Here are a couple of outfits for the adventure:





And also, I have maxed my first captain to level 10! :D 
This is Warlord Geckyll'savia The Intelligent, looking very fearsome:

Looking down at a small camp. (The second area of the adventure, pretty much complete. ;D)

*stares with huge eyes*
Wow...... How many areas are there.

You'll never know why.

Thanks.  :)
I'm not sure what I should count as an area, but there are two camps outside the city, and then it is the city itself, which will have loads of buildings of course, but more notable places will be four military installations, two refugee camps, two government buildings, and three taller towers. All of these will not be used in the quest itself, but most will, and some will have interiors.

And, yes, I expect a fierce struggle with the complexity meter.  :-\

Hm. As it is now, I will sadly not be able to complete the adventure I have written about here until Maxis patches the game. It is because of this bug: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0SbLX2v7OY
It pretty much turns off the AI of creatures that are inside or too close to buildings (as you see in the second example in the video, they just stand around doing nothing), and there is no workaround that is good enough.  :(

Though I have been working on something else, a less complex mission that will involve less fighting and more thinking. It takes place on this island/outpost/city:

Yep, sucks big time.  It pretty much made me scrap my second adventure I was on the process of creating.  Went for an outdoors adventure, but I would love to be able to have adventures were fights happen *inside buildings*.  It's not so much that it turns off AI from any building, only if the building has structures stacked or parts embedded into other parts, which is pretty much most complex buildings.

Well, I'm content to let my old adventure rest for a while. The new one is almost complete though!  ;D Just needs some testing and extra polishing.
Here's a trailer I made for it:

Cool. How'd you make flying buildings though?

It will be out in a couple of days probably, it depends on how many crippling bugs I find. =)
