Hello everyone. I would like to share my entire project from scratch with you. Each new step will be shared here until I completely finish the whole Sigma world.

Before starting, I want to say I have everything planned already and it took me a while to write all my plans. Now, it is time to execute these plans! I started making a SKETCH from the continent, since we, humans, adapt from what we got from nature, not the opposite (and because it is more challenging this way). Based on this continent, I will start mapping. However, I may change the continent a little bit during the process of mapping.

I also want to say that I will probably not post here everyday, I will post a picutre here whenever I finish an area and this can take a while, so stay tunned to see good stuff (hopefully) coming!


PS: I've started a small town already, as you can see in the picture. I had the idea of share my project after I made this small town.

Just a little spoiler to make this post not so empty at the start...

My first temple from Eldham. This is a religious city and the citzens really enjoy these huge temples. Also, there is something special about these crystals under the temple and the mages are studying it!

PS: This crystal idea wasn't mine. A friend of mine gave me this idea and I got inspired, however, I made this.

I am getting very inspired by The Witcher 3 (Novigrad city), there are alot of cool places that I can try to make in RME.

This is my attempt to make the open market from Witcher 3. I also made other areas for Eldham already, but I will share it later.
As I am making a religious city, you may find some shrines like this I've made. Also, I am making the city using Venore walls, since I find it very "religious".

This area I made is like a commercial area, you can find everything there (armor, weapons, tools...), inside the stores.

I am trying to make a detailed map and the most important, a playable map. So, if you guys find it overdetailed, just tell me, since I want to prioritize gameplay over detail. Every new area I make, I test with some friend, trying to see how are the movements inside stores, etc. For me, at least, is very playable at the moment.


EDIT: Made a few changes on the shrine ground.

To be honest, I may change that fire shrine for something else. As this is a religious place, what item you guys think it would fit there? Or you think this fire shrine is fine? The idea here is to make something like this:

I am trying to make a simple city that isn't over detailed. I hope you guys like it, even though its very simple.
There is alot to show, but I think thats enough for today.

As I said before, I am making a city inspired by Novigrad from The Witcher 3.

A few more...
To be honest, I am getting out ideas for my city and I don't want to rush it, so I will slow it down a little bit.

I started to lurk this forum a few months ago and decided to make my own map. I consider myself new to this, so, I wish you guys could give me suggestions. My objective is to make a low exp rate server, something like Global map.

Sometimes I also can't see, so, I reload the page. I can see all pics normally right now.
I don't know what is causing this.

Really some good and attracting mapping, very cool indeed. It would be nice if you could also occasionally post an update of the minimap, a loot of people like to see the entire progress :)

Thanks for the suggestion. I will update the minimap soon, I just want to finish my second city before making an update, because there is not much to show yet.
