Love your nature shots. Just wondering if there is any way to fill in a thick forest? The brush tool leaves them (haha leaves) too sparse. The only way I've been able to do it is on the single brush and just paint in lines.

A small pond using the fake water prop included in the pools:

So Ron, how does this work?  Of course, on seeing the beautiful results you've achieved, I ran off and subscribed.  I opened my testbed map- completely flat- in the Map Editor and selected the prop.  I have both prop anarchy and prop snapping.  I found that the props will plop partially visible on a hillside but are lost when they are moved to flat terrain.  They also are not visible if plopped directly on flat terrain.  Nothing in Move It seems to help and they cannot be raised or lowered as best I can tell.  What am I doing wrong?  It would be great if these props could be tiled on a flat area that is slightly depressed to create a shoreline to allow for the creation of small custom ponds.  Thanks for your feedback!

Oh, and one for the thread.

If you have prop snapping, then move it should be able to raise them using page up.

That's what i have here - a little dip in the terrain and a bunch of water props.

Yep.  Confirmed that it just isn't functional in the Map Editor, but works in-game.  Thanks!!

On the hills overlooking the sea, campers are enjoying peace and quiet away just a short drive away from the coastal highway.
