Credits:
Ogre_ - for original Refugee in Ruins resources
Blizzard - World of Warcraft resources
APproject - I grabbed the resources from his Iceborn map

SonofJay - For creating the terrain template

Credit is not mandatory but is appreciated as a sign of respect for the author.

I allow the use, edit and uploading to any site of this template as long as you'll
not take the authorship of the template.

Author's Notes
I actually like this one. The doodads I used from AP's map is just so gorgeous.

If people wants me to make an Arena template with this resources then I just might.

Just like my other template this template is created with limited doodads for
map's efficiency and flexibility of modification.

Disclaimer:

-I didn't put any pathing blockers because I believe that is something
that doesn't require a single skill of terraining and thus anyone can do it.
-I may use this template on a future project so don't rant on me if you use this and someday saw a map with the same terrain.
-I don't take request so I'm not gonna bother to people who will ask to change/add this and that.

    [​IMG] REVIEW
    Sonofjay's fourth template is something that players will rarely see with playable maps, it's not using regular tiles. Visually, it isn't amazing but it's clean looking and different. It definitely could be useful for a small AoS map or arena. See below for a more detailed explanation regarding the map's quality.
    [​IMG] FEEDBACK
    Usability:
    Players shouldn't be dissatisfied that there aren't any pathing blockers in the map. As stated in the description, it's easy to add them. Surprisingly, it's easier in this map as it has well defined boundary lines. Players should however, know that this template is a lot smaller than what Aeon of Strife maps usually are. Because of the size, there aren't many (or any) places to add creeps. Nevertheless, the map is definitely useful for newbies and veterans alike.​
    Visuals:
    There aren't a whole lot of tiny decorations everywhere, but from the medium to large decorations there are, they are placed well and non-obstructive to the eye. Some models look a little stretched out, but having a zoomed out camera will make the difference in making the 'terrain' look smooth. There also is a profound color scheme to keep the theme of the map consistent. The fog looks odd in this map, so it would be a good option for users to take fog of war off. ​
    Miscellaneous:
    It would be nice to add a version number to your templates.​

    I used JNGP but that should not cause any error opening the map.

    That's weird, I can open it just fine, both with JNGP and the normal editor. Maybe that download got corrupted.

    btw, what's with that?:)

    It freezes on loading for me. I tried to remove the process but it denied me access, I had to end it in the applications tab.

    I also tried opening it in both JNGP(5.0) and the normal WE - both crashed. It happens when it starts loading the first doodad.

    @Heinvers, lol. I don't know what is that xD I'll check the map later.

    @Others who have problems opening the map.

    Maybe try setting your graphics to High if me and Heinvers can open it then there must be a problem on your side.
