    Not much progress I am afraid.
    Real life is interfering with hobby time.
    And besides, two other maps, world of warcraft and a new idea for yet another map also keep me busy.

    Always fascinating to watch city maps take shape. This is no exception. I particularly like what's developing in the NE section within the walls.

    Great work, really nice style. What did you use to make the hedges in the northwest (asking because I want to make a city in BW style too soon)

    Thank guys.

    @Moskva. The hedges are just rows of the smallest tree symbol.

    Very nice map, also nice idea with the hedges, even though on the zoomed out map I thought it was stone walls.

    Did you use a macro for that? I've tried to get symbols in a line using a macro but I can't get it to work.

    One of the annuals contains stuff about macros and one of those macros does exactly what you just asked. Even if he did not do it that way, there is one to do it.

    Thanks for posting these as you go. As I mentioned before, I love seeing how city maps develop. This looks great!

    This looks awesome. The only thing I would quibble with are the neat and tidy rectangular fields in the SW. At this scale I guess you could argue that even if there were more irregularities to it on the ground, it would appear this way from above...but, I really like what you did in the NW and wondering why you didn't continue that tradition in the south

    In fact, I like the diversity in the fields, and the contrast between what feels like very old orchards in the north, maybe even pre-dating the city, with an artisan look&feel, and the big crops in the south, more modern, more organized, almost an industry. The north feels like a place to live for self sufficient farmers, the south like a place to work for people of the city.

    Finished!

    All in all I am pretty happy with it.
    Of course a next time I will do things different.

    Nice moat ;) This is a great map, it in fact inspired me to make my b&w city map

    @Moskva, I think my moat could have been done better. Maybe next time.

    But thanks for the inspiration. Withouh you I think I would have done no moat :-)

    @Henrie61

    Its not easy to put in a moat once you've already done the city. Mine wasn't perfect either but redrawing all water again is such a hassle.

    That turned out fantastic. My only quibble is I don't care for the colored border but I can't find anything else about it that I don't like. Well freakin' done!

    @nlp138, I really tried to do it all black and white but I can't.
    Need a bit of color :-)
