Campaign Cartographer is CC, but
What is CC? (If you do not know click the

I started using Campaign Cartographer in the early
1990's having some limited experience with other CAD software as well as a
old style Pen Plotter that I salvaged from a friends back office. Thus
equipped, I went to work making maps fairly quickly. Initially I only
used the software to supplement an ongoing weekly RPG campaign for several
friends, but an occasion arose that required me to draw up some plans for
a small deck. This is when I truly began to see the power and potential of
this software that was priced around a top line Computer Game.
I discovered the CC Mail List shortly before Campaign
Cartographer 2 was
released. Its release was followed by the creation of the CC2 List, which
I have been a participant of along with several others relating to this
software. In the process of working on a long term project that has
already produced over 500 maps in addition to my own mapping that has
resulted in another 300 to 400 maps, many of them variants of earlier
I have discovered some buried commands and tricks to
using the more apparent commands of the software. I shared these with the
CC2 Mail List in an on again, off again series know as the Command of the
Week. Here you will find the return of the Command of the Week, updated to
cover the latest version
with some new and additional
The Tutorial Section contains techniques that I use for
specific features within my drawings. Most tutorials contain a
downloadable map showing the steps described in more detail. I encourage
everybody to develop their own style of mapping. Make use of what you
like, but make it your own.
The Mapping Hints section deals less with the use of
the software, and more with the actual maps drawn. Here you will also find
some ideals on managing your collection of maps.
Gallery contains limited images that I posted for one
reason or another. Included here are some 3D Apps Images created from Maps
Macros and Scripts is a storage site for Macros by
other CC Users and some of my own.

related products, I encourage you to join the CC Mail List currently
housed with Yahoo Groups. You can find a link to join the list at the web
