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!
The map features a terrain template set in Northrend Tilesets and world.
A decent terrain for everyone to use.

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.

Added some more tile variations in the terrain.
Added a little amount of doodads in the template
Added Snow Owl critter to make the terrain much more livelier.
Removed the unecessary Melee Initialization Trigger in it.
Changed the building structure for the template to better fit it's theme
Resized the owl. It is now much smaller.
Removed the Villagers because it makes the template much more occupied and also, restricts it as a terrain template type of map

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.
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!
The updates have surely made the template better BUT:-
THE OWLS ARE BIGGER THAN REINDEERS AND PEOPLE? 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.
- 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.
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.
The ice cube you suggested seems odd Shadow Fury. Please do not suggest Shadow Fury to mix high res models with cartoonish models. Anyway the new house skins are fitting better this theme imo. I see that the tile variation is a bit too messy(I'll skip the flat terrain comment because it would ruin the village), the post lanterns too large(too many of them also). The fog is good Plus that I would look for a better frozen fountain if I were you Hell_Master. The snow man jump?!? I would remove those owls, the terrain is already falling into a cinematic category! Anyway those fences too could have some snow on them. The pixies are a nice touch to the village btwI would give it a 3/5.
Take your time Hell Master. I'll check this if you update this template
