TL;DR: This is for planning, I don’t expect every Member to have a read of this. But you can do so if you wish - it’s where I’ll direct you if you ask awkward questions.
This is where we’re building right now and is being done to work in the style, iron out kinks, etc etc. Obviously not all of Osgiliath will be built in this exact
style, but it is a good place to work out general motifs.
Note: By “area” I am talking in general terms, when I use “district” I’m talking quite specifically about an area of the city which is defined in a certain way - I’ll be using this terminology as we go on. Districts are simply subdivided into streets, but we don’t really have either yet!
Key: Unbuilt | Structure in Progress | Interior Required | Approved
The main street of this area goes east-west across the screen, curving slightly. It’s a Middle-Class Merchant Craft street, meaning it comprises comparatively grand buildings, with generally high-skill/low manual labour shops (apothecaries, higher-end cobblers/cordwainers/tailors, chandlers, and general merchant commerce shops. This sort of street would not include stuff like butchers, bakers, etc. Obviously there would be Middle-Class butchers and bakers, just not on this specific street. Butchery especially was a grim profession and you wouldn’t want such an occupation here. Here we would also find Guildhalls for Merchants and higher-end Crafts. Above all these shops would live the people who run them.
The street one below this main street (going east-west above the bottom of the screen) is a Middle-Class Lower-End Housing street. The houses here will be much smaller, but they are still Middle-Class by virtue of their setting - right next to a Merchant street as well as a palatial building. @the_pharaohs_cat will have to help work out an alteration to the style to fit with these smaller houses.
That effectively covers everything I’ve noted on this screen. I will work with the Project Leadership on some more definitions and properly plan out all the districts & their streets once we have fully completed the Example Area, but other street designations will include (but are not limited to:)
Merchant Craft (customer-facing)
Workshop Craft (need a workshop)
Market & Grocery
And similar for lower-classes. Upper class areas would just include housing. I will make a full list of professions at a later date.
