Sorry it took so long for me to respond, I've been busy and not on CC as much lately. But I will comment some more when you make another update. Keep up the good work!

Seamus76 wrote:- I also still think the tert borders are a little too chaotic and all over the place. It's a good use of paths, but I'm not sure you need them to be so curvy. Especially within the alamo I would rather it be more square-ish, or "room-ish"

It has not been discussed. In the John Wayne movie the Alamo the soldiers would get drunk and get into fights in the saloon. So I figured if you had
armies in the saloon they would be getting drunk and fighting amongst themselves. If others feel that this should not be though I don't feel that strongly about it to not change it.

DoomYoshi wrote:EDIT: On second thought, the bombardments don't make any sense at all. If the cannons can bombard into a building, there will be structural damage to the walls, and the walls should not serve as barriers to attack.
DoomYoshi wrote:Finally, why is there a moat on this map? Ok, I researched this one: there was a ditch that was 2 men wide, called a moat, but it wasn't necessarily filled with water (at least I can't find any evidence).

It might even be worth it to make the cannons able to bomb more than just 1 terit. It would make them more valuable, which they truly were in the battle. It might be too much for the gameplay, I'm not sure on that. But it would be cool. Perhaps 2 or 3 different terits that each cannon can bombard. Just a thought.
One additional thought on the Saloon issue...if you're looking to change the name of it, you could make it the hospital, and make it a +1 like the Chapel and the Convent Yard. As you can see in the second picture I posted, the hospital is sort of in between those 2, so it could work to fill that area.
