    Just checked what Mortal Engines was and I to be honest I can really use some inspiration from those machines! Thanks for the words.

    Hey Heinvy, it's supposed to be a shield thing as for my imagination, but it can be taken to anywhere you want! I'll add a short lore when I finish up the post, I need to put a lot more buildings to complete the city, and I'll have to put in many theoretical stuff in the city, then destroy some of them :p That's where the destruction will show its face! Thanks for the feedback, I'll probably post one or two more WIPs to get even further feedback in short notice :pp

    I like the sky
    I like the composition

    About the theme the Aftermath.
    The crusier is intact, the city seems intact (dusty but intact),the nuclear radar station seems intact, the bunker I saw operating workshop looking far worst than that bunker,, so I think you should think to put something that fits the theme, that there was a battle of a violent episode
    to me it looks peacefull.
    If you look the others entries in overall people is doing buildings destroyed or corpses.

    maybe you can put 1 or 2 ships and bury with rocks or that stuff.

    I tell you this because, well I like to be honest I think...

    Thanks for the detailed feedback! I loved that concept art you attached, but the story of my concept won't be a total destruction such as a war. I'm thinking of something else. I'll need some wreckage too that's what I've been searching for, for about an hour. The area will be filled soon enough tho. I'm not totally certain of where I'm headed to tho :p

    I added a Chrysalis because I wanted to use red stuff. But I'm unsure if I want it there, and the round things are not very round. So we'll see if I want to have it around after all.

    EDIT: @Ragnaros17 Thank you for the nice words. I mainly took inspiration from Nier: Automata even though my doodad spam makes no justice whatsoever. But I can see how it makes you think they way you do.

    And since you asked for feedback yourself, the first thing you could work on is perhaps making the horizons not seem like the end of the world, either making it seem like there are some mountains/rocks in the distance or anything, even simply making the ground go further could help with the aid of some fog.

    I can feel that you put the camara more near to have more city detail (a very clever decision)
    I do really like the ship with angle like a crash (thats the cherry of the cake!)
    Now the dust looks like some poison fumes (I like it even more). With the the fumes and the +++ detail it seems more like an abandoned / ruined city

    A new update!! Probably will be finished on Monday or Tuesday, I hope :p

    WIP 6

    [​IMG]




    Thanks alot!! Yeah the camera should be able to get a wide shot of the city, I might even increase the FOV of the camera. Actually your suggestion made me add it tbh :p I really liked that Star Wars concept art.
    The dust is meant to come both from the ruined city buildings and the alien planet's wind. It is not the Earth I'm depicting, it's a new planet! You might think of Mars, since the colors can be thought of similar color ranges, actually not haha, but I thought about a planet like Mars, with dust storms and stuff. I will add the lore in the final post!

    Looking good! The only suggestion I could say would be the hill's angle kinda looks a bit steep. You might try smoothing a lil bit imo. The fog actually looks good btw!

    Almost done, I'll need a few hours to add many tiny details, as if it's a playable map haha :D Hoping that the final version would be interesting enough!

    every wip imroves a lot!! much more detail!

    I miss the bunker, nah just kiiding, I really like the camara and the city that has some kind of U shape.

    If you reduce the size of the teal nuclear radar station allias starcraft psi distuptor from the right you can add more stuff.

    Yeah!! I'm getting lots of ideas and starting to work more freely, instead of keeping myself in my comfort zone :p

    I don't miss that bunker too, it was supposed to have a dramatic effect but I'd rather go with a more subtle approach in story telling.

    I probably wouldn't decrease its size, i want it to look huge, I might add more props on it so it looks more detailed tho. Right now it drags some attention since it sits obviously on the right side of the image.

    Couldn't keep myself away from it, so here's one more. I'll need feedback for the lighting and fogging especially. All feedback are welcome!

    looks great


    WOW!! so is finished looks great
    maybe , a very subjetive opinion, try to have the sky different to have contrast with the city fumes., because the fumes are green and the sky seems a bit green.
    but is very subjetive.

    thanks for cheering up!!

    Sadly I didn´t make progress with my terraining (hope to do it soon). I am also in the 4v4 melee contest (hard to be in the 2 at the same time), my map was played yesterday and I am doing fixing so maybe it can be tested again.

    Voting will be hard, all your works are great , like of others games, (mine is just to much wc3 blizzlike but it is fun doing it).

    Alright! I might have gone a bit crazy with the lights, but I don't care because I like it and that's the point. Not to mention that I have never played around with fogs like this. All for the sake of my bipedal babies.

    Special thanks to @Heinvers for forcing me to participate.

    Final Entry: Bern's Bipedal Babies

    It's finished! I'm not doing anything! You can't tell me what to do! Lalalalaalala!

    My only regret is not doing anything about the railgun, but I kept forgetting.

    the first strike didnt destroy completely the factory target so we decided to launch a nuke to the hole area.
