The City of Urvosov by Kaloith The City of Urvosov by Kaloith
So I decided to give city mapping a spin, I'm pretty satisfied.

This is really cool. City maps are something I've always wanted to try.

Thanks! They're pretty fun to do if you just want to mindlessly work on something while listening to a podcast or something.

Are they much harder than like land maps? I'm still learning. I learned a lot through tuts, but haven't come across any for town/city maps.

They're not necessarily harder, it's just they take a lot more time because often you have to place or draw each house and section of the map. Often it's like drawing a small land map and then adding the structures on top.

Do you know of any good tuts that could help someone starting out?

The problem I have with a lot of tutorials is that they often have you do it a specific way, which means the end product will look very similar to any one else's who has used the tutorial. However this is a pretty decent guide on how to draw cities www.fantasticmaps.com/2013/03/…
If you have photoshop a quicker way to make cities is to draw the main buildings, and then draw a set of buildings so you can duplicate them and litter them all over the place rather than drawing or making each individual house.

Favorited that link and screenshotted your message to put in my map advice/tut forum. And yeah, I mainly use tutorials as guides. Once I know what I'm doing then I make changes to adapt it to better suit what I'm seeking or what makes it different than the tut's outcome. :) That is really good advice about the buildings though. I'll have to give that a try when I get my hands on a working computer again!

Nice! I see you used the same textures i used for a few maps of mine. Do you by any chance remember where you found them? I'd like to credit the guy who made them, but i can't find his link anywhere. Thanks!

I used the map texture pack by coyotemax. Pretty useful, I've seen a lot of people use it. Other than that I commonly just google random textures I need.

This is amazing. I might reference back to this when making my city for a campaign I'm running. Well if it's okay with you. The shape of the city fits with what I had in mind.

Sweet. I can write a good campaign but I can't for the life of me do a decent map. This will help me greatly.
