    Map Fantasy Deckplans

    Is this the correct forum for seagoing vessels' deckplans? I'm guessing they're close enough to fit the category, but I'm a noob so apologies if I've guessed wrong

    I'll be doing some more of those soonish, so it might get the juices flowing to chat about methods.

    Example of one I did a couple of years ago for a groovy lil' eBook (Wallpaperized version, hence the left-side deep shading).

    I think plans, especially ship plans are a welcome addition to the site. This looks really good. Just my .02 but especially with plans I get frustrated not seeing the whole page. It's not artsy but something inside me says if I can't see it maybe I'm not understanding it.

    I agree. Anything you can post related to maps is fine. You also posted a starship deck floorplan in your original post. While modern/sci-fi is not quite my cup of tea, I know of many people here who would love to see more non fantasy style maps. And if you scale them(and give some type of permission of course) for use in virtual table tops such as Maptool, that would be even better.

    On the actual map you can see the whole thing just fine, I promise As noted, this is the wallpaperized version, so the left side is darkened for the sake of the desktop icons.

    Oh, I get that ... I'm just trying to figure out if this ("Building/Structure Mapping") is the correct forum for fantasy/low-tech ship deckplans, or if discussion of deckplan technique would be more appropriate in "General and Miscellaneous."

    Oh, I've found the SciFi/Modern Mapping forum, never fear

    They go like this: Show us the maps!

    Ships are structures, so it makes sense to me to put them here.

    Don't worry too much about posting in wrong forums. The CLs are pretty good about moving threads to where they should go if need be. That is just one of the reasons we are here. Keep things organized.
    Bill Stickers is innocent! It isn't Bill's fault that he was hanging out in the wrong place.

    Please make an effort to tag all threads. This will greatly enhance the usability of the forums.
