Chicago in the early 20th Century was the city of the first great skyscrapers, but by making everything out of little horizontal boxes you've made the city very small and flat. This is the home of Frank Lloyd Wright, Van Der Rohe, and Burham's White City. Where is the grandeur of the gold coast, the Wrigley Building, and the magnificent mile?
Specific visual concerns: The Little Italy font is kinda clumsy; there should be something else that is easier to read and cleaner looking. The legend text is bad - very pixelated - and there is too much mixing of font styles... is this Art Deco Chicago, or Art Nouveau Paris? The planes look like they're made of balsa wood. And why is the river not the same color as the lake?
Yes....you too oaktown must have taken some nasty pills over xmas....i am very well aware that this can get a razzle from everyone but does it deserve after all it is only V4
But i am not trying to re-create Chicago in 3D living skyscaper colour. This is a version of classic risk style with some simple play, that everyone is asking for, so i have no intentions of making it into some fancy piece of artwork, although the art-deco style will be more my thing when i get it worked out.
I think you guys are simply barking up this tree the wrong way when i haven't had the time to make any real decent attemtps at it. so give it a break and have some patience....If the ideas when they come are liked it will get there.
but when i am ready to work on it. Right now i have some other things happneing in my life that i have to catch up on after spending so much time in the foundry in the last 9 months.
