I like this, it puts a little twist on city maps. It'll be fun to watch it go through the foundry.

Surely there must be a better name than, "The pedestrian area" for a territory?

Is it actually called that though? Because if not it just sounds like you got lazy in your territory names...

According to your link, the main street is called Stroget. Sounds like a much better name, IMO.

Flapcake, said it before, but it is worth saying again. I like this map. But right now I have only one question - why does the top legend have that really thick black line under it when you have this nice thin line splitting it up.

Also, where did you get your icons from?

emm yes the legend line is worth looking at.

The metro icon have made my self, the ferry and train, dont remember (had them in my computer for ages) the airplane from photoshop, the sights are pictures that i have remodeled, painted, sliced, shaped and resized.

And no, people do not know what strøget is, but "the pedestrian area" at all know what is.

You could rename this one of two ways.

"No cars allowed" - fits in with the fun theme of the map.
"Pedestrianised area" - a better use of English.

Any of the three is good, but pedestrian is not the right word. You would need to change it to "the pedestrianised area".

i can't see the images. when i go to dropbox to see them it says: "Error (403) It seems you don't belong here! You should probably try logging in?"

try imageshack or photobucket as they're the best and most reliable image hosting sites.
