    I was informed by @SugarKoala that some people were concerned about the river running through the hill near Helm's Deep. There is no need to be worried, because all that stuff will be fixed once the river is dug.

    hey @DSESGH where is the source because the source from near the caves is not large enough to support the large river we dug...

    After they voxel it it won't be as big, but still too big for the current source, I think.
    Any answers, DSE?

    There are 3 tributaries along the river, which will each have one or two sources. Before the first tributary, the river will stay around as wide and deep as it was before.

    I am aware of the geography, but even with three tributaries in the short space between the wall and the glittering caves, "the stream" is deeper than the Anduin in most places....

    I think it looks fine. The river will get a lot smaller after voxelling, that has always been the case.

    It won't end up that deep; probably 8 blocks deep at the most, which would be at the end. It was only dug that deep because there's a section in the middle that's at about y15 or so, so it needed to be dug to y8, and of course, you can't raise the digging depth.

    Seeing your next question, the low part will be raised with voxel, so the river will not have to flow upwards;)

    We already have a glacier flowing upwards (in the white mtns :p), so for the rest we stay classy

    Where is this glacier anyway? Or is it a secret?
