    Riotz, do forest trolls! Or jungle trolls. They're fine too. ^^

    Nope. I'm doing Tuskarrs, living in the tundra on snowy cliffs, huntin' mammoths.

    I was always more of a fan of Island Trolls.

    Thanks for the advice, but I will put some trees, grass... After I finish with buildings, I will turn this into a forest.

    What you need is the right "fog". Right now you use the basic black one - Check this tutorial (By my good friend) and scroll down to section 2A, then you'll find out how to change it. Good luck and I like the Golem-terrain idea :)

    Any way to make a unit appear dead in editor? I know you can do it in-game, but I'm not going through that trouble.

    Doodads don't even have anims.

    First wip... Super early one for that matter, started 45 minutes ago.

    first wip.png

    Non-nomadic tribe of Tuskarrs who use the natural mountains to block out the weather... I need some stuff with mammoth tusks to make their architecture more believable. Also, those sails attached to poles are windtraps to block the harsh down-wind from the mountain. I'll also add support beams to the top and bottom of the cliff base for preventing avalanches... Down below with be the mainstay of the civilization with a few areas for holding mammoths that have been captured alive.

    I need to add support beams, trees and a skybox. If anyone knows where I can get some mammoth tusk doodads lemme know, k? xD

    Make it a unit with 0 movespeed and no attacks, fill in the fields:

    Abilities - Locust, Invulnerability (Neutral)
    Required Animation Names - Death

    Also, I'm considering joining. Haven't opened WE in like 4 years, but who's counting. :p

    hold down ctrl and then roll the mousewheel down to extend the far z of the camera. apart from that, make the fog far z higher to stop it from shading them over, but I think you know that part. just place a cave dome if you want that or whateverzs


    oh
    apart from the elves/murlocs/dwarves (i hope they're dwarves in those mountains, looks badass) i still have yet to see obvious racial settlements. I'm not quite sure how yours can be a settlement at all, Oziris, but i guess you still have some space and all that. i would appreciate obvious races etc

    Deepholm is a settlement of the Elemental race, mostly earth elemental mobs. Look it up in WoWiki.

    Edit:
    alexandero6, you should zoom with your camera, why would you want to show us those ugly textures? And you don't need an in game picture, only from the editor.

    Another small update from me. :p
