    I'm currently using a very similar method to the one you've used here - solid colour with a bevel - but I'm doing it in negative. I'm putting whole blocks of colour down and dividing them vaguely into houses/terraces using bright pink lines and a Colour Key. I don't think any of the spiderweb mess I'm making will appear in the final map. I just need to get a better feel for the arrangement and scale of my own city, which I think is only going to be about 1/2 t0 2/3 the size of yours. Its too much of a mess to show it right now, but I have standard house symbols dotted around the place looking ridiculously idiosyncratic with the bevelled houses, but I need them there to keep the scale sensible.

    Hats off to you for the magnificent job you are doing on this :D

    Hi guys

    I'll try to show you another update of the city sometimes this or next week.
    For now I can show you the shield with the banner of Vyrn. It's done completely in CC3+ with the heraldry annual and some effects.
    It will be copied over to the map once I get to do the finishing touches.

    Awesome! I just bought this annual and installed it, looking forward to making some heraldry. This looks great Hadrian!

    WOWZA! When I need a large city mapped I know who I'm going to hire to do it (I just hate doing cities! LOL!). This is mind-blowing! Fantastic! Amazing job!

    @Pixel: Thank you.:)

    @ScottA: Thank you. I am honored:) However, I would generally advise against having large cities mapped by someone else, because it takes a hell lot of time and is therefore quite expensive.

    As promised, here's my update.
    I generated a ~3k jpeg file of the city, that should give a nice impression of what still needs to be done. There are just so much holes in between the houses that need to be filled.
    Also, I deleted the fields that could be seen in previous versions. I decided to do so, because they were out of proportion. I will redo them as soon as possible. As you can see, the outer city has been expanded a bit and it still needs a lot of work.

    Anyway, I hope you guys like the map.

    I think I need to rethink Sanctuary after seeing this. It would currently fit in about a tenth of that size :P

    Very inspiring Hadrian!

    *is humbled*

    Absolutely amazing. There's a lot to like in this map, but the one thing that really sticks out for me is that we see the supports for the aquaduct via the shadow (and get a sense of it's height). That's really cool. But even cooler is how you drew the shadow across the city wall and down the slope of the land. Nice touch, that.

    I eagerly look forward to the finished deal.

    Cheers,
