    Hey, this is my newest Terrain, it somehow feels not alright, maybe you can give a feedback so I can change it asap to make it look better.

    Uhm, maybe the barrens wind and rocks? It doesn't fit into grassy landscapes IMO

    It was thought for a savanna, a savanna is rocky and there are grasses too.

    the grass right up in your face needs to be toned down a bit. (color wise)

    EDIT: also, you should add more shrubs. custom colored.

    What's wrong with the sun/moon redscores? It's what I told you to do, although moons don't look great using glow model. Maybe try deleting a few so it's less bright.

    well, you said it was night? still theres a sun ? O.O
    and yes, the wind dont fit, and i dont like the rocktile in the front either, looks like its human made, or is it naturall that so many completely identical rocks ley together?
    And it would look better if you had it like daytime and madde another fog. And the animated grass models in the middle of the screen crashes with the orange grass tile. Make something that moothen it out a bit. and THEN you got a good pic :D

    Tint it like the water is in barrens, cause barrens water isn't blue like that

    Dont make it so Cliffy, as far I'm aware savannas are pretty flat.
