Despite the little screaming voice in my head, I've decided to scrap Stormside. I feel like it was too ambitious and too poorly planned.
Now, that being said, I have NOT given up on entering the contest. Thus, I drew up a slightly better plan this time. I found this really neat little valley by the ocean, flanked by two inlet lakes that lead directly out into the ocean (I wish I had written down what seed I used). So, another port city I'm going to try, this one slightly smaller. My outline was as follows:
Olly's Outline wrote:My plan is to have three central towers, tapered in a sort of "egg" style, surrounded by circular walled portions that curve inwards gently at the top. All three of these walls will let out at a main entrance flanked by plinths, all oriented towards a small plaza with a fountain. The rest of the valley out to the inlets will be housing and residential stuff. Top it all off with some lighthouses, and I'm good to go.
and, off I go! A bit more than one week to get this done, recorded, and sent in to be judged. We'll see if I don't burn out by Wednesday.
Slightly less impressive, I know, but it'll have to do.
Any suggestions for a city name?
EDIT: And, before you ask, I may keep working on Stormside once this has blown over.
