I'm very inclined to agree about some of the path spaghetti, especially since I know you originally designed the path system to blend into the landscape rather than be overbearing. I followed the instructions of your signs in cleaning up some of the paths, and I think it looks much better. If I have a chance, I'll try to help work on some of the partially-built paths as well.
Currently, all wooden paths start from the same place near the top of spawn. Is there a second place we'd like a path to come from as well, or does this seem central enough?Perhaps there's a spot near the sealed-off entrance to Merth's batcave, behind the second shop?
