    I'd like to see a rich cityscape terrain. I think i'll wait for the complete game to do mine, the big detailed in terrain city. Just throwing ideas or seeing if someone shares, I love the railway and how you connect it. This is just a test of placing stuff, not some effort.

    My mini-terrain work, with a small rendered cinematic, showcasing the ease of bringing ideas full-sail and how camera work can be maintained at high-level: CLICK ME

    And the rendered cinematic:

    That lava terrain looks amazing + very very smooth rendering. Looks fantastic. I love the fluidity of the new terrain editor, mixing textures is incredibly easy and fun. However, I dislike the limit of 8 tiles per map; makes the terrain variation quite limiting.

    Also, does anybody know how to rotate doodads without needing to double click the doodad and typing in the angle?

    Here are some screens of terrain I made quickly. Feedback is welcome.

    First select the doodad, and then, while holding CTRL, try using LMB (Left Mouse Button) outside of selection ring. It'll quickly catch on (did so for me).

    Out of what you've presented, I like the third screenshot the most. Though a bit overcrowded with Doodads, it still has a more zoom-look approach than other screenshots: the places that where made detailed seem distant, you can't really appreciate them in such way.

    Don't forget to use Lightning Editor - it adds a whole new level to terrain forming and can set proper mood next to used ambience and music tracks.

    Hes referring to the Light editor, which allows you to change the lighting of certain tilesets and stuff. Haven't used it enough to really know what its capable of, though.

    Does anyone know how to make the sky appear? Or I suppose if there is even any sky at all.

    There are triggers to add in skies. I'm guessing the models haven't been properly implemented or something.

    So are you saying that you can only have them with triggers (Meaning in game), or just that they aren't really available at all yet.


    Either way, that is unfortunate :(, I don't really want to post my terrains without sky. :p

    Some quick terrain I made to get a hang of what could be achieved.

    You can get the mapfile at http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4794753/Terrain.SC2Map
    It includes a small cinematic in which you fly through the map while the tileset lightning change.

    Btw, here is an early shot of the same map in which I learned that even if the water plane idea is great. atm each of them are too damn big! In the end it turned out more about adjusting my terrain to the waterplane rather than how I wanted it from start :/

    I ran into that same problem with the water. Hopefully there will be a solution eventually.

    I made this tonight:

    For some reason, i can't seem to get my hands on patch 9. I try running both "blizzard downloader" and "blizzard updater", but they both say there's nothing to download/update.

    Can someone send me the patch file?
    (supposedly found in the starcraft beta/updates folder)
