective Buildings style pack in volume 7 (2013) would be a more useful addition.

    Since I am very new to CC I don't know its history. It looks to me as though Perspectives 3 might be a product inspired by Wielink's work therefore much of his Isometric Dungeon style pack might be included in Perspectives. Whereas the Perspective Buildings pack is a true addition to the Perspectives product. But that's just an out-of-my-hat guess.

    Opinions? Thanks in advance.

    I have made several Isometric dungeons under the Community Atlas, Desperate Caves. I used symbols form both the Iso and the Perspectives add-on.

    Desperate caves 4

    The Lost Mines of the Depserate Mountains

    more iso/perspective caves

    I hope that is enough for you to go on.

    edit: I am not a great mapper, and certainly cannot draw, but I hope you can see good maps can be turned out with this software.
    Jim, thank you for getting back to me. I appreciate your help. Your maps are impressive. I have a lot of work ahead of me coming up to speed. I followed several links embedded in your posts as well as those by some of your colleagues. All the isometric maps I saw were of dungeons. Has anyone done any 3D (Perspectives) outdoor battlemaps? My immediate interest is, say, an encounter in a steeply sloped ravine. I noted in one of your posts you mentioned a deserted village in a volcano caldera. That sounds like an outdoor setting. Have you tackled that yet?

    {Edit] I just jumped into the community project. I see a building in Forrestal Chapel. I'll keep exploring....

    Yes, Meralan City

    I couldn't get the city in the caldera to look good. I don't do battle maps. There is an Annual issue for Battlemaps, but I haven't made any.

    There are several battle map discusssions here, but I don't know which ones will fit what you are loking for. Just do a search at the top of the forums for 'battle map' ad you should see two pages of articles on that.

    Welcome Minty!

    You asked which annual would be better. The volume 6 Herwin Weilink is a nice one. It is a symbol based set using raster (,png) symbols. The Volume 7 perspective buildings uses all vector art but works with Perspectives 3 and is a great learning resource for how to create buildings.

    There are a few perspectives show and tells around that you might find interesting.
