Building Levels

This time around are we supposed to finish the build and then work backward to get back to level 0? Or is it still OK to build from zero up? That's what I'm doing. Right now, I have level 0 finished, I’m ready to start on level 1. But you know if that's not how we're supposed to do it, let me know.

You can do it either way,
As I understand it, with SS1 once the plots were down they had to stay in the same place for the higher levels. Starting from the top down made it easier to ensure they were in the right position for level 3.
With SS2 you could have 4 completely different plans, with plots changed and reorganized across the settlement. (it would likely tax weaker PC systems and consoles though), so starting from bottom and working up is fine.
Whatever works for you, grow your vision, or start big and demolish stuff :)

Be aware that plots will also retain their level by default! If you leveled all your plots up to 3 for your level-3 city plan for screenshots, make sure that you revert them back to 0 (or whatever level you intend them to appear at) before exporting your plan.
