I replaced the initial water texture with a texture made by @Yanzl, also i replaced those "dust" palms with pines, also made by him, and oleanders.  

I don't wish to open another thread, so i want to make an announcement: The final version of de_aurelia is here.   Well, officially is final but we all know that some feedback will follow and then som

Good observation about the environmental storytelling.

If you are happy with the layout and willing to go all out on polish, first idea that comes to mind is to go for a “villa has been recently restored, owners/organisation is organising the inauguration party and Ts want to blow it up”, so it’s a good occasion to have some back rooms half painted, full of tools etc, and open areas very clean, some bunting/flags, a stage and loud speakers… that sort of thing  🤓

Hmm... you gave me some good ideas guys :D .I was thinking to put a big ivy and scaffoldings at site A instead of that hedge.  Party... i don't really know. I'm more into a palace/villa in restauration setting, to justify those freaking crates. These days i'm am obsessed with making a good ivy in 3dsmax. It's a phase, i know it will pass :P

maybe something like this

*Image goes here, but I deleted it to not stretch out the comment*

Give it some ladders, add some smaller props like buckets, tools, etc. This really goes a long way to making it a believable place. Also why are there scaffoldings there? Is there some reconstruction going on? Make that more visible, for example you can make it look that they're applying/reapplying the purple paint on the bricks right now or something like that.

My custom ivy. To obtain textures i collected some ivy leafs from my neighborhood and scanned them, being arranged in different random combinations a few times. Then to the HD pictures obtained i made an alpha mask, then i combined them in gimp to obtain a proper texture for the model. By using a scanner i obtained clear images without lightning issues or inequalities.

Looks great, just make sure to turn off self-shadowing and shadow casting off on the foliage, that way they won't cast weird shadows and the colors will be more vibrant.
