Very great Vue scene! My only critique is directed at making more natural shorelines where land meets water such as along this river. Using a mixed material showing wet soil/sand along the river's edge would make a big difference, you could even just use flat, basic materials (like the "plastic" ones) at the stage where the terrain is bare so you can distinctly see the location of where one material starts and other ends when mixing materials (water-planes could also just be given a third, flat colour in the meanwhile so you can easily see where it ends :idea:) but once done mixing the materials on the terrain so one makes the wet edge along the coast and the other the main land, then it's a simple matter of replacing the plastic materials with realistic ones which are slightly different (the wet edge would be darker in colour, shinier in specular settings and maybe a bit reflective too) with two materials, you could even apply different Ecosystems to each, in case you ever want plants only on land and rocks near the edge etc, or maybe one type of plant in dry areas and another along the water's edge etc...

One last thing I often do along riversides and beaches is manually place a dozen or so rocks of varying sizes near the edge, some partially submerged, some on the ground but mainly along the water's edge, this will break up the hard line and make a more realistic riverside/beach in future :D

The riverside was all I could critique though, everything else looks too damn perfect! :wow:
