    Well, the colors are edited with something, you see that on the "Game View Settings". But well, terrain as terrain... But it's kinda hard to see anything with those bright colors. xO

    My guess is that its edited with the Negative tool. And it doesnt make it look good at all. Its just, really, irritating. The terrain itself isnt all that good either. Unless its meant to be a playable terrain, then it might be decent. But for Art, you should lift the camera, so that the horizon comes to view, and use more imported models, and less blizz models :p

    Well, okay, okay I cheated. Like Keiji I used that negative tool. But it looks so odd and same time new with that tool. Here are the real pictures. 100% playable.

    Playable terrain can be almost as good as non-playable terrain, if you just know how to work it out.

    Playable terrain = No lightning.
    (Unless you make use of my ultimate lightning technique. Moahaha.)

    On topic:

    Looks nice. I really wouldn't be annoyed by the terrain if I played that map.

    I used custom lightning in my map and it worked out nice, i dont see a reason why playable terrain shouldnt be able to handle lightning.

    I'm talking about HDR-like lightning which is quite hard to make. Of course it's possible to place lightning doodads in a map, but having them look as smooth and sexy as the light in a terrain screenshot from every angle should be very hard. : O
