The pallet you use comes down to personal preference really, theres always going to be a better options but largley just use what ever colour schemes you feel looks good.

As for astetic building design its a big game of hit or miss, just play around with roofs untilt it looks good and after a while you will start to get a feel for different types of roofing astetics for different buildings.

Another tip that helped me in the early days was to download a bunch of free maps from the mapping section and just going through and see how alot of people do other work, sometimes its easier to learn from others then figuring it out yourself.

My last peice of advice is to go and watch the mapping compeition threads and see what they do, some of the best mappers in the community take part in those competitions so you can see what the best are doing and get a feel from that.
