I have made two carpets to fit down the middle - red and blue so that we can choose. I'd like to add some gold trim but not sure how yet. I am attaching the .jpgs; they are to scale. Notice how they look worn down the middle - very proud of that! Only problem is that I completely forgot to save the digital file and I never made any .pngs so the quality will not be great - basically the version uploaded here is the only version that exists now.

EDIT: added some gold trim.
And here is a balcony and some pillars, reused from other projects. I don't have Meshon's curving skills so it's a bit crappy; but it will do I think. The pillars and balcony will probably need to be recoloured once we settle on a scheme.
Everything combined to see what it looks like now. The shadows are a bit heavy-handed (this is only a quick try-out) and I recoloured Bogie's chairs really fast.
Meshon - I really like your walls. They looks kind of golden/wooden.
looking nice, the carpet is overlapping some features.
Yes I know aquaris - that's because the southern half of the map is just a mirrored copy.
Guys I have to work on a commission so I need to take a break from this for a while; still I think I have made us a good start. Meshon (or anyone) can you take over the reins? You can either work on the staircases (which really need to be widened to be 10-feet/2-squares wide I think) or else on either one of the two other floors:
2. upper seating level (boxes & balcony) & second backstage level
3. basement level and underworld
That's an awesome project.
I have a map going already but, then, I'd love to try and help out if I can...
Jacktannery, this is awesome and you've put in a rep-worthy amount of work already. I too have had to take a bit of a break but I will try to put some more time in soon. I'm hoping to find a solution to curving a border around the stage and then I will get the balcony flooring looking a bit more... aligned. I think I can use RobA's curved texture to overcome the problems I was having earlier! Yay for community building projects!
Ok great - If I recall correctly Anstett was not in a hurry for the theatre. I'm over here by the way for the next month or so: http://www.cartographersguild.com/vi...er-maps-6.html
There is a ton of progress already in just the first couple of days.
Thank you Jack, Meshon, Bogie and others who contributed ideas or pieces.
I will not be using these maps for a couple of months in my own campaign. I am happy to have something like this outthere for everyone to enjoy and modify for themselves.
