    Default The Port City of Amlathran

    My last city drove me to the brink of insanity, and now I'm back.

    Here is the base plan for the small port city of Amlathran, one of the six free cities (say that really fast ten times) of the Cothiqua Islands. Since it's not in the Dal Lands like my last city was I can try some new building types that wouldn't be found in Dal cities. Hello rounded stone towers and goodbye to the aversion to the colour red, basically this city is going to have more of a European feel. To preserve my insanity the city is going to be smaller, but when have I ever kept anything small and simple? While smaller it will also be a little more lively and characterful as in there will more variance in the building shapes, a few more misc features and other signs of life like boats and other vessels. I'm also looking to achieve more of a tropical look to my city, just to make it more interesting and break from my other darker maps.

    The basic plan has been drawn up and is quite simple. The purple is where the walls, towers and castle will be, the grey is the main roads and city square, the brown is the lower end wooden roof houses outside the city while that ugly peach colour is the higher end tiled roofed houses inside the city. More to come soon.

    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...

    Well there must be something in it thats drawing me back.

    Anyway, update! I've down the main roads, walls, towers and docks, going to go back and make the battlements on the towers neater. Everything is done to the scale of 2 pixels = 1 foot, so as an example those walls are 15 feet thick. As you can see, this place is going to be much smaller than my last one and I couldn't be more relieved, though I probably do something crazy that makes to change that
    More to come soon.

    I'll certainly be watching the development of this map with interest - your other city maps are very inspiring.

    I've gotta stop scaring myself like that. Being the idiot that I am I accidently saved over my own work, fortunately I have simplified the process enough that only a half hours work and most of it was saved. I will still have to work on the coast to get it looking right again. Anyway, here's some progress, I've put down most of the houses inside the walls as well as putting down the road plans and warehouses.

    More to come soon.

    I hope you'll make one that's a bit better looking than mine :-)
