    The shrubs don't look too bad, though that tree in the top left seems a bit off color to the rest

    Yeah I know but I'd like it to stay, if you look at it from the game its a grouping of them behind the walls.

    Ahh, that makes sense. Looks sweet right now, I don't really have anything to suggest. Maybe you should post up some more pictures of different areas you think you need to work on

    Post wherever you want, though if its more forests then this may be the best thread for it. If its some completely separate topic then yeah, a new thread should be fine.

    The Night Elven village doesn't looks Night Elven enough. Try using more Night Elven style buildings - you know, purple. And also more ancients\trees.

    Yeah as it stands now, the Dryad looks way out of place guarding human style buildings.

    Well if its just elves, you don't really need the Ancients (the Tree/Buildings that the Night Elves have in game), but you do want the buildings to look night elfish.

    The architecture and overall look of the buildings fits humans more than Night Elves. You could do the same with purple buildings and fancy decorations and it will look Night Elven. I recommend you use Moon Wells, "Night Elven Fishing Village", Huntress' Hall and Altar of the Elders.

    It's plain. Just look at it. Is that ground there dirt? and why there is fences straight from farm?
    You can get good wood flooring from UTM

    I'm going to totally change the layout of it but I need to know how I can make it a good floor instead of ground, only way I've used before is make the model of a pier big enough so you can't see its lights and thats wooden floors, but I can't find any floor models... except bamboo on hive.

    OHASDFKSJKA, you know what, I never look at skins because i'm not fully sure on how to apply skins. But i just looked at them and thats where all the wooden floor terrain tiles are... except I have to look up how to apply them...
