I honestly think the VX RTP tiles just aren't made to make good forests. Trees should be bigger than houses, like the ones above. As to the general mapping, it looks ok, but the tree placement could be a little more random. Even though it's a village, the people who live there would probably want a few trees incorporated into the town's design. Also maybe add some butterflys and other critters to liven it up a little? I think forests are difficult to map. Towns in the middle of forests are always fun in games though! Thanks for posting.

I understand now. Thank you for clarifying
For the logic part, I try as much as I can to follow some sort of plan or logic, but I'm not sure if I'll ever really be able to get as in-depth with the map creating as you mentioned before. I consider mapping one of my weak points, it's more of a chore to me than a fun part of the game creation. I focus mainly on story and music, but I create the maps myself anyway because it's part of the game and I like the fact that I created them myself.
I like the tree arrangement that you posted, I will give it a try and see if I can pull it off. Thanks
