    I might just keep picking on things just so you will keep telling me more of the story (I might want to live there! )

    I really like this last version.
    I dunno if i am sure, but guess is some details/ divisions in the roofs will give some "reality irregularity".

    I loved the idea of Zeppelins, i just can imagine how it will be. Just a idea, to not forget the high levels buildings for VIP airlifts. Some ppl will like to go to labs, political centers and events using Zepelins what will give a medieval hi-tech touch.

    Well, I haven't decided everything yet, but Eldoran and Argona had already a lot of background written, so I could speak of it for a long time (or not so long, cause I'm not so fluent in english )

    I've thought about that (adding towers or domes, inner roof divisions...), but my scale isn't really a good one for that... Besides, I already have a lot of things (too much probably) to add on the map.

    There are three magic big pillars in the city designed for its magical protection. One effect is to forbid air devices (technical or magical) to get too close to the city (except for the skyport of course). But, there is a "transport in common" device which relies on cables and is like a "suspended tramway". I just haven't indicated it yet...

    Hello:

    Overall I like the map and concept. Looking at the history of airships on earth you can see that they required a great deal of area just to land. The hanger(s) that were in New Jersy and Germany for example had plenty of open space around them. This was due to logistical reasons for dealing with airships. Then you have the Empire State Building in New york city. It was designed for airships to dock at the top of the tower. Also are there any private fields docking areas for the VIP air ship owners or government use?

    Thanks Tracker,

    I must confess that I did not take that in consideration. But, well, some of the buildings close to the "skyfront" are docks, shipyard or hangars actually. So I suppose some could shelter some zeppelins!

    OK, I have the buildings for the entire city now. Only the "under city" is missing right now... But I think I'm gonna try some labels and indications right now!

    Always struggling with labels... and I clearly need your point of view on this one (an objective view ).
    I know its french names, but did you read the street names :
    a) easily
    b) with high concentration and eye fatigue
    c) not at all
    d) joker

    Thanks by advance (and by the way, I wrote a "skyfront avenue" )

    The street labels aren't cleary legible. I'd pick up a more legible font to do them.

    Looks really good, Ilanthar!
    About the names, I'll answer something in between a and b. No eye fatigue, but it did take some concentration

    I hate to say it, because the font *looks* like it belongs there, but... it was a little hard to read in places.

    It's not a big deal if your map will always be this size, but, if it were, say, in a book, it would be impossible

    It looks so awesome though !!
