The early stages

Hi everyone, this is my first CJ, despite being a member of this forum for years I haven't been particularly active, at all...

Anyway, this is a log of the development of an eastern style town, named Park Hwan. Sounds like the name of a Korean person, though that is because it is in the region of Busan. It bears no parallels with the real life area, and is more of an alternate reality, where the Japanese have retained control of the Korean peninsular, and thus influenced the architecture to a much more Japanese style than a Korean one.

When I started this, jagged edges wasn't working properly, so I apologise in advance. Hope you enjoy my CJ, please leave comments if you found it interesting :)

Park Hwan is not yet the name of the town, in fact, at this stage in it's development it is merely a collection of hamlets in a predominately rice farming area.

The temple is the focal point for the community, and serves as a place of refuge in floods. The floods can be devastating to the villagers, but they are essential for the good rice crops.

There is still no specific centre to the area, small collections of houses and shopping streets are dotted around the place.

The canal in the left hand side of the picture is part of the irrigation system, which was dug by the villagers after several years of floods being short, but powerful, leaving devastation and washing away fertile land.

Very good, I have one suggestion though. In the places where you have trees, add more. If you want you can also add logs, stumps, rocks etc.
