Update Nr. 11: Rammelsbach III (and final)

Last time we did the forrest tutorial in Rammelsbach so now we start in the middle of the forrest!

Pic 11.1: The Tower in the forest

The watchtower on the hill. The RRP paintings are Green Rye and Big yellow flowers. I like them - they remind me of dandelion.1.gif

Pic 11.2 The Tower in the forest II

You can hardly see the access road through the trees.

Pic 11.3: The Tower in the forrest III

The access road crosses the whole little forest until it reaches its border - defined here by another dirt track.

Pic 11.4: Forest Closeup

Another angle shows this nice view on the transitions from wood to fields. You can also spotr some of the older JeroniJ trees here - especially Ulmus and Aesculap add some nice green variation in the middle of the woods!

Pic 11.5: The last corner

Another finished corner of the map! 16.gif  This overview also shows how neat SimFox's "Big Round Tree" looks as a solitary tree!

Pic 11.6: The village

The other corner of this border of the map is finished, too. I especially like the small country lane that goes up the hill between the two fields:

Pic 11.7. A country lane

with some trees and RRP painting it turned out really neat I think! 1.gif

Pic 11.8 Fields

Another detail with a raised hide. I showed it before. I like it in its very own simplicity ... 16.gif

Pic 11.9. The Rammelsbach flows into the Ihner

The shores of the Ihner reached now a state that can be regared as "finished" even though I am not completely happy with the shore on the right side of the pic. 22.gif

Pic 11.10: The finished overview

And here we are: The finished overview! 16.gif

Pic 11.11: The finished overview

From another angle. Building this map I developed the idea of the village competition I initiated and run at the simforum.de!

And as a last goody I'll show you a small lot that mostly disappears in its surrounding:

Pic 11.12: Bonus: Another Closeup

That's it for today!

Have fun!

I LOVE that town! It blends so well with the terrain and forest. That road travelling along the smaller river looks so nice and serene, as well as that great touch with the crossing farther up.

Great work!
