    Info New approach

    I couldn't get the inspiration to continue on the previous draft, so I started with something new. Still post apocalyptic, but now a birds-eye-view, maybe taken from an airship.

    Cool. Water looks great and the colors are nice. Looking forward to seeing where you take it. I'm *very* afraid that I've bitten off a project that's too big for me with my perspective sketch thing...

    I'll hang in there. Just gotta find some time to plug in the Intuos and fire up Photoshop. We need a heck of a lot of maps for this show so I plan to finish it...and encourage everyone else to do it too. Nice to see some maps nearly done (Juggernaut and one other I can't recall at the moment).

    I have now a rough concept for the map. I will put them in line with Noramerika and Lando maps.
    Hattn Harbor is an important outpost, administrated by the Empyre of Texarado and the Kingdom of Hio as co-dominium. The water filled craters - remnants of orbital bombardments - are the ports (two civilian and one naval port), land craters (there will be two or three) are the inner cities - like citadells - while the broader areas around the ports are inhabited and fortified, too. I will create relatively strong fortifications and walls: the outpost can only be reached either by sea or by air via one of the fragile airships. In the eastern wastelands still roam mutant beasts, steel golems (more or less self-repairing combat robots) and mutant warrior tribes. Only Hattn Island and the area around the naval port in the South are settled, the areas west and east of Hattn Island are covered with thick forest and some ruins.

    The map shows Manhattan 1500 years after it's destruction, so there will be very few recognizable areas, if any at all.
