    Map an Old school city map with CC3

    This is a large city done simply in the style of the old Judges Guild city maps. Actually a good look, I thought. Done with simple connecting paths for roads, then hollow polies with 6" walls for buildings (interior walls added later).
    The map is huge, and to see the detail, needed to be printed at about 3'x4'. I am showing a low quality overview of the whole city, and a detailed close up of one section to show detail level done for entire city. This map took about 20 to 30 hours (much of which is labelling time). I also did detail maps for the citidels, sewer maps, and crypt maps.

    Okay, I occasionally spend upwards of 4 hours on one map, but nothing on the scale of 30 hours.

    WAY out of my league.

    Nice piece of work, very old school.

    Wow, I just noticed in the small jpeg that I have a broken poly... which is why the ocean has invaded a building! Ah, the fun of using CAD programs.

    30 hours is about average for a decent map. A full world map would take about 30 to 50, and the secondary detail maps another 50 to 100 hours. I have worlds that I have many hundreds of hours into maps, detail maps, and glossaries. I'm doing this tonight mostly because I am too lazy to work on my current project...

    Thanks,
    one of the things I love about this style of city map, is that is captures this sense of this entire world behind the walls. Imagine the scope of this city, most of the poor inhabitants would never likely see the world beyond their quarter, much less outside of the walls. An entire world of adventure lies within each district, in the streets, in the buildings, and below them.
