Phase 3: Schematic overview of Twinsun

Now that we've gathered all the ingame representations of the game I think we can move on to phase 3: Schematic overview of Twinsun.

This means the abstract drawing of the Twinsun with the continents.
Ofcourse the big problem is how we are going to draw this.

Anyway ideas for map drawing software?

That's a good question actually.
I tried out Inkscape the other day. It's the software Homeless used for the Twinsunia logo, using vector graphics. I used the LBA 1 holomap of Desert Island as a reference.
I ended up with a good copy of the outline, and very poor coloring.

Yes inkscape is a possibility. But I don't think we should use the bitmap trace feature. It's much better if we draw it by hand. We could manually trace it.

But still I was hoping for a better map drawing tool.

I'm completely unskilled in hand-drawings. That's why I used it.
What is that bitmap trace feature?

didn't mean hand drawings, I meant drawn by hand (using your mouse or drawing tablet or whatever)

it's what you used to convert the image to a vector

Eh?
I used the hand drawing tool to draw a very basic outline.
Then I spent a whole lot of time in comparing it to the ref and fixing the vectors.
It was a vector all the time.

I'm not seeing a program to help in this task, but I have an unfinished hand draw of the Twinsun overview. It may help ordering each island in the real map. Need to see where it is now, and get a time to scan, but it only be possible next week since I can't use my scan atm .

I don't know about that.
Anyway, we are doing the LBA 1 representation first.

How should the map look like? Like this? The problem with that kind of a map is that it is created for people who do not want to know anything about the poles - they should use an extra map for that.

But we are very much interested in the poles. He must find an other way of representation.

Not like that, it should be square so you can scroll seemlessly to the left or right.

But ok, I think we should stick with Inkscape for map drawing then?

I was more concetrating about the content displayed in the map, not about the rounded edge. It has a focus on the equator, and puts the boring, empty poles near the edge. But Twinsun has a focus on the poles, and the equator is the "boring" part.

I don't know anything better. But I don't know much in that direction.

what is Twinsun's equator?

The current image used is simply the holomap image. Just as test.

But yes, we do need to decide the orientation we want to use.

The equator is the Hamalayi Mountains.

Something like this first maybe? Only the outlines would be a start.
