[nbos] [FM8] Free & Open City Block Symbol Presets Released
"Mark Oliva"
Tue Feb 2nd, 2010
The Vintyri (TM) Project has released a first free and open expansion pack
for the Fractal Mapper (TM) 8 version of the Vintyri Cartographic
Collection. It consists of 144 symbol presets that can be used to fill out
city blocks in towns and villages quickly on FM8 maps. The collection has
the same raster graphic quality as the individual symbols in the
cartographic collection. It was created in conjunction with our FM8 raster
mapping tutorial, which we hope to release before the end of this month.
The collection contains presets that can be edited directly in FM8, but it
contains no symbols as such. FM8 symbol presets have special abilities and
special limitations that normal symbols do not have. Therefore, we strongly
urge all interested users to download the free and open 26-page PDF that
accompanies this release before downloading the four ZIP files with symbol
presets. These ZIPs have a size of 40 to 50 MB each for a total of nearly
190 MB. Therefore, it would be helpful to understand these special
abilities and limitations before making the large downloads. To download
the illustrated and bookmarked PDF (3 MB) and the symbol presets, go to the
Cartographic Collection option at:


This material is released under the Open Game License version 1.0a. Please
note that because this set contains no JPG or PNG graphics, it cannot be
used with other mapping or graphical programs. It can be opened and edited
only with FM8.
