    Default This is the city...

    City-state of the Invicible Overlord. My skills are limited with sketchup but I have nonetheless been slowly building this as the whim strikes me. My inspiration for doing it was probably originated by the idea of thieves navigating the rooftops in some of the larger city blocks as they do their nightly B&E jobs and evade the constables. A few of the temples and such I've made efforts to add some details but mostly the effort so far has been to simply build an interesting 3d rooftop landscape by interpreting the original map.

    Oh and pay no attention to the big cone in the lower right corner. Call it a bold and tedious experiment that failed.

    Interesting! Do you have a link to the original map you're referencing?

    I have a Campaign Cartographer port of it that looks like this:

    Well, that's an older png and it looks better than that now. Otherwise working from 3 different copies - an original sepiatone printing, a b/w reprint, and the re-drawn/cleaned-up map from 2004.

    I'll have to see if I can find my old copy of the 2004 reprint, and if so, if I can scan it...

    My progress is stalled on this at the moment. Around the gate house you see in the foreground there nothing is fitting the way it should. Measurements are messed up and I haven't been able to figure out where. Just attempting to proceed from that point throws off everything else. There's probably a way to actually import the CC file which would save me an insane number of hours of work...

    Does CC have an export-to-image function? If so, then you can export your map to an image file, and use that as a Sketchup texture for the floor.
