    I really like how you did the farms that dot the landscape. Are those done by hand?

    Thnx, the farms were actually rather simple. The texture was made by Bambua, he's got some good textures. Having determined that farms shouldn't extend more than 2-3 miles out from a settlement I drew a 3 mile radius around the settlements and painted in random layouts of farm, keeping close to the roads and rivers where possible. A few layer style tweaks later and bam, farms done, simple right?

    As no-one seems to have mentioned it it must just be me, but those rivers seem bevelled the wrong way or something. They seem to be bubbling over the land to me.

    Otherwise the map looks great.

    Your not the first to mention that, its a constant problem I face. It's probably because the light is coming from the southeast rather than the northwest as is the default setting.

    That was my first observation as well, but now I don't see it like that anymore for some reason. The rivers are actually my favorite part and now my eyes pick up on them as if they're "sunken" into the landscape and not on top of it. Weird.

    As LoneW said, its the ligthing coming from an unexpected direction that messes with your senses... but as soon as you tell your mind what is "right" you see everything normally
