    This are some terraining i've done. I got addicted to WoW for a year but now im back and using world editor and trying to get better.




    The lake uses only blizzard models along with the forest picture (1st terrain).
    The tauren oasis was my 2nd terrain.


    The fireplace and aquarium are part of a murder at the mansion map im working on. (I always liked traps and passages etc. The only thing hindering me is room ideas. Any clue what would go in a basement 'sides a wine cellar and evil lab?)

    By the way, when the player pulls the lever, a jet of flame shoots out, killing the unit (was very fun to make)



    EDIT: Moved all of the previous pictures up to this post and added around 8 new pictures of the map (still on hold).

    Like i said, purely blizzard doodads. I removed all hte colors from the normal waterfall, leaving only the spray. Then w/ some carefully placed rocks i covered up the black water so only white showed. If you look closely you can see what im talking about. All about perspective :-D


    I actually started the map 2 years ago, but i shelved it when a friend got me addicted to WoW, but ive started again after cancelling my account. Sadly some of the triggers dont work now and i never even finished the terraining. Im trying to make it more immersive by adding items and such.
    ---Examples would include:
    Random keys spawning that are used to open up larger areas of the house. A map that hints at passages.
    A candle to increase your visibility.
    Trying to do a booze item that gives a 50% chance to avoid any damage for 15 sec (No luck so far).
    And possibly an item that lets you teleport between rooms through the use of paintings.
    I also have a working elevator (No real biggie but i think its a nice touch up to normal games)---
    Sadly it wont be revolutionary, its largely for me and some friends.

    The map has been using only models from the Ultimate Terraining Map (Which i think someone should put up here for all the new terrainers) however i saw the house models posted up by xXm0rpH3usXx and it almost made me want to start over completely due to their sheer beauty and how well they would work in my map.

    Enough rambling hehe, thanks for the comments guys :)

    Lol, i will try that waterfall "trick"

    Sounds great, perhaps u should open a thread about ur map in the Map Development forum, and attached ur test map, im sure u will get feedback, comments, and someone who can help u with the improvment of the map.

    It's a very nice piece of work. About the waterfall, I thought you used a custom doodad =P maybe you should post a tutorial about it, if you would like to spread that skill, of course =D

    Yeah i might. Im at least going to finish the terraining and patching. I have like 4 rooms left, including a spider cave and a backyard at least to finish.

    Here are a few screenshots i just took showing the foyer, upstairs, master bedroom and secret tunnel, starting room, one of the hallways, the conservatory, the empty pool and the balcony

    EDIT: Moved the pictures to main post

    not so much a trick as something i happened upon when i got sick of blizzards boring and tacky doodads. The main thing you need to know is just how to use objects to cover sections you dont want to show and just show what you want. Id have to say thats my best terrain so far, due mainly to how the waterfall was set up.

    I particularily like the new first one. The arches being diagnol looks really cool,a nd especially so since the fountain is lined up between the two. Great job!
