    Post 3d 'maps'

    I'm not sure if these strictly count as maps, but I thought I'd share my works in progress. These images (3d models) are the latest stages of an 'evolution of a starport' (for Traveller), in which I am thumbnailing the development of a starport from a flat piece of land with a control tower to a fully developed starport with all the attendant facilities one would expect.

    Um... Whoa! What more can I say? You know I'm thinking that with the top down view it would be rather simple to throw a grid over it when it is all done. Very nice! Please keep posting as you go. What software are you building this in?

    The modelling is done in Silo 3d and the rendering, compositing etc is done wtih Bryce.

    3d modelling always (to me) looks a bit souless when it comes to using a top down view for mapping though.

    Thanks for the compliments!

    The top down views don't really do it for me (without more color at least) bt that final isometric view with the greebled city is just amazing.
