    @ciberninja, map was updated, let me know what you think

    @ciberninja, that's pretty much what I'm doing right now. Brillevast is close to completion, you can see it the post Target quality on my patreon. However I don't wish to close the area around as the main reason for the map existence is to incent players to travel around in their car in 1:1 scale environment. So more likely, I will dot the map with islands of finished areas and eventually it will make a dense network of points of interest. thank you for feedback cheers

    Map of Normandy, France

    I have decided to move updates news and development diary towards Patreon to give incentive to support my work, I guess it won't be of the taste of some of the community members but I need to find ways to make this project more sustainable. The map remains entirely free (obviously) and you can consult change notes in the steam workshop dedicated area. As a result, if you are looking to consult development advancements, video tutorials on map making or ask me questions/give input on the map, please go on the following Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/cherbourgzomboid If you support the project for more than 5$ you will also be able to have a customized house, mansion, apartment, lighthouse, castle or even a dedicated Island!

    Making a Map, ideas/suggestions needed

    According to my calculations (and photoshop calculator), the areas of roads represents 6,3 million pixels (from the 150 millions of the map), road sizes range from 4 to 10 with an average that I would estimate around 7, that means there is around 900 000 meters of roads, or 900km of drivable roads, to which you can add around 1200 km of walkable connected paths. I suspect the road number will go significantly higher with the mapping of East Cherbourg. There is a bit more than 4000 fields of 14 different kinds, representing an area of 40 million pixels so 40km2. the total map is around the size of Lichtenstein but without taking in account the 60km2 of bodies of water of the Cherbourg map. Obviously it's gonna take some time to populate but it's faster than I thought using some tricks. This shows the mapping of residences which act as a buffer between orthogonal dense towns and curvy roads in the countryside. I can then discriminate a certain number of houses (large mansions, small urban, rural shed, etc) to add variety and populate fences around each cell. I found a small trick to color differently horizontal lines and vertical lines longer than 1 pixel which enables me to respect fence orientation. After that comes the painstakingly long task of manually adding all buildings... Not much I can do there I think

    . To give a sense of advancement in my work, in white is all the areas I have manually modified, both terrain and vegetation. What is left is what remains of the google map to PZ map process i had used originally. (by the way check this tool: http://www.chengfolio.com/google_map_customizer#satellitemap ) The top right island should appear entirely white but its data are on a different psd and i got lazy. So the east part of Cherbourg is still very much undone, the village de quincampoix in the south too, and the industrial part the eastern side of the harbour and the south east of the city. Obviously that's only the terrain, the buildings are far from completion

    military outside wall with checkpoint it will close entirely the south and west borders of the military port, with only 2 access points.

    sharing some screenshots from the map, project is still ongoing but vacations are vacations. I have not yet done the PAtreon as I would like the map to be playable and enjoyable before that but I'm still a few months from this point I think, so I'm stuck in between "I can't really spend so much time on it as I have other priorities and life must go on" and "I really like this map and it would clearly be an incentive to make some money out of it". ALso, I'm getting (much needed) support from https://theindiestone.com/forums/index.php?/profile/28870-хибитиhibiti-blr/ , who is focusing on road signs Thanks to him it will help a lot driving in the maze of a road network that this region is

    what do you mean? In any case, for now the white is snow so I will have to change that eventually... i'm sure plots share fences, probably the same for residential areas, but it made more sense for me to make it like that.
