    Very nice indeed

    Just a question, whether or not Esgaroth is included into Third Age, would you plan on tweaking it based upon the version in The Hobbit? I'll imagine it'll look similar - it's always going to be a city on water built with wooden buildings, but it'll be nice to see it anyway.

    Is that official in any way? I've never seen that before, but it looks very unnatural...

    And yes I know, this is in a world with dragons and elves and mythical powers, but when you start having perfectly triangular shaped islands in a perfect triangular group, it just starts to look wrong.

    Not to mention the AI would absolutely love that....

    Mine has no lag what so ever and my system isn't exactly amazing. Have you got the patch installed which changes the water back to normal ?

    As far as one's observation goes, you can spot it's not natural
    It was an estuary of Anduin- and then the Numenorean had some serious fun with cutting apart the landscape....
    The 'left' is the main flow, and the middle island is cut from the 'right' island with canal all over the place.
    I saw a similar painting of Pelargir with the triangular 'island' in the middle.

    The makers could always shrink down the city and make it better.

    It is borderline feasible, Pelargir is on an estuary, so the land is likely made from sand, which can be cultivated rather easily in comparison to other areas, and thus could be shaped according to how the architects want it (see dubai as a real-life example), though this is admittedly Middle earth, and even the Numenoreans were not as technologically advanced as us.

    They were able to build indestructable walls-_-
    Don't ask me how though, how does one form a wall of undestroyable rock
    Seems kinda hard to get the straight walls we see if you can't break parts of it.

    Also, the Pelargir-structure doesn't seem that hard to make, humanity has created much more astounding things in a way more primitive state then the Numenoreans
