    It's a prehistoric valley, just like in Littlefoot in case you have watched those movies when you were younger.

    I am experiementing with some new lightning techniques.

    In picture two I have reworked the atmosphere, and tried to make it look more realistic. I like the new sky better also... You guys were right. : >

    Cool I guess but also somewhat generic... by the way, why are the backs of the trees light? They should be in shadow.

    If the back of the trees had shading, they would look like paper. I don't like paper trees. :)

    I would have to agree with Insincerity about the shading, and I love that grass model, where?

    It does indeed look very genetic. : O By the way, it has one cloud doodad to fill up clouds, just saying. : >

    Nah but really... I could go ahead and put up a fogged sky, maybe some other, and then use the cloud doodads to put up some tinted clouds. Maybe I put white blizzard sky, and then put a black glow behind it to darken it a bit, but then affecting its color slightly with the terrain fog and then adding tinted cloud doodads for the clouds.

    Or I could just look at any other picture of a blue sky and figure out there is actually nothing wrong with the sky I currently have, except it being a blizzard default sky... But hey, it goes perfectly with the fog and the color of the doodads, and if I change it I would most likely not be able to create the feeling of piece it has now, because let's face the fact that every picture of a beautiful silent landscape has a blue sky with white clouds in it, and that is exactly what this is. A blue sky with white clouds. :)

    Go genetic sky, go! :D

    using the high res grasses and plants i see people usually use just grass x and it looks like crap, using it like this, how it is meant to be used, is good

    It's beautiful, but I'm finding that the light is a little bit overpowering to look at to be honest.

    wow this is spectacuklar.
    but to make it better :

    1) id hate to repeat it once again, but it needs a different sky =p that warcraft sky is my least favorite ( next to the yellow wc3 sky) perhaps the dalaran sky could work ?

    2) I love it. We are friends. mind tellin me how you did that lighting =p and what high rez grass model you used ?
