    Post Drylake City

    Here's a city map I made for my campaign that shows the damaged city of Drylake (Angrin), a city ruined by powerful earthquakes, drought and environmental disaster.

    Made in photoshop and intended to be an overview rather than a detailed map. There are no labels or scale and I had to get it done quick-style for a game so it's pretty basic without much variation in buildings and stuff. As I'm not intending to update it, I guess it qualifies as a finished map.

    Hope you like it.

    Welcome back! Very nice map. There are a few repeated textures outside the city, but I can overlook that with a city map this nice.

    That is a great map. Makes me wish I had not focused most of my skills into fractal terrain generation and color relief renders. I'm envious.

    I think this is fantastic! Have some rep! Love the whole look and feel. If this is a quick map for you, would love to see what you came up with if you spent any kind of significant time on it.

    It would fit right in with/on my map for this month's challenge.

    Take a look at the Tutorials. AidyBaby did a "AWESOME" city map tutorial that turned out just freaky super. I "think" it was the city of Gullside or something like that.

    Yeah I really like this too. I agree with an earlier poster about the repeating textures tho. From the small thumbnail I thought this map was covered with hexes until it opened. Generally you can fix that real easily by taking a texture and pasting it down into two or better three layers, each with the texture at different scales. They tend to all muddle together and it breaks up the pattern. Obviously those scales should not be multiples of each other so something like a x1, a x1.37 and a x1.72 or something like that should be perfect. Don't do a x1, x2 and a x3 or it will not work. Hope I explained that good enough.

    Great to see you back in the forums AidyBaby! That is a very nice city map. I won't bother pointing out the things that others have, and instead I'll just ask for more maps. Welcome back!
