I used google earth and photoshop to make a map of my city... Its a massive size map 24 inches by 72 inches. In photoshop i peiced together the map. I used a webbased hex grid generator to create a transparent grid for the map. I took the image and spit it through a posterprinter program (PosteRazor) for a multipage pdf. I printed it out on 8.5x11 inch white label paper and mounted it on 2 large sheets of foamcore.
the second part of the of the map didn't turn out exactly as i planned since a page or two went on crooked and is amplified towards the end... but all in all being that i live in a town called Belleville... Most around here refer it as Belle Vegas. I plan on printing out a bunch of pinups and such and put them on the white border around the edge of the map. my quest to get some of the locals to play crimson skies again is underway.. no one has played here for well over a decade. To play above familiar surroundings may just get them in the mood.
