    You don't mean Barrens tileset? First one in the competition is Ashenvale.

    You tell me !?! I used the tiny ULTIMATE TERRAINING MAP, as it's requested.
    So however I take a screenshot, they'll be the corners of the map.

    I just hope you won't see it when it's finished with trees and similiar tall things which are hiding the sky.

    Not really. The Ultimate Terraining Map is for you to use the resources which were imported, not exactly to terrain in a 32x32 map.

    So change the first thread, it's sounded to me like it's recommended. Some sort of block to prevent huge terrains... sounds weird ??

    Then never mind, well I start new, see you later these days.

    Don't have a ton of free time lately, but if it's not too late, I'd like to join.

    @Herio-San
    : your terrain is looking great. Keep up the good work

    Maybe, I have to re-make whole terrain (ARRG!)
    but I will probaly do that and enter 2 finals (that ok right?) because of multiple terrains.

    Entering 2 final screenshots of the same terrain is ok. However, submitting 2 finals of different terrains is NOT recommended.

    I have added Dalaran_Guard to the Participant List. Welcome aboard.

    Now that the Texturing Contest has finished, we might have some more people around here.

    Alright, I'll redo to a differing terrain and see which screenshot looks better.

    In response to Chaos's problem heres just a few things to know throughout the course of the contest.

    1. You can change the size of the map under Scenario.
    2. You can change the color and effect of the fog under Scenairo->Map Options
    3. You can change the tileset of the map completely under Advanced->Modify Tileset
    4. You can change the cut off distance of the sky box through Ctrl+scroll on the mouse
    5. Make sure You do not have any visible info boxes or selection circles when taking your screenshot.

    Does that mean you have to make a Ashenvale terrain?
