    Above is a map of all the rivers and sources for Gondor (this was from the staff forums so until that is back up I would figure I would post it here to be worked on/for all y'all to know)

    In other words, this is mostly a staff project as it requires voxel, however, artists and such are more then welcome to help building the sources themselves as long as they are top quality. Jobs for source digs can also be run and are encouraged.

    KEY:
    Green - Done
    Orange - Needs Work! (painting, covering bedrock, adjusting banks, etc)
    Yellow - Special Terrain (do not do)
    Pink - Related to a Separate Project

    Sources:

    • Source 1 - Complete!
    • Source 2 - Complete!
    • Source 3 - In Progress @firefuss
    • Source 4 - Wait!
    • Source 5 - Complete!
    • Source 6 - Complete!
    • Source 7 - Incomplete
    • Source 8 - Complete @iSMiTHz
    • Source 9 - Incomplete
    • Source 10 - Incomplete
    Sections:
    • Section A - incomplete
    • Section B - incomplete
    SPECIAL NOTES:
    • Only work on Sections A and B for now (#1-10)
    • The exception being those sources attached to the White Mountains directly
    • Do not do a source if it is connected to a mountain that has not been painted properly
    • Do one section at a time and keep me posted on your progress
    If you have any questions, just ask
    Thanks!

    Updated.

    I went through the sections that were marked as done and made finishing touches as well as worked on the Anduin itself. @iSMiTHz and @firefuss , whats the status on your river sources?

    On a short note: make sure you make a smooth transition from the source to the river. I've seen a few sources who were pretty badly made.
    Also some rivers are pretty wide to be just side rivers. I'd suggest narrowing them to a creek-size form.
