Deleting Town Center (at start) is no good idea on this map. There are trees even inside the TC (row top/left side), so deleting TC would give you just 3×3=9 free tiles, not 4×4=16 tiles (size of a TC). For a lumber (keep chopping trees) and a mill (it's all about getting food asap) you need 2× 2×2 = 8 tiles... only 1 tile won, but u have to rebuild TC later.
U have a long booming time on this map, with lot of micromanagement needed. however, if u like FN but u like to have a faster boom, there r FN maps with some space around TC (a 7×7 tiles free spot is good. U still need to chop trees to be able to build 1st farm. however, deleting and rebuilding TC makes much more sence there). The Forest Nothing Lakes map has such a 7×7 tiles free spot at start...
However, i wrote that FN Lakes map. I didn't wrote this FN edge gr. But i prefer playing this 'classic' FN.

Could be better if there was at least a sigle row of blocks open for cutting beyond the trade center... Sucks you have to delete it in order to start.
also some random gold/stone/berrys scattered around the forest would make more sence... then nothing.

It's a random map, not a custom scenario. So, it has whatever population limit u choose. :)

gold and stone? nope. u have wood, so, once u have cut for building-space, u can build a mill and then farms. then u have wood and food. for feudal u need just food, and for the market just wood. then u can get gold and stone from market - therefor it's a racing to get first feudal and a market. with tons of wood there is a difference of getting initial 70 or 14 gold per 100 wood.
later in a teamgame u may have some tradecarts for goldincome (and strong units). however, for 'early' attacks: pikes & skirms can build cheap and numerous.

But where are the gold and stone mines?
