    This map is shaping up nicely. The palisade looks particularly striking.

    Whatever you did to the ground, =D
    Adding the second gate house was a good idea, too; it really pops the hill. Very nice!

    I liked the ISO grid you had in a prior version, but with a caveat that you shouldn't have it visible on the sides of the hill, as it throws the eye off perspective and makes it look flat, rather than on a hill (or it did for me). If you have the grid visible on the hilltop and grasslands, but not on the hillside, I think it will make it look even more three dimensional.

    Huh. An interesting idea. I will play with that and see how it works.

    I tried making new houses that are drawn in actual iso perspective, rather than just looking kinda sorta like they COULD BE. I don't think they all look quite right. The white ones at least need thicker lines in the corners, but might not fit with the others at all. I was trying for a little variety, but I'm not sold that it looks good that way. What do you think?
