In this speed art video, you can see the workflow I use to create not just one map, but reusable parts for many maps by creating a Symbol Library. First, I draw out the parts I may wish to use, then set them us as a smart symbols and save them into a library. Finally, I use the symbol library to VERY quickly (under 7 minutes!) create a space station side-view for High-Space. This is the same technique used to design all the top-view starship maps in High-Space.
If I get enough comments on this video, I will put in a little extra work and create a full set of downloadable symbol libraries and a template for all to share. Yah!
