I restricted building to the basic N E S W directions, but in return, your buildings will now link up in a grid.
For instance, from the center, you put a smithy to the east, then a well to the north.
then you go north to the well and build a farm to the east.
Well that farm is north of the smithy, right? The game will search and find that, then go ahead and link them together, so you can go south of the farm and get to the smithy.
Now, what next? I'll let you all decide, poll going up!
