@CatrographerKing, one thing I realized is this. There is no actually use of the motorway because there are no links. Also, the same motorway 'ends' on a secondary street, but it can't end on it because it is a tunnel.

  1. I think so the city looks nice, but make the freeways better.

  2. London style? Well, London usually has a really big river and many motorways, and there are a. lot of living streets and plazas.

  3. City's old name? Well, it depends on its history, geography, and culture. So it would be better if you name it.

  4. It depends. If you empire spreads into other countries it would be better if you ask the owners first.

  5. No, you shouldn't start collaboration in the city.

CartographerKing, a starting point would be to compare against real life cities on openstreetmap - how does it look?

I agree with iiEarth, that motorway either needs to be upgraded with grade separations and on/off ramps, or downgraded to a trunk or primary road.

I love how you cap every first letter in the questions

  1. Buildings shouldn't be attached to the roads (There are some distances between roads and buildings!). Oversized offices (Southeast, also remember that 1 100mx100, block ≠ 1 building! Look at real life examples). Motorway. Personally I think there's too much commercial landuse. Maybe redraw the coastline to make it more real. You shouldn't cover the entire country in grassland (Even if Arlo did it). Too blocky, add some out-of-the-grid roads like Broadway.
  2. I honestly don't know. River? Some historical buildings? I mean it's in your best interest to look on openstreetmap instead of asking us eh. Also London isn't blocky.
  3. Does it need one? Your choice.
  4. "Empire" isn't small. Duchy you meant?
  5. I mean sure, if you want help then there's people could help, but it's entirely your choice.

Your city is american style - nothing to see from "London". And why and for what this long tunnel? If yo will draw an old european town, then start with the historic center - a castle, the wall, townhall, a cathedrale, guildhouses, market place. And first - delete this tunnel.

I propose to eventually link New Castle with Aspera [Kanitario's capital on the bay just to the north] by ferry, if you don't mind :)

I think to get that London style the road layout should be far less grid-like and symmetrical.
