    Hi,

    Posted on 12th Jan 2019

    Im on my first terrain with the basics in World Editor. Any feedback I will accept to improve my skills.
    It was hard for me to make it for the first time, took about 3 hours to make only 40x40 size of the terrain which shown below

    I se...I found out that the original tilesets are hard to make combination. So I need to try to make few sets and get used to it first :(

    If I may, I respectfully disagree. I thought the use of felwood trees with the outland/Black Citadel tileset was quite interesting. I think these terrains are quite nice, at least for a total beginner. One thing I would suggest is to use the height tool more, particularly to disguise the horizon a bit more, maybe in conjunction with terrain fog. Keep at it, and don't be afraid to try out new or unusal things, it might not always work, but sometimes it will. Good work :)

    Thank you for your advice :) Yea at first I was thought that it is very nice when making the terrain, that's why I posted it up here :(. But back then, when I reopen and see....it felt awkward and mismatched. Kinda ruined on the environment. So...I just discontinue with it and came up with a new one yesterday, still in WIP with Sunken Ruin tileset. Much more better.

    Thank you for your suggestion, Alright, I will try to look at it. :)

    Was created this terrain on 15th Jan 2019. Hope that I have improvement.
    I quite like the sky and the terrain I had created :)

    yes,definitely have improved.Keep at it,you're definitely getting better.Just some really 'sharp' raised points in the terrain,if i recall correctly its from the noise tool.Good example is in the 2nd one,in front of the crab
    I do like the lighting especially

    Thank you very much. Yea, Im still improving this terrain and trying to import all the external textures inside to make it more beautiful.
