Question for the Tavern Folk - Mapmaker, Mapmaker, Make Me a Map...

Earlier today I posted a mini-review of the Other World Mapper mapping software. I personally think it rocks. I suspect I'll be playing with it for endless hours, creating decent (and less than decent) maps with it. It's all part of the learning process.

As everything created with the software is licensed for commercial use by default, would there be an interest in me releasing some of these maps into the "free to use commercially" realm of usage? I'm sure the initial ones will be utter crap, but time is on my side and I may get some skill after a few hundred hours of practice ;)

Just an idea. I'd hate to create a few dozen of these that just sit on my hard drive waiting on a project to match up with them...

As an aside, I'm working out some ideas to use one of +Dyson Logos ' free to use commercially maps in a crowdsourced type of project. I'll never match the master, so I need to find my own track :)

  1. Let me know what you think could be be still needed on OWM. I am the artist behind most of the artsets. I am actually still drawing some at the moment :)
