    So here's some shots of the playable terrain for a map I'm working on. Show no mercy in telling me how I can improve but keep in mind I don't really give a crap about fog and the sky since you won't see it in game.

    The tiles seem very mechanically-placed. A good rule is to take a square 2 brush and go over your terrain, and if at any point there is an area where the entire area of the square 2 brush is filled with the same tile, you need to fix that area. Unless it's a city or something, ofc there are always exceptions.

    Well you could start adding complex layers of mountains, passes to make it more interesting.

    A bit less shrubs to and I don't think the books are weather-resistant :3
