Hello! Today, let us enter OOC mode and talk about stuff. My name is Bufflez, I am currently the main guy working on the IFSM. I am doing all the artwork, including what I am most proud of; the map. I love geography, cartography, and history, which is the main reason I took on this project. I wanted to create something that I could be proud of and encompasses all three of those things.
Recently, my main focus has been a map for the world (Kaizen). I feel maps are really important for role-playing, so I decided that I should put a lot of effort into mine. I created one, but I feel like it could be much better.
I have started work on a new map, completely redrawing it. This one will be three times the size of the old map (which was at 1440p) Because of Photoshop’s size limits, I just divided the map into nine different sectors.
The reason it is divided into sectors, is because each one will be a separate file. This just makes it simpler for me, and again, Photoshop size restraints. I have already started on the new map, and hope on finishing a sector a day. I have school coming up soon, so that might slow things down a bit. Below is an comparison of the old map, to what I have of the new map.
Thank you all for reading, I hope you enjoy and will continue to support me and my project as I work on it.
