Looks really nice.
Though it would be good if you could say what you told Mortified Potato in the description (about them all being the same). I too just thought you were lazy and used the same screenshots!

Hey, I have a problem: When using your realistic Boreal theme, all buldings built on a slope create those ugly, low-res textures on the elevated terrains below them:

Any tip on how to get rid of them?

This is sweat! First map theme I ever used and I love it! That said:

I hate to nitpick, but the moon is transperant, and It's causing the sky to have this wierd "white-out" effect.

Tied with Alps Dolomites for my all-time favorite map theme. Cheers!
