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?

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?

Not sure if it's been mentioned, but Newcastle should be way up north, by Berwick, not down south. :)
Also I love that Whitby is on there, cool town!

Coventry should be a crossroad rather than a dead end, no? I'm not an expert, but I seem to remember that historically Coventry was known as the intersection of many trade routes.

I had to make some liberties to make the areas clear and fit appropriately. To me the game play is more important then the accuracy of the geographical locations - Over-all this is a game not a history class. Sorry for those who wish that the locations where more accurate, but I'm sure if you give it a chance you will enjoy the game play...

I like it, though I'd prefer a different background for your title, the orangy background with the purple letters don't fit imo.

suggestions - opinions?

hmm, still looks a bit odd
but that's mostly the flowers you drew around it maybe.
Perhaps you can make a normal but pretty title, lying on a large rose or some big roseleaves or something.

The problem is mostly that little roses growing of your title is a good idea, but not so much on this scale in my opinion. So either you make the title and the roses on it bigger or you just take out the roses overgrowing it and integrate roses differently.

Ok, I dumped the little roses - changed color of font from blue to black, added a couple of large roses and cleaned up the font a bit..
