for post-apoc reference: GooBing Detroit
« on: May 30, 2014, 12:42:15 PM »
I was a big fan of the TV series Life After People (and the non-fiction book it was originally based on) and fascinated with, well, how fast many of the things around us would break down without our influence to keep it going.

Along those lines, I present GooBing Detroit. A guy is just taking pictures from streetviews from a few years ago, and comparing them to how they look a few years later.

Yes, I know it's only sort of post-apocalyptic (like Detroit!) but I thought it would be decent inspiration for putting together your more modern wasteland setups.

I live only a few miles from Detroit and I can verify that you feel very creepy in that city and expect a zombie/alien/mutant to spring out of every abandoned house.  I used to look at photos of Pripyat for post-apoc inspiration...now Detroit fills the reference need.   :'(   
I am not a quack!  I'm a mad scientist.  There IS a difference!

Wow, that is depressing.  I assume anyone buying those foreclosed properties at auction has to pay up the outstanding tax/fines?
If there is no physical property (ie just the vacant lot) is that still the same? Do you pay up for a house that does not exist any longer?

Depressing...yeah, thats the word.

I am quite shocked, to be honest, seeing how quick things are changing there.
Imagine living in one of those streets....

It leaves a kind of empty feeling watching the deterioration.
