That makes sense, thanksmonobelisk wrote: ↑Wed Oct 07, 2020 2:28 pm Locations will get flattened much like they do now, but at an increased radius so that it looks more like the landscape naturally allowed the location to be built there, and less like a perfect location-sized square was carved into whatever the landscape is. So locations that are currently positioned at high altitudes will retain their altitude, but the border will be smoother and more organic. I think I'm gonna make it so that locations at high altitudes (mountain peaks) will have a more narrow smoothening radius than locations at ground level.
That's good advice... yesterday I worked on my guides and texts, to adjust them to your mod, and I had to change quite a lot. For example, the 0.2 version of the mod had the following description for Makilliweyn:Also, btw, don't count on the landscape staying even remotely the same until it's finalized; slightly changing a decimal in one of the terrain generators can literally change the entire world beyond recognition, and I'll probably be changing quite a bit until I'm completely satisfied.
And yesterday I rewrote it for v0.3, to fit it better with Interesting terrains:Buried deep within the Dragontail Mountains lies the city
of Makilliweyn. In itself, it is not a very special place,
but travelling to the city through the eastern valley is
marvellous. If you are on horse or foot, the eastern route is
the only one feasible, since high mountains rise in all other
directions. The mountain to the south is called "Guard stone"
by the locals and it is so high you'll need a levitation spell
or jump out of an airship to reach its top.
Before you enter the eastern gate, take a few minutes to
calm down from the trip. Breath in the fresh mountain air, as
you relax from the climb. Adore the beautiful panorama, which,
by the way, is especially breath-taking when you arrive in the
morning in clear weather. (Having the sun in your back also
helps with the climb through the valley.)
So from "buried" the city suddenly got elevated to "mountain top" -- who knows who was responsible for that. Probably nother dragon breakDeep within the Dragontail Mountains, on a mountain top,

The Thirsty Rascal Pub is marvellous. From the village center,
head southwest, and after just a few minutes, you will see the
- still seemingly tiny - tower on top of a remarkable flat
top. Continue, and both mountain and tower will grow. You can't
head directly towards the city, though, since the mountain is
way too steep. You need to follow the slopes until you have the
mountain on your right side. Continue and notice how sparse
vegetation gets. Once you can't go on, turn right and you will
see the city walls in front of you. From here, the rest of the
tour is relatively easy. On a good day, without interruptions,
you can make the tour in about four to five hours.

But I will wait with my guides for a further advanced version of your mod, like, maybe, a 0.9 RC or even 1.0, and focus on other parts of my mod.
