What compelled you to create this project? Do you live in a cold weather area and needed a vacation?
I guess I never really ‘decided’ to create this project, it sort of just happened. Before I started work on it, I had always wanted to play through a tropical/desert climate in an Elder Scrolls game. Because I enjoy creating new environments and landscapes, I decided I might have a go at creating a few small tropical islands and deserts just for fun. However, I started to get a little excited about it, and I wanted to see results before I had even started. So, to satisfy the little part of me that just wanted to know what it would look like. I quickly made up a few desert textures and applied them to the tundra area. I then launched the game, turned the grass off and what I saw surprised me.
