@ murambi: Thanks, and no, i'm just using a directional light only, nothing fancy at the moment. I won't really get into detailed renders until the project is completely finished.
@ stwert: rofl, I was wondering if anyone would notice that. For the moment it is scaled, I was just to anxious to finish other stuff to go back and redo the tree. All the tree trunks are mainly stand ins right now. Eventually, I'll sit down and model several different ones but not anytime soon. I agree though, I should fix that small tree so that the leaves are bigger and possibly different. Thx m8.
P.S. It might be several days before I add anymore updates as I'm working on the layout of everything. ie. how the community, town, streets, etc will be laid out. It's turning out to be a real challenge...and I thought it would be simple.
Don't be satisfied with what you can do but rather strive to do the things you can't do!
