    Hello, users of The Hive Workshop.

    Today, 7th April 2007, I am submitting this Terraining Challenge. Actually, it's more than one challenge! I have seen many terrains in our Terraining Forum and I think this contest will get more participants than it had at wc3search.


    The contest is over, terminated on 9-Feb-2008!


    I propose the following: each participant will design a terrain, however, I am going to ask for one of the 18 existing tilesets. At the end of each tileset, we will have a poll to decide what terrain you prefer. Please have in consideration the following when voting:
    • Originality
    • Doodad Placement
    • Elevation
    • Ground Texture Use
    • Fog/Weather/Effects

    NOTE: You must post at least 2 WIP (Work-in-Progress) images before the final screenshot, otherwise, your terrain will not count. You may have no more than 3 final submissions. You may NOT import new ground tiles.

    We will have a Tileset Master, and a Winning Participant.

    • The Winning Participant will be the one with the highest percentage at the end of the contest, more specifically, when all tilesets have been made. The final Winning Participant in the 1st place receives 50 reputation points. 25 for the second, and 10 for the third.
    • The Tileset Master will be the one with the highest percentage on the tileset. This means every tileset will have one Tileset Master. The Tileset Master is awarded with 5 reputation points.


    Deadline: The Lordaeron Fall Tileset has started, and can now post screenshots of the referred tileset ONLY. The deadline for this tileset is on the 1st January.


    You may only use the Ultimate Terraining Map, which is avaible at the end of this post. A deep thanks to DungeonM for creating such a helpful map for terrainers. Thanks also to demonsofdante, Ghenjis, and HappyTauren for completing it for this contest. No skins are accepted after a tileset has started. As such, you should always inform me (Rui) that you would like to use the skin in further tilesets, by posting in this thread. Remember to provide a link to the skin/model you want to use, or simply attach it to your post.
    After the Participants List, there is a list of material you may use for your terrains. Jump to Material List!

    I would participate - although I'd probably need a pm to notify me as I keep forgetting to check these threads. =P

    I remember you doing this contest over at wc3sear.ch and I always wanted to enter. . .=D

    Then I will need you guys to choose which Models should be able to be used so it will be fair to everyone. I guess HappyTauren's Pine Tree Modelpack is already approved for this?

    Thanks for joining, by the way =)

    I like the sound of this contest, I think I will move this to the main forum and make an announcement about it.

    And i'm in.

    And as for the models, why not just say people can only use models from the Ultimate Terraining Map? Because thats got models that can be used for pretty much every tileset, and no one will have to import anything into a map, they just make the size a bit bigger, change the tiles and start terraining.

    If we are to use imported resources, the models should be selected by The Hive administration and approved for use for everybody. Meaning, The Hive picks the models that the terrainers can use and they must be equally available to all who decide to join the contest. Any model that is not approved by The Hive cannot be used in a terraining showcase.

    I don't know how many screenshots will I ask for, or if I'll ask for the whole terrain, but we'll see. It all depends on how this turns out.

    I'm also thinking of an award. Perhaps the adminstradors would like to suggest something. What about a rep award for Tileset Masters (no icon) and a final rep + icon award to the Winner?

    Hehe. Now, I'll begin making the list of people who are joining. Afterwards, you people will decide whenever you should or not form teams.
