The green comes from a ghostly light. The city itself was supposed to be white like Minas thirith because it was build by men. I imagine it wouldn't by white anymore after sauron captured it. So I think if they'll add ghostly green lights it would be fine. You might want to make it a bit whiter so that the light reflects better though. ;)

As it has been captured by the dark forces of Sauron, we thought we'd make it not white, but a bit darker. We'll see about the light ;)

It is an amber hue due to it being dusk. There is a green aura that is only visible closer up and when it's darker atmospherically.

It was Minas TIrith and Minaras Morgul...
Osgiliath was the capital city and the two Minas where the forts of the city ;)

They don't recapture it, they raze it to the ground and burn the vale. As for the quest, you'll just have to wait and see ;) .

I thought they just burned the vale and razed the bridge, and they didn't touch the city... :P

Nope, they destroy the city. It is stated in the chapter called The Stewart and the King. Elessar (Aragorn) has Faramir build a new city at Emyn Arnen and live there as the prince of Ithilien. However, Minas Morgul he has razed to the ground as the vale was both poisonous and tainted from the long occupation by the Nazgul.

Grey would be better than brown. Even if its just a dark grey. It still beats brown.

Who said anything about brown?

Nuvendil Nov 29 2010 replied:

The walls of the city are grey. The "brownish" hue you are seeing is caused by the time of day (dusk) and the weather type ;)

As in all images available of the Morgul Vale, the trees are already dead but still present. You really want a completely barren landscape? I don't.

oh this looks amazing... shame about two things, the fact that it's daylight and the green light isn't there... would it be possible to sort of keep the weather constant night (it didn't rain there either) over mordor and minas morgul etc. until the ring is destroyed? (look at kvatch for ideas as the weather was constant rain until the oblivion gate was destroyed)
