Make some fake grass around it, and place it on a plane… Put a blurry picture of a game store in the “world”… Maybe a few dice lying around outside the gate…

I would suggest Terragen. Its an excellent, free landscape generator. With a script, you can import your scene into Blender.

Nah, from this angle, it’d look grand as a tabletop wargame prop…

Yes, it definitely look a model. (This doesn’t mean it’s not very nice :wink: )

If you want it to feel BIG

must add bric texture

must use better tile roof texture

must add dirt, imperfection

must add something to scale with, so a terragen environment might do, but, since it is a top view
a fractally subdivided plane could do as well

Keep it up

if you don’t want to go the game borad way as everyone is suggesting… i’d say put in some trees! that’s always good.
after you get in a few trees put a carriage or something… maybe some ppl somehow.

then maybe a bird flying above it…

. then after that you could make a seperate version of it at night or something… put a little fog on the ground and in the air, with some torches.

ooh ooh ooh you can put a boat or something in the water!! that would definitely make it look like the place is being lived in and about!

GREAT!! now I want to make a castle like place! :stuck_out_tongue: lol

Nice work, can’t wait to see more of it!!
