Some years ago I showed Bikerdude my hometown in de Netherlands, Deventer.
I found a video on youtube, where somebody walks around this city in our old city streets, after a winter storm.
Take a look at this video:
Some inspirational parts: from 0:00 - 4:21, 7:04 - 12:58, 13:10 - 23:58, 26:36 (hotel where bikerdude stayed at).

This is from 2018 but as far as I know not posted previously. Since there's some crossover in Thief/TDM and Dishonored playerbases, and since it's another exercise in recreating/expanding an immersive sim, I thought it might be of interest:

Youtube suggested me this channel a while ago. Really cool stuff the dude is doing. The annotations are in german, but he only writes what he currently does or what material he is using. For me watching him doing what he is doing and the final result is much more interesting, though.

Archaeologists have now uncovered a link to the capital’s lost ice trade with the rediscovery, under one of London’s most prestigious addresses, of an enormous 18th-century ice store, the existence of which had been almost entirely forgotten... Workers would then climb down into the void from a small corridor near the top, to chip off blocks when required...

“At one point there were probably a couple of thousand ice wells in London, but most of them were probably quite small. What this one does and why it is significant is it bridges the gap between [the time when] ice was only for the very wealthy, to a kind of mass availability of ice, which you get from the 1830s and 40s.”

800px-Chapel_of_St_Mary,_Jesmond_Dene,_N

People could extrapolate the original pilgrimage chapel from this ruin and make it part of some mission witha  Builder pilgrimage chapel (one that's still standing, not a ruin).

Oh, thats a nice one, @Zerg Rush. For creating a concept, on- and offline.
But i cant find any license information about the images/fonts, only that the project is MIT licensed.

I don't think that the licence is a problem, middleage images don't have copyright (Scary if somone reclaims it). Like the other map generator, license says "Use it for what you want" In the License the only condicion is to include the name of the autor of this soft in the credits page (Ancient Map created with the soft from.....) , if it is use in a mission. Similar to the CC license.

Copyright is valid for 70 years, if there is no one to renew it. For example, old films from before 1950 are in the public domain, with the exception of some of Chaplin, where the family still holds the rights, the same in some other films, images or others.

How about some music, instead of a location?
I found a music channel "beeldle the bardcore "on youtube,
where popular music  is remade with medieval  instruments.
(you can also do it yourself, using a midi file, a DAW and some VST's using medieval instrument samples)

For example some Rap tunes to "pimp up the pub":

Nice, but in music there is a copyright, not for the middleage partiture, but from the artist which interpret it., not all of them permit a free use.

There are sites where you can download royalty free music, but paying the licence.

There are some sites with CC or copyleft music, but no medieval. Not so easy with soundtracks for public uses.

      I just gave myself vertigo. A pleasant kind of vertigo, like the world has been lifted off my shoulders. I'll explain:
      Yesterday I saw to my dismay, that I had made my entire map two - two - units too short on every level - that every set01 piece was sticking 2 units into the ceiling. That's basically 402 brushes that needs to be realigned (minus the ground floor brushes).
      I knew enough about selections to do all of that in a very tense five minutes, and it compiled without leaks. (Thank you so much, Dark Radiant devs, for making an editor with such care for precision that you can align hundreds of brushes perfectly at once (which is not something I can say for Valve's Hammer editor, which has some serious issues on that front, which actually made me just quit it in disgust).) However, the result is that the entire level has now been stretched a barely noticable 2 units, and it will take some getting used to psychologically.

      My workflow is basically running from a chain of disasters, eventually trying to seek shelter in former disasters. It's not ideal - it's just my life.
      When I abandoned my first map, it was out of a typical mental breakdown, and so I returned to find a skybox void where the kitchen door should have been (due to a misplaced visportal) and two overlapping brushes Z-fighting on the kitchen floor.
      I've now cleaned up the last bit of mess, by cleanly separating every floor into its own layer. Now I can finally work on each floor in peace.
      ...not that I really needed to. Once you get skilled enough, the orthographic messes, well, I'll let this video speak for itself:

      Beams, beams, beams...
      Support beams, and cross beams, and then beams to fixate the support beams to the cross beams. The more beams you have in a map, the better. There's walls, floors and ceilings, but the rest of the map is pretty much just beams. Beams makes a thief happy.
