October Community Challenge - City Streets
Time for another little challenge here in the forum. This time, the challenge is city streets.
The short basics of it; you have the month of October to make a nice street map. As in a single short street segment, not a large section of the city.
I've marked out 20 street locations in the map below. To participate, just post in this thread stating which one you want. First come, first serve, if the one you want is already taken, you have to pick another. I recommend refreshing the page immediately after posting your claim just to make sure someone didn't manage to post the same claim just before you. Should that happen, edit your post to change your claim. I marked 20 locations for now, but should more people want to join in, I'll easily add more locations, so 20 isn't a limit.
As always, even if the challenge is set in the community atlas world, you don't have to submit your map to the atlas unless you want to, the competition is for everyone, contributing to the atlas or not. Likewise, this challenge is for every skill level. If more than 3 entries, we'll have a public vote for best map in the end, but the main point here isn't to be the best, but to challenge yourself. So, please participate even if you don't believe you don't stand a chance to win. Practice makes perfect, and competing in challenges is great practice.
You are free to choose whatever style you want for your map, the only requirement is that you make a street map matching one of the listed locations. If you do intend to contribute your final map to the atlas, you obviously have to adhere to the atlas guidelines.
I picked Dunor for this challenge because the city map doesn't give much detail about the buildings. This gives you great flexibility when making the street map, you are pretty free to make it the way you want. Give the city map a good look before starting to decide what buildings should be in that street location, and get to mapping. The street should obviously roughly match what you see in the city map (number of buildings, shape, placement), but it is expected that the less detailed city map won't be perfect, so do adapt, tweak and make it look nice, don't treat the city map as a straitjacket.
Please do take your time, and you are encouraged to make a WIP thread in the forum for your map. WIP threads are great inspiration for others, and a great way to get some comments.
You can grab the .fcw of the city from the atlas page.
Check out this map for an example.
The challenge will run for the entire month of October. Post your finished map in this thread when you are done.
(I'll update this list as I have the time, but please don't assume it is free just because I haven't gotten to update the list, check below if there are anyone claiming it, I am not watching this thread 24/7)
