Annotations

While this is one of the best city and town generators that I've ever seen it is not without problems. The biggest of which I can see is the annotations overlap in larger cities with districts next to one another to the point of making several unreadable. I'm not so lazy that I wouldn't just write it in afterwards to make it easy to understand, but I can't help but think there should be options to: make the maps bigger in order to more easily read and separate the annotations, make it so the annotations do not overlap over one another with a smaller font or by budging them around in the case that they're close to one another, or making it so they cannot be close enough to one another. 

I love this map generator and I can work with the somewhat limited specific alterations but this is more of an argument of convenience for everyone using it. 

Thank you for your consideration and time.

Thanks for the feedback.

In the last update I've added an option to change the font size of annotations, it should help a little. In theory I could implement a smarter algorithm to place them, but to be honest I always considered labels to be a feature of little importance. As far as I can judge people don't use them much. When there will be more interesting generated neighborhood names I'll try to do something to fix the situation, maybe I'll add map legend as an option.

Thank you very much for the quick response! I'm happy to hear about the update and I can't thank you enough for it!
