    Default Modern Apocaliptic Syle Background

    I made this up a while ago, originally with the thought of redrawing the map for the game "Pandemic" and using this as a background. But I lost interest in the project and it stalled out, so now I thought I would post this background here as a png file in the hopes that someone can make use of it.

    Oh, and I forgot to show you what the map I had made up with it looked like before I ran out of steam. I will include that as well; maybe you will find it inspirational.

    That's pretty damn cool, actually. I hope you find the motivation to finish it someday.

    Soooooo, why did you decide not to finish this exactly? Would have made a really cool map.

    Cheers,

    Well, mostly it was because I found that I didnt understand the rules for the game it was going to be used with. So finishing it would have resulted in a map for a game I would likely never play. Also, I started it at a time when I had some spare photoshoppin time, which I don't really have now. But if you really want to see it complete, I'll get back to it.

    Thanx for the interest/motivation!

    OK, so I did some more work on the map. The game it's based on is called Infection Express and is available as a free downloadable print-and-play game off the BoardGameGeek site. Which in turn is based upon another game called Pandemic (which is Not free). I was trying to lighten up the map but I think I overdid it with the glowing icons I added. Probably have to redo those. As well there are a number of notes and charts that go around the map that I have yet to add in.
