    SoJ's Terrain Templates


    About

    *drum rolls*Tired of seeing your awesome map having such shitty terrain?
    Its already 2014 yet you still make terrain like its 2003?
    Worry no more as I present to you my terrain templates!
    *applause*
    *dramatic music here*
    *fanboys screaming "I <3 u SOJ!"*



    The Real About

    I decided to make thread for this templates so that more modders who
    needs quality terrain can see this. More info about the templates on their
    original thread.

    Q:Why not just put it in a pack?
    A:packs rarely get any attention which is a contradiction to the point
    of making this templates.

    I see these few doodads turned out to be even more useful for you than I thought. :) Looks great, considering an amount of doodads you managed to push the best from it. My favorite is the first one, last one is cool as well, very ulduarish-icebornish, hehe.
    True that, people should keep up with innovation, it is really painful to see old school terrains still being appreciated when something 10 times better can be done at this point.

    Yup, there are still some stuffs on Iceborn that I think I can use for more template designs. :)

    Same xD the quality really dropped on the second and third template so I have to refresh things up so I ripped those awesome stuffs from my favorite terrain part of your Iceborn. xD

    *cheers* but I think the main reason why they're still sticking to old school terrain is that it takes time to improve one's terraining skills. Just in my experience I think I made almost a hundred of terrain practicing maps.

    Anyway, its cool to receive feedback from you. :D I'm thinking of using some stuffs from your Seth's Reign since I'm itching for some Egyptian tomb terrain.

    For that reason you did it quickly and in high quality setup of doodads. Anyone could come up with at least something when the right tools are given, but new guys would do it in much greater time and lower quality, yet still it would look better than old school cliff-based terrain. In my opinion a fear to try something you never tried is to blame here, most of those guys are afraid of something new and their irrational part of brain gives hundreds of excuses to stay and not move on. That's probably the reason I never tried Jass, I just run away from it, it looks scary, so same thing here with me, hehe.

    Seth's Reign doesn't really have much to offer, some basics perhaps, I would suggest you going for my cinematic contest entry, it has a bunch of doodads ripped from WoW Uldum by me. Looking forward to it. :)

    Well yeah, hehe, welp the point of my templates is to save those bastards anyway, they can even use this to try learning. :D

    Hmmm, I don't wanna check it out this late cuz I might start terraining and forget to sleep. I actually really like Seth's Reign's terrain and the resources you used since it is really creative but again I like working with gorgeous resources in my terrain so I'll probably opt with your stuffs in your cinematic. XD

    Says the guy who dropped an awesome scenic terrain on his first try(I can't find the terrain but it is there somewhere).

    You deleted it in your album you bastard. The one that is too purple-ish when you first showcased it. It has some flaws at that time but it was still too awesome for your first showcase. Or am I drunk?

    Let's remove all the terraining tutorial and just point all the newbs here.[​IMG]

    Arrgh. Don't know if I should finish this. I have this neat idea but I don't really like how I made it.

    What do you guys think?

    Lovely stuff overall!

    Sadly I don't make those kinds of maps, else I would likely have given it a shot during my next school break. (Christmas!)

    Looks pretty good, just add a ton of small details and it will be perfect. :)

    I think that is do-able but will be pretty awkward. xD
