Hey, looks pretty nice. Couple of quick comments:

The centre hatchings on that road are backwards - the hatchings always face in the direction away from traffic, if that makes sense. I believe it's so drivers don't mistake them for road markings indicating a direction you should go in, though if you make that mistake you should really have your license taken away.

Grass areas often look a bit odd and unnatural when they have completely hard borders - it's sometimes a good idea to break up the grass areas by lowering shrubbery objects a long way into the ground so they just about protrude upwards. Just be careful not to make the spacing too regular, or it'll look odd and repetitive, which is unusual to see in nature. It works particularly well along the bottom of fences - it's always worth thinking about how things work in real life while building realistic scenery, and it's harder to trim shrubbery up against vertical edges like fences, in addition to the vertical surface encouraging their growth. I used it a lot in Farthington and the bits I worked on in BotW.

UPDATE 27/01/20
So the rework around the old aldi is mostly complete its taken a lot of motivation and patience but at last im happy with the rework and adds a couple more stops and minutes to the drive time so far. Also i have started work on continuing the map towards Newton Marsh however it is bare skeleton work at the moment so screenshots will be shown when sufficient progress is made. Also please do suggest anything i could added in the new parts of the map for ideas mainly countryside ideas. }
Anyway screenshot timmmme!!

This junction sits where the old aldi used to be, and the shops behind are now called Mersea road shops and the road the bus is turning on is called Mersea Road.

Mersea road it self with speed humps and parking on the right hand side, it is tricky when cars are parked near the opposite bus stop!

Lloyd Avenue The apartments are going to be replaced at some point in the future hopefully.


Colchester Road
