    Post Bahamut Star System (Green Phosphor Look)

    Software: MS Paint, MSDOS Edit

    Description: I've yet to see a really effective star system map in this forum. There may be one on here somewhere, but I've not seen it. So, I decided to give it a shot. I have a great affection for the retro-future technology found in movies like Aliens where the wonderful old green phosphor screens are the state of the art. So, since I'm not much of an artist and I only have MS Paint to work with at the moment, I decided to do a retro-future style star system map.

    Reminds me of the old Apple II...pretty cool.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    This is certainly a nice job, wormspeaker. Have some rep.
    The oldskool feel is great, very campy sci-fi. It also reminds me of the terminal system some of my colleagues are still using
    Check out my City Designer 3 tutorials. See my fantasy (city) maps in this thread.

    Pretty impressive for MSPaint.
    In fact, I might even 'borrow' the layout for my system maps.

    Look for Chit Chat, Sandmann's blog. Enjoy.

    Not much of an artist.. Pah! You did this basically in layers... in <i>MS Paint</i>? You, sir, are an artist. Bravo!
