Something like this :

It's a minor concern since the map is still great; just don't make so many round mountains if you need to save up some polygons because it looks VERY weird, when you know something about geology.

My favourite areas and props are those with the ruins and old buildings (the bridge is great). I really hope we'll se more of that in the future, in the featured episodes!

It's an alien planet, who knows how the geology works there. I had figured the potatoes had more been pushed out of the surrounding rock. No, it's not the same as what we know. But that was the point.
