Studying flow charts from information gathered on the forums, I have determined that this is an optimum castle. For its population, it will sustain its self and grow. If you choose to add more Inns, churches or other non-food producing buildings, you will need to add 1 farm for ever hovel built *or so*
This, as it is advertised, the most efficient castle I have ever commanded. New resources, food, and weapons were always coming in, and I could charge high taxes with an evil fear factor grip without losing popularity. However, I found my food production to be a bit inadequate.
A very efficient castle. I don't really know what to say to justify the 5, but it was a perfect caslte.
I don't know how to rank a Free Build for balance, so I'll give it an average mark. Perhaps Gill could correct me?
The 5 is deserved because of the way he converted data into a map to demonstrate how to build the perfect castle.
Map Design: 4
The castle functioned perfectly, but it was not very good looking, with square walls and flat terrain, etc.
Didn't really have either of these, but the purpose of the castle gives it an average mark.

A Free Build map with an enormous castle is given here. It is important and shows where certain buildings should be placed if one wants to set up a most productive city.
- Apple orchards around the granary.
- Bakeries aside.
- Weapons workshops and armoury next to the stockpile.
