Re: Is this how "new map from area" is supposed to work?

I've started the next level of detail in my mapping, and want to work on regions instead of the whole continent. I used the "new map from area" to make a new file. I was trying to get the grid on the new map to match the scale of the whole map, and noticed the dimensions of the map were set at a sm...

So, how is the status on this feature? I thought I‘d ask you after a couple months :)
Engine changes are finished, UI changes designed and "approved" but not done yet. 50/50 if it makes it to the next release. Really hoping we can get it in...

Re: Difference between different tension inputs?

I am playing around with the Fractal tool for drawing overland continents, and in playing around with the Fractal tool and entering in different inputs/numbers for tension, I am not able to tell the difference between, say a continent drawn with 50 tension, compared to 100 tension. Maybe my eyesigh...

Re: Greetings From America

For sharing it/showing it at a con, I'd have to add some stuff before I think it'd be completely presentable if that's fine. Definitely, that's why we ask for permission :). What we did last year was print them and have a sign saying "Maps from our users". Keep in mind our first con this year proba...

Re: Greetings From America

Here is the current revision of my book series' map (Currently on the 7th iteration, as it's still not finished)! https://imgur.com/XJcH7ng I'm honestly really proud of the amount of work I put into that map. I hand-placed every single feature for the best aesthetic and there's over 1600 (There are...

Re: Greetings From America

I know I've necro'd a couple of threads, but this is my own thread, haha. I'm not sure what happened to the imgur images I had linked to the maps I made in the OP, but I've gone and made new ones and edited the post since this apparently has over 1,000 views over the year. :lol: No problem! Glad to...

Re: Merging Dungeon Walls?

Since it's the end of the year, how close are we to finally getting this? I've been getting into dungeon map creation, and it's by far the most annoying part :lol: Got it partially working, but I'm not happy with it enough to be included with our next release. The way it's looking the January relea...

Re: Before I buy, I'd like to ask about a few features....

Even after watching and rewatching Katie's video (the segment covering New from Area), I am still having difficulty. What is the easiest way to get the x coordinate and y coordinate to get the rectangle over the right area? Hover my cursor over the spot where I want the rectangle corners to be, and...

Re: Before I buy, I'd like to ask about a few features....

Since I'm a newbie and I'm still using the demo version of OWM, I decided to post my question here, in this thread. :) How can I create a local or regional map from a selected area within a continent? I tried using the Region Tool under Overland Tools, but then when I select the region and transfer...
