What our customers are saying



3D Map your Ideas

The 3D maps of the 3D-Map-Generator-2 can have three isometric orientations, right, frontal or left. This is the big advantage, that all isometric icons can be used to design the map. The isometric 3D maps can now also be used to create or visualize game apps. Every shape can be used as a template, e.g. vector shapes, text layers or Smart Objects. No matter what size they are. Additionally there are 19 pre-built country vector shapes available. The 3D-Map-Generator-2 always generates a centered 3D-Map in a document of 300dpi. The output size oft he 3D-Map depends on the size of the template. Only the performance of your mac / pc dictates the limit!



You can add as many layers as you want to your basic 3D-Map. Every layer has a height of 10 pixels. There are 7 style presettings available which can be edited as often as you want. The structures of the side surfaces and the shadows can be regulated by the Global Light function. It creates impressive realistic effects. With the gravel and spume effects your 3D-Maps became even more detailed. They can be used as often as desired. Beside the presettings you can of course edit all map surfaces seperately. Theoretically there are over 630 style variants possible. Therefor there are 7 surfaces, 3 side surfaces and 10 layer styles available that can be mixed among each other.

With the Top-Layer-Designer you can add streets, paths, rivers or lakes in the right direction. For designing there are 3 different brushes and 6 styles available. The Top Layer you created once can be edited and extended as often as desired.

To design your 3D Map you can also choose between 20 additional icons. By combining, transforming and reflecting you can create your first impressive maps.

*country vector shapes: Australia, Brasil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Greece, India, Indonesia, Japan, Netherlands, Spain, Turkey, Poland, Russian, United Kingdom, USA, World

    Hi, Fantastic job man! I am testing it and when I Add Top Layer I get a "fatal error" but it let me go on anyway but.. if I edit the top layer I have to "hide" the grid to make it work else it comes with when I save. With or without grid, when I save the editing of the top layer it loses the given surface (gras, sandy ..). It becames a flat green like at begin. How can I solve it? Then.. When I create a 3d map I can add layerand make it thicker; is it possible to remove it later in case? One more question, how an I make a map with different surfaces? I need one that in the center is desertic. It no idea how to make it and keep work on it to put together to the rest. Thank a you a lot!!! Domes

    Hi Domes, thanks for purchasing :)

    Flat surface: The green layer is your original shape. The "grid" and your original shape are only for your better orientation. You must hide both layers before you save the top-layer. Please, have a look at the tutorials. The links you will find (only) in the instructions PDF. The tutorial name is " Top Layer Designer"

    Layer thickness: No, you can only add layer.

    Different Layer Surfaces: You can insert your own surfaces texture in the Top Layer Designer. Or you can use for the "desert" for example, the sand structure. Watch the video "Lake cross-section" of this: http://www.3d-map-generator.com/?page_id=15070 For "Different Layer Colors" please watch the tutorial.

    Hope this is helpful,
    mic

    Hi! That Generator looks great! I love how it worked v1 and the icons are awesome! I bought the Generator v.1 and some icons set ... I was wondering: 1- Is there any discount for buyers of v.1.0? 2- I would be really interested if in the future you plan a flat generator with flat icons (not isometric), more like a frontal view... Thanks! Dani

    Hi There! Thanks for this awesome tool! I seem to be having some problems with size. Before I use 3D Map generator, my image size is 1920 x 1080. (I intend to create a video in After Effects with camera zoom effect and export at full HD). My problem is that when I click "Right" and the map generates, it changes my image size. When I change the image size back to 1920 x 1080, the map stretches, even if I lock the layer. I would just like to increase my image size and have the background stretch out further to this larger size. Any help would be appreciated. :)

Recently updated today, however, when installing the generator extension, an error message shows the following message: The extension cannot be installed, it requires Photoshop versions in range of inclusively between 14.0 and 14.9.
