    How about for these special matches we make them mini terraining challenges such as the fortress terrain contest or a dungeon terrain contest? As in theres some sort of theme involved.


    I think the special ones should be also be open to those not signed up in the participants list. It gives creative motivation and would help keep this contest alive. Cause odds are a lot of people did not join because they dont think they will be terraining the entire year.

    Hmm sounds good, so every month there is the main contest terrain from the list (this one is ashenvale) and there is also a secondary terrain you could make following a special theme that is open to all participants. Try and not make it too complicated, but it sounds fine.

    Since April is only 30 days, and we don't know if it'll work out, I will ask only a single terrain to Ashenvale. If we notice delays or something on this, I will exclude the idea.

    EDIT: The first post has been edited.

    Oh boohoo. I don't mean to be rude here but I politely suggest you be quite.

    If you're good at something you're doing, then you deserve to excel in it. The same goes for competition entries. If your entry is really good and it's quality surpasses all other entries, then it deserves to win. Your entry can't be held back because some one worser then you begins to cry because they're entry is much worser than the better.

    It's not really a competition if you don't have.. Well, competition.

    I SUPPORT GROUPS.

    I suggest for those who didn't understand the first post to read it again.

    As for groups, as I've said, we can always make one of those special challenges a group-challenge. There can be two types of those team-matches, though. You can have a separated-team-match, where each member of the team will do a terrain and in the submission, their percentages will be divided by 2 (the number can change. If there are 3 people on that team, it will be divided by 3). The result will then be added to each user of the competition.
    As for single-terrain-team-challenges, members of a group will make a single terrain, helping each-other.

    Any questions, ask.

    Can I know the reason why you're not joining? Yours and others' presence is important.

    Yes, I have two questions.

    1) Can I use any models I want, or do I need to use the map pack?
    2) Can I send for the Ashenvale month a screen I had almost finished before this contest even began? If I can I would still improve it though...

    I don't think it will be allowed. I haven't seen all the content of the Ultimate Terraining Map, but if it doesn't include the TableNoLegs model, you may use it. If possible, attach the TableNoLegs model here.

    You should post 2-3 screenshots of your progress. We don't want ripped-off terrains, and even with this system we can't be 100% certain.


    By the way, I have changed the Deadline. The contest has officially began. Start posting screenshots of your progress, people!

    Removed the blue fire and added a little bit more detail. I think it looks better now.

    O dang thats top-notch, I wanted to use a lake... O well I'll use it in a different theme. Exellent job it looks great.

    I suggest cleaning up the light sources a bit, the sky is light grey, but everything else is darker, exept the lake which is moonlight.... wisps and lanterns are very bright.... I don't know you could make it flow a bit better I think, maybe add some dark fog effects to the brighter sources and brighten the darker ones with lighter fog. Just a suggestion, very good work.
