Welcome to CC3 Developer!


This is the introduction to my new blog dedicated to Campaign Cartographer (CC3) by ProFantasy Add-in development.

ProFantasy has produced a wonderful Game World Cartography product. Not just a single program, but an entire suite of add-ins that allow the user to draw just about anything map related.

The learning curve is a little steep, but just like with Photoshop, once you learn it, you have access to vasts amount of power.

Now I've written some "get started developing CC3 (and its predecessor CC2)" tutorials in the past. These are long, hand holding, filled with pictures tutorials and I plan on creating more in the future, but here I want to do the smaller howto type of posts that are the hallmark of blogging.

There is a vast API exposed for making CC3 Add-ins (also known as XP's) but, it is very lightly documented with zero examples. As I blog, I hope to expand the documentation of the API.

There are also other ways to automate and expand CC3. We will be looking at those from time to time as well.

So, sit back and enjoy the ride, as we delve into the world of CC3 programming!
