So! I took Kalin's tree down the memory lane to its outpost/village/town/city incarnations, and it has lost a bit of bulk around the middle in the process . (Sorry!) It's still about the same height as the original in its metropolis version, just a tad slimmer.
Making the city cores have definitely been an interesting experience. In the end they are a fusion of Kalin's and Heavenfalls' ideas as much (if not more) as my own. I can't rightly call them 'mine', but that's exactly the beauty of community project: they are better than what 'mine' would have been.
Image spam incoming!
WIP tile is pretty much the same as before, just added a planter for the tree.
Edit: Removed the cores bundle file, the gate in 4 and 5 was screwed up. Updated link in the following post.
