    Alrighty - I think it is dang near done. I would GREATLY appreciate any nitpicking and what-not any of you have to offer. Once I have received plenty of feedback I will post it to the finished maps section.

    Seriously, if you have time, give it a looksy and see if you spot any glaring inconsistencies or what have you.

    Thanks as always, I really appreciate all the feedback I have received on here so far. I am already looking forward to my next map!

    Fantastic Work, Katerek! I don't really have any nit-picks to speak of, and look forward to seeing this work in the finished maps forum. I do have a question, though, and I apologize if it has already been answered elsewhere in this thread. Some of your numerals are bold, some are light. You have walls in both styles as well. I was wondering what they mean.

    No there is no real reason for the difference between bold and normal text. In fact, it is something I will most-likely change before posting it in the finished maps section. Actually, I had meant to do that already, but I forgot. Thanks for the reminder though!

    Awesome work and I have no more comments.
    Now, this is what I call a city
    Check out my City Designer 3 tutorials. See my fantasy (city) maps in this thread.

    let me know what you think in the comments there! I tweaked a few final things, added a couple handfuls of buildings and a few roads.

    A great map, I could see a whole living campaign from it.

    Congrats on the finished map.

    Finally a City Map that looks like a crowded place, not a collection of individual buildings!

    Good Job!

    Just stumbled across this. Very awesome. Quick question for ya, how did you pull off that water effect? I have been looking for an effect of that type for some time for my realistic maps.

    Sorry for the slow response - I had to have my gall bladder yanked and have been incommunicado of late.

    The water effect? Its pretty simple. I did a few random splotches of blue in photoshop and then applied a ripple effect followed by a frosted glass effect followed by another ripple effect. Each time I did ripples, I changed the settings a little.

    Its basically pure experimentation.
