Ah ok...

I think the town could use some torches/lanternposts.

But don't you think the other things I suggested would be an improvement? If so, why not work on that?

hi

I like it at all :) and it reminds me of a documentation about the countrymen of Romania which I saw a few months ago. All additional ideas I can give is what I'm able to remember ;)
  • They live closely with the nature (no electrics / only power of nature)
  • They build huge straw hills (1-2x size of a man) by stamping down the straw around a wooden stick.
  • They live together with sheep’s and other animals. So they need a barn and maybe an "open-air" place where the can get food (straw & water)
  • The people are very religious. So something like a "Mana-Church" would fit in the environment.
  • They use water wheels to flour the corn. I know the Village "Shimris" is planned in the middle of "Jirt" but maybe we can re-plan it and connect it to a river. Alternative: a windmill?
I hope this short list is helpful enough :)

Anyone feel like making some sheep or cow "npc's"?

some concept art about this would be useful. Or at least some kind of religious symbol.

I think we should avoid real-world animals. Maybe something that resembles it... but I'd say as less direct real-world copies as possible.

As far as I can remember it was a small quite simple chapel (maybe twice as long as a normal house) with a small steeple + bell. something like that:
http://www.walsermuseum.at/Walserweg/Ta ... a-Hilf.htm
and http://images.google.at/images?q=kapelle

Symbol?: I dont know, but we should not use an existing symbols in a fantasy game. At all I believe using religion in a game is a bit difficult. I rater prefer an organisation as described in the wiki:
http://wiki.themanaworld.org/index.php/Organisations
The Church of the Elder Gods? Magic Academy? The Druids?

so... we will have a wooden village. My question:
Will this village have a square? if yes, it (square) can contain fountain, statues, benches, stands etc. (or my favourite gilotine :D )
also i suggest using flat stones for sidewalks (pavement), not just "dirt" which is common in woodland... just for inspiration crush :)

edit: and some improvement for houses: they should have some herbs or crops drying in the sun outside the house or simply hanged under the roof...

edit no.2: interior :there should be some kind of trophies hanging on walls (horns, skulls, teeth, eyes, tails 8) )

The plants look nice, but i think the ground should have more of a row structure, if you know what I mean.

Also the plants are arranged in such a way that the human eye will see diagonal rows instead of horisontal ones. Assuming the latter is what you intended them to be.

the diagonal rows are intentionally. i don't want to orientate everything at the grid when possible.
