    Currently I am working on terraining an elven city. This will be a city inspired on a picture I found on this forum with some changes. It's currently going pretty well however I lack a few doodads for it which I can't find on hive.
    I added the picture of the thing I'm trying to create and 3 other pictures from what I've made already.

    Edit:
    Added 2 more pictures from how it's looking right now.

    Make a sticky thread in this forum telling everything you need. It may help you out.

    The first picture is great. Make that one in Warcraft & it will be Epic.

    lol, 1st one's from atlantica.

    2nd and third ones are EPIC. 4th and 5th are very nice. but... are there support columns? how could the city just "stand" there?

    Good point, but I'm still working on it ofc.
    I had the plan to add 'upside down' Sunken temple rocks under it to make it look like it's floating. Maybe with some special effects and some random floating rocks around the city.
    I also used some pillars as 'torches' with green special effects above them since it wouldn't be very wise to use fire in a tree village.:p

    Wow, awesome.
    Great idea. But what are those green glowing tower like things on the 4th picture?

    Thanks:)

    Those are "Torches". Because the city is built in a tree you can't expect torches with real fire on it. So I made up this; pillars with some sort of a green glowing rune on it that enlightens the area.

    Did you make it yourself?
    Or did you import it?

    But Torch... isnt really elvish. Even in ""s
    Better use something like... Elven Light.

    It's a pillar from Ultimate Terraining map with 2 special effects above it. The Tranquility buff and the Rejuvenation buff.

    Yeah well I just used the word torch there, but in the ORPG it won't even get a name. It's just a normal part of the city.
