Any tips or ideas on starting a town? One issue I'm having is making the land flat. I can only find leveled land, so I have to shovel ALL THIS DIRT. Any ideas how to start and what particular places I should look out for?

A lot of places just level out a big square and build houses around it..and just keep expanding. It takes forever but it's the best.
