Well
There came something up with the Townhall not even being a Castle

Which I would sign immediatly
I wondered about this as well already



The Town Hall is the Main Building but does never Change from its simple Outfit
And especially when you have a Fully Grown Town full covered in Big Stone Walls
this Townhall looks small and somehow out of Place

It would be Great if it would Change its looks with the Time or with Research

For Example it could be dependant on the Walls

Having One Layer of Stone Walls will make it grow a little to a Fortified Town Hall which no longer has those Wooden Construction on its sides but is a Full Stone Building and waving some Banner (maybe your own Banner later on)
since just to say this
when Lenloth Came to my City and Told me that my Town Hall looks Shady
I couldnt help but Agree
Since when does a Lord renown at the Kings Court life in a Shed ????

Having Both Stone Walls Completet will turn the Town Hall into a Full Fledged Castle
Maybe having some small Towers of its Own or having an Own little Yard in which the Advisor Resides :P
Best of course would be something that lifes up to the rest of the Town
something Standing Tall at above your Walls and Defences
something that really looks worth to Defend
and not like now some small Beggars Shed that seems to breaking down any moment and which you dont even see when Viewing the Walls from the Outside

i would also be nice if when a castle gets larger the roads become cobblestone roads / less grassy insside your keep

^^ i mean my swordsman have heavy boots... they make quite the mess out of all that grass

We always wanted to do something like that. Also high level Townhall/keep upgrades would have second level where your units could work (sort of like the main building in Stronghold). However this requires quite a bit of Art work - but we will get to this eventually...

That would be really nice
A Keep that could be walked on or even worked in would be much more fitting to sit atop the Inner layer of walls than the Current Town Hall



Well I already assumed that GFX Works are main reason for this not be happening
it often is one of the main causes of delays
after all art work takes time ....
