Supers Map

This is a project I have been working on and off again for 6 months with some awesome help from JDR.

It is a 9 block supers project map. I'm trying to develop this into a easy to reproduce style that will allow me to map the section maps for a city.
Learning the scale and trying to get the street markers correct and easily read has slowed the process.
The numbers on the buildings are to easily remember the floors for each section.

Anyway here is the map I'd like to get some feedback.




  • It looks very well done to me. I like the perspective of looking at it as if I were flying over the center building. When you first labelled it as a supers map, I thought you meant a view from superman flying over...silly me...

    anyway yeah, it looks really good.

    Yes Supers in the version of a Super hero game or a modern game like cyberpunk, Shadow Run, etc.

  • Haha, ok, so you didn't mean from a superintendent of a city.

    I think it would be great to use in Shadowrun. It would make for some scary moments of jumping from building to building with my decker trying to escape some corporate muscle. Can you get more detailed on the roofs? things like ceiling air conditioners and pipes and stuff for some cover to hide behind or is it not meant for that scale?

    Haha building super,

    Yes that is the plan, I have some billboards, water towers, elevators, pipes and equipment like that planned but I haven't gotten that far yet.
    If you have any ideas of things that could be added or would be useful write them in this thread and I'll try to I include them.
  • KenG that is awesome. Love it.

  • Very nice map so far! I'm eager to see the finished product.

    I have one small issue with it. The buildings in the central block seem much lower than the others. I know that they are probably mathematically correct, but nevertheless, my mind can't see them as tall as they are. Maybe you could put only low buildings in the centre? Or cheat a little bit? Or display the view as if it was at the vertical of a corner of the centre, instead of the centre of the centre (I'm afraid this would mean redrawing everything...)?
  • Beautiful. This would have been great when I used to play Champions many eons ago. Any modern game will make use of this for sure.

    Gather I agree about the center buildings and I'm trying to figure out a workable idea, but the low buildings is a great idea for now. I see parks, zoos and used car lots in the future. Lol
    Thanks RA, Gathar and AEIOU!!!!
  • Yea cant wait to see this finished. Aside from roleplaying i can see the war game mat potential.
  • Ken,
    Very nice work. I have been wanting to do a similar type of map but more fantasy. How did you come up with the perspective like that? Is there a guide or something you used?
