Water structures can be modern, futuristic, ancient or fantasy. You are free to draw inspiration from real life zones or fantasy ones but new things are encouraged to be portrayed.

    Alright I put myself as the assigned moderator and did some minor edits in the first post. The rest of the process is okay, no need to do a pre sign list, unless the contest is wildly too popular, so don't worry =P

    Other than that, we should just tag the ones commented/voted in the theme discussion thread so they can know this is happening:
    @Pyrogasm @Bernkastel @Astaroth Zion @Mythic etc

    About starting date: I'll officially start tomorrow the 15th, so people still have some hours to react. I'll do the other annoucements on Discord and the green notice once it officially starts.

    That's it!

    Well, i don't have any experience in the expert terraining, but, partly because ragnaros recommended me, and partly because I admire all this, I will try to join. I will be the noob that makes the others not look bad, in comparison, so thank me:)

    Considering I tanked my melee map contest bottom of the barrel twice, I think I won't be making them any soon :D

    But this has to be the strangest competition.
    Its just a screenshot?

    And the map itself isn't being judged, it doesn't even have to work, or you don't even submit a map?

    I'm in! I'll make something even if I don't have much time, as I like the weird concept.

    It sounds like "proof of concept" competition tbh.

    That's what terraining contests have always consisted of (non-playable maps), so it's not strange, but if by seeing it like this you've joined, better than others see with your eyes.

    1- this competition has a trayectory since 2007 was the first one.
    2- yes only one screenshot as final entry, there is no wip limit.

    Terraining Contest #19 - Aftermath
    if you see in this wip, I set a camara, and started using the doodads to "create" like play with lego, a lot of page up and page down with doodads,
    you can change the camara, and say, I would like other angle,

    you open the editor, alter the doodads you want to use, and start using them, to "create something", the only rule is to follow the theme wich is water structures, but the water structure can be whatever you like.
    you take screens with imprint page botton.

    3- no map, the screenshots wips are to proof what you are doing
    your final entry, a screenshot is reviewed as stated above in the judging criteria.

    4- I will add people to the list after the oficial launch.

    well I dont have that much experience neither, I participied in the 19 terraining contest the aftermath, and I had fun, is like play with lego parts, "create" something and well set a fog, there are clouds doodads to work a sky. , something far something near, you play with distances.

    I have something in mind, based on Europa (moon of Jupiter), and the possibility of life in it, buried under twenty kilometers of hardened ice.
    Would it be valid, then, for this "structure" to be a kind of mixture between scientific operational base and futuristic excavator, all set in science fiction, and located on the air, right on the water of Europe (it would be sustained on a of "tubes").

    Is it okay if I upload the terrain screenshot with enhanced graphics mod (RenderEdge)?

    I think, this mode can give a very big advantage.

    agree, there is a clear diference between the users that use it and users that dont use it.
    it should fall under this category.

    "Image editing tools may not be used to enhance the terrain (however you may use them to crop)."

    I see that mod was originaly realeased in november 2018, so it was never used in a terraining contest before.

    the terrain should be enhanced by skills, using the doodads, ligths doodads that stuff,



    I have to ask you to not use it.

    Unless @Naze comes and allow it. (I pm him to ask about that mod)


    if those tubes that support the entire structure are on the water so yes is a water structure, you can do like 4 big pillars in the water and build up high. you can use floating ice in the water, sounds cool.

    Being that these tubes, as well as the base of the structure, would be digging instruments, yes, they would be in the water.
