    They have the definition of mountains, but on the map they are the size of small hills. In short, if you're trying to make them hills, make them less spiky and put some detail on them. If you're trying to make them mountains, well, your perspective is off and you should work on that.

    I never used high res doodads, so I can't say nothing...

    @Acyong, Wolfhelm: I will change the things, put more trees and fix the annoying allmighty floating rocks. Thanks for your suggestions!

    Frosty, you can join anytime, but you have to be like an "Teh Flash" to finish in time......

    So, another WIP, fixed the alien floating rocks, the other things I fix later... :ned:

    Because I'm using doodads scaled at 0.10 - 0.20... With this, I can put more things in it, whitout caring about the annoying fog.

    (I know that you can get rid of the fog by selecting "view entire map", but I like this way...)

    You can also get rid of it by holding down shift and pressing the down button.

    here HFR, ill give u some tips.

    Your Work lacks a certain depth to it. The Atmosphere ( which is yggdrasil and the sky and the moon ) are fairly decent.

    - Looking at the trees, they are to small in front of the camera view. Try and make the trees in the front Way larger and try and make it so that you are looking from the ground, not the air.

    - The Snow tiles on the hills clash with the envirnment. Try and either make it ALL snow, or no snow at all. Start out with just one even tile.

    - fix the hills toward the back, They appear to look artificial. Try and make the hills go straight acroos the picture, and be sure to not make them look round.IF you can, try and extend the Far Z, and place far off mountains behind yggdrasil, and lower those hills. This will allow the picture to have more depth.


    The Adivise i gave you may be a bit hard to foolloow, but try, and hopefully this helps you out. Cause im probably not going to have an entry (im too busy :p ive basically stopped all of my projects.)

    Why you won't gonna enter? You have an fairly good chance to win at least in third.

    And, man, thanks for the tips, I'll try to follw them, and, of course, my WIP's still has few details, and I can improve a lot. Thanks for your feedback!
