     35* Maps should be round, not square. 
     36 * Square maps in atlas are deprecated. 
     37 * Round maps avoid sharp corners, hence more esthetical. 
     38 * The minimap is round, so square maps don't fit. 
     39 * On circular maps, all locations are equally reachable from the center of the map, while Civic Centers in corners of square maps are hard to reach (not considering terrain).

    3541* Place terrain over an area rather than a tile. Most times placing tiles only looks unnatural. In addition remember terrain from the same biome fits better to each other than tiles from different biomes.
