    Patience, fellow terrainers... patience!
    Sure it takes a long ass time to do all the pathing blockers and details to the terrain, but in the end it is worth it. It's the process of becoming a good terrainer. First few steps are: Patience, skill, and creativity. Get those three down and you're already on the road of glory. :grin:

    Really the biggest problem for me is just that I usually change a lot, and Im already somewhat getting close to my doodad limit. If those two werent problems, I wouldnt have much problem. Details and the rest of it never bother me, its my favorite part. Dropping pathing blockers just annoys the hell out of me when I *know* there is going to be some major revamp of it like 2 months later.

    Ah well... Thanks anyway :p

    There is a program called Grimore or something like that that can disable the doodad limit. I recommend you get it if you really need it.

    Does it replace world editor or will it bug my current maps? Or is it like miscdata, and will just change that without interfering?

    "[Death

    [Death]'s Showcase
    [Death] is another very talented terrainer and probably one of the best. His terrain is usually flawless and it is recommended that you study his terrain thoroughly."

    Shouldn't you maybe fix that slight error? Other than that, +rep!

    Using my new powers I updated this with Voids showcase. Just wanted to test some stuff, and I figured this could use an update since demon is gone.

    Make a folder called UI in your warcraft folder. Then put the misc data in there.

    And famouspker's. And yours. And frostwhisper's. And a whole lot more, but I believe the creator of this thread is inactive. :p

    Ah, and maybe mine and belgarath's tutorials should be added as well.

    What, 'Belgarath's Showcases - these are his 6 showcases D:'
    Gilles can edit it (as he proved it up there). Which tutorials are you referring to? Path by the Sea and Lighting?
