I like the sky from the first image, and the left building's nearside wall, and that the gateway behind the statue lines up


I like the well, and right building roof from the second image

See, I quite like the statue not lining up from the second image, but overall I think the first image is better, mainly because of the sky.

Thank you so much for your voices. This last picture had a huge traction on Facebook, where it gathered over a hundred comments pointing out that the "lower" option was better, but I do see your point and there were other voices pointing out that the first picture has its redeeming qualities.

I mentioned about it and some worldbuilding stuff in our third devlog. : )

Looks a lot better! I like the extra leaf detail and look like there is more depth in the background of the forest floor. :)

Are you going back though and reworking a lot of you old background art?

Thank you! I'm afraid to even think about it, but it starts looking this way. ; (

I must admit, as a person I find no comfort in animal trophies... But the colors of this building - home to the family of hunters who live in Windy Meadow - directly move me, like a place I would love to see in real life.

Ah, the character name search/replace - I know that one very well, had some issues with it working on LIFE :)

My apologies for being late this time. ^^ We have this nice tavern with two empty, ugly paintings inside... What would you like to see in their place?

Members of the family would seem the obvious subjects? Unless they have some other significance, like they'd be hanging pictures of a monarch or religious figures or something. Or you could replace it with a more usual tavern beam artefact - a really long tusk from a monster, or some tankards, or something like that.

I  disappeared from social media for about 10 days (I apologize for being quiet on Twitter, Jubal!), but once I returned, we made a lot of  progress. We haven’t finished making all of the required graphics yet, but the game itself finally gets close to its final form. In other words - we started filling many of the in-game areas with their inhabitants. : )
