Annual No 1 issue 12 - Making a new style.
I am going to attempt to design a new style for cities, based loosely on Watabou style, but with quite a few new drawtools. The style is called ABCM (stands for A Blank City Map = so it appears at the top of the city wizard template list). I have already made the Template, along with png and txt file. It will allow DXF's to be imported if you want to do a Watabou map, but it is not required.
The ones illustrated here are gatehouse, walls, towers, military buildings on top of gate houses etc, parks with fences, fences, palisades, dikes, swamps and bogs, sewers, orchards, grapevines, fields with automatic aligning furrows, hedge.
More to follow. More drawtools and vector symbols drawn by me!
I am torn between using only vector and no bitmaps, and perhaps Symbol fills for pavements etc. I have already used variable plain colours for houses and trees.
However, as I need 3 sheets if I use symbol fills, I will have to write a macro, and as @Monsen knows, I am rather inept at this. Pics to be posted tomorrow.
