Hey guys, here are some screenshots from a map I've been working on. I'm still debating with myself if I should rework the scale as it seems to me that the buildings are way too small.

Lord's fortified manor house




Licea's market and Prancin' Goblin Inn



Licea's watchtower and town entrance


Watchtower ward


Market ward


Swamp and witch hut [WIP]


Satellite hamlet #1


Satellite hamlet #2


I'd appreciate feedback!

I'd say you have the right mind of a pure medeival server. You have a very classy overall look.

Constructive critisizm:
  • Take your time adding borders(Auto-bordering looks pretty awful)
  • You need to add a bit more details to your nature(some colors would be nice)
  • Also think more out of the box, don't just add square shapes
  • Study your favorite mappers around here and see how they put down their details.
Misc stuff:
  • I once learnt that you don't put swamp right next to water-borders
  • Watch how you place the diagonal roof, it's not perfected, yet.
  • Be careful to add the same id twice in the same X or Y-axis, it can work on some places but not in general.

Thank you so much!

I have to add I do very little auto-bordering and haven't added much detail because I'm still trying to define the scale of the world and the feel. As to architecture, I'm using mostly boxes as early architecture developed that way, in-game if you look at the first watch tower its squary but if players sift through the lore they'll find out it's one of the first watchtowers built (the other one being in satellite hamlet #1, which is ruined due to poor maintenance) and has been recently renovated; much newer ones are circular and are a bit more interesting IMO.

To you last point I'm not sure I fully understand what you mean, could you point it out please?
