My other maps need work, too, but here is my proposal for changing location 2:
The most obvious change is the placement of the coal. Most is directly near the storehouse, which should ideally enable a plan with all coal-consuming buildings to be placed bottom-right of the storehouse. Another coal mine borders this space, which should suit the plan nicely. Further, a straight path to the forests to the right will enable coal mines to be sprung up quickly while also establishing solid wood production early on. Perhaps the most helpful effect from this change is that it was very difficult to efficiently build in the area between the gold and iron mountains. With only coal mines going there now, the plan is more simple.
There are other small changes as well. Against my stubbornness, I finally removed the extra trees bottom-left of the storehouse, enabling farms and other production to be planned more easily. More trees have been placed above and to the right to compensate for the lost trees.
All in all, I think the location should be much more enjoyable. Please let me know if I have your support for these changes.
