Hey, I got referred here from someone who said that you guys are a bunch of geeks who love making maps ;)

Well, I'm a amateur GM and game designer. I do make a few games, and so far, map making is the toughest bit. I could say that this map will have rivers here and a forest there and some cliffs and beaches, and a mountain range.. but what I try to make looks.. lame. Something like SimCity 2000-ish, with neat, blocky roads, or getting the proportion all wrong.

So, I've been considering coding a random map generator just to handle that work for the rest of my life. Nice that I found you guys, lol.

Anyway, how does it work around here? Do you guys do modern city maps? I do have at least two maps I'd like to do, possibly unpaid, and one is to help me better imagine a certain fantasy world :)

Welcome Aboard!

We get some modern and SF maps (lately this has been growing a bit), but fantasy is more the norm. But don't let that stop you - post up some of your work. We are always looking for new/different/etc. styles, ideas, etc.

If you build it, they will come. We're always trying to do more modern and sci-fi stuff as well as professional stuff so post em if ya got em and welcome.

Welcome to the Guild!.

I have 'occasionally' dabbled in the realm of Modern/Fantasy mapping, but don;w know of anything that would fulfill your question/desire.

Hah, yeah, the first thing I was working on is a simple modern town, for some game similar to X-Com Apocalypse.

Second is a new fantasy world, being built from the ground up, with a theme similar to the Southeast Asian island/jungles. Having a lot of trouble imagining that, and I'm sort of trying to built the countries' culture and economy and stuff based around what resources they have, and making a few conflicts around natural resources, as well as putting some big monsters in inhospitable places where people don't dare to tread.

Ooooh, I would like to see that map. X-Com Apocalypse is one of my favorite games ever. I need a sequel some time soon... the wait is killing me.
Why can't Take Two just make a sequel? WHY?
