Looking cool!
I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for my signature, I can tell you I don't have one. But what I do have are a very particular lack of skills, skills I have imagined having over a very long career. Skills that make me are completely useless in any situation. If you stop reading now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't stop reading, I will look for you, I will probably not find you, and I will kill your refrigerator.

Lor, for doing farms I would make one BIG polygon, then add thick line of ground color over the top to seperate.

it makes them all end up "in line" and look a lot neater.

plus it is faster, both work wise and cpu/gpu wise.

(At this stage, I get more enjoyment coding for this game then playing it. Weird right?)

True but there is a mix of different colors so I can't really make one big polygon of one color, and have different colored farms. I was thinking of that too. By the way farms in real life aren't perfectly lined up. Plus it would be hard to make the circular farms.

Just here to post a pic of my progress, If you look at the top left you can see part of a lake, that I'm working on:

Whats left?

You might want to look at the hong-kong or chicago maps for city inspiration. Generally you want to have some of the buildings, but no where near all of them.

Keep up the work!

I agree with Tigershark there; it is a tad too light (it brings out a yellow-green contrast on my screen). The color of the peaks of the mountains (or something around that) in your last picture might fit as a darker surface color.
