    Wip Xara surface image, Raydream 3D...

    Xara is not a 3D application. The only thing done by Xara in this map is the texure on the surface - that is the forest, ground, water, stony textures - the image on the terrain is all Xara.

    The rest of this design was created using Raydream Studio, an old, nolonger supported 3D application - its the first 3D software I got, and its easy to use, but the rendering isn't all that.

    The dropship and the Madcat were modeled using Izware Nendo. I will be creating a few more mechs and probably redoing the mountains with Nendo, texture applied in Raydream and re-rendered.

    I created a height map based on the Xara terrain design, used a 3D terrain generator (built into Raydream) to create that 3D surface.

    That's about it, so far!

    Wip Just made a second battlemech!

    OK, I already got a Madcat and its on the map already.

    I borrowed a friends miniatures box of mechs, because I need to create at least 3 different kinds of mechs to populate this siege map. The thing is, I have no idea what Battlemech this is - does anyone have an idea! I just thought it looked cool. It looks slightly smaller than a Madcat, maybe in the 65 to 80 ton range with what looks like two large lasers or large pulse lasers on each arm, and missle batteries in the side torsos.

    I need to create one more mech, probably one of the smaller humanoid looking mechs, 50 tonner with jump jets. I want a Mech jumping off those mountains to the right bottom of the map.

    Once all the mechs are designed and textured - I will start to work on missles in flight with smoke trails, exploding missles and laser energy shots, perhaps a couple misses with explosions, one on soil and one in the river. Then I'll wrap up this map design.

    Tell me which mech I created if you please!!!

    I don't know if they're BattleTech or not but I got some mechs from the SketchUp warehouse...an X-Caliber, X-Caliber Lone Wolf, and a Nexus. There are more there and I can snag some if ya want. I can only export them as .kmz but could easily output some .jpgs for ya.

    I believe that is a Vulture. The Clan version is called Mad Dog.

    Post Thanks for the offer, but...

    Thanks Ascension, I really do appreciate the offer, but I prefer to create my own. People remark how fast I am at creating maps/graphics - part of the reason though, is I never use other people's map objects or clipart for graphics, other than photos/textures (which I borrow lots for my work). Thus I am less efficient or fast, because I don't use other's art. I'm a purist in my art - I want a hand in everything I create, that's how I am.

    And Thanks, Midgardsormr! I'll be asking again, after I create my next mech!

    PS: my plan for some cool backstory, is I'll be creating a two or three page comic with the backstory, and the last page, being the iso-map itself. Fun, huh?

    I have always been partial to the Atlas or Awesome for defenders due to the armor and firepower.

    Oh wow, and I thought this looked good on the CBT site... Very nice... (also i sense that be it wolves or vipers that attack us falcons... the Lyran term "hozed" best describes their fate!)

    Wip Smoke trails and Comic Cover design

    While I was creating my missle models, practicing with smoke trail graphics, I decided to create the cover art for my comic book - the theme for the backstory (just add some extra fun!)

    I'm doing some research on the Wolf Clan and the Jade Falcon Clan to get the story "right". Clan Wolf has received some Intel that the Jade Falcon planet called Samarkand is a secret black ops science laboratory - and its a little too close to Wolf Clan space lanes. So it needs to be eliminated.

    Anyway, enjoy - I really hope to create a 2 or 3 page comic to go with this...

    (oh, no WIP tag, since this isn't the actual map)
