    Default WIP: Pagendia Mining Colony

    Here's my latest WIP. I wanted to try something Sci-Fi this time.

    Things still left to do:
    * Add a spacecraft/cargo landing site (will probably go on the empty mid-right island)
    * Add more mines + a network of mining tunnels out in the ocean floor (low opacity, like the water turbines)
    * Expand the mining processing plant
    * Connect the water turbines & energy cell towers with pipes/cables
    * Add a satellite dish to the relay station
    * Add water tanks near the desalination plant
    * Add sirens to the storm bunker (toxic gas storms are frequent on this planet)
    * Add/tweak roads (these are just placeholders right now)
    * Add title/cartouche, border, legend, compass
    * Tweak overall colours, contrast, etc.

    Legend:
    1. Erilium Mines
    2. Erilium Processing Plant
    3. Storm Bunker
    4. Executive Apartments
    5. Administrative Buildings
    6. Energy Cell Towers
    7. Water Turbines
    8. Labourer Housing
    9. Recreation Complex
    10. Medical Center
    11. Private Medical Office
    12. Cafeteria
    13. Relay Station
    14. CEO & Guest Housing
    15. Desalination Plant

    I like it! Very sci-fi-ish! I could have nightmares of alien attacks in this kind of place.

    Looking good! Who knows what swims in those oceans.

    jugabyte, Bogie - Thanks!

    I definitely had some alien/creature encounters in mind while making this! Who knows what may be lurking down in the mining tunnels. And I pity whoever has the job of doing maintenance on the water turbines... I was thinking of all my favourite underwater monster/creature movies while doing those. Lots of mishaps to be had, including those nasty toxic storms, general injuries, etc. That's why there's a fairly large medical center.

    I wasn't too happy with the number icons (with the lines), so here's an alternate version. What do you think? better?

    I like that better. It doesn't interrupt the feel of things so much.

    jugabyte - Great, thanks. Yeah, the way I had it before, it looked a bit too busy/messy.

    Jorasha - Thanks!

    Just had my husband look at it, and he suggested swapping the locations for the spaceport and the bunker. Quicker access (for the majority of the population) to the bunker, and closer proximity to transport the ore to the cargo ships. So, yeah... I'll be switching those for my next update.
