    Fictional Astoria, as I started building the map prior to the town being settled on. May add a tower though, but PZ does not like curves. :(

    Ok that's all for tonight folks, but hopefully that helps everyone get a feel for part of the town for next lore. Please keep in mind that the map is still a work in process, so you may see a few blank spots or cosmetic issues, but they will be fixed prior to launch.

    You may be asking "Cid, you beautiful bastard, where is the Mall!?!" to which I would tell you, yeah right, you don't get to see that yet! :)

    If anyone would like more details of certain buildings or more details screenshots, please let me know, I'll see what I can do for you.

    While I'm giving suggestions, it'd be nice to see a house of worship in Project Zomboid that isn't for a sect of Christianity. It was originally my understanding that Astoria was going to be sort of a smaller town, so it'd make sense for there to only be churches as is usually the case in smaller towns, but seeing all these screenshots makes me think it may be more populated than I had originally thought. And with a bigger population comes religious diversity. So a mosque or a synagogue might be cool to see, albeit a small one. Otherwise, the poor Muslims and Jews of Astoria will have quite the drive ahead of them to go pray. Yet. that is the unfortunate reality for many of religious minorities in smaller towns, so don't feel like you have to build them.

    What you /should/ build though is more gas stations. NEVER TOO MANY GAS STATIONS. And Starbucks. Awesome job with what you've shown, mate. I'm impressed, yet your building prowess always seems to drop my jaw, so nothing new there.

    Oh, maybe a graveyard on the outskirts of town could be neat too. Those aren't too difficult to build and (potentially) adds a fun rp element.

    I played on one PZ server once that had a really cool museum with both art w/ detailed descriptions and medieval weapons and armor w/ equally detailed descriptions. It was fun pre-outbreak for the rp and there was a super cool mission post-outbreak to get through the tough security to loot dope medieval weapons and shit. Not sure if that'd fit the vibe for this lore, but it sure was neat.

    I feel like I'm giving too many suggestions for a thread that in no way asked for suggestions but only is to showcase work, so I'll shut up now. The showcased work is dope. And who says old age slows you down?

    (Most decently populated towns have a fancy restaurant, and even in 2006 there were tons of medical marijuana dispensaries around Oregon. Now I'm done.)

    No Worries on suggestions, some of things you mention are present, just haven't posted screenshot of it yet.

    Indeed, these things happen when it's still a work in progress. Red Question marks are the bane of my existence.

    Also before I forget, big shout out to Jack Rogers for contributing a few buildings. I know he's working on his own map, but every little bit helps.

    Not sure how 'shitty' it is, but here's a trailer park next to a shitty gas station. Oh and if you like Hockey, we have a hockey.... rink? Stadium? i don't know, I don't watch hockey.

    Cid, as much as I joke that you're old (and you are) you can build a map damn fuckin' good. And punch a snobby radio talk show host. I mean what?

    1.) I'm in my prime.
    2.) Don't give me too much credit yet, most of these are prebuilt buildings.
    3.) You're goddamn right I punched him! :)
