Working on a few key locations for an adventure by MJD for Avenger Enterprises.
It takes place at Independence Spaceport - a partly underground urban and heavy industry complex on a low gravity world with a very thin atmosphere (like Mars).

Just some rough ideas sketched to help work out the details ...

A progress update ...

... a certain place (known for it's heat) will freeze over before I attempt to work with photographic images again. ;)

I like the look of this. Are you going to keep theses maps in gray-scale or are you going to color them?

Cheers,

I prefer greyscale, so these will stay greyscale.
The original images that I started with were compiled at 1 pixel = 1 foot.
Compiling them ino a multi kilometer image required steping down to greyscale and dropping the resolution.
Even so, I had to break the images into smaller pieces and then spend thirty hours of processing time stitching them together.
I would need better hardware to try this in color.

Nine million people is just too large of a city for learning to do this.
But thank you for the compliment.

Just for fun, here are a couple of the higher resolution building blocks that I made first:

One of the farm domes ...
44481

And a piece of the warehouse district ...
44482

For a sense of scale on all of the maps, the farm domes are about 1 kilometer in diameter.

Some filler to insert among the text:

The Main Passenger Terminal in the Cultural District ...
44750

The 'Star-Shipyard' ...
44751

Containerized Cargo Area in the Warehouse District ...
44752

(note that these are 2100x2100 pixel images that will probably be used at closer to 1000x1000 pixels in the final product).
