  • WIP: Cartographer Guild May Challenge

    Thanks Sue. As I posted on the FB group, and as @Shessar said, the combination of CC3+ and its artwork make it a heck of a lot easier for us to produce maps without having to worry about also being 'artistic'. This style is great and you and all the other artists, as well as the CC3+ development team are to be commended on providing such a great tool.

  • some battle maps, 75' x 50'

    And here they are without the grid.

    same sizes.

    Very well done, and in such a limited time :)

    Ok Folks, this is as good as it's getting for the challenge. Undoubtedly there are numerous tweaks that could be made but I've simply run out of time. Feel free to use however you wish except commercially.

  • [wip] a star ship, my GURPS Space

    I learned that in order to map a part of a galaxy arm, I needed a spreadsheet to keep track of planet names and where I had put them. I had duplicated some without realizing it.

    There are plenty of planet types, base types, etc. to map things out. Here is my web site.

    Yeah, sorry about that. I thought I'd posted last night, and obviously didn't so I grabbed the image from the FB post but only got the preview image - I'm not very good with social media...

    @Loopysue Yes it will get some place names...

    For those of you into RPGs, which I believe is a high % of this audience😉, the northern jungle is home to 'primitive', cannablistic halflings; the southern wasteland is the home of orcs, the east and west coasts are settled by humans, while the mountains of the east are the realms of the dwarves. The tower in the crater belonged to the sorcerer who, according to legend, was responsible for the breaking of the continent...

  • [wip] a star ship, my GURPS Space

    A 900 pixel sub-sector map. Larger version in my gallery. The bright green line is a route for messenger ships. The G means 'gas giant' so star ships can scoop hydrogen for their Jump drive ( travel between solar systems). No sub-sector capital, nor any Navy bases.

    A further update. Water contours, labelling, a few minor tweaks (thanks @Loopysue ) and this all but done, well as done as it's going to get for the challenge.

  • Hot Water Recirculation shenanigans

    Oh heat transfer is elegant. :)

    As for the images, the second is the system prior to introducing recirculation to the vertical lines, so they are a bit un-related. In reality, the top schematics is representative of this:


    Basically it's a house from the Million Homes effort (of the 60's-70's) which was in desperate need of recirculation for the vertical lines to combat failing tap-water temperature. All in all, the total extent of the circulating hot water line was increased by 160%, by connecting the horisontal recirculation with the vertical lines by way of the pipe-in-pipe solution. The zero-loss coming from the vertical internal lines, combined with less straining outgoing temperature levels meant the overall energy loss increase was "only" 100%, but the per-meter loss went down by 20% so that's quite nice at least. Would have been nicer to go from separate vertical lines to the pipe-in-pipe solution, but it's a completely bonkers pre-oil-crisis system to begin with so bravo on them, I guess!

    Pretty much the only redeeming quality of the cursed thing is that it is a 4 storey building with 5 000 square meters worth of roof where they can put up solar panels.

    All great fun!

  • Too early for a CC4 wishlist thread, or is it timely?

    Other useful features might be Vertical and Horizontal rulers based on the dimensions input in the design wizard .
