I'm a new GM running an online game with Fantasy Grounds 2 and your maps are a godsend.  These are so awesome!  Can you suggest where I might find more work of even half this quality?

Thanks Gilbum, always happy to hear when someone enjoys using my maps for their games.

Some of the best places for maps are:  Dundjinni Forums (Maps and Tiles), Cartographer's Guild, RPGmapshare, and here at Deviant Art I like maps from jcarlhenderson, Hero339, Neyjour, MadCowChef and Max. 

Here are links to all of them:

I've been poking around at the Cartographer's Guild.  Man the world maps there are incredible.

Thanks for the links!

Howdy,

     I was a fan, and used your maps for taverns and spelljammer before I bought the program, but now I have Dundjinni, and I can't find anyone to ask questions of, and the forums won't let me, so please excuse the 'out of context' message type.  I'm a new Dundjinni user and I have some questions, do you know anyone I could ask?

Sure, Ask Me!
As long as they are not to technical.

I can upgrade your account so you can post, I just need to know what user name you registered under.

Thank you Bogie!

     I have been spending most of the week getting objects and items, we got this to do a castle "Great Stoney' from Dragon Magazine issue #86 (freegamemanuals.com/pdfrpg/) and our PC's have used this thing for years, and I promised we could actually let PC's do their rooms and such.  Big Cheers from most players.  Then the kids asked if I wanted a program for the drawing as I was going to use Excel. (no Joke)  I looked around, and liked Dundjinni best. Bought it without too much hesitation, but the store is closed, support is closed, and I was afraid I might be a few years too late to the party, and I saw your last post was from a couple months ago, and taadaah.  Here I am harassing you on your art page.  BTW, without exaggeration, your art largely convinced me it was the right program, I hope I can learn to use it that well.
     But the thing I never thought to look at was the map sizes; I assumed it would go as far as I drew, or as large as I made the paper size.  So I was trying to figure out how to do that.  I did a little more research after droppping you a note and found others did not get happy answers to that same question.  Although, they did say in ver 1.04 that they were planning to fix that for the next version and I am using 1.07.  Is there a way to make a biggerr sheet to draw on?  I'm not worried about printing.
Thanks again, and I'll see you on the forums.
Bob

Hi Bob,
I have upgraded your status so you can post.  Welcome to Dundjinni Forums!

Unfortunately you are correct, DJ's heyday was about 4 or 5 years ago.
Version 1.0.7 was created to get DJ to work on Vista.  Vista happened
right as they were in the middle of creating a whole new program, Dundjinni 2.
The expense of that programing delayed Ver. 2  and started the whole down
hill slide.  So, Dundjinni is a great program, but it's lifespan is limited thanks to
Microsoft's lack of concern for backward comparability.

Map size was going to be one of the big fixes with ver 2.  The current map size limit
is 32" x 40"    1" = 5' at 200 DPI 

If you wish to make larger maps, you have to make them in 2 pieces and edit them
together in a graphics program like GIMP or Photoshop.

That is what I did for this map  Twin Falls Fortress. 

Here is a link to the map on DJ, www.dundjinni.com/forums/forum…

The trick to making it seamless is to make one side of the map first ( let's say the right side ). 
When it is all done, save it, then use the area select tool set to ALL to select a vertical strip
one inch wide on the  left edge of the map.  Hit Ctrl C to copy that strip. 
Close that map and start a new one.
Paste that strip onto the right edge of the new map using ( ctrl P ) being careful that everything lines up.
Now make the left side of the map using that one inch strip as a starting point.
When you splice the 2 maps together, overlap the 2 identical edges and it will be seamless.

There are several posts about installation, read them first, and if you have problems
you can email me at Bogiemaps (at) Gmail.com
