    LAYDK, well, would you use these methods in basic terrains? i don't think so. Maybe some of them are a bit easy and basic, yes, like rolling shores and such, but the other things are only for advanced terrains. I just want to explain everything step by step so there won't be any hows and whys. ;)
    And to say for some other people. the alpha tile and Misc Data are attached at the bottom of the tutorials where you can download them. (the alpha tile is under the name Outland Abyss.blp)

    As of Patch 1.30, is there any way to edit the MiscData.txt file to have steep cliffs? Simply creating a new UI file does not work anymore.

    EDIT : Found a solution. Try to make this folder instead : war3.mpq\UI\miscdata.txt

    How do I make so I can raise/lower indefinitely? There is no UI folder in my warcraft 3 directory. Only: Data, x86, and x86_64.

    Make the directory yourself. It goes in
    Code (Text):
    Warcraft III\war3.mpq\UI\MiscData.txt
