    Terrain Mini-Contest #4
    Build me a dream castle...

    IF YOU DON'T POST YOUR ENTRY IN THIS THREAD IT WILL NOT BE COUNTED!

    THEME:
    With this mini-contest, I'm going to take a different approach to things. The theme itself is pretty simple: Build the most aesthetically-pleasing castle you can imagine. The way this is done, however, is a bit different from usual terrain contests. You must provide THREE screenshots of your terrain: One from the outside, some distance away, showing the whole castle at the best angle you can find, one from the inside, showing one of the rooms, and one from somewhere close to the main entrance. You may use different special effects for each screenshot, but otherwise nothing can change. You may also provide more than 3 screenshots, but the three I listed are required.

    DEADLINE:
    EDIT: 30th May

    REWARD:
    +5-10 rep to the winner, depending on how high they score in the judging.

    Sounds sexy, someone better flood their castle with a dazzling spam of holy light!

    Can it be like a church, in the form of a castle?

    And the "whatever imports you want" thing still counts? If so, hell I'm in. But if we can only use the UTM then I'm not. And how does one really notice if the creator of the terrain simply didnt build the "room" some place else on the map and not INSIDE the castle? Or doesnt that matter at all?

    You can use whatever models you want. The room can be wherever, but if you make it actually in the castle, that would be totally awesome.

    @Corexx: Well I'd rather you didn't use the hi-res stuff, but you can. I'd like it if you used other models though simply because there isn't really a lot to build with in the hi-res pack and I feel like if people used it they would just use a premade building. I hope you won't.
