Make a way to control town stones and the following expansions
Okay, Picture this: You have just gotten that town stone you have been waiting for. You got your plot already in anticipation for this moment! You put the stone in the center, which you PAINSTAKINGLY measured, only to find the actual Stone area puts the stone in a random corner and your town is WAY off center. So you try to right this wrong by buying an expansion. You buy it and what happens? IT GOES IN THE COMPLETE OPPOSITE DIRECTION THAT YOU WANTED IT. Essentially, I am just trying to save you from future head-aches and possible trolling. Please make a way to control the starter area when you place a stone, and then make a way to control how the next expansion will fit. My suggestion? Make a Build mode in the model of like Zoo Tycoon or some other landscaping game. In conjunction with the mega-map (A more local version in order to forgo the weeks worth of screenshots) you could decide EXACTLY what the area around the initial Stone Placement and any further expansions. I do realize this would be alot of hard work and there isn't really much outcry for this. However, there will come a day when things start getting too crowded, and people WILL argue about a misplaced expansion or who has what territory. And let's not forget about the players who have a very SPECIFIC idea of what they want their town to be. Random acting expansions and town stones only make it more frustrating for the players and that leads to bad votes which then leads to an unhappy Sim. Get my point? :P

PS: Make the townstone movable within the town after it's been placed.
