    I don't like the new ones. Honestly, I think you should stick to high-quality experimentals and take more time because the output is definitely better, and is the difference between a good terrainer and an expert. I find that applies to me too, if I spend time on my works they come out brilliant.

    Well, atleast I make my screenshots just for fun.
    I don´t care if someone think they´re "brilliant", or not, if I like them ( surely it´s nice, if people think they´re brilliant, but at first I make the screens for my own :p ).

    But I would´nt start wasting too much time to create really "brilliant" screens ( like the robot ) anymore. 16 Hours ( more or less ) for each screen I´ll made sounds rather high and so far the quality of my screens ( the most needed 2-3 hours to create ) seems to be enough for the most people to call me "brilliant", a "terraining good" etc.
    I think there´s no necessity to increase the number of hours I work on my screens. :O

    Lol, One very very very good one once in a while is awesome enough (such as the robot) but well, these are cool too!

    You get more rep for things like the robot. If you're into all that bs.

    Anyways, I'm an obsessive perfectionist so I guess my point of view is to spend however long it takes to make it omgwtfbbq awesome =)

    I´m probably an even bigger perfectionist as you, but unfornately I can´t spend 5 or more hours for each "normal" ( = doesn´t belong to a project, but it´s just for fun or for a contest ) screen, because of my rpg-project and other stuff like my rl.
    Soon I´ll open a terrain showcase with circa 30 screens of my current rpg-map - hopefully they will be "perfect" enough for you, Void. :p

    Maybe you should make some kind of a singleplayer map with such beautifull terrain (if it doesn't take too much space multi-player could be allowed, or just lan XD) would be awesome!

    He's actually made 12 posts since I made my terrain gallery =3

    He must be inspired by competition.

    In fact I disliked the Hive-Community in the beginning.
    Don´t know why.

    But you guys have a really active terrain-community with alot of good terrainers and nearly each day a new piece of work is going to be published.
    Unfornately the german mapping-community, which is still active in general, lacks some activity by releasing and discussing screenshots, the skills of the terrainers and so on.

    Thats the main reasons why I tried to increase my activity @ hive in the last days.
    Besides my english-skill, which is just moderate yet, needs some practice. ;D

    Glad to see we've pulled you over to the dark side.

    It's true, we have one of the most active terraining communities. Of all the forums here, the most friendly is the terrain. And one of the most active.

    Ah, hello X.e.r.e.X.

    I love the way that robot is made of doodads only, (I can't even get a doodad to come loose from the ground, let alone go into the exact position needed to make a little part of the robot)
