    One thing I did notice is that your bridge isn't casting a shadow. No big deal, just wanted to point it out.

    rotfl! Love the vampire bridges idea!
    anyway, they are little more than placeholders atm... my main concern is on the functionality side, as they *should* be lifted... but they are WAY too long compared to the houses... being my first city map (and second overall) I still have big issues dealing with the scales lol

    Changed and added a bunch of things:

    - South there is a very big tannery. That one is famous and produce some of the finest leathers and export all over the reign and beyond... one little drawback is the sewage water it produces. More toward the west there is the main warehouse with a pier. Notice the little telepheric to bring goods up and down the cliff. The main road was paved by the tannery owner and it stretches out to reach his big manor right above the hill.
    He was basically the undisputed master of this town and his surroundings until some time ago. Attacks by goblins, trolls etc from the north were growing bigger and more frequent and people started to leave the region. The Tannery owner asked for some help to the King, hoping he'll send some soldiers, but the King decided to appoint a new Baron, after a lot of time and leave the issue to him.
    The new Baron rebuild the manor, adding a new wall and started building a huge maw and palisade around the town. To convince the people not to leave, he reduced taxes heavily to the poorest one, becoming a hero for them... but maybe he will soon discover that Trolls would be the least of his problems in the future...

    Sorry for my english

    Very cool! I love all the detail you put into it. Maybe you could try to lower the saturation of the water a bit? It looks too blue to my eye...

    Worked quite a lot on this one!

    Remade all the trees and forest as I was not satisfied, way better now in my opinion.
    Changed saturation etc on all the water as per Shatternherz suggestion
    Added the fisherman's house etc on the little island (it's not really a simple fisherman as you can see by the lavishing house... where do he get all those richness?
    A huge amount of try and error gone into the southern fields, but now I'm quite satisfied and the final method is not too time consuming (excluding all the trying ). The original houses and farms are now abandoned and ruined as the continuous trolls' attacks during the last time convinced the farmers to make a small, fenced village to better defend themselves.
    The map is almost done... I really need C&C now

    Almost looks like a satellite photo. Awesome work. Re-coloring the water helped a lot.
