you know the alps kinda suck too sometimes and a lot of armies did complain that Britain is an island or venice was on water but still: that didnt change just because someone complained in a forum about it… ;)
i hope you get that its no offence, its just to get a point across: switzerland, britain and venice flourished because of those features
its a taste thing really, for me those maps add character and make it more immersive.
maybe they could make a slider, maybe call it “the bland slider” for that even spacing
what i actually kinda agree on and that would be hard to achieve (its in the infinetly hard category, they use supercomputers and thousands of scientists for that kind of stuff) but at the same time very awesome:
make the map generate with geological sense and
make the towns placement make even more economical,historical,sociological sense.
the game already does that a bit with the rawmaterial buildings, wich is incredible btw…
