    I'm getting ready to map a world map for my campaign. I've got a sketch of the main contenent that my adventures will be on. Other landmasses are not as critical in their size and shape.

    My question is, is there a setting for a new map in CC3 that is designed for world-scale maps?

    I recently got a copy of Fractal Terrains and was going to use that but it only exports to CC2 and that's not the style I want at all. Is there an option to export to CC3 styles?

    It may export to CC2 but you can open those maps in CC3. I have only done this with a Line style of the coasts only.

    oh yes, I can open it, that's no problem. I was just hoping it could be exported to a different style than the contoured CC2 style.
  2.  
    Oh, well even with CC2 I made a special export style that only exported a line drawing of the Coasts, Rivers and Lakes. Then I would explode it and move the coasts, rivers and lakes to their respected Layers and sheets and start from there.

    is that just creating a specfic style? how did you get FT to export to that style? I don't recall FT giving an option other than 'Export to CC2'.

    • Go to Save CC2 File

    • Create

    • Unselect Temperature Contours, Rainfall Contours and Climate Contours

    • Click Next

    • Under Contour Settings unselect both Draw Filled Colours and Draw Contour Outline

    • Keep the Coast line selected

    • Click Next

    • Select YOUR preference of detail

    • Click Next

    • I normally only select the border

    • Click Next

    • Name your style Like Lined etc.

    • Now save as a CC2


    You may have to play with the settings, it has been months since I've done this and a reformat of my harddrive also since I've done this, so my original settings are lost.

    • Next open with CC3

    • You may have to explode then place them in the proper Sheets and layers.


    If your using a large scale campaign world this is a great way of making maps from different areas and keeping the scale proper
