    Cool ! In fact everything looks just perfect except for the white lines coming down the side of the mountain. I dont know what they are supposed to be. I speculate that its mist hanging in the valleys but I am not sure.

    How many and what types of image mask is this using to get this one rendered ?

    I've gone in a different direction. Mnidolluin is supposed to be blue aftert all- the name means:
    'towering-head-blue'. I may have over egged the blue a lil bit, but this is much closer now.

    hehe- yeah right, no the white lines were jsut a white shader so that I could see that the mask had gone in properly- nothing quite so swanky.
    I want to sue this mask to get some glaciers coming down- the snowline is just too simple here.
    The river mask can be used to apply a water shader and I'd like to get a transition from rapids in the mts- we'll see.

    This is a good 30 shaders, but only 17 are on Mindol. How do you mean, types?
    this really needs some displacement in the lower regions and I'm thinking of applying it with an inverted flow map, that way none of the rivers are affected.

    Good.. I am all about me some skiing, even though I don't get to go very often. I will hit the cafe as long as it has Rum(dark) and Cider.

    Thanks mmmmpig!

    I've tried to put in glaciers manually in PS, but it's a problemmatic process as the snow is procedural here- as opposed to an image amp which would make it easier. So, the glaciers don't quite connect correctly with the snow flow.
    Going in the right direction tho.
