  • Hmmm... I looked at the Atlas and thought I had spotted all of the paerts already selected. This is down by the south western end. The similar one I thought was up by the center of the continent.

    I remember Shessar's temple and will do my best to make sure it is noted if I go over to the east where it is located.

    Ah, I didn't do the toggle on the Atlas site.

    There is a penninsular area southwest of Dungroth I could work on. I'll post a png part as soon as my computer calms down and loads the fcw of the map.

    It's a bit difficult to spot, but I made it that way because the regular visitor wouldn't be interested in reserved areas, they would only want to browse the available maps.

    The Doriant map can be a bit heavy on the old CPU.

    Doing a shutdown so my computer won't have any effects from other software hanging around in memory. I'm really beginning to dislike Win 10 as it is currently trying to shut down and taking over 20 minutes to do it. Argh.

    More like over 45 minutes ago. Hopefully today. Sigh.
  • My windows computer is trying to shut down. Same happened on Friday. I did do a search and there seem to be bad patches. I'll have to wait and get win 7 next month. I have a spare computer i can install it on. I know about dual boot, but that not be a good idea with window 10.

    So, I may check in and read, but for the time being that is it. Later.

    Well, you certainly seem to attract computer issues. Hope you get this sorted soon.
  • Me too, on linux for now. It could be those times I glared at a computer and informed it I knew where the sledgehammer was stored. Bam ! I didn't hit any computers but there were times I felt it was a Very Good Idea[tm].

    How about this part of Doriant then ? Its on the east coast.

    (I can boot Win 10 in safe mode, make maps, and post them...)
  • MonsenMonsen 🖼️ 44 images Cartographer Administrator
    Hmm, a nice hot location very close to the equator, in stark contrast to the climate on the cold and weather-hardened island of the Forlorn Archipelago.

    I'll reserve it for you. Keep the scale in mind, those pieces of Doriant tends to look deceptively small. I see you have already figured out the scale though, so I assume you have the scale part well in hand.
  • I place a hollow square on the part I'm zooming into, and do a distance with ortho on.

    Oh, I got some actual help, and found out I did know how to turn updates off, and then got rid of KD4041676, and I'm back on my Win 10 computer.

    Hurrah !

    ( I was going to do a bit of Monty Python, but some of you all might think me a bit excentric allready.)
  • Hi Monsen, can you reserve me the area around Tartessos - to include them whole river valley and the two mountain ranges on either side.
  • MonsenMonsen 🖼️ 44 images Cartographer Administrator
    Sure thing. Your claim has been reserved.

    I'm having a tough time deleting nodes on the Doriant map. I am back on Windows 10. A patch on Win 10 was bad. Very bad.

    Anyway I know some of the bitmap fills from using list, but getting the map trimmed down is being a big pain.

    edit:

    thumps head on desk.

    It calms down faster if effects are off. Argh. Anyway, I am able to delete and move nodes now... some parts are being dificult though.

    If they haven't been yet claimed, I'd like to participate and do the islands of Puia Hanahana and Mate Ora on the Nga-Whenuatoto continent map (god, that's a mouthful!!!).
  • MonsenMonsen 🖼️ 44 images Cartographer Administrator
    Great. They're yours. Looking forward to see what you can do with them. Remember to keep the scale in mind. This is from a continental scale map, so they are not exactly small.
  • ScottAScottA Traveler
    Yes. I plan to put them on two separate maps so scale shouldn't be an issue.

  • I am not very good at buildings... so if someone wants to make an interior of the Old Wizard's Tower in the Silent Forest, please do so.

    I'll be making a Perspectives/Annual 66 dungeon to go under it.

    ( i o i o i o... well, my keyboard worked that time... Never mind, its okay now, I think.)
  • Can I have reserved for me the following areas. I am trying to map at least one area per continent. If someone else really wanted to do them, the of course i would gracefully give it up if I hadn't made a good start.
    Alarius: The Three Wizards.
    Berenur: The Caer Saes Region
    Doriant: The west coast of Dungroth (perhaps I might make it all Dungroth)
    Peredur: The central land of Trewithiel
    Malajuri: The Sanctuary Valley
    Nga-Whenuatoto: Port Digby
    I also note that the Continent c has been left out - perhaps you could appeal to some of our newer mappers, eg ScottA or pixelkitteh, to take it up if the present person doing it can no longer do so.

    I've reserved these for you. Since you didn't provide imagery, my reservations are only approximations, but I will change the areas to fit the final maps when you hand those in. Don't feel constrained by the exact areas I put up.

    Since we are not in a hurry, and there are lots of other areas to map around the world, I'll leave it up to Gathar to decide if he at any point wants to give up that map. I think it is important to not hurry people, I don't want 'Having plenty of time' to be a requirement to participate.
  • Thanks, and point noted

  • I have been looking at making several generic iso dungeons for the Atlas. Some small ones like a basement for a tower and some more elaborate ones. Would that be okay ?
  • MonsenMonsen 🖼️ 44 images Cartographer Administrator
    That's fine, but you should still identify a sensible location for them even if they are intended to be generic in nature, as without a location, there won't be anywhere to link them to.
  • Okay. I'll do that.
  • JimP, what about The Bleakness in the Forlorn Archipelago?
  • Have to do one for the wizards tower I'm almost done with. I could do one for there to.
  • There are also some ruins areas on Kraken Island, out in the plains east of Porto Mountains.
  • MonsenMonsen 🖼️ 44 images Cartographer Administrator
    You love putting ruins on your maps, so means there is always a good place to put a dungeon :)
  • I know that I'm still working on a couple of maps but would like to reserve three other areas.

    The holy Isle of Mona in south of Alarius
    The city of Citadel of the Soul Reaver in the Northern Scar
    The Village of Bryn in the Northern Scar

    Thanks!
  • MonsenMonsen 🖼️ 44 images Cartographer Administrator
    Great. They're all yours girl.
  • Posted By: MonsenYou love putting ruins on your maps, so means there is always a good place to put a dungeon :)
    Oh indeed, my players never cared for city adventures. So lots of places to adventure outside of the town walls.
