Heh, I am no expert. I think the background can be indeed dark or close to, but you need light spots here and there, strategically, in order to identify the buildings and have an artistic perspective. No light-reflects from buildings, but lights. Anyway, your town is heaven of lights, compared to Silaneo's necro.

Here grove, I hope you understand what I mean, when looking at.

So should I put torches near buildings and such?

I don't know, if I knew how to make a beautiful town, I wouldn't wait so long.

Just saying to add the interface when considering the town screen. This way you see when it went too far.

I don't see a lighting issue in all honesty. And I think we've discussed the topic back in the day when Lizzy was still deciding on whether he should go for a daylight or a moonlight setting.

No really lightning as atmosphere, maybe just some graphical lightning elements giving more distinct shape to dwellings. A lake or river wouldn't look bad neither, especially when you can reflect the moon in.

Oh, man, we will not see Romanian Town for another several months, if it will go further with lightning.
RT is good as it now.

That's not a bad idea. A small river like Sal suggested sounds nice too. Overall I think you should focus on the "black" areas.

I think the roads are nice.
Overall, I think your townscreen works. But due to the critics and Grove comparison I was suggesting that you focus on these areas:

Wow that was fast work Looks pretty good,i think a bit better than the previous one,still i dont know how it has to do with dwelling visibility That water made me wonder - where shipyard is going to be ? I think the light in a big central hut is too strong on the top.The light should be stopped by the roof.Well I'm no light expert anyway

Well, I'll need to make a hell'of lights in my town too ;] The most difficult thing is to find ballance in that.Well I think your town looks already great,maybe the left side od the trees under the fort could be done a bit better,they seem to look like cut out in straight line and the left tower seems like its behind the mountain or sth.The lower part seems to blur out imo.Gj,I'll be keeping track on your town

If I was this conversation would be rather awkward

Well, it's not gonna have shipyard. Yeah, I know about the problem with the light on the tavern, going to fix it, but got more important things to do first. I also want to add more foliage in order to cover the blurred areas, but first I have to do all buildings so I won't have buildings splitting bushes in half

LizardWarrior, what do you think of this for the background?



Ps : Don't be afraid to be honest!

I like it because the trees are more visible and it's generally brighter, on the other hand it looks more like dawn and makes the lights seem exaggerated


Or a compromise: I put your background with low opacity over mine, so it still looks like night, saves me from a lot of re-contrasting and make the town brighter
