Where do you guy's start?
Do you start with the terrain, the roads that connect things together, sketches, or what? I'm lacking inspiration completely.
I need to make a few different environments, desert, forest, plains, and ice.
I started with this for paths in a desert city top down view but dunno...
Another thought is just a linear town in a canyon.
What do you guys do to get inspired? One of my holdups is that it's going to be for kids so I need to keep it simple but well done.
I always start with the land/sea first. Then I do the land relief and waterways. Then come the details like the forest, hills, roads, cities and the rest of the stuff.
I always start with the terrain, unless it's a manmade continent or planet. Humankinds (Unless they're like the romans, or like some of Modern society.) constructions are based around the land around them.
