very nice, Frank!  with some more tweaks this will be a winner!

Looking very good! So is the ultimate goal to add this in as a climate type/region in NVSeal's procedural planet system? Please say yes! ;D

My god... that would be cool!
I just need to tweak that texture a bit more...

FrankB

next step ahead...

I'm not crazy about the city. A small town would look better. The furrows look great!

you will laugh, but yesterday I made a mistake with combining a few functions and the fields indeed were overlayed by crop circle like structures. Not as sophisticated like the real ones, but I kept this idea in the back of my head for potential future use :)

beat me too it... I was going to suggest crop circles ;D

So you really are touched by alien intellegences. Now I understand the uncanny skill with Terragen 2. It all makes sense... LOL :o ;D

Don't forget to add some circular fields too  ;)

What is that silly place? ;D Why round shapes? I've never seen that before...

oh yes remember these fields on google earth !

Yes, Kansas and eastern Colorado have circular growing fields. This is because of the type of irrigation system they use. The irrigation unit pivots from the center. The water spraying part that extends from center is on wheels and goes around the entire perimeter wetting the crops.

Quite common here in Canada as well.  Just as Choronr said, it is for irrigation purposes.  I thought you might find it another challenge to build circular fields within your rectangular ones  ;D

The landscape should have large wind power turbines. It should be a true 'Green' landscape. ;D

oh thank you..., just what I need: another challenge before I nailed the other ones ;D

I find it quite ineffective to water fields in that circular manner. A lot of space between the circles is not used that way.

Anyway...
I need a nice a free farm model and maybe a tractor and haystacks. Anyone know where to find such models? they don't have to be too detailed, as this is for a high altitude shot. But textured would be nice.

Cheers;
