    This is my newest terrain, it is a large city built on a mountain. Comments and suggestions are welcome :)

    Did you have the graphics settings, like AA on when you took it? Cause the tufts look rather jagged. It's awesome, but the snow on the cliff looks bad IMO. Overall, really good.

    Thanks for the comments guys :)

    And no, I didn't change any AA or graphic settings to take the screenshot. As for the cliffs, I know it doesn't look that great, but I didn't like having just another cliff of just the rock tileset.

    I like it, but I think the rocky "cliffs" ruin it. They are all one tile! I think you should put some dirt and rough dirt tiles in between the rocks and also go over it with the raise/lower tool to make it a bit more jagged.

    The movement of the knights are quite a nice addition. Brings life to it.

    The castle is quite good, and the rest looks very natural. Although this may not be a Legendary Terrain, but it's a very good one. It's not the epicness, it just looks real.

    I just opened it up in Magos Model Editor, and changed the name of the walk animation to Stand-1, and then deleted the rest of the stand animations. Then I imported it back into the WE.

    As for the cliffs, I will try and use your suggestions and do some work on them over the next few days, and see what I come up with.

    Screen shot needs AA. AA will make the image appear more smooth and less saw blade like. Next to that, the terane is near flawless.

    As you said, the cliffs are not that cool, they're kinda strange... but that's not your fault, it's hard to make something cool with them.

    I think you could make the fog denser, Idk.... Something can be done for a cooler look...

    Very nice terrain, mainly because of the way you placed the walls, towers and the knights!

    I really like this terrain. Well done. =) The only thing I'd recommend is to make the water darker.
