Title: West Wood City
Post by: Jim on December 18, 2016, 06:30:53 AM
Over the past few weeks I have been working on a city called West Wood. So far it mainly consists of high rise skyscrapers, a detailed intersection, lampposts and a few cars along the road.

I am starting off with the city centre and then I will be expanding my way outwards where I will then start to build houses and other buildings around the outskirts of the inner city.

I plan on making this city very detailed as Total Miner still mainly consists of mediocre deathmines. Most cities that you see mainly consists of straight roads and minor landscaping, but I plan on making curved roads and big mansions. Something that you don't see quite often (on this game)

I have even went as far as to plan my city layout on a piece of paper that I keep adding additions onto when I get the chance to.

At the time of this being posted, this is what I have built so far:

14 buildings altogether.
12 of them are modern designed skyscrapers.
1 of these buildings is a 5 story car park.
And the final building is them famous triangular building known as the 'Flatiron Building'
I still have to do all of the interiors for all of the buildings, but that's not my main priority at this moment.

I am going to build a few more skyscrapers and then I will move on to building, city houses and then eventually smaller shops and more!

In the future when Total Miner PC comes out. I am hoping to transfer this word over to PC where I can continue working on it.

Once I am happy with its progress and it is very detailed, I will probably make a copy of the world and make it into a 'hunger games' map where I am planning on doing giveaways. For example 10 or 25 steam cards, Xbox One gold memberships and PSN vouchers!

Just something I would like to give back to the community.

All I need now is for someone to come on and take some picture of my map (I'm looking at you Nazty ;)) and post them to this thread so I can physically show you guys my work on this city so far.

Thank you so much for reading!

I joined 10 minutes ago and decided to get some photos. They are not the best quality but you will still see what I saw.

Thanks for the photos but your camera or whatever you took the pictures with has actually changed the colour of some of the blocks lol.

Looks fantastic! Are these buildings copies of real life buildings, inspired by, or completely your own?

There's 1-2 I got inspired from off YouTube and 1 is actually a real life building that I tried to re-create, here: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flatiron_Building

I saw a post similar to casual onions about him saying that he isn't going to be hosting much. I'm on the same boat as him, however I've just lost interest in building and carrying on with this world right now.

I will, of course, carry on with the world once PC edition has been released but as it is right now, I've lost interest.

I may still go back on and work at it maybe once or twice per week but right now I just don't want to.

I think it's because of (sadly) how quiet it is now      when hosting, probably due to people moving to Ps4, Xbone and Pc. I've also lost all inspiration too  :!

Wow, this is looking great so far, I really like the building designs, do you mind if I use the pictures as inspiration? My favourite is the Flatrion building, I instantly recognised that building from GTA IV, very famous building in New York. It would be great to see this in-game maybe some day. Good job on the designs (and the roads.)

it would be really cool if you added a creek or stream coming from like a sewage pipe coming from underneath the road over by the grassy area by the gas station....maybe that could lead to a sewage system for your city...maybe the creek or stream could lead to a bigger body of water,and/or make that area woodsy

So I've started getting back into Total Miner and have specifically gotten back to working on this map again. I have added a few more things from the last time I updated this post.

I have added:

Garage/filling station
Motorcycle dealership
Walmart with a big car park
Row of city houses
3 more skyscrapers

My next move is to add a square in the centre of a load of buildings and houses, similar to 'Legion Square' from GTA5: http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Legion_Square

After that I will be making more roads and highways that will eventually lead to a huge airport that I plan on making.

I don't know lol just do anything you can come up with. I've built a big square that is going to be surrounded by buildings. So I was wondering, do you remember that greenhouse map you did with all the plants and flowers? I was going to ask you if maybe I would be able to fill that square with those plants and stuff that you made?

Thanks!

City, steampunk, and fantasy/medieval maps were by far my favorite maps to explore when I used to play on 360. I can't wait to see amazing builds like these on PC multiplayer once it comes out!

The buildings look great. But heres a tip from me.

If your burned out of Building, you could try to terraform the surrounding area or a natural features.
Regardless, this seems like a really fun map to explore.  ^-^
