    The red lines for the air-rail are barely legible.

    I love your map, it somehow makes me feel good to look at it. It's probably the french, but I imagine it being built in the same style as Paris, only cleaner and less crowded and obviously in a different time… All the parks, and the big avenues … I'd like to go there

    Can we maybe get a picture of the whole city again? I would really like to see how the entire map looks now.

    Thanks Lyrillies!

    That's good to know since I imagine Argona as a mix of big 19th european cities (London, Berlin, Paris mainly). And I'm probably influenced the most by Paris and "Haussmann rules", of course

    @ - Max - : ha, good to know! I'll try to mute them a bit less.

    Very nice. There are a lot of things to like about this, especially the colors.

    I think you have found a good balance with the shadows. It allows the blocks to pop out when viewed zoomed out, but still allows for the map to be read like a street map when zoomed in enough to read the text.

    I am interested to see the full layout as well, including your legend.

    You found the balance for the shadows! It is a smooth depth effect.

    How long to finish?

    No, I mean't they're aren't very legible. So they'll probably have to be brighter or thicker instead.

    awesome, that is exactly how I imagine it! So obviously you did something very right, since it really conveys that atmosphere. Very interesting how that is even possible with nothing but a few shapes, colors and names.

    As for the red lines: I found them to be easy to spot and follow. Doesn't legible mean easy to read? But there's nothing to read on those lines? I guess I'm not getting it, sorry

    A good surprise indeed, I would not have imagine!

    - Max -, I think I haven' been clear in my last post A new test for air-rail lines and "more brightness".

    Here is the extended picture with the general layout of the Dökheim Quadrant (of course far from being finished).

    I used purple arrows for indicating stairs/elevators between the upper city and Dökheim. Is that enough legible? And the map globally?
