Ethas: Embrace of Destiny is a modification for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim being developed by Justin Hardin and Elijah Houck, the team that brought you the mod Alton, Il. for Fallout 3. In Embrace of Destiny, you will explore the lands of Arelia and Virardan, two countries currently at war with each other. Your role starts you out as one of the five famous Captains of the Arelian Army. Choices will be made, and sides will be chosen. There is only one question that remains: will you become the hero or the villain?

Try to vary the flora a bit regarding the colouration. Especially the texture of the leaves looks like you have always used the same one. The result is a very generic appearance which was a problem in Oblivion too.
Variation will make the look of the area more lively.

This is one small area of Ethas, so believe me, it gets a looot more varied than this. A different area of Ethas, the Heartland (which we previously posted a screenshot of, but that area has since been overhauled), is full of trees with beautiful reds, yellows, and oranges.

Also, take a look at the Hearthlake shot. Three different leaf textures in that shot all with varying greens, with more to come in different areas as we get new trees.
