    NO teams, and once again I will say this:

    If we are to use imported resources, the models should be selected by The Hive administration and approved for use for everybody. Meaning, The Hive picks the models that the terrainers can use and they must be equally available to all who decide to join the contest. Any model that is not approved by The Hive cannot be used in a terraining showcase.

    I don't think I'll be in the competition BUT
    I agree with Bob that for the imported model issue you all use The Ultimate Terraining Map

    I vote no, if people are teamed up, and they are both pros, then us newbs will have no chance, so it really isn't fair. Unless we get a even amount of newbs, and pros. Then you can put a newb and a pro together. But for now, I vote no.

    Lolz... I guess... I'm in, but I'm not 100% sure if I'll get the terrain in in-time... :emote_neutral:

    As for the teams, I vote no, same reason as Sacrimo suggested, I'm a newb also... :emote_smile:

    My decision for the entry is still pending, this contest still has a lot of desicions to make on what to do but it does seem interesting, so I dunno what to do... :emote_innocent:

    2 seconds later...

    I'm in! lolz :emote_grin:

    I'll participate to the greatest extent I can, i may not be able to make hte deadline for some tilesets but i'll surely try.


    By the way, i vote No on teams. This sort of thing is to showcase individual talent.

    sure ill help out HT. Just tell me what you need. Last i checked there were some very basic grass models (and if there arent they can be found among the hidden doodads) If there are any others you may have to link zem to me some how.

    Sidenote: I jacked up something with a couple of the tree models a while back and cant seem to find them. I might replace them with your tree models HT. However i may not include all of them, just the more commonly used ones, to reduce space.

    What the Ultimate Terraining Map needs is more outland models, ice like terrain models (i think), and some other stuff... it mainly seems to focus on barrens, in structures that is (i think)

    well about half of those models are already in the Ultimate terraining map. Some of them just dont look all that great in my opinion or are unneeded due to the many present options in the map. There are a few i like i particular and i will get about to updating the map with them tomorrow.


    I'll probably hold off on loading (or sending to Rui, whichever) an updated version for the contest for a couple days so poeple can submit some models they think would come in handy throughout the contest.
