Christmas Village Template
Created by Hell_Master

Map Info:

This is a terrain template type of map that is a Christmas Village Template (the name says it all...) made for the special event, Christmas.

A map set in the great village of magic and wonders, the Christmas Village. Where elves, animals such as reindeers and Santa lies. This village is said to be the main place of Santa and his reindeers. Because of this, the village got many visits from tourists but they never saw Santa yet but maybe he will arrive at the day of Christmas!

Features:

The map features a terrain template set in Northrend Tilesets and world.

  • A decent terrain for everyone to use.
  • Santa inside the map

Some else stuff about map:

This map would not be possible without Sliph-M and Felipe Gormadoc's project, Christmas Quest. A very special thanks to their project which fully motivated me to make this for all of you guys out there. That is why this terrain is somehow base on their terrain.

  • Removed the unecessary Melee Initialization Trigger in it.

Version 1.2

  • Changed the building structure for the template to better fit it's theme

Author's notes:

I hope you have fun using this template and also hoping you might find use into it. Again, special thanks to Sliph-M and Felipe Gormadoc for the inspiration!

Also, you are free to add, remove or edit anything in the map and of course, this is a terrain template. It would lose it purpose as a terrain template if I restricted you from doing those, right?

    Orcnet: Supposedly, this map should be moderated 1 day before Christmas which I left by. Testing around the the total view of the map's ground work was given a fair taste of decorations. Should you give some dimensional look by adding heights or cliff levels that results the map with more space maximization and more map value. I'd still give it an acceptable rating, Merry Christmas.

    Seems a bit too flat. In the top picture it seems a little... bare. If you would fix these I'm sure it would be a definite improvement.

    I had a look at ur template and actually it got some flaws:
    - As Footman said, the terrain is flat
    - Also, there isn't a lot of tile variation! Just three: Dark Dirt, Snow and Ice. Why didn't u use Grass, Rocky Ice and especially Dirt for the paths?

    However, I noticed that the template has its good points like:
    - Good choice of models
    - The central part is magnificent, with the marvellous christmas tree and the tuskarr Santa Claus with his reindeers
    - Appropriate fog, sky and weather effect

    To conclude, I'll give a 3/5 Could be a lot better!
    Oh, I forgot to say that I VOTE FOR APPROVAL!

    I really cannot help the fact that the santa looks like a tuskarr.

    The updates have surely made the template better BUT:-
    THE OWLS ARE BIGGER THAN REINDEERS AND PEOPLE? :vw_wtf: :vw_wtf: :vw_wtf: Are they snow owls or GIANT OWLS?
    My rating will still be 3/5 but the true vote is 3.5/5 The map is also quite small but never mind!

    Well, the template is really nice, but you could make it better, adding steets with the cityscape round tile, make snow in some parts of the steets, use more raise and lower, and use smooth for don't look so artificial.

    my rate for now is 4/5 + rep

    A nice terrain template.

    (+)
    - Nice view with Santa.
    - Those deers.. are just cute.
    - Those flying things are cool.
    (-)
    - Terrain is flat according to screenshots.
    - Lack of tile variation in the screenshot.
    - Village is too generic to existing Northrend Terrain.
    - A little empty in terms of doodads, according to screenshots.
    (*)
    - Change Debode to Deolrin, new people might get confused.
    - Raise, lower, and smooth or plateau.
    - Don't put too much non-snow tiles in an area.

    Christmas Village Template Review
    Review by IamFootman061

    Good things:

    Models. The models fits perfectly for me.
    Tiles. The tile variations is good to me too. Especially the pathing ground.

    Fair things:

    Units. Some of your unit is too big and too small. The villager is small and the owl was too big.

    Bad things:

    Houses. The houses doesn't have any christmas decorations. It sucks for me. :(

    Suggestions:

    You need to put some christmas decorations to houses and in every places also.
    Balance the Scale of the units.

    Updated to v1.2 with the following changes

    • Changed the building structure to something different to better fit the theme.
    • Resized the Snow Owl's size and balanced it out hopefully.
    • Removed the Villagers because it only takes up space and makes the template much more occupied and restricted

    And, also, I am in search of snow themed doodads/destructibles/structures pack to improve this and that would fit the terrain's quality but specifically, a christmas-themed archway (maybe, a candy cane archway). If you have find some, please do link it. This goes without saying but +rep and you'll be in the Special Thanks sections.

    Good day!
