When I compare donjon and scout's tower - the proportion does not look good to me.

That's the "balancing problem" with scale to which I alluded. Some concessions have to be made here and there or the smaller buildings would be indistinguishable on the map if we presented everything at the same scale. The workers certainly could not fit through those little doors, for example. Compare the donjon to the headquarters and you have a similar discrepancy.

I welcome any advice to improve the visual experience. However, please bear in mind the focus of the game is the strategic playing of it. The graphics are just "eye-candy" intended to support the playing experience. face-smile.png

Perhaps I should consider reducing the size of the donjon?

The one about proportion, you already answered that. I understand limitation -- scouts house is small building...

I'll see how tall I can make it within the the trimming limits of the rendering stage.

And what about change the house to something like this

it would save the space in x axis, but be more work... face-smile.png
