Rough something out that come close conceptually to what you want, iron out the details for exactly what you want on it, then find an artist to make it a reality. I'm sure you can find someone skilled enough to pull off what you want for a reasonable price overseas online if you don't want to pay domestic rates.

Simply, and this is me talking, because I'm super lousy at it, "it's not the tool" that will get you the quality you want. It's someone with skill, and an eye. And either you have that, have the time to develop that, or you rent it.

I don't have an account there, nor do I gain anything if you hire someone there to make a map for you.

There are a number of folks at the Cartographers' Guild who make professional maps. I don't know what they charge.

Many CC3 maps look hand drawn; there are symbol sets specifically for the hand drawn look by third parties.

It's a pain to get right, but it's based off a professional CAD open source core, then extended for RPG mapping.
I may be misremembering (and can’t check right now) but didn’t our absent friend Mr Lee Lee use cc3 for the T5 adventure Cirque?

I know Greg did use CCx, but I cannot attest to his use in Cirque nor which version he used. I once got advice from him on using CC2.
