    Wip November Challenge: Rice Hotel, Houston, Texas

    I`m currently running a GURPS Fallout campaign that takes place in Houston, Texas, and thought it would be fun to submit one of my brilliant ideas (sic) as a challenge map. Although I must say I cannot promise I`ll be finished in time. Too much work makes Siggy a dull boy... XD

    Some background info: as you all know (can`t find the article right now) Texarkana is "governed\ruled" by a BoS trained unit called "The Guard".
    This is going to be their "stronghold" in Houston, Texas.........

    And what would be better than to make a Pipboy 3000 Local Map from the third (fourth? who cares) installment of the series...
    Here`s what I`ve got this far........
    * Stole some images off of the internets
    * Cleaned up the screen part

    Going to a concert tonight but could not get myself to put this on hold.....

    After an insane amount of time (sic again) I finally found a font resembling the one used in the game.
    Removed the old text, but kept the lines showing boundaries and such.
    Made my own text, using my own birthdate and a special time of the day......XD

    Wip

    Finally got some free time and thought I`d try to map the interior. I tried to find some building plans with Google, but no go, so the interior is pretty much just made up.
    Also made myself an arrow and door icons, which I`m pretty proud of, if I may say so....
