Nice pictures!

Good use of terrain textures as a path in 2.6

I didn't know Aerden was a Russian name   ;D

Not sure why I haven't commented on this yet, especially considering the amount of detail that has gone into the last update.

The landscaping is truely stunning with ever y tree looking like it should be there and I love that image of the vast forest.

Looking forward to more.

Very good Erik. I've gone over it a few times. I also wonder about the Russian thing. Did you have an idea of where Aerden is in the world?


Cheers

Gorgeous.  I'm both inspired and a little depressed.  So much detail.

I like the work of MMP! Nicely done!

noahclem

Absolutely stunning work  :o  Ærden is already amongst my favorite MDs, though knowing you I can't say I'm much surprised. Did you create your own rock mod? I realize the pic is old now, but that swamp one is a real inspiration for what might be possible in the noro delta area. Keep up the great work!

Fantastic.

The little camp with the fire is incredible.

What's not to like about campfires?! Except for the horrible smell in your clothes the next morning.  :D Thanks!

Though Ærden sprang from imagination, Potyomkin actually is a Russian surname. Funny you picked up on it as I'm quite fond of Russian literature and art. :)

Thanks Willy! Though I hope you didn't have to read it a few times before it was understandable?  &Thk/(

Anyway, you may have noticed I refrained specifying either Church or King. In part because I'm notoriously bad at coming up with names (hence all my previous regions were also called Ærden ;D). In part because I'm not sure yet whether the history and developments will tie in with real events and persons or not. And in that regard location still is up for grabs, too.

First an exploding brain and now depression, should I put out a health warning for my MD?!  ???  $%Grinno$% I hope the inspiration has taken hold over depression though. Thanks for stopping by!

Quite literal a cliffhanger indeed!  :D Thanks!

Thanks! Though I'd like to point out the trees are done with a controller instead of mmp-ed manually. ;)

Thanks Noah! The small gravel textures and such are courtesy of Gobias' SV terrain mod. As a proper rock mod I use #4 from shokthrpy's HD package. Also nice to have provided some inspiration for Noro. Swamps are fun to make because if it looks messy, it'll still look good!  :D




Speaking of swamps. .  I have some goodies that may come in handy. 

To celebrate the fact I registered for SC4D a little over three years ago (and to make up on an old promise) I present you the Seasonal Golden Oldies pack!  :party:

As the name implies these are seasonal mmps made from already existing evergreen mmps and some flora which has never been made into a mmp before. At the moment I still have the Read-Me left to do before sending it to the scrutineers. So you can't play around with them just yet, however, to whet your appetite below a breakdown of what's gonna be included. And maybe I'll throw in some non-flora related mmps for good measure.  ;)

First of all the items which need to be planted on September 1st.

Top left: PEG Weeds
Top right: SFBT Birches

Middle row: SPAM Crops

Bottom left: ALN Cattails
Bottom centre: CP Cattails and CP Grasclump
Bottom right: PEG Clover


Autumn


Winter


Summer

Since they don't have a winter livery the SPAM Crops disappear during winter time. ALN cattails are fantasy items but I figured they'd make a welcome addition. PEG Clover comes with a dark and light summer livery though it's hardly noticeable due to the small size (and because I cropped the picture too tight :-[).


Secondly the items which need to planted March 1st.

Outer left column:  ALN Wildflowers

Centre column: PEG flowers

Outer right column: ALN Grass


Spring


Summer


Autumn / Winter

ALN wildflower do not have a winter state, however, they're timed to last four months. The first stage runs from March to June, the second stage from July to October. So they have a one month overlap with the autumn livery of 'traditional' seasonal trees. Also notice ALN grass comes in two additional, smaller sizes. I'm not sure what the LEX policy is regarding uploading re-sized models though I hope it won't be a problem because the smallest (scaled at 50%) makes excellent HD grass.

Finally, I can't leave you without a small gif to demonstrate, right?!  ;)



That's all for now, 'till next time. Erik.
