Nature and the wild
This is the map I'm working on. A 18km by 18km city tile.
Up close the map feels massive.
I'm using texture replacements for the water and ground. The water is especially good.
The map is Grand Teton National Park.
A lot of the flora on the map is from more recent creations on the Steam Workshop.
The mountains are breathtaking.
The map creator did a great job sculpting the mountains.
Additionally, the vanilla game has rocks and rock formations to complement the terrain. In future entries I will show the results of this.
I am using a mod called Ultimate Eyecandy to make the most of LUTs. It also allows for exact control of lighting which is great because the vanilla lighting was always too bright and yellow.
I am using the Roads United North America mod for road texture replacements.
The small road snaking off to the left is where I will build the first village.
Next entry, due sometime next weekend, I will show the finished village.
