    That looks fckin awesome mate!
    I do however wonder if it will actually be acceptable as desert, as it is more of a castle/fortress.
    Anyway, this looks really good! Are those all standard wc3 doodads?

    I know, i'm a bit worried about that, but acceptable or not I'm going to use this in my other map anyway so it isn't a complete waste.

    Yeah, I edited some of the models and took some from the UTM but most of the ones I used are the default models. Thanks.

    This one is amazing. I have so much respect for people who can make common WC3 doodads look interesting again!
     
  4. If you mean edited like opening in a model editor and edited, that's not allowed.

    @PROXY: thanks, but I don't know what will I change, the ice cliff or the rock? I don't know where to find fitting cliffs around.

    Since I'm enrolling for the next school semester of mine, it'll be a slow work for now. Here's the north part of the map, I'm gonna need another cliff to replace the rock if it doesn't look fitting.

    Why? I picked a blizzard model, edited it a bit in the model editor then imported it. Isn't it just like using custom models? Or is creating custom models specifically for the map, not allowed?

    E:
    ....I don't see a rule like that though...

    Is requesting model edits not allowed too?

    These outline the rules pretty well, I know that if the edits are very small, then they
    may be accepted, but I'll leave that for fladdermasken to decide. But the general rule
    of thumb is that you are not allowed to tailor models specifically to fit your contest
    submission. We had some problems in the past regarding this.

    I think I'll participate in this one, interesting entries so far.
     
  10. As Keiji already points out, nothing is allowed.
    Neither requesting it nor doing it yourself.

    The reason why is that users abused it in the past, using tricks to spice up their terrain with an unusal method.
    Trust me, the terraining contests would be quite different when resource creation and edits were allowed.

    Here's what I got for now, going to hit the bed now probably. It doesn't resemble a desert yet, but you know, I had to start somewhere. :p

    Cool entry Oziris, and shit it's nice to see you around again :)

    Just keep in mind that it needs to be a desert, it shouldn't be too floral.

    It's a bummer, but with my current progress, even if my edits were accepted I didn't think i'll be able to make it to the deadline, so it's fine I guess.

    Anyway, here's the progress I made this weekend. Hopefully, i'll be able to replace the edits later.

    That city will be surrounded by a deep ravine, maybe with a river in it. Further out will be the desert.
    I'll work on the environment last sine they don't require much detailed attention.

    @Siscon Onii-san

    Really well made. Just a suggestion, instead of an ordinary river give it a try for a transparent tile and make a bottomless canyon around it, add some fog in the depth, would looks badass and much better than a river.
     
  17. @Siscon Onii-san
    It would be a shame, but if you cannot make it to the deadline,
    what do you think about finishing it and uploading it to the official map section,
    considering the suggestions APproject gave you in the post above ?

    I got really pissed off yesterday after my pc crashed and blue screen, sh*t! My entry map can't be open anymore and got downed. After watching Independence Day 3 hours later, I got motivated to retry my entry again.

    I have a question, will terrain tiles be used even if it's not in the Skin section?

    Oh the blue screen... damn that's bad. Well nice that you got working on it again though. I think it is okay to use custom tiles that aren't from the site as long as you give the link to where you found them. Good luck with it!
