@DeBaby28 I think that there is still a lot more you could do with your cliffs. At the moment, each cliff goes straight up to the next main level with 100% regularity. It would look much better, imo, if you broke those straight lines with bits of cliff which were of differing heights. Here is an old map of mine where I still have the screenshot on my hard disk. If you look at, e.g., the southwest corner you can see what I mean.
It also has 3 sets of steps on it. pluevnr is right to say that your stairs look like ladders. However, I think that just putting an extra tile in so that the bottom sticks out looks silly. Steps in cliffs should look, as far as possible, as if they have been carved out of the cliff face. If they are sticking out at the bottom, that wrecks that illusion. Instead, I take my cliff edge back in a tile at the top. That allows me to get the extra tile in.
Those cliffs look really cool. It'll be a while before I make it to that level, but I'll definitely keep practicing. Plus I'm not really should how to begin this. Would I start it off like a plateau, then begin digging around and leveling it?
