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.

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.

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.​

Thanks for approving it although I don't fully agree with the review since you have that same comment by Hell_Master on my other templates concerning more details that simply contradicts my templates main purposes. Why add more when its already really good and the addition that you guys are asking can make modification of the template more complicated. I can say this because I obviously make terrains and not just stare at it.

I have made improvements on this template just after I uploaded this but I haven't updated the map yet. The current version that I have contains an improved base. I'll update this template along side the others to fix that Advance Data thingy and this
The fog looks odd in this map, so it would be a good option for users to take fog of war off.

I'll just turn if off.

It would be nice to add a version number to your templates.

I rather not do that since its just templates and updates to my templates will be rare and very little if I do update them.
