    Avator, of course not. It can be an in-game screenshot too. It's just some terrain you make and show it off without other party software. That's all; it can be anywhere, either the editor or the game itself. So yes, if someone has to add transparency to a model, he would need the same version of the model with greater transparency, which is against the rules, so he would have to set the transparency with triggers.

    Yes, the rules clearly states that you have to make two terrains, OR make one terrain of the pre-cataclysm, then change the terrain to make it post-cataclysm style, and the terrain idea you are talking about doesnt even answer to the theme, your idea is a contrast terrain.

    My idea is also ice related, but I hope it won't end up the same as Berzerker's terrain... It'll be a forest with some creatures where everything is thick frozen in a mere second. With a bunch of repeated work, I might be able to pull off a nice terrain that'll let people know exactly what happened when they see it.

    If your idea is too much like mine Berzerker: Screw you, I'm not giving up this 1!
    (just kidding on the screw you part xD)

    Yeah my idea was "froze in the matter of seconds" or something like that. Anyway, I'm not sure if I'll pull myself together to even start :/

    At the moment, I'm just making the forest scene before the event. When I got a decent scene made out of that, I can recreate it Ice style.

    Shame it's not paired, then it would be like 'Great minds think alike'.

    I asee you are using cameras to change your view. You dont have to do that!
    Just hold CTRL and your right mouse button at the same time while moving your mouse to change your angle.:)

    Huh? I'm into this contest!
    but my f****** print screen button is broken, so...
    I will attach the map.
    The map is 1.3 Mb. :thumbs_up:

    @L_Lawliet:
    That's a good terrain (Not the screenie, but the link).

    Teun, camera's are extra useful here. You simply go to a specific camera and you'll always have the exact same angle on the field as with other WIPs. You'll see the differenced much better that way.

    Using cameras is easy to switch on, if you want to see the area from two definite points. Also I think it would be better to post your final entry with terrains screened from the same point of view, which will be better with camera :)

    Be sure to add something in the water. Looks kind of plain, but the rest looks very nice.
