This is a work in progress for my latest map, Eagle River Power Station. Inspired by the very ‘steam-punk’ photography of the real Eagle River power station, a circa 1915 coal power station, I have begun creation of this map. Eagle River isn’t its real name, it’s a name given to it by the photographer to keep its location a secret. I’m sure someone knows where it is, but for want of keeping the photographs original, keep it to yourself please.
The photographs to which I refer can be found here: Corrosive Industry
And here’s a screenshot of my progress so far. Note that whilst Eagle River is my inspiration, it isn’t my intention to replicate it, my map is completely of my own creation and isn’t meant to look the same, or share the same layout.
Let me know what you guys think, what sort of map this should be (ie a garrysmod map, css map, what style etc) and any suggestions/criticisms you have. Yeah it’s still very early on. I’m a long way from being a pro mapper, so I’m doing the best I can with what skills I have. My main objective is to preserve the very abandoned, lifeless atmosphere of the station seen in the photographs above.
Here’s some pics of my progress. Still need a purpose for this map… and a way to explain how an abandoned power station still has lights :S
