    Good news anyone. Map made by garsh and me got approved so I'm gonna reterrain it so you gonna see some new stuff-

    Name of the place is Cursed Castle of Braves.

    Story:-
    Once there was a castle what was known from it's brave soldiers...
    No one could claim the castle because of its strong walls and its perfect position. The Castle of Braves is surronded by sea and forest full of bloodthirsty wolves.
    And this undefeatable stronghold was commanded by wise and skillful leader who was comparing magic and raw power to protect the castle... for thousand years there wasn't any problems to keep castle in own of right owners.

    But then came... the traitor... named as Athar'razn... He was living in the castle as arch mage for nearly twenty years... but when his preparations were completed. He opened portal into Darkness in silence of night...
    At this night... Death God Deg'orus himself came out from the portal of Darkness and cursed the Castle of Braves and its soldiers
    with most horrifying curse... curse what will tear flesh from soldiers and make them slaves of the Death God forever!
    Castle fell into eternal darkness of night...

    Behind of the castles walls, army of the darkness will grow and plan the reign of the Undead...
    Gods have sent souls of most powerful warriors to stop this madness and face the Death God himself...
    Path is dangerous and hard... so choose wisely... or you will be slave too... forever...

    The desert is kinda cool, but sand dunes would never be that steep naturally. Sand dunes also don't have perfectly rounded tops, they spike up sort of like a knife edge.

    Example:

    Void, you of all should know how hard it is to make desert dunes look perfect with the world editor, if you're going to complain about it, I challange you to make a better looking desert.

    It's on.

    EDIT: a little bit I did in 10 minutes. It's not perfect, but it could be with more work. Just use the size 1 brush.

    Because I don't want to. Our (Garsh and me) own textures and they make our terrains pretty unique so I don't wanna share 'em.

    Like the models in the UTM are shared?
    Your terrains are epic, yes, but without those models...

    Catch my drift?

    Yes it's your choice, but it's not like your making money off it as long as people give you credit why not share them? D:

    You know how an illusionist will never explain nor elucidate his/her tricks to his/her audience? That's why, simple as that.

    Neither would a magician be as successful without his/her tools, for that matter.

    You share your secrets, you take away the suspense.
    Wouldn't be much excitement if everyone knew exactly how that darn rabbit suddenly appeared inside the magician's hat, now would it?

    Wouldn't be that many good looking maps out if it weren't for the UTM...
    There wouldn't be an abundance of good magicians if the secrets weren't passed on.
    Imagine every single model/skin etc on the hive was kept to themselves by the maker because 'it made their work look better'.
    This site would be dead, period (assuming it even started).
    So yeah.

    Think about it!
    Anyway I wasn't trying to start an argument just give some food for thought, you don't like it? Fine. I'm not going to cry over it. I don't mod war3 that much anyway =/

    Well, if you want to consider the extremes, what if everyone shared everything with eachother so everything looked absolutely the same?

    Since neither cases are to prefer, perhaps it's good to compromise.
    Which of course indicates that some do share their work with others, and some don't.

    These two are among the ones that don't.
    Oh don't worry, I'm just voicing my oppinion in the question at hand.

    Okay, now we are really getting good start at remaking our map, so I uploaded some pics to first post.

    Places what you can see in pictures 6-10 are made by Garsh so a lot credits goes to him.
    We are going to reskin a lot of stuff ( Tiles and handful of doodads. ) before releasing new pics ( atleast I hope so )

    I hope you enjoy pics :)
