    thanks, the main reason I took high elves is because
    * their buildings simply looked better in this terrain
    * It's something else than the usual "ashenvale = night elfs sleeping near a tree of life" ... And you got to admit: if there are 27 participants, you'd rather see something original than 27 NE fortresses...

    You should upload your screenshots as JPEG. Most people will not download .TGA files just to see the screenshots.

    Get a program like Ifranveiw from the tools section, it can open TGAs and save them as Jpegs

    The last one has weird ground tile variation. All the others seem OK.

    Im not satisfied with the satyr camp yet, and the first one needs some more doodads too maybe... I think the satyr attack on the elven village is a bit messy atm, but i want the village to be in flames and the levitating dead body over the blue flame. Maybe i should clear out some trees and make the ground mroe even.. Anyway feel free to suggest some stuff :p

    Please don't use them as finals, they look really bad compared to the ones you posted before.
    The sky in the first one is a mess, the fog effect didn't turn out well, the hills in the second screen are too bluff and replace those Blizzard trees with custom trees.
    Forget the ground and concentrate on the upper part of the citadel, which looks great. :)

    Doompenguin, your first image is a bit weird and confuse.

    Kk I've worked on it a little more and Im done for today. Lemme know what you guys think.
    The stairs to the upper level are complete now, they spiral up that pillar to the bridge that leads to the top of the hill. I've also started replacing my blizzard trees with custom ones and im debating whether or not to add back in the clouds. (Pic 2 has the clouds in it but I took it before i added in the stairs and replaced most of the trees)
    Also, theres a spider in pic 1. Can you find him? :wink:

    Edit: Added another screenie of the finished 'Druids Keep' (Screenie 3)

    @doompenguin: You should take the blue fire out of the first pic and add some grassy dirt in the second one to blend your tiles a little better.

    Herio, the pics are looking really good, but I feel that they are just a tad bit unfinished. The first one looks fine except for the sideways-ish tree on the far left, but the second one is really barren on the far right side. Anyway, keep up the good work, and best of luck to everyone...
