Station Map

Post by onleavedontatme » #326571

I realized at some point I'd probably have to do this myself and have been kicking around ideas for it/trying to figure out how to best tackle actually going about a multi z map. Finally started actually mapping today, and started with the bridge (which is obviously set underground).

Image

The bridge will probably be underneath the gateway/shuttle landing platform, which will be the only part of the jungle Z that doesn't break to chasm so you can't just fall into it.

Tried to make the bridge have plenty of cover/be a fun place to have gunfights in but I'm also worried I may have gone overboard, so feedback is welcome.

This actually looks pretty nice for firefights. I'd like to request the airlock-style sorta entryways that most other station's bridges have so I don't have to baton down a greyshit every time I enter.

The downside of an isolated bridge is that there's less reason to be in there. Less activity in the bridge means less firefights. It's a problem my map has too.

Speaking of isolation, be cognizant that dead-end rooms see less traffic than through-rooms, so it's likely that the office on the left will go completely unused. It might be interesting to connect that room to maint, as that would create a sneaky entrance into the bridge.

I don't want to focus too much on appearance, but you could really do with making everything larger and more grand.

I'm aiming for it to not be too isolated. The bridge is still dead center of the map and will have an elevator near by though that is obviously not apparent yet in the pictures.

Office will probably be unused yeah, though I think that is true of most of the head meeting offices.

Most of my maps end up gigantic/empty (see: space battle away mission) so I may have overcompensated and made it a bit small.

The shuttle platform sits pretty much directly over the bunker, and is surrounded by a main hall loop where various departments will have their front facing windows. The RD and HoP offices both connect to an elevator that will be close to the bridge/bunker.

unless you did some reworking and changed the 4 tile hallways already you could just pull the office farther into the hall and that would give you some room to set a table in somewhere

Is the lava moat part of the final design? If so I suggest a small perimeter of regular ground between the lava the walls so people can break into the windows but you can also push them out, they get blown by atmos or accidentally fry themselves when running away. Pretty nerve wracking to navigate as an ash ligger on mining when breaking into mining base so should give greys a thrill.

I've not had much time to be on a computer in the last week but I got a bit of science done. Also the lava bridges have windows etc and lead to a hallway but that isn't enough to be worth screencapping.

How are ladders going to work? If they activate when you step on them it might be awkward to have them right in front of the RnD door.

Also, don't forget the R-walls.

I mean, it looks a bit too open is what I mean, like there's space not being utilised. I feel like it should be in its own dedicated room but still fairly open (like how box does it).

That's just my opinion at any rate

Library/Janitor/Disposals/Kitchen are all in the northern bit of the main loop

Image

The DnD room is underground (as is the librarians study). The disposals dumps trash into that pool of lava in the bottom left. The red Xs are what I'm using to stay aligned if that helps.

Librarians secret room looks like shit right now so I'm planning on redoing that. Everything underground will eventually have maint* connecting or surrounding it rather than being in an empty wasteland.

*I might give up and throw it on github and hope someone else wants to map maint though I'm not sure how to make it good

The undergound librarian idea is AWESOME but I was hoping it would look different than the rest of the library, other than that this map is doing some really cool stuff like the chasm disposals that connects to janitor's office and stuff

I really like the library layout, it feels just right for some reason.

On the other hand, the stairs right in front of the RnD door seem out of place, even a semirealistic workplace wouldn't have a staircase two steps past the entrance. They should ideally be on a niche in the wall somewhere, or on the end of a hallway.

This is such a minor point, but having disposals connect to a well-lit hallway diminishes its mystique. Maybe connect it to a maint tunnel instead.

As per Kor's request and noted in the planetstation development thread, I'll be taking over the mapping duty for planetstation's cavern (underground) and jungle (surface) z-levels. As an idea of what the project might look like, here's a bit of a teaser of Kor's previous bridge area compared to the recent (details not finished/finalized). The cavern level will feature predominately darker tiles and colours whereas the upper will focus on lighter colours to reflect their relation.

Proper electronics, atmoshperics, cords, piping, etc to come later. The lower level will feature the permanent brig, a morgue, a sanitarium and infirmary, and the "education" chamber.

The medical department will be a bit more dynamically shaped in that instead of focus behind shifted to one side, it is angled with two entrances in a way that should allow medical to have more diverse coverage and interaction spread throughout the department. The morgue, virology, and additional assets will be featured on the lower level. With the new science updates leaving scientists with less full-interaction duties with a possible shift of toxins to atmospherics and techwebs being more of a passive design, genetics may be moved to science while cloning will stay under the medical department.

Upper Level:
Spoiler:

Medical will, additionally, be featured as being directly across (or under) security, which should allow for an interesting flow of gameplay dynamic. The two departments will have a joint security checkpoint on the left end of the hall which will feature an airlock that players can use to exit the station and enter the outside jungle area.

As a bit of a fun aside project away from the main departments, I decided to start on the library. I'll be carrying over the same idea that the game room and librarian's personal study will be located on the cavern level for aesthetic purposes.

A quick update on the library. I wanted to start on the service department, but due to the library's width I couldn't see a plausible way of shoving it all on the right side of what will be the hall leading up/from arrivals. I decided to get a bit creative and merged the bar with the library in an attempt to create a "net cafe." I believe the fusing of these two areas will make the library a bit more of a circulated place due to its close proximity to the "net cafe." Hydroponics and the kitchen will be featured across the hall on the right side.

Some more updates on the service department. As I was still being rather indecisive with how the library was strewn out, I took a break and started working on the other half of the service department and have made the food court, kitchen and kitchen coldroom, as well as the theatre and its backstage. Hydroponics will be featured to the right of the kitchen, possible adjustments to come. The net cafe has had a slight adjustment made to it, while the library itself has been overhauled completely.

Today has been fairly productive. I started working on hydroponics and settled with a layout I'm fairly happy with. There will be windoors separating the counter between the kitchen and hydroponics as well as a maintenance door where the plating opening in the wall is in the hydroponics room.

After taking a small break from development, I decided to start working on the cargo department today and have more or less finalized it. The miner's shuttle pod has been replaced with an express elevator down to hell, guaranteed to get you to your destination without power failure along the way or your money back! As opposed to the regular "lower-level" which the other elevators will bring you to, the mining elevator will bring you down to a lavaland on a different z-level in a separate part of the underground.

Not ok. The rest looks good though.
The three main maps in rotation (box/meta/delta) all have an armory bordering space though.
Space requires special equipment to enter and not die to, the outside on planetstation has no such requirement (as far as I know).

As for the other stuff, I like the designs but the library/bar and hydro are EXTREMELY cramped. Imagine 3 botanists trying to work in that space, or 5 people bumbling around in the bar. Just not much room to move without running into someone.

Not a lot, but as most people seemed warm to the idea of the waste disposal line running through the custodial storage room, I decided to move the janitor's office close to cargo and add the waste disposal line. The chasm will lead down to the second level underground to a small trash compactor room of sorts.
