    Terrain is not like "We are going to to this in asap" but this will reduce by 80/85% the voxelling in Mordor and it will leave only the nice builds ;)

    Does that mean lots of jobs in about 6 months?

    Luckily the border of Mordor is nicely vertical, so if Tyran manages to make the border of the to-paste section right at the feet of the mountains it should overwrite not too much (I'd say in northern Ithilien nothing west of the Harad road).

    Really glad to see staff update behind-the-scenes voxelling. It's nice to be able to check this out even if it's just a couple of screenies. Nice work guys! Keep it up!

    I was out this week-end but as mister fish @Credoo suggested i'm trying to get better mountains especially on top. Also i've been working on the lowlands trying to get an average level terrain that won't need to much voxelling
    Gonna release some screenies soon

    LOL just thinking we should compile a "You're a LotR-nerd when you..." list and add "on the beach build Mordor instead of sand castles"

    Looks fabulous :O

    Make sure there's some fertile ground (grass and stuff) around lake Nurnen (that big blue thing) as it's where they grew the food for the orcs.

    Unfortunately i can't add the texture directly on WM however i did a fast test on WP and i added grass on the southern area.
    BTW the things i've noticed exporting it:
    The Mountains looks pretty good and the flat areas are really better than i expected.
    The rivers now are marked out, but they looks weird in game so they will need to be redone (at least we already have the location for it marked). Since the map is really big and i needed to export the heightmap in 8k (80 min of processing) some parts in the mountains looks empty. I can fix and improve, but i can't promise a miracle

    Does that mean we will need a texture for Maggoty Bread growing on plants and trees?
