Moonlight Temple

Submitted by Lexandritte
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
The map was made during the course of three months for the XGM-held terrain duel against oGre_ (whom I'm grateful for a number of things he done for it).

It's a great collection of bad and good examples of what should and what __very carefully__ should be included in you maps -- I was so distracted with the input of detail that I completely neglected the lag, which now cripples other machines. If your mother plate burned down - I warned you. Lesson №1 -- don't put 25k props in 64*64 map.

The terrain firstly demonstrates the wide variety of what can be done with Arcs (cityscape decorations) and how to achieve realistic waterfalls. On second plane, it's a great example of ever-eluding atmosphere and just a ground for advanced terrainers to think upon.

    Comment: Very pretty environment, really atmospheric and it does fit the title.
    However the map is really small and there are too many doodads crammed into it, making it lag terribly, thus making not usable for playable maps, but maybe for very short cinematics.

    You should add some screenshots. Description doesn't tell much.

    If it's a demonstration of terraining, you should put some screenshots of the best features of the map.

    For map 64x64 isn't good to have over 24.000 doodads!
    First of all your terrain can only be used in cinematic, but with 24k doodads it will have terrible lag.
    Also as MortAr- said stones are place bad (Some are not) but you can resize some of them and replece 10 with only 1, You used 2 many grass (9000 grass doodads) :sad:

    Terrain looks nice but can't be used as template!

    It's more of Terrain than Template. The only reason I posted it here was so that people who see the work in the gallery can also have a look around in here, maybe to pick a thing or two for themselves, and snitch some models, perhaps =)

    well, the tiny but mighty difference is, that the legendary terrain are only screens, but this is a whole map. you would understand my point of view if you can drive through this map without lags like me.

    dude - good terrain

    Dont let you get down - I love it - As far as I hate most templates, I must say - you did a great job here

    5/5 - no reason to give anything else

    Ive been also terraining much - but im more focused on playable terrain (meelemaps)
    But I think you showed me some cool techniques - its a good inspiration

    Lol, many of Legendary terrains suck to that map greatly, this work must be placed right there.
    The stones are placed rather natural, so if you don't like the placing, blame nature...
    That is a good example of rather professional terraining, certainly deserves a 5.
