View Full Version : Town and City Icons

There is surely a thread for this topic already, but I couldn't find it.

I have a map that I would like to add towns, outposts, and cities to. My map is of a very large area (entire continent), so the city icons don't have to be very big or complicated. I have tried to make them myself but I haven't been having much luck. The cities aren't super important for my needs, so I don't want to spend a lot of time making them. Are there pre-made icons I can use? I found some Tolkien style icons on this site but they seem to clash with my art style.

Here is my map:

With photo-realistic maps at the continent scale, cities would be as invisible as individual trees.
Since any 'symbol' would probably look out of place, might I suggest something generic like a colored dot.

That's true, but this is for a board game. The scale doesn't really matter. I have considered using colored dots. I need some way of representing a city, regardless if it is realistic or not.
