Default Starting area progress - Burrwitch Prison

We've made great progress with the playable environments over the past couple years, refining some of the original ones and adding new ones but not much had happened with the starting town until recently.

As long-time followers of the project will recall, the starting "town" is a small survivor enclave set within the ruined walls of the Burrwitch Prison, situated on a rocky outcropping between two rivers called Devil's Crossing. For a long time, we had an exterior wall but the inside was sort of an amatuer-hour collection of mismatched floors and walls from the house set, plus other random assets jammed together to make a stand-in prison interior.

At long last though, the prison has gotten some attention in our efforts to prepare the beginning segment of the game for alpha (don't your breath yet, it is still months away but we're getting closer ).

We still need to populate with NPCs and some additional vendor type stands will be going like, like a blacksmith, but you can see the basic structure is in place and looking not too shabby.... well, uhh... actually I guess it is pretty shabby looking but it's supposed to be, I mean, it is a ruined prison after all. The next phase will be adding refugees and quest-giving NPCs to populate the cells and interior courtyard.

Anyway, take a look for yourselves:

Where is the beer stand?

It looks great, the only downside (aside of the lack of booze) is the prison bares (bare not bar!). Since they are all the same and repeat so often in a row, it looks weird.

I'm impressed

Prisons aren't weird. They are in long rows, repeating themselves and looking bare. Only comment I have is that the cells are a bit large and probably meant for groups instead of 2-3 people.

Yeah, the cells are larger than you'd typically expect but we decided to make them more like group cells since that worked better for gameplay / visibility in terms of being able to turn them into small rooms with refugees huddled together. Originally we had smaller cells but you couldn't fit much of interest in them.

Looks like a nice starting point for the game. I wonder how this will turn out once everything is set in place.

Prisons actually differ country from country...in South America large "group cells" are actually the norm.

Anyways looks fantastic, nice improvement over the original.
