View Full Version : Space Base Outpost

07-17-2008, 10:27 PM
I decided I needed a break from fantasy based maps so I started working on a space base/outpost idea. This is my rough outline. There is still a lot of work ahead of me.

I'm picturing this base on a Mars-like planet. The darker area at the top right corner represents a cliff/hill that the base is built into (I haven't finished that section yet). The smaller corridors that jut out of the circles will be airlocks (when finished). Like I said... It is a start. I still have a lot of work ahead of me. ;)

Nice... the first thing that jumped out at me tho was Starwars... Owen and Beru's place... that could be just me tho... starwars on the brain I guess. When do we get BlasterS??...

Come to think of it, I can see the Star Wars influence. Originally I was thinking more Space 1999. ;) I plan on adding much more detail to the map. At this point, it is just a bare skeleton of a map. I spent some time last night collecting various textures that could prove to be useful.

This is a very nice bit of work. Which software did you use to create it?

Thanks Craig. It isn't much yet. Just a start really (definitely a WIP). I drew it in Photoshop. I need to get back to this map but I currently have a few projects on my plate that need to be finished first.

This is nifty.
I hope you get back to it soon.

Thanks RumRogue. I haven't forgotten about this map (I was working on it just the other day) but I have several projects taking up my attention at the moment. I hope to post something soon. I have a few ideas I want to try out.

Finished that map after 3 years? Just curious!

Alas no. It was a casualty of when my old computer died. While I had 3/4 of my documents backed up, it wasn't one of them.

Do still draw scifi stuff?

Most of my time these days is spent doing fantasy based stuff but I do some sci-fi stuff here & there. For example, here's a link to some region maps I did for a Gamma World campaign I've been working on: http://paratime.ca/gamma/?p=211

Heh. Liobear. Classic. That Samson comic is the stuff Gamma World is made of. Thanks for sharing your site. I've got a couple of original GW maps from Famine in Far-Go I've redone...in my finished maps link if you're interested.
