hi Ghost, thanks for your note - had to look up a few words ;)
So, today I learned that there is a structure called Breakwater ... it was just a name I made up :)
and I've learned that oblique means an angle not 90 percent (did know the word in its font use though)
Concerning my Breakwater ... it is at the ocean, but I haven't gotten around to map the harbour/docks/breakwaters yet, still busy with the land structures :) - I'm planning to make some docks for fishing boats in the river close to the sea as the original harbour, then as the city grew they added a new harbour on the ocean side. When I get that far, feel free to correct me in my attempts to map those elements ;)
I've just come across this map....go tilt! If you want some building shapes with variation I attach a bunch made using context free and Alfar's building script. Context free is a free download just use Alfar's script to generate more or play with the script to get different looking buildings. The buildings are all in vector (.svg).
thanks ravi - right now everything is just square, with a few "angeled" buildings - but as I get them all placed I'll exchange some of them with more interesting shapes :)
So I made a small test of "roofing" the city, here is what I got...
I can relate to that..The capital city of my Kingdom Of Shendenflar was a HUGE hand drawn map with about 1000 buildings. I would love to convert it into digital format someday..your city looks great!!
