Frenchman Valley, of the Great Plains
« on: June 27, 2016, 05:04:57 PM »
I grew up in Imperial, Ne.  Frenchman Creek, was ran through Chase County.  I went to college in central Kansas, and now live in eastern Nebraska.  I wanted to create a map that was all encompassing of where I live.  This map is a 4x map, and will have all of the good stuff in it, Soil mod, mud, choppedstraw... you know the good stuff.  This is my first map, and i have just started it.  I wanted to post this because I really want to make a great map, and finish it, so I hope you all we keep me on task.  The map will have maybe a dozen circle, which is most of the way we farmed in Chase County.  The hills and valleys represent, the smokey hill of Kansas so far.  There will be on large beef operation, and one hog, a small dairy farm, with sheep  as a artisan special for the local town.  Two small farms, each based on my grandparents farm, one in Kansas and on in Imperial.  I will do my best to keep updating you all, and wish me the best of luck.

It looks like a great start for a midwest map. Always need more of them keep up the great work.

 Looks really nice. I like the rolling effect you have in the landscape. Nice to get away from the flat terrain.

@Farmers Dogs thx for the support @JohnDeers1952, the plan is to have the map kind of split on the 45 on one side that has more of the circles will be the rolling hills and the other side more canyon lands with terrence land.  With the river as the divider.

That is an awesome looking terrain. Just one word of advice if you are able to do it. Set your road structure in first and then bring your terrain in to it. It will make setting your highway system in place a whole lot easier.

@Ag Hauler, I thought I was going about it backwards, because I was putting in the roads first then the terrain.  Thanks for the advice and encouraging words.  I have a lot planned for this map so any tips ideas suggestions are always welcomed.

Well the map crashed, and crashed badly, could not save it, so i restarted it.  Just to give you an idea the circles are anywhere from 140 to 170 acres.  Big farming for those, (in real life my grandparents farmed 12 circle of corn, and they were small farmers from where I grew up, and was farmed all eight row equipment).   Four farms all named after my great grand parents.  Also there will be a hidden moonshine still, and you will have to hunt for locals who are going to be buy your illegal shine, because we all know sometime farming is hard, and could use a little extra money.

Shadow lodges, I am from Wood River, Nebraska and I have been to the Imperial area many times. The map looks good and I am looking forward to seeing it when you release it.

Slowboat, i am trying to give the feel of that western Nebraska big circles, rolling pasture land and canyon lands... If GE would be better at big maps, I would do the whole county, but I don't know how many people would like to drive 30 miles into town...

I am trying my best to make it a good mix, and hopefully the things I like others will like.

I been working a lot with the terrain texture, trying to get something that looks like the sand and limestone formation that are under the hills and canyon lands.  Also add a sell point for hay.

My advice..save early and often!  Always have a recent backup that you can revert to in case things go t$ts up.  It's easy to get lost in what you're doing and forget to save frequently until you learn the hard way by losing a days worth of work because GE crashes.  Looks like a great start!   (y)
