    The changes in this don't actually address the most recent comments, but I wanted to show the alternate houses, because they are more appropriate for the setting. I am aware that one of them is blocking a road in an unnatural way, that I would fix if I stick with it.

    I also added some little rocky outcroppings that I generally think I like, though I might have to tweak them a bit.

    Alright, here is an updated map, with some changes. I'd like to hear thoughts about any of them.

    1) Some of my forests are different. I did these with RobA's Random Density Map. You can still see some of the previous forests, for comparison. I think I like the new forest better, but I might end up making a new animated forest brush to do them with that works in some different kinds of trees.

    2) Fiddled with the Lake some more. Not right yet, but I think I am making progress.

    3) I tweaked the house that was overlapping the road.

    4) Reworked the grass a bit

    5) Tapered the Rivers

    I think I am also going to redo the fields.

    Word of the day..consistency...

    Pick you light source direction and use elements that match...y have things all over the place currently...it's a good start, but needs few tweaks..

    Yeah, the older version of the forests and some of the brushes for the buildings are lit on the wrong side. I may be able to fix that.

    Blurry silvery bits are what? (Left of King's Orchard, for example.) Whatever they're supposed to be (rocks?), they're far too blurry to fit with the crispness of the rest of the map.

    Also, you have a field covering a tree in front of it; look below where the "Tulainn" label is.

    Yes, those are rocks. Not sure how to make them crisper, but I will see if I can fiddle with them.

    I know about the field. That won't be a problem on the next update.
