Once I get the ole Plantation done and thicken up the tobacco rows it should look real cool

Excellent vision for scenery; and demonstration of modeling skills to accomplish gaming scenarios.

They look nice. Plantation and small farms always had part of their fields planted with edible products. So the farms would be self-sufficient.

Yes Rudy thats so true I made my cornfields and have goats pigs dairy cows and chickens also just haven't finished their sty coops corrals and a few horses. I still need my indigo crop which could be made using static grass clumps and a little dry brush of reddish purple since the tobacco and cotton crops weren't really the money makers in 1780.I do have some rice patties I made for my Vietnam stuff which was a staple crop in South Carolina I will use once I can verify how the planted the rice in that period
