Rough Seas Theme

The Rough Seas Theme was created to add a unique, hand-drawn sketch look to your map. The theme settings include:

  • Water and ground colours
  • Water Appearance settings
  • Coastal, landmass and freshwater settings
  • Path and windrose and symbol custom colours
  • Label settings with City, Water and Country presets.

Along with this theme is packaged a number of map borders and boxes created to perfectly match the sketched look. Included with those is a small set of sketch styled squares to mark towns and cities on your map or map legend.

Installation Instructions

Manual Installation

  1. After you have downloaded the zipped file unzip it into an empty folder.
  2. You will have two new folders: ‘assets’ and ‘themes’. Locate your Wonderdraft assets folder.
  3. Copy the ‘jchunick-rough-seas’ folder located in ‘assets’ into your Wonderdraft assets folder.
  4. If you don’t have a ‘themes’ folder then copy the ‘themes’ folder to the same folder as your Wonderdraft assets folder. It does not go into ‘assets’ but at the same folder level as ‘assets’. Otherwise, if you do have a ‘themes’ folder, then just copy the ‘Rough Seas.wonderdraft_theme’ file into it.
  5. Launch Wonderdraft. You should have a new theme in the Themes dropdown, as well as the ‘jckunick-rough-seas’ asset in the Custom Assets list. It must be checkmarked to use.

Mythkeeper Installation

  1. After you have downloaded the zipped file, launch Mythkeeper.
  2. At the top, click on the ‘Install from local file’ icon. It should look like this: 
  3. A dialog window opens. Locate the downloaded, ‘Theme – Rough’ file and click on Open.
  4. An Installation Settings dialog appears. It will show the ‘jchunick-rough-seas’ asset and the ‘Rough Seas’ theme checkmarked. That’s fine. Ignore the rest of the message and click on the Install button.
  5. The new theme and assets should now be installed and you should see it in the Assets list. You are ready to use it now in Wonderdraft. Note: ensure that the asset is checkmarked in Wonderdraft.

Special Note: Water Appearance Settings
The theme does not allow for setting the Randomize Can Mirror option. By default it is set to ‘on’ but should be turned ‘off’ due to the orientation of the waves as they can otherwise randomly appear upside down.

    Sadly, the pack doesn’t work.
    When trying to apply the theme in wonderdraft, it says the textures are missing. Tried installing with Mythkeeper and manually.

    I am the creator of this pack. Please read the instructions for the Manual Installation in the Description if the Mythkeeper installation doesn’t work. I know that the manual steps work as I have many, many people using the pack without issue. The Mythkeeper installation has always been a ‘hit or miss’ because it doesn’t support the installation of Themes and since it’s not being developed any further there’s no simple way to pack the asset for a clean and “proper” installation.
