I've recently purchased cc3 and started building custom maps for a couple of the season 2 expeditions. Anyone else building maps for use in FG?

This forum has some custom made maps, many of them quite spectacular: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?90-Maps

As long as the content of these maps doesn't violate copyright, why don't you share them with us? :)

That's the problem... Not sure how copyright law works... If I create the map using cc3 and symbols from the symbol set 4 dungeons of schley, would that infringe on copyright? The maps contain chairs and tables and lights and stairs... Ect....I'll post on the cc3 forums and see what they say... I would imagine the basic outline of the dungeons wouldn't be a problem but I don't know about what happens when I start detailing the rooms with the symbols I bought in the pack.

One of the cool things with CC3 is that they allow you to distribute, sell, etc. maps made with their products. The only restriction is if the "map" isn't actually a map but a symbols sheet or similar that provides someone with the base sumbols - which isn't the case with your maps. :) More info on the Profantasy site here: https://secure.profantasy.com/service/faq.asp#FAQ_commercial

From the ProFantasy license agreement (https://secure.profantasy.com/service/license.asp):



(i) Subject to the restrictions in section ii and iii, you may freely distribute the maps you create using OUR ARTWORK in CC3 format, but not the source image files (PNG and bitmap artwork) associated with them, and you may freely distribute flat files (for example BMP and PNG) exported from CC3 or third-party applications containing OUR ARTWORK. You may publish such maps for commercial gain.


So looks like you can freely distribute a map image made in CC3 and PF purchases, just not the files you used to make said map. You just can't say, make a map of all the symbols for the express purpose of cutting them out to reuse them.

Oh that's great news then... So there's no issue with me using all the artwork as long as it's a single image of the complete map. Nice.

Yep.

Here are some CC3 maps I've made and they're find being distributed due to Profantasy's generous licencing of their material: http://www.cartographersguild.com/album.php?u=23781

Here are the 5 maps i created for DDEX 2-3 Drowned tower... i left the doors off because i wanted to add them via tokens.. so when the players open the door i could replace it with open doors.

The last map is a little different looking because i upgraded to CC3+ and the Jon Roberts pack isnt available for it. Hopefully they get around to that soon.. i really liked the look of that pack.

Oh all the maps are set up to you can just click add grid and make a square 50 pixels in size and everything should line up

This is a map of the boar pit i made for DDEX2-4 Mayhem in the Earthspur Mines... I LOVED THIS MODULES.. the pit fight in my regular group was AMAZING.. came down to the wire.

same deal with this map.. its setup for 50 pixel square.
