    I don't know how to change the mapsize, so I actually had to :)

    It's very easy and fast. Look at the top panel in WE and select Scenario and then Map Size and Camera Bounds.

    WOW! That's a little too much work for me... maybe if you had a best voice acting contest? JK don't want to sound like a jack ass here. Anyways, good luck gents, have fun working your asses off.

    @Rui: As pertaining to importing skins or not:

    My vote is no.

    The rules have been set forth already, and we as terrainers have plenty of resources from which to create our tilesets. Adding this additional element of skins to the competition would create bias in favor one terrainer or another, and so we should be limited to those resources already provided for us.

    I have just decided. I will allow you to use Skins as long as you attach them to your post BEFORE each tileset. The skins will then be attached to the first post for everyone to use.

    Very well. Good compromise.

    That means, whoever asked previously, that you will not be able to use any custom skins in this competition...

    Not on Ashenvale. But perhaps on further tilesets.

    Okay, this map is far from finished (EDIT: for example the tile variation on certain screens I did not plan to submit :p) but I really don't feel like continuing...

    Sorry for the overload on screenshots, but I felt like posting 'em :)
    If I have to go for "1" final screen, I'd take Screenshot 6.

    Map uploaded

    The map idea: After the destruction of the High Elves, a group of Blood elves rebelling against Kael have settled themselves in the large forest of Ashenvale. The village can be entered by entering the portal (screen 1), although it's magically protected against non-elfs.

    Very good work, amazing! However, they have a weird ground tile variation. The one on the lower right has only Lumpy Grass.

    EDIT: Good choice, screenshot 6 is just excellent. And yes submit the map if possible.

    reply (in advanced mode), and click on the "manage attachments" button at the additional options, then upload your screens and your map.

    Thanks. I wish to organize it better, but it's just that I have been so tired lately. If I go to bed before midnight, I take ages to get to sleep, and I have to wake up at 7 o'clock. I never get a good resting time. I'm needing holidays :p

    Here is an early WIP of the village. The actual dwellings are going to be inside the World Trees, plus a few ground based-structures will be added. I am going to elaborate more on the forest once the architectural part is complete.

    Whoah! Dark! You may want to post a screenie that is easier to see, as I still cannot distinguish half of what is there. Sounds like an interesting prospect, though, this terrain of yours. Good luck...

    Turn your brightness to 100% on your monitor - it will be perfectly visible.

    Ummm... ya, its not perfectly visible, but it is a bit easier to see. You may still want to post a brighter pic, but I suppose it is up to you...

    Not in the competition, but thought I'd post some opinions
    @Dalaran... I can easily see it

    Mushroom, looks nice so far, though a little like Eleandor's
    Eleandor, really good idea that was well executed, but the high elves bug me lol

    Hmmmm... maybe there's just something wrong with my screen. I set it to 100% brightness though and it's still rather dark. Oh well.

    @Mushroom: From what I can see, it is looking pretty good. Keep it up!
