Despot's RP upgrade suggestion

  • Minecraft Middle Earth is a Minecraft community that recreates the world described by JRR Tolkien and his writings. Everyone can participate in organized events in which we collaborate to create major landmarks, terrain, caves, castles, towns, farms and more.

    To get started, visit The New Player Guide
  • Did you know you can upload your screenshots to your own Media section?.You can get ratings and comments on the uploaded material!
  • This weekend 20-21 April the website will be unavailable for a few hours for a scheduled upgrade and maintenance. Estimated time that the site will be unavailable will be around 3 hours.

  • This community does not generate revenue and relies on its members and financial contributors to keep it running.

    For a complete month, we would need around 235 USD for a break-even situation.

More details.
More "material" feeling.
Wet surfaces.

Thoughts?

I think I saw Peter Jackson in one of those shots. Good Work as usual Desp! Though I'd consider changing to basic stone bump map to be a tad more subtle.

Theres a lot of tweaking needed - both for bump maps and for spec maps. Stone rly looks weird sometimes (same for snowblock). Also, spec maps use only green scale now :<.

Gotta hold this, normal maps are pretty bugged and i have got no time to fix em.
