    Think I'm about done unless anyone notices something that I forgot. I don't have my fonts installed yet so my palette is rather limited; this is something called MoolBoran that I squashed to 75% height. I might upload something a bit smaller in pixel size so that I don't have to sacrifice quality in order to make the post file size limit. Haven't decided there; it's mainly an aesthetics thing and no real skin off my nose.

    Very nice map Ascension. I like the effects you added in the latest version.
    Check out my City Designer 3 tutorials. See my fantasy (city) maps in this thread.

    Wow.. Honestly, I wasn't sure how I felt about this map before, but you really pulled it all together with this last update. Definitely a contender!

    This came out very nicely.

    This filter(granulation), improved considerably the map, leaving it much more attractive.

    I agree with the others, this final version is awesome. I love the look of this especially the ships moving in the water.

    Stunner....absolute stunner. Now that the map has been filled in the wierd perspective eye-trick has gone (did you know it was going to do that?). The little boats with the wakes show off the scale gloriously.

    Can I give this maps two votes??

    To be very honest I never really saw the eye-trickery thing but if it's there then I rather like it...for some reason I have this compulsion to play games even with my art.

    It looks like a planned out city rather than a city that evolved but that's what I was going for. When you're a merchant prince with unlimited cash you can pretty much do anything you want...like tear down whole sections of a city to make it how you want it. I want the ruler-dude to be a pretty spoiled dictator type on par with some of the worst of the self-absorbed rulers we've seen throughout history (Caligula, the Borgia's, Louis XIV, Hitler, Kim Jung-Il, etc.).

    With a large navy you can pretty much control the sea which brings in lots of money with which one can buy lots of troops to enforce said dictates. So who is gonna challenge him? Maybe some farm boy...na too cliche. I personally like the idea of a brothel-keeper old lady who has the dirt on all of the big wigs in town that she can bring down at her whim. Not sure if that has ever been done before (old lady with fading beauty as puppet master controlling the underworld - thieves, pirates, etc.).

    I'd like to rep you, but I can't right now... must rep others first

    But this map just went from "really good-looking" to "M*F*-Awesome".

    Thanks, man I ran out of steam towards the end so that whole top section came out kind of weak...I need more paths and wells and stuff but I'm too busy to fix it up right.
