2x2 for shop
4x4 Vacation home
10x10 permanent home/workshop


I’ll back Bob here. I prefer 10 x 10 for my home base minimum. Its easier to get creative in a larger area.


if I was building/ planning a city or a village, I’d go for variety of sizes and shapes for available plots, or just have a vaguely defined ‘district’ areas that would be carved into pieces and built upon as necessary so ppl can build whatever feels right at the moment


I don’t see enough of this in building games and I feel like the size of the plots exacerbates the tendency to divide everything into squares. Give the roads some curvy character, make the available plots look like Tetris pieces. Don’t avoid squares entirely, just try to make it a little random with size and shape.

I started plotting in a giant circle so I can confirm it’s difficult in terms of compactness but not to make it conform to a grid. You would just have odd shapes here and there.
