    Created in: Photoshop

    Review
    Thanks to some community input and rating efforts, this 2010 insanely detailed city map from LonewandererD gets a show on the front page! This post doesn't have the full size image, so make sure you check the original post for all the detailed goodness!

For your convenience I have translated this map into English but I do have the map written in Dal if anyone is interested.
    Congratulations on your second Cartographers' Choice map award!

    RobA How exactly did you manage to Post 20 days in the future?

    And how did I manage to post ahead of your post which came first?

    Posts made on August 10 appear before posts made on August 30. That's why we're above him.

    Either he or we are having difficulties with temporal stability. Always hard to tell which.


    LonewandererD -- Wonderful map!

    Oh my, thank you I honestly never expected this, this map was so long ago I would have thought it would have slipped into the fog somewhere.

    People come and people go. I walk amongst them, I see their faces; but none see mine. I pass them in the streets but nary a glance is spared my way, for what interest would they have in a Wanderer? Not of this world... Forever Alone... Forever Wandering... LoneWandererD...

    My awesome ninja admin fail powers. That's how! They also managed to break the front page...which I hope should be fixed now, too.

    I actually had more planned for this map but trying to load up the file now into photoshop still crashes the program so I think i will leave it there

    Congrats! It's a real beauty and it deserves the recognition even after two years or so
