    Wip Los Angeles Map (WIP)

    I've been working and testing a lot on a big LA map lately. I came to the map below, which is just a small part of the entire map for tests (uncomplete, but with a lot of things already). It's a view near Orange, the whole map will be near 9700x7200 pixels and centered on LA itself, of course.
    It's based on an OSM map.
    And I would be glad to have your views on it guys. What would you improve/change completely?

    This is taking a lot more time than I expected... Anyway, this is the upper-left part of the map, at different stages...
    And looking at it, I'm thinking that the green of the non-constructed zones is just too strong.

    That'll be an epic map! I love that green tone, actually. Gives some great contrast to the orange while complementing the brown and blue. I really like how you're showing the terrain and buildings in this one too.

    Really cool relief shading and perfect use of open street map data, i prefer your colors Maybe you can work a bit more your orange roads to make them fit with the relief, no good advices to do that, maybe a tiny transparency on the road layer?

    Yeah, that green is nice too! Though the map lacks a little in contrast now, in my opinion… I'm going to suggest the opposite of Francissimo, and say brighten up the roads!

    Thanks Francissimo! I've been tempted to do this old project because of your own cities maps

    I can't just play with transparency, because I haven't the base map for that... but I can brighten up the roads. So here it is. Don't pay attention to the problems between the different parts, I'll rework this later...

    I agree with Lingon that the map lacks of contrast. A bit better with the latest version but still.
