    Map UCN Bettendorf -scifi map for the X-Plorers RPG

    I made this map for Brave Halfling Publishing last year. Took about a week during my free time and used Fireworks exclusively to create the map. Along with two others, this was included in the boxed set seen here: X-Plorers Box Set (and no, not a sales pitch as the box sets have sold out, the publisher posted a video where you can see the map from the box set).

    It's a stunner. Love the subtle glow on the background - that really pulls it together and gives it some punch.

    I've never used Fireworks but you've done an outstanding job with it. You obviously have good instincts.

    Definitely, a simple yet beautiful map. I can learn a lot personally in making things simpler and still have a WOW factor.

    Thanks for the feedback. Brave Halfling recently contacted me about making another map for them, so it looks like I have more to share with you in the near future.

    I look forward to it, that is great stuff. I've been wanting to attempt deckplans myself at some point but I've always been unsure of how to approach them. It's nice to see more spacecraft maps on the forums.

    Looks very good.
    I think there's a typo in the lower left what should be gravitational rotation.

    LOL Oh my, you are the first person (out of many, many) who pointed that out!

    The suggestion of objects with the use of grey adds some subtle details. I really like the look of the lab.

    Thanks, it was quite by accident that I ended up going that direction with the objects.
