I want to print out some buildings and stuff for C3G but do not have enough terrain for it.
It's taking longer because we are making them modular so you can create multiple layouts. I'm tempted to just do an intersection, and a straight street non modular map similar to the link you posted just to put it out but haven't decided.

No rush. I know that you guys work hard on all of this stuff. Take your time and we will enjoy it when it's done.

Great trades with Onacara, Gypsy, SirGalahad, elltrain, generalgina, Concord, Just_a_Bill, LongHeroscaper, janus19390, and the very generous obfuscatedhippo.

Re: C3G CityScape

I wasn’t really sure where to post this but I was checking out a miniatures game called Combat Storm and I noticed that they had a free download section for papercraft. I didn’t know if any of it could be used or converted for C3G but I thought I would link to it just in case. It does have some nice shipping containers, a dumpster, some cars, etc., that looked like they might fit right in.

Check it out here if interested.

Re: C3G CityScape



Hey Japes, how did you make that white sidewalk? looks like foam board? I've tried in the past to make them, but they always come out wildly unsymmetrical.

Yeah that was an old prototype. But what I did was to print a Hex pattern and then I took a scrap piece of plexiglass and tape the print out to it. I then drilled holes at each corner and created a template. I then just put my template over a piece of foam board and punched small indents into the foamboard. Then just hours of playing connect the dots.

I have been putting it off for lack of time. but my hope is to do the foam insulation method where you press the hexes into it and then paint it up.

My hope is to make a large sheet that can hold my whole city setup.

I tried this as well. I still have a sheet of the pink foam that's been in my garage for about 2 years now...maybe longer. It was more difficult that I had thought to get those impressions in the foam. I think I actually ended up breaking a few tiles in the process so I have up. We've been experimenting for a few years with a system that tile-able city street sections for maximum variability with minimum effort. This winter I should get more bulk time to get back to it so we can be ready for testing and then a release soon.

Re: C3G CityScape

Found a new inspiration at this site...

He uses corkboard instead of foamcore because it's easier to cut, glue, and paint.
