    Map The City of Tía: various versions

    I always wanted to create a city map. So, I’m proud to present you my first one. I have another project of city map in my head (it will be a pirates' den) but I think, I’ll wait before doing that one. The map of the City of Tía took me many time these three last weeks and I wasn’t able to continue the writing of my novel. So, now I’m going to concentrate me on the novel .

    At the origin, Tía was just a village absolutely not intended to become a capital. When the peoples of the North of the Pontrésie obtained their independence during the war against the pirates, the central and strategic position of Tía at the crossing of important roads made of this big village the indisputable capital of the new established country (the Tía country).

    To preserve the "village" aspect, I voluntarily made so that buildings were not agglutinated.
    To create this map, I used a lot Ascension’s tutorial as well as the technique I exposed here to make the night effect and the lights but I adapted it a bit in order to have the more realistic result possible.

    I put here differents versions (by night, with or without clouds).
    I hope you’ll like it.

    Looks awesome, man. Nice.

    It does look great, but one thing that gets me is that I'd rasterize the city walls and bridges. They stick out just a bit too much for my taste. Otherwise, cool map!

    Thank you for the comments.
    Concerning the walls and the bridges, they are already rasterized. But I'll try to change it a bit when I'll have free time
