I was the "last one" in Santa Barbara, soo..i'm the "first one" at Empire Bay!Very promising pictures! I like your landscape Viel Glück und Spass für das neue Projekt
Your new work begins. I am very impressed by the scenery. An exciting region. I wish you much fun. (the waterfall is spectacular )
Raphael, it's great to see your new effort up and going--and to an auspicious start! I really like what you've done with the CP trees and RRP flora--you've certainly created a lush landscape there.And it's great to see someone else use the Kinbasket Lake map, too. It's fun and challenging terrain, to say the least, and I'm very interested in seeing how you develop it. -Alex
Great start for his new journal, good luck to you. Fantastic waterfall!
I like it. The stage is set for many interesting things to come. I really like what you've done with the trees and meadows. The only thing that stuck out to me was the rock mod. It's a good color and all, but on large bits on uninterrupted cliff it seems a bit repetitive. Perhaps add a few plop rocks or a bit of variation to the terrain to try to break it up, but in pictures like 1.3 it's interesting in that the trees are dense, the waves/rollers in the water are dense and the rock texture follows suit. It's a nice composition in that sense, but given the update, it doesn't seem like that was the concept you were after. Pictures like 1.4 on the other hand really show off the rock mod nicely. Great feel to that one. The barren chilly feel comes across quite well in the early morning/later evening light.Also, as for 1.6, it's interesting there are rapids only along that one little part and nowhere else. Was this perhaps the source of a mill from the former kingdom, or just a quirk of nature?-Matt
Wow, great pics... I too like the waterfall, but also the remains of the buildings as William Tygard I was king. It´s hard to believe nobody came her since then. The winters may cold and long, but the land looks good for people who like a life without the restrictions of the feudalistic era (a lot of dense forests to hide a little village).And a perfect place for the tower You did find, from here You can make a light and wait till ships and load comes for free. Maybe a good place for wreckers... I´m intrigued...Greetz, Carl
Yeah!!! Been waiting for your fresh start...Awesome intro, will look foward to know what's coming up nextMatt
Great start. I like the landscapes and the water fall.
Excellent start Raphael The area sounds a bit Nordic and I'm curious what your take on that kind of area will be. So far I'm really enjoying the natural scenes you've created especially the sunny mountain.
I'd join in suggesting a different rock mod--personally I love Ennedi's HD ones on the LEX but I know there's other great ones available as well. Another thing is the trees--they look great now but I'm wondering if they're seasonal (snow-covered in winter). That would be great for the region's long, cold winters. Girafe's various seasonally snow-covered coniferous trees have been a godsend for me.Have fun continuing I'll be following excitedly
Amazing Map. I'm curious about your new towns and how they fit into this beautiful landscape.
Nice start, Raphael!Everything is looking really nice. You chose a nice map, and by far the forest are wonderful. Can't wait to see more.Arthur.
Great start of your new MD! Looking forward to more from this nice region...
This is unacceptable! (seriously, it's awesome!)
Great start! I can't wait to see where you take this. ,marsh
A lovely start, Raphael. Great pics, crisp graphics and... I'm a pushover for waterfalls.David
Very nice start, I like the photoshopping effects. Looking forward to more.
Promising start!The region you have chose is really nice as the nature picture. I like the "Widows Peak" picture
Great start! I'm eager to see how this develops further.
Are you still playing on the Kinbasket Lake map? I thought you had changed in between.
Interesting update, a far cry from the urban landscapes of Santa Barbara County, but still great.
It always a good surprise to see an update in your MDs. I really liked the fact that you didn't use streets but mpp's to make trails. Look foward for more. Matt
QuoteDovahkiin BrotherhoodYes! Lovely work. It will be interesting to see how you take rural scenes. ,marsh
The monastery looks good, it´s a nice place to live there but i´m not eager to try this vinegar they have in their cellars. And i´m searching for the dragon´s lair but can´t find it. Greetz, Carl
This is the first time I can recall ever seeing a monastery represented in an MD--and I think you've done an extremely convincing job of it. The amount of detail built into it is absolutely incredible. And the landscape around it is very well put together as well. I'm really very curious to see where you go next from here, too.Quote from: RickD on February 06, 2012, 05:49:30 PMAre you still playing on the Kinbasket Lake map? I thought you had changed in between.Wakeman (my first region in Tarkusian Cities) was on Kinbasket Lake . . . I still play that region every once in blue moon, though I haven't showcased it in almost 3 years.-Alex
A very beautifully landscaped cloister. It looks very medieval. I'm looking forward to the future.
HEY! Sorry to hear that SB is done. I loved that MD a lot! Your downtown in the last updates was fantastic!anyways, glad to see you start with a new MD. the best of luck to you!
Awesome work with the monastery The farms, gardens, trails, and buildings work together very well. And what are the new visitors up to?!Nice to hear you're wanting to visit Finland! Northern Europe is a spectacularly beautiful place. It's definitely a bit different here than in Norway and I'm sure you'd really like it. If you do end up visiting I'd be happy to suggest places to go and you're welcome to visit around here if you're in the north-central part of the country
Great start to your new endeavor - and it has catapulted you to number one on this week's Ben's Top Ten.
That is one nice monastery, Raphael! I really liked the detail put with the MMPs.
Love your monastery, great work !
