Your First Map


Lesson 4: Mountains & Understanding Symbols

In this class you will learn the GOLDEN RULE of mapping... the 'top down' method when adding art to your map!

We also investigate the symbols catalogue of CC3+ and it's powerful features. 

Plus (+) gives you more options and 'R' randomises your selection. The T or terrain tool lets you draw terrains instead of symbols.

Next Steps 

  • Practise working from the top down to create a natural looking mountain range. 
  •  Start from the top row down, sweeping across the map and filling in the mountain range. 
  • Add some foothills, too.
