I'm surprised this hasn't been made already. It might be because piecing screenshots together necessitate some work, but I think it's worth it.
Basically, this is the thread where you post screenshots of the cities and settlements that make you proud! And the stories that go with them if you so desire.
I'll open the ball with my own:
- Coinhammerer City, 1313 inhabitants, 100 soldiers ( 40 militia, 60 skirmishers). A prosperous coastal settlement, Coinhammerer City enjoys a long period of peace and prosperity after the 100-strong warband cleaned up all the maskling camps within twenty chunks of its walls. Before that expedition, the masklings attacked relentlessly from three directions. The twice-reinforced wall sections are monuments to that troubled period. Unfortunately, the city doesn't have access to copper, and thus remains relatively low tech. I could have made a mining outpost, but the game was already running at 800ms per tick so I more or less abandoned the world. I wanted to put statues everywhere but no copper... Stone statues when?
- Scalechopper Harbor, 672 inhabitants, 110 soldiers (10 scouting militias, 2x 20 spearmen/30 archers battalions). Nestled in a nicely isolated peninsula, Scalechopper Harbor is much more ressource-rich than Coinhammerer City, with access to vast forests and rich copper veins. The latter allow it to field a very strong military, which utterly stomped every maskling camp that could remotely threaten the settlement. I consider this settlement pretty much done, although the asymmetrical farm placement annoys me slightly. Very satisfied with how it looks otherwise.
And one from a friend:
- Wallchopper Camp. Since I didn't make that one I don't know much about it, except that my friend didn't quite understand mines yet. I find the different building methods to be interesting nonetheless.
And now it's your turn! Let's see some great cities in this thread!
