View Full Version : City map: Argria for the CWBP

02-06-2013, 07:33 PM
Hi all,
This is a city map I did for the CWBP. I started it ages ago, when I was but a wee Guild novice, but never got around to finishing it. The file got up to 300Mb or so and I eventually started flattening pieces of it so I could get it finished without serious chugging. I'll link to the WiP thread here (http://www.cartographersguild.com/cooperative-worldbuilding-project/8176-[region-1][map-27][town-01]argria.html) so you can see how it developed and get a little of the story I developed for it if you're interested. Honestly, it could probably benefit from a border and nice decoration but I'm not sure what to do with that so I'm going to leave it as is. Hope you like it!

That is gorgeous! The shadow on your central building really makes the whole thing pop.

Yep, that one is going in my inspiration folder.

* sadly I cannot rep you at this time. =(

Inspiration folder, wow! Thanks, guys. And, Larb, since that means you've repped me recently I guess it's no bad thing. Thanks! :)

I like the city a lot, and, like Larb I will put the image into my "inspiration" folder.

If I can do a simply suggestion... try to add some crop fields around the city. Right now seems that the city was build in the middle of nowhere.

Thanks. It absolutely *was* built in the middle of nowhere! ;) i guess I'll gather up the bits of the story from the wip thread and bring them over here. The city'll make more sense if folks read all of that stuff.
