    yeah thats the main problem..
    the first picture is pretty good.
    the second one needs more trees
    and the third the cliffs just throw it off.

    Horridly ugly tree model. Use a custom one!

    Blizzard cliffs are a taboo around here. Use them at your own discretion.

    Not bad terrain, could use work though. The base is ugly, but the small creek waterfall thing is nice.

    Take a look at castle sige in my signature. I did the terrain for it, and I think it's pretty good. It supports very large amries. The key is to use trees that do not obstruct the view. Use lots of grass and shrubs to make it look nice. You can walk through grass, so it does not alter the game play.

    It doesn't look very good, that tree model is absolutely horrible looking, use a custom one, and try to stay away from blizz cliffs, raise the land yourself.
