Castle town base wall layout for "On Nemo's Back"- map. Going to add a castle, marketplace + houses.

thanks! I have already done the whole layout on paper. Just have to transfer it to 3d before the monthly challenge ends (so I can use the model there), or atleast that's my goal. I'm probably still going to post a separate map of the town even if it doesn't make the deadline.

Sorry guys, but I'll probably scrap this project as I don't have the motivation to finish it at the moment.

The Nemo's back map looks great as is, but I do think it would look even greater with an awesome town map integrated into it! I hope you can finish this town.

Hmmm, good point Karro. That might just give me some additional motivation to finish the map :)

Well here's a bit bigger version than on the monthly challenge thread.

Very cool Jykke! Great coloring also.

One comment though about the layout: normally I think there would be more open space around the castle, the buildings being situated nearer to the city walls.
The castle is the last retreat and if it's surrounded by open space that can be used as a killing ground. Buildings would give attackers an advantage (giving them cover and making it easier to scale the walls).

Yeah, It isn't authentic in that aspect. I have to remember that if I do another map like this! Thanks for the input :)

That's a nice map, I love the style.
