Swamp Outpost Preview.

A little close up section of the swamp outpost map. The concept is a little outpost made of various storage containers, and a marina made out of decollates from an old spaceship.   FUN FACT: This layout is loosely based on the visitor center at the... (Read More)

Crashed Ships Interior

 This is the interior of the crashed ship. Keep in mind that the deck plan may end up very different in future incarnations of the ship. Think of this is a "custom interior" to a common hull type.  (Read More)
