How to figure a large desert city (about 100,000 inhabitants) ?
I'm actually trying to draw a city map, a big city with about 100,000 inhabitants. But... I'm not sure what is the best way to do this.
If I figure every house and building, the map shall be... more than huge, I guess. Don't know if this is a good idea.
But how could I figure less than every house ? Only display districts and important buildings such as keeps, temples and so on ?
Another question would be : how dense the road net should be ? I saw straight-lined roads on some maps, and twisting on others. Maybe a mix of both, for such a large city ? Large and straight roads in importants districts (governement, noblemen...) and twisting for the others ?
Thank you for your advices ! :)
