    Looks pretty good! I very much like your trees (they look great individually or in clumps) and your rough hill terrain is cool.

    I'm guessing you used RPG Citymap Generator? It gave you a nice distribution of buildings but the roads could use a bit of tinkering I think - there are a few in the main town cluster that are going nowhere. Also, the widest roads look pretty out of scale with the buildings, maybe thin them up some? Some judicious editing of your road network would greatly improve the look of this one I think. Final, also an artifact of RPGCMG is the blobby shape of the pond? Just a little bit of hand painting would make that more natural looking I think.

    Great map. Have some rep for it!

    Yeah, I was worried about the roads also. Definitely near the center the road's go nowhere and make no sense.

    I'd say that's a big improvement!

    Very fun city. I like that it looks like it's inside a valley.

    Just as a military thought... I wouldn't build my castle at the bottom of a cliff, I'd much prefer to be building it higher up. So next to the lake and well up a hill would be a better place for a castle.
