Thread: May/June Lite Entry - Shipwrecks of the Iron Sea

  1. #1

    Wip May/June Lite Entry - Shipwrecks of the Iron Sea

    I discovered this challenge while playing with random land generation methods in the GIMP, at almost the same time that I came up with a really interesting Scandinavia-esque sea - so what better way to start out on this forum?

    I'm planning a touristy map of the shipwrecks of the area, with some details about each one (name, date, tonnage, &c) in a seperate section.

    Ooh, this looks to be a nice beginning. And welcome to the Guild flatworlder! Very ambitious of you to begin your first map with a Challenge entry. Now that's what I call taking the bull by the horns. Have some rep for bravery. I look forward to checking back and seeing this map progress.

    Sounds interesting and looks really good already. This'll be a tough contest…

    Great idea, and good-looking start! Welcome to the CG.

    Thank you for the welcome, everyone!

    I've added some labels, and a bit of other detail (including an hour or so spent making an svg logo for the bottom there) and I'm almost reading to start mapping out the shipwrecks themselves.

    Very nice. I'm quite impressed. Looks like there will be a lot of very good submissions for this challenge.

    I've added some lighthouses (with their date of founding) and cities.

    I like the icons for the lighthouses, simple and very unambiguous.

    I've done about half of the wrecks, colour-coded by diving difficulty. I'll get the rest finished later today or tomorrow, along with a legend.
