World Geography map?

Post by Frozt » Tue Jun 09, 2009 11:52 pm

Just realized something here. Most of the planet was rocked by earthquakes and natural disasters globally, what would the planet look like from the moon's perspective? I mean i have the idea that, due to the faultlines in California, it could be a large chain island due to "THE EVENT". Does MWG have a plausable map idea, or will it be up to thsoe crazy enough to delve into the topic to make topographical charts? 8)

they said it has to do a lot from giant storms (hurricanes) and devestating earth quakes/volcano explosions... so take this map fo the fault lines and volcanoes
Image
any island is likely sunk. any where close to a yellow line is demolished by earthquakes. places by red dots were giant pools of lava for a while (or if underwater... new land?) or just buried for hundreds of miles round by volcanic ash. oh, and the coastline is likely consumed or greatly eroded from flooding and tsnamis.

for an over-all map for the time-period... i don't think the people in the game's story line even know what the world looks like anymore.

Actually i know that map very well as i live in California's Valley (nor cal, San Andreas fault etc.) But, we're talking destruction on an unprecidented scale, and for all we know the laws of nature changed on us. I ask of MWG has anythnigi n place before i start drawing up maps and such :mrgreen:

We have a map in mind, and will be producing one when we get around to really fleshing out the backstory - that is a LONG way off though.

One of the major components of Primal Horizon will be the ability to create your own armies, while keeping them balanced and appropriately themed. To help people create unique armies that still fit into the PH universe, we plan on providing a very thorough map of the world, including major geographic and social events that've taken place. That way someone doesn't spend a pile of time creating an army of Robots in Malaysia that've gone Native, only to find out that Malaysia sank into the ocean or banned Robotics before the event. You get the idea :)

We want to empower players to really express their creativity, and still end up with completely believable, and playable forces.

There's really only one race - humans. You can create your own factions or cultures though ;)

I claim what's left of California! Heh, but as for the faction Ideas, I'd probably do a twist and meebe write a mini campaign when this whole thing is finished. :mrgreen: But, good luck and all with flushing the beta ^_^
