Awesome. Looks far more polished.

Are these map blocks that connect to other blocks randomly or are these hand crafted maps?

The method I'm using for this theme is to lay down a fixed street grid, and then have the building plots randomly filled. I plan to have at least a dozen different street grid layouts, each with randomly placed buildings within those layouts. So what you'll have is a lot of meaningful variation, but not entirely random maps. It should lead to more consistently interesting and fun maps, without causing repetitive maps.

The actual tiles used for streets can also be swapped, so that cars (not in the screenshot but on the way) and other obstacles will differ each time you load the map. In other words, the tactical obstacles and particulars will change each time the map is loaded.

Description

We're working to improve our village maps, adding more tactical cover and ensuring the tiles are placed in a more logical, compact layout. This should offer better gameplay by reducing the amount of times soldiers are caught out in the open with no cover.
