Unfortunately it would not be very useful with that tileset, or I
suppose iso tilesets in general as you don't see a large enough area
of the map (I tend to use trident exclusively). The number of
traderoutes beside the city name is only implemented for the plain city
descriptions not the city bar. I agree that it adds much clutter to the
mapview, though players tend to only use it when making traderoutes and
can easily toggle it with ctrl-t.
