So I decided to use this challenge to redo Gothehamstadt (The City at the River Gothe) - the capital of our LARP-campaign-country.
I started a map on that place a while back here (http://www.cartographersguild.com/town-city-mapping/22305-gothehamstadt.html) yet I was not really happy with it ...

At the moment, we are creating a steampunk setting set 200 years after the 'fantasy-medieval-times'

So I will try to map the City at two time periods.

Not much to see, yet - just coastal/river outline ...

Don't forget to add "October 2013 entry in your thread title" ;)

Hmm, I changed the Title, it didn't affect the thread title ...

A CL is probably going to fix it for you.

Yup, looks like another CL was already on top of this.

The relief is done - it will be a little different for the second map, due to the results of a severe earthquake sometime between the two maps ...

wow you like to challenge yourself, how did you come up with the nr 2500?

At 35,000 inhabitants that would be 14 per building ... some overlapping taken into account it comes to about 20 persons which kind of seemed reasonable ...

I was not as productive, with my map, last week, as needed - so I can't say if I will have a acceptable entry when this challenge is done ...

First map - now onto the second one ...

This one might get some labeling but only if there is time in the end.

As the time is running out, I scrapped the idea of doing a steampunk-map and went with a modern metro map which is about 300 to 400 years after the first map ...

Good Work Eric, that certainly is 2 very different maps of the same place!
