    Created the project map for region above Ithilien/at the mouth of Mordor based on the Atlas depiction. @Tyranystrasz please note the new layout. @Finrod_Amandil I would appreciate your approval before moving forward with these changes, as it involves further nuking the Dead Marshes. Some notes on each component:

    1) The Road: Will need to have a clear path to the Black Gates with minimal inclination changes, similar to previous portions of the road the span Ithilien.

    2) Naman-Lands: Replace current worldpainter hills with terrain that matches the new terrain just outside of Mordor. These will be relatively desolate.

    3) Dead Marshes: Sorry @Wollip666 but according to the new map layout and Atlas depiction, the swamps must be moved Westward. The current marshes will be replaced with Naman-Lands terrain.

    Looks great to me. I would just keep the road a bit longer next to the mountains near the Morannon as it is described in the book:

    If there are any staff members looking for voxel work (or simply need a project), please let me know! I would love the assistance as there is quite literally a lot of ground to cover with the addition of the Naman-Lands and the Dead Marshes.

    *puts on glasses* ah yes that is an O not an A... thanks

    By the way I looked it up and the No-man Lands consisted of long shallow slopes, arid moors, and sedimentary layers of earth or rock... So all around pretty barren.

    Update:

    Still looking for another designer to help with the northern terrain.

    Great progress in Harithilien the past few days with the help of @Napoleon0605 @Merlinc01 @lolbroek108 and @superlolster360 ! A bunch of new streams, some roads, all looking great!

    PROJECT POST UPDATED! NEW MAP!
    [​IMG]

    The border between Ithilien and Harithilien is once again whole and complete! Please go check it out as I think some of it turned out quite spectacularly. Thank you to everyone who helped with the numerous stream and road jobs, extra large shout out to @Napoleon0605 for digging more streams than anyone combined.

    My new focus will be the southern border of Mordor. This portion of the project will be somewhat dull update wise, as simply involves transitioning terrain that nobody will ever visit/will probably get nuked when we redo Harad terrain anyways.
