Default Reyes County
Since all of the terrain in both Seacrest and Disko is almost done I decided that I should make another world. The inspiration for this world came from my 2 week vacation to California. It is very loosely based on point reyes national park. Here are a few pics . Any feedback is appreciated.

You truly are a VERY talented person! The only thing a newbie like me can say is that in the last picture it dosent look very natural because it goes from dense to nothing. What are your plans?

It's only a bit, I know, but it's looking GREAT so far. Oooh cluttering plants together seems to be your specialty, and its working amazingly

If only California looked like this in real life!!! Well, maybe it does but not where I live!

It is looking lovely. I like the terrain painting and the middle picture is absolutely gorgeous and realistic. Can't wait to see what this one comes to.

Wow, another one already?
I wouldn't normally comment on such an incomplete work, but I can see where this is going.
Definately impressive so far.

Any details like world size, or is it mainland, etc?

The world size will be large with one side connected to the mainland.

Ooh, a California-based world! I love the terrain down there, especially the views along Highway 1 and Monterey. Your first two shots look spot-on, I must say, and I can't wait to see where you're going with this.

I like it so far (how could I not like one of your worlds?)!
The second pic of the first post is just WOW. Reminds me of the dry wilderness around Hidden Hills, CA.
May I ask you how you plan to develop an (eventual) urban area? I mean, Seacrest looks a lot like Vancouver or Seattle, will this neighborhood look like San Diego, LA, Santa Barbara or something?

Me, me, me against them, me against enemies, me against friends, somehow they all seem to become one, a sea full of sharks and they all smell blood.

Unlike Seacrest, this town will be very small. It will probably come out looking somewhat like this picture.



and one picture of progress


enjoy

Although i do love your terrain, I really think it would benifit from your bushes not stopping so suddenly at the edge of the cliffs. I think it makes it look odd and unnatural. Maybe just continue the grasses and bushes on some of the flatter areas of the cliff face. It would help spread it out a bit more.

I think this is a good idea. This will take away that hard edge between the vegetation and rock. Now I just need to go execute this idea.

edit

Is this what you meant TVR ? I added a little grass around the edges.

Pretty much. I did mean .. well. You see that singular bush thats sitting right near the sea on the complete right side of the picture? how its lower and its kind of helping with the transition from land to ocean? I meant like that. But I do also like what you did with the cliffs now, how it sorta goes further, rather than just stopping. Very nice.

The transition is much better now, but to me it still looks strange. As it is, to my eyes it looks like the cliff... has herpes. You know cold sores? And they're spreading!

Maybe using terrain paint for the vegetation with only a few shrubs would look better? I'm reluctant to say it can't work as it is, though. You have a great "intuition" when it comes to landscapping, Ouerbacker, so maybe after you work more on it it'll start looking more natural.

Edit: By the way, the darker terrain paint where the cliff meets the water is looking great!

Does this look a little less like herpes ?

OOOOOOOOH. thats fantastic! GREAT. I do love this. I do have 1 quick thing.. I think that the white terrain paint, right at the base of the cliffs, is a bit too.. white. :P

Oh yes, herpes is gone! but I'm still not happy about your color palette, sorry. The green on that hill is just rubbing me the wrong way. Hopefully it's only me :p

I actually miss some of the bushes and the tree. Maybe not as many but some. Although, I guess you can't please everyone.

I plan to add a few bushes back in once I've graded the path.

Looks terrific now, as long as some of the plants make a comeback.

That is looking wonderful. If I'm not being too nosy, what terrain textures are you using?

Looks great! But like heaven, I liked the vast amount of vegetation... but I guess she's right, you can't please everyone. It still looks fabulous though! :D
