    Default real relief reference

    if you want to compare you own generated relief with mother-nature one, or if you just need inspiration, you can go to this site http://www.maps-for-free.com/
    don't forget to remove all the unneeded layers (google, waterbodies)

    FWIW

    Wow, that's pretty cool.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    This adds a real perspective to the way the roads and towns work with the landscape. A great exploratory tool

    Awesome! Just being able to see the relief of the area where I live in such resolution is something I've been hankering for. Repped to the extent of my ability
