    So call me crazy, but I started work last week on the city of Sirilion. This is the largest city in my world. The first version took me 8 hours and then I deleted that one (it wasn't finished by a longshot). I started working on version 2, WIP below. General city layout is complete, although I might still change some things. It's obviously going to take many hours to finish. Most of the map will be covered in houses.

    The city is located near a river that has dug itself into a canyon over the years. So no docks as the city is on a higher elevation. Dikes have been built to change the flow of the river and the land behind it is used as farmland. I will do a full city writeup when the map is finished.

    It's going to be the palace.
    The domes are coming from the Symbol B catalog. There's some towers in there that can take the color you pick (I picked yellow for a golden look). Does that help?

    That's a trick question

    The city and surrounding farmland and villages have a population of about 50.000. Sirilion is located in a very strategic position with lots of resources and fertile land.

    Please don't start counting the houses

    Heh. I can't count that high... lol... I was just wondering ... and I would start by measuring the square footage before I started counting houses to determine whether or not it was big enough

    Well, this city will be pretty big once I am finished with it. There will be enough houses to host thousands and thousands of people. Some houses will contain only one family (but families of course now being larger than in our modern days) but many will contain several families.

    And then there's the towns and villages in the immediate vicinity not shown

    I had a few hours to spare and made some additions to this map. It's not even half done and I am getting depressed

    Hmm... I could have sworn I replied .... but I will again... Generally when I map a town, I use the rule of 15 ..... buildings = 15% of the population and multiply the population by 1500 and that will give you the overall square footage that the city would cover... mind you, these are just my little gage that I use adjusting of course for the type of city I want.... These also tend to break down at cities that have less that 500 ..... It's worked for me so far
