I added TrueSky plugin, which made a ton of difference.

Update - 13 Dec 2019

Changed the river material and added a particle emitter in the waterfalls (River Water Tool bt James Stone). Rocks now have a waterline using a very simple decal with glossiness, low roughness, a bit of tint and a mask. Fixed the moss on the rocks as well.

Updated the brick building, and added a secondary color on the master material via masking.
Added some vines on the building (From the Modular Seaside Town by Matima Studio)

The telescope has more grunge to it. Also, I added more light to the telescope dome.

Update - 6 Dec 2019

A telescope has been added to the scene. For the textures, I used a trim sheet.

The light was changed, and cloth simulation was added to the windmill.
