    I was not happy with either the colours or the "roofs" effect; thus I removed the latter and swapped the former for two uniform patterns. Both will be reinstated once I will have better figured out how I want them.

    Update. The high left river bank should be more or less finished as it is.

    That looks great feanaaro! The waterfall is awesome. I like the current look of the buildings, though I suspect that they will look even better in the final version.

    This is really impressive! I just now began to realize how huge the waterfall is. Everything fits perfectly.

    I must admit, I had my doubts about this city when you started posting, but all doubts have been put aside now. This is coming along nicely. I like the placement of buildings - it's got a good historically realistic arrangement. Keep it up.

    Thanks for the comments, your encouragements are much appreciated.
    Here it is another step, the lower city, on both sides of the river, should be more or less finished as it is now (I mean, topographically; I still have to revise colours etc, as I previously said).

    Even if I'm not a great fan of height/realistic map, you're doing a great job on this one!

    The work on your cliffs is beautiful ! What exture have you used ? I've a problem with mine and Hoped you could share your wisdom.
    I find the placement of your houses very thoughtful, espcially economically. Quite impatient to see the finished map !

    What do you mean by "economically"?
    The textures I use have partly been found in this same forum, and partly downloaded from other places. I did not really keep track of everything, so I no longer know precisely whence they came (I think these two are, once again, from Pasis... I think...). I hope I don't offend anyone by re-posting them here.
    The cliff is made by superimposing the two rocky textures that you find attached upon the base terrain. They are pictured with a big soft brush with 10-20% opacity, in subsequent strokes. Also, both layers have a bevel, which is not noticeable with the soft 10% brush but can be used to represent some spots where the rocks pop out of the terrain.

    edit: actually, I am not even 100% sure that these are truly the textures I used now, it has been a long time since they were imported into photoshop. Anyway, you can find many other good textures around.
