    Hi guys,

    I've searched the net/youtube to no avail but am happy to be pointed to a resource I've missed if there is one.

    I'm trying to make some outdoor battlemaps for Fantasy Grounds. I have CC3+, City Designer and Dungeon Designer. My issue is with the basic grass bitmaps.

    If I start a fresh "Overland" map I can select some cool grass bitmaps for my base background. I really like simply, "Grassland_CA64". However I can't then find a way to add buildings to that approach - if I click on the "Dungeon Menu" button and then on the "Add Room" button it simply crashes CC3+ :(

    So I figure I'll simply start the battlemap as a Dungeon template. That works fine but the options for default background are a bit rubbish and I can't find the nice "Grassland_CA64" no matter where or how I look.

    Any advice on how to proceed? I'm especially interested in a CC3+ (plus addons) tutorial on battlemaps…

    Thanks!

    You can import fills from other styles by importing a file that already has the required fills as part of its template. So for example if you have a map with the right grass texture, you just import it, and then undo the import by pressing CTRL+Z. The fills don't get deleted. They stay imported.

    The menu item is: Draw~Insert file.

    Thanks. How do I use the "fills"?

    Sorry - I think I have figured it out. That's certainly a lot of help! Thanks!

    I could still really do with a video tutorial on making good outdoor battlemaps. Someone out there has to do one!! :)

    Have you checked out any of the tutorials available from the sticky resources thread at the top of the forum?

    Loopysue, I went and looked at the Tutorials and they are very helpful - thanks heaps for the pointer.

    Quenten, can you link them? I love that guy's videos but didn't find them?

    Thanks
