Making a Map of Mainframe (Part 3)

Lost Angles – formerly the twin city of Mainframe, which was destroyed when one Welman Matrix tried to open a portal to the Net. All that remained of the city after the explosion was the small island connected by a warped suspension bridge called the Guilded Gate Bridge.

Lost Angles will be one of the more simple locations to draw on this map, simply because it’s separated from the rest of the city and doesn’t affect the placing of other buildings and locations around it. I really wanted to include some of the artwork that Hexadecimal made on the buildings from the episode “Painted Windows,” but the area is just too small to include that kind of detail. In fact, I’ve already enlarged the island in relation to Mainframe quite a bit. If I hadn’t, you would have barely been able to see landmarks even as big as Hex’s Tower. The city of Mainframe is just enormous compared to Lost Angles when shown in the ReBoot media.

Thanks to everyone on Twitter and Reddit for recommending places to include on this map. I’m going to try to squeeze them all in! I’m also looking for vidwindow content to put up around the city, so let me know if you have any ideas!

Jedi High (#2)

Jedi High is a fan-made STAR WARS comic done entirely for free and drawn and coloured by hand.  This is a fun idea I had about a month ago, so I thought I’d try drawing a few panels to see what people thought.  Whether or not I continue drawing these is up to you!

If you’d like to read more go here.  All new posts will also be put up on the main page.

Making a Map of Mainframe (Part 2)

img_20180924_230348_148-1344904045.jpg

Pinnacle Elite – The Principle Office (in rough)! I always find it easiest to start at the centre of a picture and work my way out. But there are a few other locations that I’m going to add in next.

Speaking of locations to feature – here is my list:

Baudway

Dot’s Diner

Algorithm Theater

Kits Sector

Bob’s Apartment

Jet Ball grounds

the ports and control tower

Giedi Prime

the Silicon Tor

Al’s Wait and Eat

Pearson’s Data Dump

energy park

Beverly Hills

energy park

Other

the Principle Office

Lost Angles and the Guilded Gate Bridge

Bob’s V262 Turbo

a code master portal

Electro-Cinematek from ‘High Code’

VidWindows for: the Mainframe Strolling Players, Bucket-O-Nothing, Paint, Incoming Upgrade, Bride of Frankenome, “You Could Be Zipping”

Let me know if there’s something else I should add!

I suppose I should also say that this is going to be a diagram more than an actual map (perhaps I’ll also try to make an actual map), and that I’m planning to use a good measure of artistic license to highlight and feature some of the different locations.

Final thought: I know last time I said that measuring twice and drawing once was key, but I decided to backtrack a little since last time. The image of Mainframe that I had first been using showed Wall Street in the foreground. But after considering the locations I wanted to feature in this map, I decided it would be best to rotate Mainframe so Kits Sector is facing us. That way I can draw all the skyscrapers in the background where they obstruct nothing.
