Gimp tutorial for creating Thirdwire-like maps.
I have always liked the Thridwire maps but have never been able to replicate them until now. This project all began when my computer crashed and I lost my copy of Adobe Photoshop. At that point I moved to Gimp and most of my discoveries of how to create maps was through trial and error.
This tutorial is possible due to two individuals who greatly contributed to this effort; namely Gerwin and Menrva.
Gerwin generously modified his TFDtool to produce overlays (512, 1024 and 2048) that can be used to create Thirdwire style maps.
Menrva created 3 master templates, any one of which can used in paint programs such as Paint.NET, GIMP, etc. to create the Thirdwire series maps.
This package contains 2x attachments; the tutorial [Final TW MapTutorial_v1] and the master template [IraqWA_PSD Layers]. The tutorial describes the procedures for building a Thridwire-like map using the master template.
This should ease your map-making.
