    In the Oakwood Forest ORPG players will experience many different landscapes.
    Players can select between 3 starting area's that will have their own questlines that lead into different places.

    Here you can see the terrain.

    The pictures you see range from 1.5 years ago till now. The most recent pictures are at the bottom.

    Yep true,
    That's why I reterrained some parts of the terrain. Per example that undead area. The screenshots that are still here are the places I didn't change.

    I don't just mindless spam bushes lol. I just like this extra amount of shrubs, it looks better I think. I want the terrain to look like a terrain in the terrainers section would look like. So a playable "terrain" instead of just something that fits "a game" much more.

    Yeah could work on some extra screenshots if I had more terrain. Just came back from vacation so I will start working on it again. I'm currenlty making the Undead/Dark Elf starting area and finishing the human/elf/dwarf starting area.

    Thanks for the rep:D

    Spamming shrubs doesnt look good in any way possible. But many of you're ideas here are very good :)

    The terrain is great 5/5, but can you add some normal in-game pictures to where we can judge what we see in the game.

    3 small pictures of me playing 3 different classes. Forgot to equip items in the test and 2 of the 3 heroes didn't have the special bar (the sage (jaina model) did). And to still be able to reveal things later on I decided to hide the minimap and hide the spells.
    Anyways a little gameplay preview.

    (the 5th one is a pretty new one. Currently working on that area so if you look around it might look a bit empty:p)

    Gee you're a nice guy!

    Constructive critism if you don't like it. Else just don't say it because it doesn't look that nice.:thumbs_down:

    Gee...

    kk critizim, hm...

    1st. Camera ruins the gameplay, quick actions and pvp (in case if theres any..) are completely waste of time, because you have difficulties to react and aim your spells. I havent tested your camera, but all other 3rd cameras fail, so why not this one too.
    2nd. I dunno how to say this, but you are trying to make "too good" terrains. Expecially the library/cave one. Its a cool idea and so on, but its just too messy and you can see "the randomness".
    3nd. Well I dont know much about your project, but I havent seen anything special yet... Its "just another (O)RPG" for me.

    Well pvp isnt supposed to be easy. And if all players have the same difficulties then it's balanced anyway. And about the "too good" terrains. I tried to make battle area's and believe it or not nothing I did was random I positioned everything myself and angled it how I wanted. Guess I succeeded in making it look like a real area where a battle is going on because war aint about placing barricades in a nice line to look fancy. The 3rd thing well, that's an opinion much people have. All I can say is that you should see it when it's done.;-)

    I recommend that you remove that Inquisitor icon you've taken from ToB, you've used it without a permit for the redeemer.

    Oh yeah good point. I implemented it to try it out but forgot to ask permission for it. I first wanted to see if I really needed it and because of the fact there aren't many betters I think I do. So writing erwtenpeller a pm now.

    I gotta say that you've done some really nice playable terrain over there, IMO. Hope it's not taking too much memory, though.

    The 3rd person camera.. well, I hope you're not going for the easiest way there, as the majority does. It's possible to make a really nice one with i.e. smooth movements. Oh, and a self-adjusting one depending on the environment would be more or less important too, to prevent the loss of proper sight.. or at least make it manually adjustable with the arrow keys, something like that ;)
