    Yeah, the whole island cluster looked more natural in the original, but I wasn't happy with the shapes of the big islands. Now I'm happy with the shapes, but they don't look as natural. Buuut, I started wondering if I should flip the islands, so that Seria is in the south, and suddenly, I got a great idea

    Termya rises up the further south it goes, so that the entire southern end of the island is a cliff. Seria, which I intend to have more vegetation than Termya, is lower with a ridge (not really a mountain) running along the center of the island. If I rotate Seria 180 degrees, and move it south of Termya, then it starts to make more sense. If the southern end of Termya fell off in a landslide, then Seria is the result. If the smaller islands are moved to the north, then they can have that low beachy quality, like the northern end of Termya, they way I want.

    Sound thinking, I like it. Keep on keepin on.

    Maybe it's just me, but the fact that you can faintly see the radiating lines of the compass rose under the landmass textures kinda looks out of place.

    But I love the textures you've used and the nifty special efx like the waterfalls. Keep up the good work!
