Here is a generic, highly populated crappy town I just made to really just test to see my ability to make something decent... what do you think?

it *seems* nice, but i think the village plan is too ... "organised" to pass for a "highly populated crappy town". when i hear "highly populated crappy town" i think "no architect/plans when it was built", i.e. maybe it started much smaller and the like. so, the roads should look more chaotic rather than form a pattern/shape like they do now, this looks too modern/organised .

as far as your drawing/etc goes, it looks so good i cannot tell anything wrong with it.

Where did you get the program to make this? I need a good map maker because my MSpaint skills are severely lacking.

I did it myself, with photoshop. And it was just a test to see if I could produce something that not only I liked, style wise, but others did to,in about an hour of my time.

Though, I suppose I could automate it, course, then you would have to have photoshop near the version I have (cs5).

My test continent

Test w/ symbols

Mile scale would be 1000 miles for each square of the lat/long lines.

EDIT: Oh yeah, you'll want to click on them to open them up as a much larger image, but be warned, they are rather large.
