    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!!

    thanks jtougas - haven't counted my buildings but I know I'm about halfway there, and then I'll have to add some fortifications and the harbour and all the little stuff. Long way to go
