Starting on a small enclave of buildings for the British occupiers. These are high end, with quarried stone and tile roofs. Huts for the peasants are made from mud bricks, which turn a pale yellow green after a few days and look like vomit.

What do you think of the color scheme?

Looks good! Dropping it on some landscape might give more context. Do you have a mat yet?

Are the roof tiles not made of the same mud as the peasants' huts?

Here's kind of my thinking. In the first place, I doubt it rains enough on Mars to need tiles, or even a peaked roof. But I'm just tired of all the white washed north African buildings. So I want something different.

Now I'm thinking I'll swap: make the walls colorful and the tiles red.

Now thinking this is the East India Trading Company's Martian "compound" where it's executives live.

Wow. Is that front door opening just 6mm tall?

I'm impressed. That is so much detail for something that little.

The grids you see are 1"

Yeah, the door is just 4mm tall. The windows are 5mm…
