Still feels.... off. And I think I just got enlightened as to why!

If you look at it, it almost looks like the 4 roofs are slanting down towards the center. It makes the building look thinner at the center than at the corners, which makes it look very flat and weird.

I think we need to raise the roofs towards the middle somehow, or put an object there to make it look less flat

i think the roof is fine, this is an optical illusion, the problem is the "wall" because it is shorter on the center. here a a change
(also i used patroiids idea on the chimney)

The walls do look much better now!

Though now the chimney kinda reminds me of a pink: Image

Here is my idea for using the AoF town centres, with some of the changes suggested.

These include:

-Making the top roof section taller.
-Placing a flag on top of the structure.

The town center design is 32x40, so the flag may slightly cover the above square.

What do you think?

not as a replacement (i like the current - dont you?)
- however i like the modfications, so if we will do a town center upgrade ("level up" type upgrade) than it could be the base for an upgrade of the existing TC image, also i suggest posting it into such suggestion thread.

You mean an upgrade of the AoS town centre, or the AoF one?
