that should help, thx guys. any requirement on the thickness of the lines. Just using the pencil, [which in paint.net has no size adjustment]is fine for roads? I looked at some of the games input map files and was wondering if there is limit per hex, like putting houses in, is the best way alot of dots in one hex or is there a limit. Tree's also, what happens if i'm doing a forest, can i color the whole hex or do i put a bunch of dots in a hex to make a forest and again is there a limit. What does changing the brush size do, give me more tree's. Thanks for your patience i've never tried to build a map before, like you couldn't tell. hope you don't mind the questions. The visual examples really helped.
