Hi Rudd,

Many thanks for the welcome mate

Pity about the images, hopefully they come back soon or if anyone made a PDF shot of the page when images were there, would love to see it please.

Perhaps I'll contact Rhino and ask him, I see his sig says away till end of July. Will try then...

Can't connect to the server nor do I have the images backed up anywhere. Best hope is to wait a few days or until the end of the month and hope they come back online then if its either down to a server crash (most likley) or out of resources. Will move them off that server if it comes back online.

Does ANYONE have the lost files. I had them before but ive reinstalled windows and forgot to make a backup copy of these.

Would be great if someone could upload to filefront or something.

Rhino,

We can do without most of the pics, but this section right here:

Quote:
Step 5c: 1024x4 (4km²) sized maps.
This Step is for 1024x4 (4km²) sized maps, do it on maps. For this size you need to combined the 16 minimaps you have generated with my photoshop batch files (or you can do it by hand) and then any water on the map you will need to blend in. I'm also going to be using Qinling for this example instead of Muttrah.

With photoshop open (with also the Action files installed which you should have done in step 1), first you need to open up or crate a small file, any file will do as long as its open and then you need to do is go to "File>Automate>Batch..."


This will bring up a new window and you will want to set the settings to be the same as the pic below:

<blank / No pic>
.... relies on the photo in order to set up the PS action. Can you upload a new photo or just type the settings in text?

Cheers!

EDIT: Once I figured out where the 16 minimaps were being saved, I was able to figure the rest out. Here's a photo of the batch window, in case it helps anyone else.
