Introduction
Andrast is moving into Stage 3 where Stage 1 was terraforming (sandrast) and Stage 2 was materials. I have split the project up into 12 sections which are outlined further below. These sections are at varying levels of completion with some being fully complete and others still needing a little more materials to be added before adding vegetation. As different sections are started, more thorough plans will be posted here such as a map of the different vegetation types as well as some concepts for these types. For this stage of the project, I would love some help from the community whether that’s designers or artists joining the project staff or help through jobs.

The vegetation will be based mostly on Jace’s old map but some modifications will likely occur

Ok so here are some inspiration images, I will likely update this post with more inspirations photos if I find more. I'm also planning on posting several more posts in the future which will outline different concepts for each of these different vegetation types as well as any necessary information about replicating them such as through the brushes used.

Update:
I am happy to announce that I was able to finish section 3 (the delta) today. This brings 2 sections to being complete with several others quite close to being done as well. The only thing left for this section could perhaps be a tree fix job to fix any messed up trunks but otherwise, I'm happy to call it done. Have fun taking screenshots of the new terrain media team :D

P.S. I will be on vacation for the next week so there likely won't be any progress in Andrast

Update:
I decided it would be nice to add some half slabs to the delta and the river and I think this would be a great opportunity for some jobs. If any foreman are interested in running these jobs just message me on discord and I can give you some more details. I have already laid out some sections in red wool and there are some complete areas that you can base it on.

Example:

Also, after seeing some sneak peeks of the future vegetation update, I will likely redo a lot of the vegetation in the river and the delta so there will likely be even more jobs for that in the future.

Yet again another update...
I just ran a job on the delta and thanks to everyone's hard work involved the delta was able to be finished. This marks something like the 3rd revamp/completion of the delta (I think a 4th may be imminent with improved vegetation textures though). There will be some more jobs in the future though for completing the Lefnui.
