Hello,

this is my first map I want to show you. It is a map for the boardgame Formula D or Formula De (a racing game). I have seen there is already a map WIP for the brilliant "Rocky Shores" track by armoredgear7.

This is the map so far - it is playable, but I have to think about the background. It is based on the Race of Champions layout in the Wembley Stadium in London. Basically they just put tarmac on the grass of the soccer field.

The map is drawn completely in Inkscape, where I used a lot the "pattern along path" tools. To make it usable I adjusted the size to 60x45 cm², which is a possible format for online poster printers.

My idea is now to paint the background in Gimp and load back into Inkscape (to keep the vector graphics) an make a pdf.
