    I have decided to do a district of Torstan, using Annual Deluxe Battlemap, as in Annual 131 (Village Battlemaps). Here is not much more than the copy and paste from the Torstan map. Any helpful advice very welcome.

    Only two suggestions (for now) OK, three 1) Widen overlay on the street on the left, hard to read what the road name is. 2) Change Medical Dr to something like "Chirurgeon." Medical Dr just clashes 3) if the walled enclaves are villas, add some greenery around them and add some gates.

    Thanks Jerry - I was going to do No 2 and 3 anyway - the names are so I don't forget; but I hadn't considered No 1, so consider it fixed.

    I needed a break from doing city maps, overland maps and even dungeon and building maps ......... so here is the updated version of a city district map. :)

    The map looks great, Quenten :)

    I only have one suggestion. How about making the map a lot larger, and putting all the legend stuff at the bottom with a little less space around each column?

    To be honest, I am not fond of putting a complete legend like this on the map. A legend is nice for identifying important places, but when you label everything, useful information just drowns. I recommend putting the legend in a map note instead, and only show the special locations in the on-map legend. This helps keep the map itself in focus.

    Here is the updated Holy Head district, with and without Index (which can be toggled on and off). Just Inns and important buildings marked on non-indexed map. There will be a full description of the district in the map Notes. Comments please. As you can see, I really do take notice of your critiques - thanks Monsen and Sue

    That was quick. Ready for submission in a day or two (mainly for adding chimneys and Map Notes).
