Tao's Work

On the principal that as more people dislike me, it is clearly the time to provide more me to be hated, I've decided to launch another, less interesting blog. It can be found at this location, under the title Tao's Work. It will be less chatter that this blog, and include a lot of rough work in progress.

I'm not entirely happy with the color scheme at the moment, but heck ... it's an ongoing process.


Just a small video.  Huzzah - wrote 2,000+ words on the book today.  It's been a marvelous day.

I'm particularly interested in how you change scales when making a finer, more detailed map. Is is more sophisticated than simply copying, pasting, and redrawing?

I have used other map making programs in the past, but their learning curve was too steep for thE time I could put into it. I'm fairly familiar with MS products, so that will be easier for me to adapt what I have from paper to data.

Baron Opal,

The program publisher allows me to 'stretch' the former grouped objects of the original map overtop of a template that I've built; then the old hexes are removed physically and the features redrawn using the better tools the updated publisher offers; you can see a little of that on the video linked under the UPDATE on this post.

That is one of the best opening sentences I have ever read. Well done.
