I don’t know, Talon’s been away for quite some time now.
This may turn out to be a very long post about progress.
In terms of creating the futuristic city, I’m able to create the indoor environments fairly easily. When I’m currently trying to make the outdoor environments such as the motorway or the cityscape, it becomes a really hard job because when I try to visualise the city, it turns out much worse than expected and is barely detailed. It’s also alot more difficult because I don’t really know exactly what a city in the future looks like; I’ve only seen cities in movies and from images. The hardest part is designing the path between the buildings, because the path will look lifeless between two really huge buildings. One day, I will be able to just visualise it, and it’ll be there.
I haven’t met up with my characters yet. Currently I’m working for Eden’s (the futuristic city-in-progress) Security Regiment, to make sure everything is in order. Since I’m in a world with epic technology and warfare, the “city-in-progress” is quite peaceful. I’ve ran into a group of rebels whilst guarding the Dream Park (a place for tourists, it’s like a huge amusement park), and they’ve been causing mischief. One of the rebels transformed into a minotaur-like creature, and he challenged me to a battle. I won, but the ‘minotaur’ came back later where he picked a fight on a lower PSR officer (I was put in the Higher Class because I’ve had experience in the past)
I ran to the crowd (there was a crowd of about 300 people around the fight) and the two were constantly fighting each other. I went to break up the fight, but a tall man bounced into the ‘ring’, and killed the officer, and injured the ‘minotaur’. He had a dark mask on; he looked alot like a Dragoon Knight (the ones with spears). He stared at me bluntly, and then jumped off 10 seconds later.
The following day I was promoted to the Elite PSR Officer. There are only 10 of them patrolling the city, so I understood that the man who assigned the job to me trusted me. My job was to patrol Eden’s main shopping area - Elemental Quay.
The shopping centre was huge - it had neon lights (this part was easier to visualise, as I could use the ‘template’ from my local shopping centre) and it was busy. I was patrolling the city for 15 minutes, when suddenly a gunman that was wearing dark body armour ran into the centre, and spun his guns into automatic. His guns never seemed to run out of ammo. Everyone began to run, and I made a public announcement for everyone to evacuate to the Fire Gate (the emergency exit in case of emergency). I also asked for a few hundred PSR troops.
More gunmen jumped through the glass roof, using ropes that was attached to a helicopter. The leader was the ‘minotaur,’ and he wanted to gain control of the shopping centre for some reason. Suddenly, we (me and the lower rank troops) heard a huge stomping sound come from the distance. It was a huge dragon that was chasing us down. It devoured a few innocent people on its way. It was coming for us, and we found out it was the minotaur’s pet (even though he is in human form, I’ll refer to him as the minotaur).
We ran to the entrance, telling spare individuals to escape. At the entrance there were about 30 Hyperspeed Tubes - 15 of them lead into the shopping centre, 15 lead out. This meant only 15 of us could escape at a time.
There was a rush for us to enter the vehicles, which lead us into the tubes. We wanted to escape to the outskirts of the city for the time being, but the tubes re-directed us into a service next to the motorway - meaning lots of havoc.
That’s as far as I’ve got. It would be a lot more fun if the city was in full detail, but netherless it is fun and exciting. My mind comes up with really random scenarios, but they’re extremely action-packed and interesting. Tonight I’m going to concentrate on ‘building’ the city in my mind.
