Very nice.

Could you shorten the castles by a few pixels? I realize that they're castle towers, but they almost look like industrial smokestacks. Shorten maybe by about 10% or so might be enough to correct that image.

ok, I'll be changing the castles to grey instead of gold - and I'll make them shorter (by cutting off the bottom section.)

I'll post either later today or tomorrow. I'm also adding a couple of street signs - attaching Helmsley back onto the road and trying to clean up the path routes a little.

Any more suggestions or advice?

this looks amazing, though Calais is missing a circle for the troopnumbers

Here are some samples of other road ideas if you do not fully like my current roads - which ones do you like? If any - also willing to take suggestions if you have any?

Really I think it looks a bit odd. Personally I prefer the pressed grass.
The dirt looks good too, but I'm wondering how visible it would be :|

In my humble opinion I would say I like the dirt trail the best...but waauw brings up a good point on if it will be seen better.

Victory conditions text needs to have a space between "spend one"

Also maybe this "All ships in same or adjacent waters to each other are connected" should be reworded to "All ships in the same or adjacent water are connected to each other"

personally I'd prefer a different colour of wood, I don't like this yellowish one. Maybe pick something in between the darker one you had before and this one?
