We already have a Sydney metro map so I don't think another Sydney map is what I want to see the most. It's unique in location though because it portraits more of Sydney then the other Sydney map so I'm not saying it shouldn't be allowed to be done, just voicing my opinion that maybe another map like this isn't very interesting when there are so many other beautiful cities that haven't got a map yet. A Paris map would be much more interesting I think!!

Gillipig, thanks for your comments. :)
I could say exactly the same thing about all the USA maps and all the Europe maps etc etc.
While this one has similar road style graphics to S Metro, the game is casual, easy and classic, and that's what i would like to portray for Classic City: Sydney, hence why i used this map.
Metro was never meant to be a Classic Sydney map and I have no intention of renaming Metro such.
Yes a Paris map would be probably as interesting depending on the slant, but perhaps other will do that one. :)

Just a heads up, I'm gonna sticky your maps for now. In my opinion they're looking good and I hope you continue to work on them. But the people in the Main Foundry are a little burdened at the moment.
