    So that you actually have a screenshot of the destruction's force into a series? Hm, make a movie :p
    Kidding, I don't think that 3 terrains is fair enough versus 2 terrains (just a single before & after), because you add more drifts to your submission and you spice it up much enough, to stop calling it even from that point.

    What if you did two terrains, but took multiple shots from different angles?

    So now we have two different opinions here :D:D
    Now Keji has to say something, I assume!



    That's not allowed because of the rule of only one submission!
    (look above)

    Didn't avator say it's allowed? Someone else said it wasn't.

    We'll need Keiji's final say on this, though.

    M0rbid, it IS 1 submission. Just multiple screenshots.

    To clarify this: This is a terrain contest, not a screenshot of a terrain contest. That means that 1 submission is 1 terrain about the contest's theme. Any amount of screenshots may be made. Take a look at the previous terraining contests and you'll see they took multiple screenshots as well.

    Since this theme is sort of a split theme (1 before, 1 after), you may take as many screenshots as you want as long as there's at least 1 before and 1 after the cataclysm.


    @Wanarax:
    Contest are actually a very good way to improve your skills at something. You'll be trying to push your limits and at the end, you'll see how others did something and why. So if you want to improve, a contest is never a bad idea if you're devoted.

    Ah, okay, I didn't know this, but then only screenshots from "two" maps, one before and one after?
    Or would be allowed one before, one after, and one after after?!

    It's multiple screenshots in only one map. Both before and after must be made in 1 map. I don't quite fully understand what you mean with "after after" though.

    I mean showing more than two levels of cataclysm, for example: forest - desert - ocean...


    EDIT: btw, it's time for a first very early WiP.
    It's very early and I just started working, so please don't be too harsh! :) comments are appreciated!

    Cataclysm terrain? sounds cool, i'll give it a try.
    I only have one question: How hard should the Cataclysm change the landscape? is it still ok if u just could imagine, that both screenshot belong together cause u just have one point (eg. a mountain in the background which is nearly not to see) that is similiar in both screenshots?

    Now then Avator, I would like it if you dont go about and give out wrong information >.>

    The rules clearly state that one is to submit two screenshots, to submit more than two is a matter that needs to be discussed.

    And now I am REALLY getting tired of these questions; there is no limit to how much or how little it should be changed, as long as there is a significant change, a noticable one, in other words.

    AzurotL: The riverflow looks unnatural. It's way too blocky. I assume you're going to fill those empty spaces, so I'll just leave it with the river comment.

    I wasn't really going for the "natural" look in the canals, i was hoping to make them look more man-made then natural.

    If it is in the UTM or on this site or Wc3c. So no need to get a model approved if its not from these sources, because you won't be allowed to use it.

    "Map may be based on the Ultimate Terraining Map. Or any other models taken from either Hiveworkshop or Wc3 Campaigns register."
