    Wip

    Hi all

    Following the changes I made yesterday I have now completed the three buildings on the right of the courtyard. These are the autorepair shop, the deli (added fridges and boxes to the storeroom) and the adult bookshop.

    Now I know one or two of you have a thing for spotting details so I will say that the magazine covers are based of real images. If you are anyone else thinks this is too much I will happily change them (although I don't think you can pick out any details which are too compromising).

    I've also added the roofs of the two building (one to the top of the map and the other to the right of the map) which are not going to be interior mapped.

    Finally, I have started work on the warehouse/aid station. I have had the main warehouse area converted into sleeping quarters, with boxes hastily pushed to the edges of the room and in the case of the two main doors used to create some crude defenses should the risers break through. A single forklift is also in the room.

    My next moves are to finish off the rest of the interior of the warehouse and then I can work on the courtyard and road defenses.

    Hope you all like.

    John

    uh... the Latest WIP is VERY very tiny....

    Yup, spotted that along with a layer problem in the book shop, so I have now fixed.

    Thanks

    Two questions:

    • Are there no other doors into the warehouse? The functionality of it seems odd, but I admit to not visiting that many warehouses.
    • Why is there blood on the floor of the adult bookstore? No, don't answer that.

    Everything is coming together swimmingly! I will ask a favor. When the contest is over can you post a version without the blood? This would be great for a Superhero encounter as well I think.
    Bill Stickers is innocent! It isn't Bill's fault that he was hanging out in the wrong place.

    If you look at the full map there is actually a door into it on the south side.

    Anyhow, this is very well done, I can't find anything else that needs fixing (other than the computer and the breadbasket... but like you said those are placeholders).

    Yes, I saw the door in the south side. Notice that it leads into another building.

    Yes, that's normal for warehouses. The employee entrance is through the "office area". Generally this is because the office area is where the staff lockers and punch in area are.

    The bread basket has been changed, its got real rolls in it now

    As you said the warehouse has the two large loading doors and a the smaller staff entrance to the south, which leads to the toilets, locker area, canteen and offices (next on the list to attack).

    To be honest the warehouse is very small, but that was a limiting factor of the size of the map, I would normally work on something about 4 times as large for a purpose such as this.

    Hehe, there will be a great deal more blood and gore, but the blood that is currently in was part of the carpet and tile textures. I will make most of the zombie related material into another layer, so I can post a none blood version when the challenge is done.

    Thanks
