Ashenvale Map Template

This bundle is marked as useful / simple. Simplicity is bliss, low effort and/or may contain minor bugs.
This is my first attempt at terraining. This map is an Ashenvale terrain template if you are going to use it give me credit for terrain. I don't expect this map to get a vary high rating since the only real challenge of making it was sitting on the couch for 5 1/2 hours. Constructive criticism is welcomed. I don't know how to upload screenies. A link or a comment on how to would be appreciated.
I placed a hero unit so that you can explore the map yourself.
UPDATE: I did the northern part of the map and i also worked on the eastern part.

Well honestly this map isn't something special!

I like how you placed tiles on ground and placed some doodads like shrubs near rocks etc etc!

But I also don't like how you created whole template...
Just nice tiles some blizzard cliffs and large number of trees!
No road or some path on ground! Use pathing blockers to create nice cliffs etc etc!
Few neutral units placed on ground are good but you still miss birds etc etc!
Well and this above was let say some basic stuff!

Now come let say advanced :D

I don't see any special effect doodad!
I don't see any figure created with some doodads! [simple example will be ice bridge created with few ice floe doodads]
No invisible platform doodads to create some awesome effect! [awesome stuff when you need custom created bridge, or some epic stuff in cinematic]
I don't see any lightning effect doodad!
No global effects, no light, no fog, no custom sky!
...


I don't know how to rate this so I will not :xxd:
But I want to attach few tutorials uploaded here on THW:

Well I attached links to few tut here on THW and to their Authors!
Some are easy some are for advanced users!

Some have little to do with terrain some much more!
Pls at least scroll down each one just to check pictures!

If you really want to learn how to terrain, check also other sites like
http://world-editor-tutorials.thehelper.net/
http://www.wc3c.net/
and others...

open maps, check terrain contest etc etc, check terrain board and people showcases, explore user albums, search Hive... You can always ask some user for help, join to Chat room sometimes (http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/apps.php?p=gochat)

:razz: 2 Much work to do right...
