Cobblestone Wall or Hedges?

Prev1
Cobblestones! Looks more real, for some reason.

    Maybe break up some of the hedges ( which is the one I like better and will vote for) with some shrubs or a cobble stone zig zag path, just to add a bit of contrast. :D

    But I'm not really one to talk I'm not that good at the whole 3D thing. :lol:

    Why's there not an option for neither? uY4SE9x.gif

    I think the cobblewalls work better although is a tough decision :? One question would it look better if you took the top layer of cobble walls or hedges away so it doesnt look sunken or is that the effect you was after?

    I voted hedges but really, it doesn't matter. I just wish the cobblestones came in a color that better matched the mountain. I'm really helpful huh? :mrgreen:

    Cobblestone looks better, looks more Aztec and cool :) and as mwdalton said, more realistic.

    Ultimately you have to look at them all the time. Either looks good

    I'd vote for neither, sorry.

    There isn't enough green space and with the Mount smashed up against the hedges/cobblestones it ruins the effect. To create the illusion, there needs to be more green space so it doesn't look like those structures are taller than the grass. This results in making it look "sunken" on top.

    However, if your heart is set on these designs then I would reluctantly pick the cobblestones because there is a little more green space on that design than in the hedges one.

    Thanks very much for your honest feedback so far everyone. It's great to be able to see it from others' perspectives. It seems like Cobblestone Walls are winning just slightly. I voted for Cobblestone just so I could see the results, not realising there was a View Results link literally millimetres underneath the poll options. :lol:

    I've taken away the top row of walls and shifted the next row in an attempt to take away the sunken effect that they've given Mt. Carlmore as a few people have mentioned. This has proven to be quite difficult unfortunately. I don't think I can really avoid it. Here's what it looks like now:

    I guess I am committed to this type of design (sorry Lissa :)), as it is a mountain I'd like it to be a little more elevated than its surroundings.

    Haha you need not worry my good man! I was kind of doubting the hedges anyway and your advice helped. :D It's all for the greater good anyway hey? :mrgreen:

    The front looks much better, if you could somehow move the Mount away from the back more (while maintaining the same amount of space in the front) then it will dimish the look of the back walls being so tall.

    Or maybe put some trees to try and hide it (but not up against the walls otherwise it will just emphasize the height differences).

    It doesn't look as sunken anymore, good work.

    I've made the switch to mostly coblestones myself, I like the look better however they don't line up exactly right on the corners sometimes.

    I voted hedges which was winning 11 to 9. I cant do the 3d thing. Ive tried and failed miserably, I shall have to watch a tutorial I think. I'd like at least one in my town.
