Title: casual onion's PC City Map!
Post by: casual onion on December 01, 2017, 09:57:33 PM
Welcome to Untitled!
I'll work on that name...

Introduction
Hello everyone and welcome to my not-at-all-anticipated PC city map. So, I'm aware that the game doesn't technically have a release date for PC yet but a bit of forward planning ain't too bad eh?

For this map, I'd like to take the best bits (and worst depending on your view), of my Xbox cities and combine them into MEGACITY3000 (or untitled). I'll get more into that in the features section further down. I think that this topic will serve as a source of information and a bit of an ideas baord for me too until the game comes out, hopefully in December 2017. So, without further notice - lets get into the features...

Features

Properties
A bit more about them seems as these are my favourite things to build in maps! I want to make the system a bit fairer than in Huttondale and previous maps, so I've done some radical-ish changes.

Restrictions?
[li] Certain ranks may restrict you from buying certain things i.e. a block or item shop (just like in Huttondale)[/li][/list]

Variations
So, in most of my maps, the average house price is an un-reasonable 50-60,000 Aires (That'll be the currency for nostalgia's sake). So, i've planned to have an emphasis on smaller houses to get people onto the property ladder. Ooh, i might even have mortgages and bills to pay ;) Here is my incredibly high tech system...


Villages

Release Date
Mid January 2018 hopefully.

YouTube Videos
I'm going to try and record 5 to 10 minute long videos for my channel (YouTube: casual onion) showing updates, which i'll probably link here weekly instead of rambly post telling you that i added dacite to a mine.

The End...
That's all for now. Please leave suggestions here or ping me on the Total Miner Discord. See you soon!

Is this map completely terraformed or just on a basic grasslands map? I sure would love to see it built by hand!

You've got more chance of seeing a three-legged emu than me doing a decent terraforming!

 I see it as an unnecessary stress when we have customisable terrain (I hope)

Consults list of things more unlikely than me terraforming a flat land map.

I really enjoyed BayStone so this should be a blast. From the pictures i've seen on discord it looks great. I'll be sure to look out for this when PC multi-player is realeased. (If i'm not sweating my own map that is)

It's actually really rewarding if you terraform your map, it might be tiresome but looking at it when its done is so uplifting.

Looking forward to seeing you but where's these discord pictures you speak of?

I'll see what I can do. I'll be terraforming anyway as I want to build on the hillside as  well as on top.

Of course you can. I'll be making videos for YouTube and connection permitting (new WiFi coming soon!) I might stream too if you aren't on.

In other news, I'm basing the shopping centre on this:

And this is where JG and Omega along with player owned shops and offices will be located.

Can't remember them but I've saved some house designs to build.

So the shopping centre is the benchmark for the whole town? or are you turning it into a huge town hall?

Nope, the shopping centre will be near the main town but not in it. For example,  the main town will be on a hill and the shopping centre will be in a valley at the bottom of the hill.

Not yet, but it's essentially a bigger version of Huttondale.

Here it is! It's of the new map. I'll probably not stick to it precisely but it gives you an idea.

*Check Discord because Imgur and Photobucket are useless*

I've also tested new house designs in Huttondale as it's a similar environment. Looks good.

I've been thinking, as each building, property, house etc. is individually Scripted then I figured it'd be nice to have houses in prime location cost more, cos that's how it is in the real world. Could anyone think of any other reason why a property might cost more (or less?)
