    Ahh damn, I know I used it somewhere, don't remember sorry.

    EDIT: Ah yes, I belive at the moment I was able to do a little trick with the camera and increase the general (black) fog density. But the shot at that moment was very short-ranged, so for your pic it may not work, becuase of the long view the farther parts would be completely colored instead of the light sources.

    Are you sure the picture should be darker? Do you still think I should add some fog light?

    EDIT: And I'm eagerly waiting for my rivals to post screenshots... ^^ We have so many participants that my guess is we will see same kind of pictures in the future of this contest unless we are really innovative.

    So, the contest already startetd; and when do we need to be finished? 30th of april? and well, on the already posted screenshot i saw buildings and units, but somewhere i read it should be just terrain; so what now? only terrain or terrain and units? or do we have the choice?

    €: i should commit suicide; checked now the first post again, sorry for this ^^ but the question with the units stays

    Well atm my terrain doesnt look good at all, i'd feel embarassed posting it here :emote_sleepy:

    I made sure not to use any blizzard cliffs, but only used raise tool to create mountains.

    About WEU - doesnt it ruin the competition if people use more than teh 8 ashenvale tiles? then it really isnt "ashenvale" anymore is it? :emote_scared:

    Anyway earlier i heard some stuff about you wanting to see the work be4 it was done, so you could be sure it wasnt a rip-off, but i mean from how early stages do i have to post it? :emote_laugh:

    @ Jaakko: Your terrain looked really nice btw, nice work :emote_clap:

    When you do you can surely get feedback, if you need help.
    I think it was something like at least 2 or 3 W.I.P shots before the final screenshot.
    Thanks. :)

    @HappyTauren
    Oh it looks nice. Nice waterfall. But wait, what does it matter what the size of the map is???

    You can just change it so it is lighter instead of darker that would work too.

    As for my map, I'm running WEU on a 98' laptop with Vista. It was built for NT, yea, enough said. I need to get a patch form Bnet? becuase the map is not opening, i'm getting the "map data invalid" error.

    What is NT? Does this mean WEU does not work with Vista or? :(

    NT stands for New Technology, it was made right after windows 95, like a windows 96 if you will. I belive it does work on vista by the way.

    Anyway I cannot open The Ultimate Terraining Map on WEU for some reason, I can open my other maps but that one seems to be imcomplete for me, I'll try dling it again.

    Not sure, I can open all the other maps, custom ones as well. Its just that one map that demonsofdante made: The Ultimate Terraining Map, that does not want to open.

    Maybe the map was corrupted on your computer through some Editor error. Try downloading it again, the file hasnt changed on the site.

    I really want to join this contest. I just dont think im going to have enough time to make a terrain for each tileset. Could I join and just create a terrain for a few of the tilesets?

    Yes it does, now it looks like an Ashenvale dawn all around the map, instead of just the sky. I especialy like the fog and light attachment to the faerie dragon hill.
