and for the fact there are hundreds of layers also always use folders and subfolders.

for example my main layer view on maps shows 8-10 folders. and inside each folder there are 1-10 other folders.
otherwise you go insane searching for something :lol:

Try using Gimp, you dont get layer folders, my maps begin to look a bit messy after awhile.

Talking about gimp, Rj any objections to me trying to convert this for gimp users if any are interested?

so RJ

we've talked it over and you're actually going to have to make a Hawaii map now

Either all the islands or just the main one is ok.

Amazing- I'm going to practice the gfx portion of mapmaking and needed a place to start- so perfect. I know nothing of .xml, but figure I could at least practice the pshop portion for now.

Bookmarked- if it's not stickied it sure as hell should be :D
