As promised, here is the result of much work in Google's fantastic Sketchup program. These maps are worthy of spots here in the Finished Maps forum but this project is far from over. The Golden Tower is mostly finished and will be a separate entry.

I have included several versions in an attempt to make this map usable for a number of different campaign settings. I have also included some artistic images of the city as well as a VERY beta nighttime shot. Im still very new to Lightup so a high quality night version of TYr might be a ways off yet.

Cartographers, I give you the City of Tyr, a city of violence and intrigue in the heart of the Athasian desert wastelands!

The watercolor one's at such a shallow angle, though, that it'd be really difficult to use it as a map with places marked on it.

What format was this thing created in? Is it a 3D model that can be rotated?

@Toff - I believe it is in Google Sketchup...

Yup I can rotate and zoom in however I want to get an angled shot. If you guys like the watercolored shot theres so many different things I can do like that with a few mouse clicks you mind would be blown. Heres a small taste of what can be done, I included a pencil outline of the whole city which is a nice and clean version that could be used in any setting.

I really like the third one...

Yeah that third one is me messing around with Lightup. Once I figure out how to work that plugin the rednders will be much higher quality as you can somewhat see in that shot.

All the links are broken, and I'd really like to see this. :(

Can anyone share?

Alas, the Wayback Machine could not retrieve the images, either. This is why we prefer folks to upload their images here instead of linking to them. Vanishing websites have devoured a lot of good work, unfortunately.
