Arthias will tell a deep, complex, and rich story of Humanity's survival
in a future full of political corruption, corporate greed, and religious fanaticism.
Arthias: Prologue tells the personal story of one man's personal struggle

Yes, I am.
After spending so much time working on textures, I wanted to actually use Sandbox2 to make a map. I've also wanted to do some Sci-Fi for a long time now. It's the perfect setting to make some really amazing scenery that is rare or non-existent on Earth. So, if I make your jaw drop with this map, I've succeeded. I think you will be convinced by the first pictures. And I should have some pictures up soon, the NanoSuit is more or less complete. It's just the technical issues of putting the entire package together and finishing up the utility to work it.

I've played around with the idea. Especially bioluminescent plants.
Edit: Sorry, I forgot my photobucket is broken. Links are fixed now.
Red Flowers and Purple Glowing Ferns
I'd like to work these kinds of things into this map.

Thanks everyone! I'm glad you like the idea.
I usually go for a darker blue water, but I purposely made the water here bright and green-ish. It's all part of the color scheme. It should be Earth-like, but not a replica of Earth. So I'm using some really light sand, and bright water with a more teal-ish color instead of blue. All to give it a more unique look.
Btw. Those picture links above are fixed.
Anybody know a good sound for a waterfall like this? The biggest waterfall sound still sounds too small.
