Join in for another update of Confluence Region.

So... The first tile of the region is complete. I begn working on two adjacent tiles as well. On this update you will see the latest progress, and by that concluding nature-related updates for the upcoming weeks. But hey! That dosen't mean that I will spare you from spectacular vistas, right?

Plains, Meadows and Marshes:

In these nine photos, selected from a variety of scenes, you will see the flood plains of the major river of the region.

Both the northern and southern banks are shown. The north bank was reworked, as I wasn't content from it.

Anyway --- This is the south bank, after the outline of the forest was plopped. You can see a shapeless form on the plain.

This form is actually the ALN marsh tool, brushed to the shape of a planned marsh. Sometimes you got to get to sleep and pause your work... ;)

Jumping forward, this is the marsh... completed!

Two close-up photos of the marsh;

And zoom 1 picture of the area.

The next four pics will show some scenery that was made in parallel to the marsh. The third one showing a clearing abundant with wildflowers, is my favorite.

First Tile Overview:

I can't believe that I have 11 more large tiles, and 20~ medium tiles to do in order to complete the region. It will take months in my work rate hehe.

This is how the region looks like right now:

Beginning from the next update, humans will arrive to Confluence Region for the first time.

Have an awesome weekend, at least what's left of it... thanks for watching/commenting!
