    That's looking pretty cool. The trees aren't coming off as very "jungly" though, if they're supposed to. The straight stem-round top thing makes them look a little out of scale for some reason. Maybe at least the foreground trees should have branches and rougher foliage? Just a thought. Are you thinking that the ruins in the foreground are kept clear by someone...worshipers or something?

    What? You can't have an apple-tree jungle?

    I think it is meant to be more illustative than representative though, don't you?

    I'll do some changes on the trees then. I had the idea of a recently rediscovered town, halfway cleared of plants.

    At this stage it's too much work to change the trees. So let's assume the mighty Moxotec Empire founded some far away colonies in moderate climate zones, which vanished when the Empire collapsed.

    Nice. I can just taste the lamentation of the exploited natives as they harvest rubber for their colonial masters and die slowly from the ravages of alien diseases!

    I turned the map into a page of a magazine.
