I had been working on a completely new map for my campaign world that I had hoped to post today. After finally getting a good fractal world map I zoomed in to do some detail work on the continent that I wanted to flesh out. Many diligent hours of mapping later there was an error and the program needed to close. Despite auto-saving every five minutes, my map opened as a giant black hole after this and was missing all the layers I had been working on. I do still have some earlier saves though, so all is not lost. I also have the raw output from the fractal terrain generator, so I will post some of those pictures for the time being instead.
This post kind of feels like a cop-out for my Workshop Wednesday, but I’m really bummed out that I lost hours of mapping time to some kind of software glitch. Maybe I will make up for it by posting something world related before next Wednesday, but right now I just want to punch holes in drywall and not think about maps.
