    Judging by how quick you got a city that big, you must have a quick way to draw the houses individually. If I where to draw individual houses I wouldn't progress quite that quickly. :S

    Awesome city by the way! Have some rep for this 'good kind of insanity'

    Hi everyone,

    unfortunately I had lots to do for my uni work and almost no time to work on the map last week.
    Yesterday I had a bit of free time and began to texturize it and start to place the streets. I'm quite happy with the textures so far, only the grass seems a bit of. Not sure though whether to keep the outline on the water or to change it against something more 'natural'.
    Unlike placing the houses (all done with via mouse) I can now work with my tablet which is way better for my wrist (damaged by RSI). So I hope to get some substantial progress soon.

    Thanks for the rep!
    Sadly I don't really have a quick way to place all the houses, I just happened to have a hole week of nothing else to do. When I placed them I worked for 5-10 hours a day making rectangular selections and filling them. Quite boring but definetly worth it.

    Making a map of Undermountain ... sounds like something only a madman would try to do

    I really like the looks of the walls! Are they done with "Stroke the path"?? Anyone knows?

    To get the battlements on the top to follow the wall, yes. Make sure you set the angle jitter to direction when stroking a path.

    I am very impressed about the level of detail. What is the overall size of your city (pixel)?
