    Honestly, the most natural looking cave I've ever seen in-game.

    Love the way your caves look. The column look a little weird though. I can't quite put my finger on it.

    Maybe it's the way they thin in the middle? Also the left one looks a bit like it has a tumor :p.

    Are the cave wall models available somewhere?

    I think the pillars looks a bit strange because the shading differs from its environment. In the left picture you can clearly see that the shading on the pillar is different from the cave wall, while in the right picture you can see that the ground is brighter/lighter than the pillar.

    @PROXY Maybe recalculating the normals of the pillars could help?

    EDIT: Alternatively use some artificial light sources (omnilights) to improve the light environment.
