    Forest looks very nice to me. It's thick but subtle in a natural way, if that makes any sense. It's dense but it doesn't stand out or seem out of place. It might be worth changing one or two things, but that's just my opinion.

    For example, those mountains (to me) are perfect for one or two very thin rivers to flow from them down into the lake. As for the forest itself, I really like the way it looks but the borders of it seem too consistent. By that I mean, it might be worth having the forest density gradually thin out a bit as it reaches the ends.

    Decided to add a small village. Here is the first sample of the design I'm looking for...

    I had to change the way I did the forest to match better with the houses. Requires still small twaking but I leave it like this for the time being. I might do more than just this one village. Maybe some mining and/or trading outposts.

    That is absolute amazing. Makes me think about the first "Myst" game for some strange reason. Keep the good work up!

    I love it. BTW, I've been wondering for some time how you go about making your buildings. I imagine that the base layer is some type of bevel & emboss with a pattern overlay, but how do get all those chimneys and extra details? Are you manually adding each of them?

    Cheers,

    pasis, this looks so great, I've got this tab open for three days now, wondering what to say! It looks just like an areal photograph.

    Thumbs up!

    Attached is a guick guide on how to create the houses in the village. I had no time to describe all the steps in smallest detail, but I hope you can follow it anyway.
