I looked into the rivers/drainage systems, and there is one that could be used but it would be a new impassable and also a very long one. So will not add it. I know houses are not the bog standard map impassables but so what.
Houses doesn't make sense any sense as impassables. Mountains are impassables because they are hard to pass with armies, so are rivers and forests. Houses are never lined up so orderly that they form an impassable line several hundred miles long! There are forests that can't be passed by armies, there are rivers that can't be passed by armies, there are certainly mountains that can't be passed by armies. This is not really a minor reality check error, it's a major one! You might just as well line up pencils for several hundred miles. Houses can't be impassables on large scale maps! Sorry for ranting about this but I feel like you need to hear it!
When has BA been several hundred miles long?
Try walking through a house and see what the police say?
houses are very good impassables for a city map. Roads would also make good impassables (London and many more). So would rivers (in Jakarta and other maps). House tend to be lined up orderly, they are called roads, most of them tend to be straight. As for forests not being able to be passed by armies, the French thought that in WW1 and 2. Mountains have always been able to go through, have you not heard of paths or passageways.
All I am say gillipig, is why cannot houses be used? and why should I make maps that are so bog standard they are two a penny on the site.
