    I would be an idiot not to join it, I thought a lot about this here, and I've got the same opinion as on the start of this(now huge) contest.

    I gonna get my school examination and my general qualification for university entrance first, and then I try to make it you as difficult as I can for you to win this contest, I'm pretty good terrainer, revived of my older projects I returned with my 2. place in the fortress challenge, I'm ready for this ! Fear, the Reign of Chaos has returned.

    Nice intro, hein ? (I'm waiting for the outland tileset, my specialty)

    Rui, count me in.

    In between, I wish with my message all participants good luck, especially Herio-san, my friend.

    Upload the map, WIP, the final screenshots and so on ?

    Did not see it in the first thread.

    Well I changed the colors for the warden and assasin (not in this WIP), but still need a bit more feedback, I replaced some of the trees but you can't really tell due to the way I light the scene (but I like the lighting)

    Well I hope only screenshot. Because that's what I signed for, not making a level.

    @Ratherion
    I think it looks good. Maybe a bit more plants or something along the river.

    Any feedback I give I have no idea do others agree. I think it's very hard to give feedback sometimes.

    @Killer Mushroom
    I like the shape of your terrain.

    Alright, more plants sounds good. I agree it is very hard to give feedback some times.

    I think I had already posted this in the first page. You should upload at least 1-2 screenshots of your progress before the final screenshot.

    Got that with the WIP's, but your entry of the current tileset, you should present only one screenshot, or is it possible to add more, in addition it's requested to add the map ? :emote_huh:

    So it's only one screenshot? Good, it will keep the competition simple and fair.

    You can have more than one terrain, although it's not really recommended.

    We can submit more than one final screenshot though right? Because my terrain is very large so it makes it difficult to get a good focal point.

    Sure you can. And let me make it clearer; at least 1-2 Screenshots before the FINAL.

    Code (Text):
     x + 1
    x is the number of screenshots you want to submit before the final. 1 corresponds to the final screenshot. You must have at least 1 screenshot before the final.

    Ah. Thx Rui. I made a thread in the terrain section for my WIP images. That way I dont spam this thread every two hours with a new screenshot lol. HS Terrains Link is in my sig also. I would reccommend that the other participants create a seperate thread to be sure they get more feedback (its very easy for some entries to get lost, especially in such a long contest). I will (of course) still post my final screenshot in this thread.

    I agree with Deckboy. Post your screenshots here. You are free to mention the contest, but do not take out the content.

    You both have the same elements in your pictures - citadel, waterfall and cliffs. So I would be lying if I'd say it didn't look a bit the same.

    lol. The sad thing is I just sat down, without drawing anything. And randomly decided to make a citadel with a waterfall cascading down onto it lol. Heres a shot of it.
