Can somebody help me make a map out of a picture?

Postby merimac » Jun 7 2017, 23:17

I'm looking for a map like the medieval England, Anglo Saxon-period

I've attached a copy of the map, I just need the basic map as I would like to add towns, mines and dwelling on my own

Unfortunately, I have not gotten to that yet, but I thought you could do it with H4Util? I haven't tried it myself, but I know there are people on this forum who have done it before.

Cool! Did you just use the bigger brushes sizes to accomplish it?

Yeah, more or less - I brought in Ireland and Scotland aswell - A battle between Britain and the Danes - with heroes named from the tv-show "Last Kingdom"

3 teams - 1 with Danes (Extremely powerful), 2 with Brits (Where one of them tries to complete a mutony)
Danes are trapped but will be released after approx. 170 days or earlier if human player captures a town called Valhalla
The teams that tries to complete mutony is also trappedd, and will be released after 60 days or so...

So you have just about 2 months to gather an army strong enough to defend Britain against the Danes and the mutony

A map about Danes :D think I just might have to try it out.
Glad to hear you got the picture map working, otherwise a good guide has been posted on HC, but that seems obsolete now.
