    @IguanaGuy Looks like a gypsy camp. LOL! I love it. Thanks for making me laugh. xD
    @Maj Settlements should be similar to characters. They don't need to be boring areas with a few buildings strewn about the place. They can, and should, have a history and a personality of their own. Try to design your settlements with both their history and purpose in mind.

    My problem with towns is I always map them too big. When I playtest-wander them, I try to picture the downs in games that I like and then I start to realize how big it is, how much time it takes to get around... and then I squish it. It ends up feeling super cramped in the editor but plays much better.

    I started forcing all my towns to be 45 x 45 tiles unless it is a capital or a major town, then I expand if it is logical. For example Aurora is a resort town and it ended up being 45 x 90 tiles in the end (done as 2 maps). And the Dwarfen Capital is 3 45 x 45 tile maps (would be 4, but the 4th is all mountains).

So trying our Ultra Mode 7 was a bad idea. How do I not include this in my game? XD
Stumbled upon an RPG Maker game on Steam called 'Boobs vs Zombies' while looking for a zombie themed fantasy RTS. lol
There's a new born faction in my country called "Sunda Empire" claiming they have right to rule over the earth and sun... I don't know what to feel...

Quon blessed your good efforts
I have tried, several times to understand how Markiplier is popular. You can't deny his popularity. I can only get through a few minutes of his vids, though. He's cringier than ANY cringe comp I've ever watched. When I was a kid, if you acted like that, 0 friends and 100% no dates for you. Times have changed XD
