    Some names appear to be missing their icons in the Southern portion: Magnesium, Fort Pale, Fort Fester, First Ward, and Fourth Ward.

    Your work in Adobe Illustrator is stunning, and convinces me that is the best program to use for hex maps. Vector graphics FTW, as they say.

    As a test for the site though, the map works.. and I guess this will be a test for the replies 🙂

      Welcome, Morfie!

      Thanks very much for the corrections. These maps of Bruce’s are so dense that it takes many hours to reproduce them — far longer than most of Mystara’s other maps. I was sure I had missed out something. I’ll fix them and update the map here later.

      Yes, Illustrator is absolutely king when it comes to hex maps. It’s not necessarily the fastest way, but it definitely gets the prettiest results. It is also very easy to go in and fix things after the fact, including palette and symbol changes across the map just by changing a single colour or symbol definition.
