Hi. Hopefully this is the right place to post this. I'm developing a WWII strategy game, and I'm considering drawing my own maps for some of the battles the game will cover. This is similar to what I want, but it has a bit too much topographical information. The reason for drawing my own maps is two-fold: I can include only the terrain features that are important in my game, and I don't need to worry about copyright at all. I'm not much of an artist, but I am familiar with applications like paint.net and Gimp. Does anyone have any advice on how to start, or some tips on how to make maps that look authentic?
