    Wip Independence Spaceport

    Working on a few key locations for an adventure by MJD for Avenger Enterprises.
    It takes place at Independence Spaceport - a partly underground urban and heavy industry complex on a low gravity world with a very thin atmosphere (like Mars).

    Just some rough ideas sketched to help work out the details ...

    ... a certain place (known for it's heat) will freeze over before I attempt to work with photographic images again.

    I prefer greyscale, so these will stay greyscale.
    The original images that I started with were compiled at 1 pixel = 1 foot.
    Compiling them ino a multi kilometer image required steping down to greyscale and dropping the resolution.
    Even so, I had to break the images into smaller pieces and then spend thirty hours of processing time stitching them together.
    I would need better hardware to try this in color.

    Nine million people is just too large of a city for learning to do this.
    But thank you for the compliment.

    Just for fun, here are a couple of the higher resolution building blocks that I made first:

    One of the farm domes ...

    For a sense of scale on all of the maps, the farm domes are about 1 kilometer in diameter.
