    Anyone know of any sources on that info?

    @Torstan

    Those scottish ridges are actually an artifact from importing DTM data for europe as the base layer for mountain creation. I had to scale & fit one european map on top of the other, & near the coast of the northern countries that match didn't quite turn out. I have no exp with rubber sheeting in Gimp (don't now if its possible) just used scale layer & moved it around manually to get a 'best fit'. You'll see the same stuff at the northern border of Denmark & the east sea countries. I'll be getting rid of those in a later stage

    cheers

    As a side note, I believe there is a FT or Wilbur map that has that area already created, and I believe there is a CC2 map that has the British Isles all mapped out. I'm not at home to check, but I'm sure someone else here can check on it and perhaps upload an image.
    Bill Stickers is innocent! It isn't Bill's fault that he was hanging out in the wrong place.

    Oh, missed the reply earlier. Glad to hear it. I missed it on Denmark because the effect is to make it look flat - which is pretty accurate!

    OK, i've updated the map with forest coverage, based on a 1929 article (best i could find on forest coverage). Any suggestions on the forest are welcome, not really comfortable with it as it is now.

    Also added some extra noise on the mountains as well as the rivers, where i put on an inverse bump map for a depth effect.

    comments plz

    cheers
