Here is the capitol building in my town. It is stained by seaside air and constant rain. I feel like this texture is a good basis for Osgo rooftops if you guys want to have something to reference!

Good refrence but also add the fact its ruined and mostly abandoned for the last 1500 years so quite a bit of over growth

Dirt only stays if it's kept in place first by moss, later by grass, otherwise it just flies back the same way it got up. Dave, you said the green patches look good on roofs, those are quite realistic. Bare dirt however is neither realistic nor good-looking.

The onyl buildings i see with grass growing on the roofs are stuff with plain roofs where a lot of dirt accumulated on the top.
I think a sloped roof or broken roof will just cause the dirte to fall down, so stuff in the corners aye but not randobly over all the roof.

Its quite hard to show a dip in the roof where grass can grow thats the point of the grass pack but we will see how we can fix this so all are happy

Thanks for these comments gives us something to aim for an help maintain a constant theme <3

Especially the second picture we used alot as inspiration for osgiliath, here you can also see grass develop on sloped surfaces.
And pieter about the dirt on the roofs I agree, However we dont have any grass slabs in the pack, so its difficult to add green and smooth looking patches.

Seeing as both ooits and dav are busy right now, your third best option will update you on what's up in Osgiliath!

So right now, we have kinda left the first island how it is for now, and moved on to the second island. Here we've built guardpost on both bridges and the main camp area. Houses are slowly being vegetated by commoners and adventurers (if you want a plot just message me on discord/Minecraft). I've also gone over many of the houses and improved them by adding support, lowering/removing many dirt patches, removing stone on dirt, placing flowers in clusters, etc. etc. This process takes a while, and I would love it if someone could help me with checking the rest. The outer wall has been done mostly by @Roel2005 and @Xmine01, and the main road was finished today during a job, but shoutout to @Fiskaren10 who made a big part of it all by himself.

What's there to do? (on this island)

- Finishing camp and roads
- Adding vegetation to the rest of the houses
- Going over and checking & improving already vegetated houses.
- Small Defence with the river
- Finishing the last parts of the outer wall (+ towers)
- Vegetation between houses.
(In the next week or so we're also gonna try to speed up some of the processes with WE)

If you want to do something in Osgiliath, there's something to do for every one of you, no matter what rank you have, so join in and make middle earth greener!



Yours Truly, The Osgiliath team

If u have any questions, just message us.
