This Thread is for posting Inspirations for terrains.

for example "An Elven Village" would be an inspiration. Just don't be too specific and provide a whole list of details you want to be included,just let them do their thing and see what they come up with.

All i ask is that you don't spam or flame others terrain in this thread. You can just post an inspiration instead of a terrain if you want.If someone posts their terrain and gives a new inspiration, post your terrain anyway, so that we can comment on it.

This will be the Inspiration for the next person: An Elven Village

Are they small elves? The buildings look tiny. :p Good work though. The lighting one has weird lines in it. I'd try and fix that.

They're just elves, their buildings are magic and everything inside is huge :p
The lines are where one light crosses over another, only way to counter that is by making one big one, which would take out all highlights, so I just left it like that. Dunno how to fix it otherwise, except for sticking in a big doodad.

Nice work Belgarath. Both look nice but the one with lighting has strange lines in it, I can't wait until I get my new PC in two weeks so tha I can try that lighting technique.

Offspring, I think he meant a forest ON a mountain, not several trees around a hill. Remember to take your time, don't rush your terrains, they'll turn out much nicer.

Very nice void, one thing I notice with your terrains, you seem to find a tree model you like then you stick with that tree model for several terrains then you find another one and use that one.

Anyway, a new inspiration: An orc city or fortress, whichever you prefer.

Yes, right now I am loving that pine lol. Nice trunk model with roots and the leaves are just the right thickness.

Yeah I know the doodad name but I can't open the UTM so I have to extract all of the files using MPQ Master but I can't find an MDX in the imports section labeled as Light from Above. If you can find it for me i'd be very greatful. I think i'll pm dung and ask if he knows.

Man, I really need to get in on this action so here's that floating city you wanted (even though you changed it Void :) but I felt like doing this one instead.
Did it in about 45 mins.
Next inspiration: Canyons, deep canyons :)

'Bout time, I was gonna ask if you wanted to participate. Also, you can do any inspiration that was posted earlier.
About your terrain, I think nudl meant something like MadseNs floating city. The black doodad does ruin it.

@ Belgarath: We got accepted :)

Small Orc Base

I read earlier in this post about a "orc city or fortress" I made this, but it turned out more like an Orc Base, however i think its close enough.

This terrain is for an RPG im making. The story about the base is, that a group of orcs settled an area of ashenvale, becase of some reason that i have not made yet...haha but i think the base look pretty nice.

BTW...this is defenatly a WIP and suggestions are welcome
BTW...again...this terrain is 100% playable, the bridge is walkable, and so are the stairs.

Ohh and next inspiration...A secret (kinda hidden) troll jungle camp?

You were supposed to make a beach, but I guess doing an old one is okay.

Now the next one is a BEACH!
