    :smile: Thanks Ham Ham, that means alot to me. Im glad to hear some of it has paid off :wink:. Although, for a terrainer of your talent, it shouldnt be difficult to beat it. If I remember correctly you have had some very nice terrains from the past. (Not to mention the Lava and Swamp tut, but that showed only a small fraction of your talent)

    Edit 4 DwarfZealot: You can get unlimited cliff height by downloading the MiscData.txt file and saving it to the following path:
    Program Files/WarcraftIII/UI/miscdata.txt.

    Ill add the file to this post.

    Edit: Rui, you might want to add this to the original post for anyone who doesnt already have it.

    Try using Ctrl + Page up and Ctrl + Page down to move doodads up and down, those unlevel cluttered doodads look pretty unappealing imo

    1) your contest submission MUST be in an unedited Ashenvale Tileset.
    2) I guess that will be fine, but it should fit the theme, and I have doubts with something like that fitting in Ashenvale, but...

    oh and if it's indoors, make sure you only use Blizzard models or the models in the Ultimate Terraining Map.

    Elven City

    This is my new elven city.
    Based on a terrain then I never had finished for a contet that never was aproved =/
    I remaked it using the same concepts of the older terrain, but with the great doodads of the ultimate terraining map.
    Sugestions, positive and negative coments are all wellcome.

    Although my reply is no official answer, I'm sure that these are the most basic rules which you should follow...
    Apparently you've done 2 "wrong" things:
    1) not basing your terrain off ashenvale
    2) using (AFAIK) models not in the ultimate map. If you wish to use custom models other than the ones in that map, you must ask so before the contest begins...

    Thank you, hope to see a 2nd try.
    Oh and Ham Ham, looks nice, but it reminds me a bit of...
    (my submission?)

    Nice Ham Ham. Reminds me alot of that fortress I did awhile back. The bright green is a little much though. You might want do use the dark green fog, itll look alot better. Also, the fountain in the first pic looks a little out of place.

    Fog more dark, and the fountain moved more to right.

    I awaited for the other contests to end, but with no avail it seems, since another ton of them fell down to the Active Contests.
