I had to put myself times to my concept and started with Windows.
What I need are 3 continents, of which only one has been started so far, the other 2 are unfinished (they doesent exist tbh).
My point is great continents, so that one as a player does not get bored at the same time because sometimes in other games you have crossed a half continent with only 3 steps.

Then I started with the vegetation
(one of the most important things) to give the game something more beautify.
I mainly focused on DX11 shaders to get the highest quality.
Camera effectsare equally important, antialiasing, deep blur, bloom, etc
Here are two pictures for a comparison:
And last but not least
a gameplay video and some ingame screens :)
