Mapmaking merry (2)

The flight paths of Porky's Expanse! may be growing slowly into bustling space lanes, but the mission remains the same. In just the same way, tenuous links may become major thoroughfares and well-worn dirt tracks be paved over, with purpose unchanged. Imagined landscapes are made real.

The first post in the series offered ideas found treading the paths of cyberspace, a range of approaches to mapmaking for wargaming and roleplaying, from 2D to 3D. This second post will too, but with an emphasis on giving an idea for a landscape a fixed final form. Stunning vistas await. Click and lose yourself somewhere out of this world.
