    Is there going to be an update on the overworld city models? Currently, Brit Alleys is a shack. Would be cool to get some Civ 6 looking cities going on with some real detail not just a 6 polygon model!

    Definitely would make sense to make cities/towns look more like a dense cluster of buildings, rather than one or even several spaced out imo.

    Then they could build space within the cluster wherever they want players to be able to "pass through" a town, plus wraparound pathing on the overland would help to navigate those spaces.

    For a long time I've been hoping for the same and brought it up in the last batch of questions, but it was not answered in the PostMortem or DS's answers to same missed questions (so maybe someone covered the topic recently?). The flagship city and its boroughs could look a bit nicer or delineated in released product, but I can only assume extra resources are likely pretty spare with everything else big going on (heraldry, scene building, etc).

    Naybe there is a surprise overworld update coming? A strong city graphic for the overworld sounds like the kind of priority that (I'm hoping too) the team can easily handle. We got an icey hot tub, afterall.

    I like how Ardoris is shown on the overworld, with the two castles and the option of entrances.
    Kingsport is good as well - shows it spread out.
    The Brittany cluster looks so much smaller - though it has far more to it.

    It's just all spread out. Urban sprawl, you know, like Plano.

    The one that gets me is Aerie, because I easily see the keep, but I don't notice the smaller buildings beside it except for the quest sparklies that show up over them.

    Every time I run past Brittany, I stub my toe on Brittany Fields. It looks so sad just sitting there like a speed bump in the road! :)
