    It already looks great, compared to the original version. Great job!

    I've been taking some time off to play some vanilla Civ 4 so that I can get some ideas about what sort of buildings to add. I'll do up some SimCity and Ceasar 3 as well for my, uh, "research".

    They are excellent 'research' tools. Maybe see you again in a month or two?

    It's looking great. I was wondering about the outlying areas. I think (though this could be nonsense) that houses normally cluster in the valleys around an area - I guess because of the water source. On your it looks like they are very evenly spread, or even more likely to be on the crest of hills?

    Looking forward to seeing the next iteration.

    Dagnabit, why didn't I think of that?! To be honest, I just did up a noise layer at 2% noise and then deleted everything not white...hoping that it would look random. Guess I gotta put on my "rural housing planning hat" and redo them suckers. Thanks, man.

    Ah ha - I thought they looked a little too even. I'm sure you've still got the heightmap around - surely some combination of the heightmap and the noise layer will give you higher densities in valleys and fewer on the peaks? Sorry for waiting until it was this far along to notice

    Yep. I'll copy some of these layers back into the original terrain psd and do the select - color range - fuzzy white and delete some of these suckers. And if I find that I need more in certain areas I'll just use a scatter brush.
