I love the mountain. I can see a cool adventure movie taking place here. Not very fond with the trees though. Not sure what is the problem. First I tough they should be smaller and way more dense... Then their very light vivid green is a bit sticking out from the scene imho.

Cool rocks but I agree about the trees

Yeah guys my thoughts eggs-aclkey...went too crazy on the Colour variation ...should be dialed way back. Will have a go at resizing down and mess with the variation aspect as well

Fixed a buncha stuff I wasn't happy with in concert with previous comments and here's the UPDATE, plus added a bush pop.
Took a fair bit longer for some reason though.

Thanks Atilla, the river btw is simply a Painter shader used to displace the river and then to also displace the water in the shader stack so I have a river running down hill.

I have been interested in this one.  Vortex warp on terrain. Maybe...  Not sure how you arrived with your results here with the vertical displacements...  Yeah - you got me thinking,,, Thanks, Bobby!

If you'd like to look it over I could send you the base .tgd minus textures and objects.

Thanks for the share, Ulco - and Bobby: feel free to post yours in File Sharing for all to have a look. 

Many times I take pieces from others' shares and stitch them together in a Frankenstein-ian kind of way.  It's kind of hit-and-miss because I don't really know what I'll get.
