    Looks like we have another good terrainer in the WarCraft III modding community of the Hive Workshop. :smile:

    They are all good, but the only one that I didn't like so much was the barrens terrain. I don't think the tiles were used all that well; for instance, the tile used for the cliffs. It looked terrible - well I have always hated that tile - especially when stretched like that. You probably should've used another tile for the cliffside instead. However, you certainly are good at terraining, but you still have quite a way to go before I can agree that you 'good enough'.

    I encourage you to keep terraining, as your work is nice and enjoyable to look at.

    Last terrain reminds me of one of MadseN's terrains. Looks pretty good though. :smile:

    My favorite is the Second. Looks like a mountain resort type of thing.

    At the quoted I quoted the file from FP (first post).

    I wanted to say that it'd be good if you add spikes with skulls ans corpses on them on the tops of the hill we can see on the background. Would be good :D

    Lol nice pictures, but I like the Sunset one alot. EXCEPT that horrible barren rock terrain really ruined it. :sad: (Add some rocks or something to it)

    Yeah I know it kinda blows, but I have deleted most of the terrain maps, so it's hard to update them :p

    My rate:
    Eyecandy: 9/10 (not many units)
    Detail: 9.5/10
    Originality: 7/10
    Fitting: 2/10 (this terrain to be used in some mission)
    Comment: your terrains have no space in them and may not be used in any warcraft mission. Your terrains are sweet like hell O.O .

    Really nice!
    Were most of the things you used when making the terrains already doodads etc in the game or did you import them?
    Are there any guides for making awesome terrains like these? :O

    I use UTM that has hundreds of imported stuff already in it (It's stickied at terraining forum) and yes there are many guides to make a good terrain.
