Cordillon: Bold New World

Postby paltrysum » Fri Jul 14, 2017 6:55 pm

Here's my write-up for Cordillon (Trojan Reach 2411 C431210-C Lo Po Ni):

Cordillon is the planet that Albe is shipping colonists to to alleviate its population problems. Comments, questions, flames welcome. 8)

My computer was doing a quick map of your map, when I realized a world-size of 4. So hex edges don't count up right. That's my only gripe. I like your writing and layout style, by the way.

Thanks, Shawn. Wow! That is so cool! I only wish your tool could make it spherical from where you have it, and then all I would have to do is play around with a few PhotoShop filters and tools to get it looking right. My current method is not quite that efficient. :|

I don't think I have a decent sphere object that is mapped to 20-sided objects currently. The one on this computer has a few lumps.

Agreed. Paltrysum, please do more Trojan Reach write ups!

Glad you all liked it! There will definitely be more to come. I also posted my version of Yeróilra, a world of the Glorious Empire, a month ago or so:

I'll post my take on Tktk and probably Caldos in the near future.
