    I mean... Arcane Temple is more of a Dalaran theme. GL though.

    I suggest using the Gul'dan Runes on Totems, that would look wicked.

    And Herio-san, I suggest you add something like a valuable resouce for your camp, I mean the Tauren/anyone else would not have made a rondom camp anywhere, it has to have a oasis/goldmine/war outpost or something.

    Well heres a picture of the inside of the temple and a WIP of the outside, the outside looks horrible at the moment. Hopefully the inside will turn out the way i want it.

    That looks awesome demonsofdante. Reminds me of an ancient Greek amphitheater.

    First WIP of my barrens thingy

    It's gonna be a Canyon with a small orc tribe, some gnolls & a harpy fortress

    At the screen you can see the disbelieve of an orc that never believed in dragons, until he saw this...

    I was looking at the tilesets today, and I am worried a bit now... For example, take the Dalaran tileset.
    There's nothing wrong with making a terrain in Dalaran, but I fear that in (the next contest) Dalaran Ruins I won't be able to make a decent terrain, simply because dalaran and Dalaran ruins are basically the same... same goes for Black citadel and Outland and Village and Village fall. then I also realised that the Lordaeron's are actually boring terrains. Especially because there's already a better tileset for each Lordaeron tileset. Take Lodaeron Winter: everyone agrees that Northrend (or Icecrown glacier, but I think there are too many differences between those) is alot better. Village fall is a better version of Lordaeron fall (IMO...)

    What's your opinion on this?

    I also noticed that Barrens comes after Ashenvale. Is it on purpose or a coincidence? if it's on purpose, I'm worried that some tilesets that follow each others will be bad for my inspiration. For example if I just did a lordaeron winter tileset, I don't feel alot like making another winter map in Northrend. Same goes for Cityscape and Dalaran (which actually ressemble alot too).

    My suggestions (which you really don't have to take in account, but whatever): When for example the Cityscape contest starts, you should get the choice in picking Cityscape, Dalaran or Dalaran Ruins. This way the next contest won't be in a similar tileset, and the contest time will also be decreased (to 1 year instead of 1,5... by that time everyone already left wc for sc anyway, so...)

    Well we're going in alphabetical order which is why barrens if after ashenvale. Also, Rui stated that Outland/Black Citadel would be paired together, same i'm assuming for Dalaran and Dalaran Ruins. I think for the Lordaeron one we should be able to pick 2 seasons out of the three and do them. Rather than all 3.

    ...

    I've stated now that we won't be going by alphabetic order, due that some wait for the end of the poll, and others start as soon as the first contest ends, so... I'll pick a random tileset after Barrens.

    That's no good teamspirit. It's totally fine for me if you say you leave, but don't say everyone will leave. And besides there's no guarantee people will be playing SC2 after 1,5 years, maybe SC.

    SC servers will all be shut down by blizzard when SC 2 comes out. It's been announced. Anyway, before this turns out to a SC thread, I just wanna say that 1 year is more than enough for me for 1 (one) terrain challenge (even though it's split in multiple contests). Ofcourse not everyone will leave, but it's just a way of saying...

    I thought I read in SC2 site that SC will remain playable in B.net. Blizzard said this so have they changed their minds?

    Blizzard always change their mind. I bet they'll even release Diablo 3 with WoW as MMO before Warcraft IV, IF they ever release Wc4. All my efforts for Wc3 are going down the drain with this SC2 stuff. I understand SC2 was made earlier and logically should receive an update earlier, but I hope they don't leave Warcraft III dying either, it is so outdated and the engine is just so old. They could at least release an expansion, which is, of course, a dream.

    I think I actually may have some new inspiration for my barrens terrain and I think I may redo what I have (This would end up being my second revision lol).

    I believe were still going to do barrens but the next tileset will be random to prevent people from working on it early.

    Edit: WIP of my New Barrens Terrain
    Its got alot of work to go still. Im planning on having around 10-15 of these little floating-rock islands and then doing a terrain under them with holes in the ground. Some will be connected with rope bridges and poles. Others will have small sections of towns and sections of bases on them.

    Alright, let us start the Barrens tileset! Today is the 24th May, so the Barrens tileset will end on the 24th June! You can start working on your terrains and posting them!

    By the way, please keep attachments you made on this contest, since JPEG files don't take that much space.

    The first post has been edited! Congrat's Herio-San, you are the Ashenvale Tileset Master!
