    Please hear my plea!!! Somebody make an elven citadel terrain cliff to replace either Dalaran or Dalaran Ruins cliff. I think somebody should make this because we don't have it. We need this!! (Citadels are of course in Ashenvale) And please make it fit with Ashenvale tileset terrains.

    Thanks for all your efforts, guys.

    As for the replacing cliffs, that will not be done, at least, I'm against it. I pretend to use un-modified tilesets. Actually, I would participe too (would not be unfair if we had it on a poll to decide), but since I'm not that free anymore, I guess I'll sit and judge.

    And as for the start of the contest, it would be better to have some posts cleaned first (specially those at the very start of the topic). But that doesn't matter much. Anyway, we need the Ultimate Terraining Map, which demonsofdante is working on.

    I vote for NO on team work. Beacause people that arent teamworking will have disvantage of people in team work.

    WEU's 18 terrain tiles will be tolerated?

    I think it only allows 16. Still, yeah, WEU is avaible for download in the Tools section and there's nobody who doesn't find it unless that person doesn't really want to. So, yeah, I'll consider it.

    Well I'm actually iffy on the UTM right now. Since the map has been updated in the past few months or so (Linked by Ghenjis in the UTM thread) i'm not sure if DungeonM has ceased work on it. I do not want to go around modifying it willy nilly if he still plans to do it himself. I'm currently waiting on Ghenjis getting back to me with a PM from DungeonM.


    I will modify this in a day or two if I do not recieve word, simply for the sake of this contest if people are getting that impatient.

    In the meantime, if there are any doodad models that you feel would greatly benefit the contestants, PM me with links to their download page (And please make sure its a working link) and i may add them to the map

    But if a terrain does not replace an exicting one, how can it be used?

    I'll join, but how many screenshots do we need to do for each tileset?

    so... custom models are allowed and the use of WEU is allowed?

    In that case, I'm not joining...

    I take it we are allowed buildings and units? What tileset are we using first?

    Where do you need models if you only create custom terrain?

    I chose 2. At least 2 screenshots of your progress + the final screenshot. You can post more in different angles if you wish.

    Use of custom Models, we'll see with each tileset, and as for the WEU, yes, you may use up to 16 ground tiles using it. If you do not wish to have any other ground tiles, that's your call.

    Half of the question is not understandable, and the other half is totally mentioned in the first post.

    Damn. I don't think I'll be able to do 1337 terrain, but maybe...

    @Ratherion: Actually, it is over a year for the whole contest, not just one terrain. Otherwise, people would leave. :emote_grin:
