Thanks for the feedback/replies, everyone... And by everyone, I mean Prime. (and yes, everyone after my post prior to that)...
...it's been awhile, because I've been procrastinating, and trying to lead less of a secluded lifestyle...
Anyway here's what happens when I procrastinate:

WIP images of the Imperial City in Chapter 3:


It's basically just the buildings, near the sea-port (which will be 3 times larger, than it is now). The more extravagant, gothic-architectural buildings are gonna be farther back from the sea, closer to the cliff face, that the entire 3,000 year-old palace is built into...


Yes, I'm fully aware that the buildings suck, and are a just a bunch of painted boxes - it's purposely done.The buildings are placeholders - it's a Work In Progress, and there's gonna be 3 times the buildings there are now, with more detail. I'm not really asking for criticism, on the architecture, just yet, I'm just looking for criticism, on the concept - the pictures are like an animatic for a film. Boxes, and shapes, just giving you a basic idea of the final product - even though the pictures don't even begin to do the final product justice - buildings are gonna be much more detialed, and the background should be surrounded, by a cliff, with a palace to the West, and the ocean to the east....

...if you can use you imagination...what do you think of the idea, and the concept?

Chapters 2 and 3 are gonna be finished before the first one, at this rate...
not likely...But scripting is SOOOO boring, and time-consuming...

You're probably wondering how these two totally diferent environments come together in the story. Well, all I'm gonna say for now (and until I've released Chapter 1), is - this medival-gothic-renaissance/pre-industrial, type planet, that the main characters crash-land on - is in an uncharted territory beyond the outer-rim, on the bordering edge of a small, neighboring star-cluster.
The systems' planets in the cluster have always been unquestionably labeled, as lifeless rocks by scout probes, so none of the exploration organizations have bothered to make a 2-year hyperspace jump, just to explore the barren systems. Due to this fact, the pre-industrialized civilizations that populate the planet, have had no contact with any outside worlds...

Anyway, that's most of the logic behind it. But there's a huge back-story, of how these people came into being, on this planet, that the two main characters will crash on...

At this point, I just wish I could afford actors, so I can make this into a fan-film (I almost hate to call it that), it would take less time to make...
...I just wish I could project images from my head, and tell the story, that way.

Anyway, until that technology becomes available, I'm gonna keep working...
...Back to scrpting - for Chapter 1...
