Put this map together for a Call of Cthulhu game, based on an actual small town. Used the 1930s street map from the Annual as a base, Photoshop for the street names, effects and highway label.
All feedback gratefully received!
Not sure why you had to use Photoshop for any of this, as from the looks, the whole could have been achieved in CC3+ too. Appreciate that if you're more familiar with Photoshop, that could have been the reason though!
Regardless, nice-looking map. Not keen on the newcomer to town though...
I wound up using Photoshop largely because I was getting slowdown/partial redraws when trying to tweak the angles/positions of the custom PNGs and text (and they needed to be freeform rather than snap to grid, because of the tightness of some of the roads) - so it was pretty much a 'me and my PC thing', rather than a "CC thing".
I've continued the development of the town by starting on the saloon/hotel I added in O03. Ominously coffin-shaped (which makes for its own challenges)... I'm using the Dracula Dossier annual for this as I love the style and it seemed thematically appropriate. Wanted to make it clear that there was decking at the front of the place, so made a custom texture to represent planks while trying to keep in-theme with the (amazing) textures in the base style.
Interesting time to be thinking vampires/Dracula, as 2022's the centenary of the classic F W Murnau silent movie "Nosferatu", of course. Wikipedia link for movie in case anyone needs info/a reminder on this film.
