    Couple thoughts.

    1. If the entire city is able to go to the arena, I think it is going to have to be much larger.
    2. If the culture doesn't have any superstitions or religious anxieties about the dead than your placement is ok, but if they do, would people really live that close to the dead (or potentially undead )
    3. I wouldn't worry to much about the estates. If you think about it, only so much wealth can flow into a given city, and probably only 1% of the population will really hold the largest portion of that and it will trickle and move about through the middle class and finally to the poor. So the question becomes just how much wealth is there and who are they? I would imagine that there aren't that many nobles in a city of this size.

    I have been enjoying watching this map come into what it is now, and I must say, its a beautiful map, and I love the style! I can't wait to see it finished!

    @Towser - Thanks, not sure if I'll ever get back to this one or not.

    What!? It would be such a waste to stop now. This map looks fantastic now and would look even better once it is finished. Besides, how can I rep you for it if you don't finish it.
    Cheers,

    We'll see...no promises though, I'm buried neck-ddep in this month's challenge at the moment. Maybe after that.

    OK, since there seems to be some interest in my finishing this, I've dragged it out of mothballs. Updates will be infrequent as it's on my work PC and can only work on it during down/slow times.

    Here is a very minor update... added a few more noble estates.

    If you use two layers for the roofs, you can makse hosues that have multiple roofs without the bevel making them misshapen.
    I did it in my carlsborg map by just copying the original layer and then deleting the lower roofs from the new layer.

    @Hoel - Thanks for the tip. I do something like that for the noble estates. The remaining houses, etc. have a really bad pattern overlay on them, one I need to replace - hopefully that will fix some of those issues.
