    As I have said one time already; Do NOT interperate lies about the rules.

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

    That is a direct quote from the main post, and that is the rule. It states that you cannot use imports from other sites than hive and wc3c, therefore Kobas will have to remove those imports in his final submission if he doesnt want his terrain to be disqualified.

    I will also change the "Map may" to "Map may only" to avoid any further misunderstandings.

    I've already asked this question about TheHelper and XGM, that's strange and dumb that people still say it's allowed :D

    Rules are rules. And I still don't know people keep using those models, only because "tey ar high res and stuff". Seriously, it's completely possible to make an excellent terrain whitout using XGM, WoW or WTF models.

    I'd use "Map must only". People make up their own theories about models and they are so naive yet serious, when replying, it's like they invented the rules or something.

    I mean look at that post:
    Who exactly told you that XGM is allowed?

    Uh, along with the server's connection problem, which I can't understand why anyone tries nothing at all, I will kill myself for the second time.

    How many times does this need to be said? Jeez, its stated in the last post and in the first post AND in keiji's previous post. I don't feel the need to state what they said so you figure it out..

    -Offtopic- don't post another time, cause your post count is so Leet :D

    You'll have to show the specific model and ask for permission.
    -I- read the rules.

    Oh, and you can only ask Keiji for permission, any other replies are not valid.

    *Off Topic* Lol Sorry :p

    Sigh that's a shame, cause I wanted to make a more modern terrain using a pack that is on TheHelper, and I am 90% certain it is not in UTM. :(


    EDIT: @Hero_Leif
    Aaah okay then, thanks :) I did read the rules, just not thoroughly.


    Keiji,

    Is it okay if I use this Model Pack?

    Yeah, it makes complete sense to not allow models from an actual affiliate site. =P (TheHelper)

    I think they just meant not any illegal (eg: WoW) models. I don't see why not to let them use those models, as long as they're open source. =\

    i think that anything on the helper is already on thw or wc3c but, don't believe me for sure here, helper is probably alright, not really known for its large amounts of rips

    edit: reading the first reply of that thread, i assume that pack is actually on wc3c

    If it is this one you are referring to, then it IS in wc3c. If not, then you have a great urban pack right there if you want to create a modern map. And Hero Lief, no, I have already specified what imports is allowed by only allowing models from hive and wc3c, that means that no other models will be approved. I also removed that little sentence from the main post, to get rid of the missunderstanding.

    No that is not the same pack. The one on TheHelper is much larger and with smaller more specific doodads.

    Thats a shame though :(

    Perhaps I could make something with that pack though, if I can find some stuff for the before shot.


    Also in the second shot can the cataclysm be in progress or does it have to be afterwards. I don't see why it would be a problem, but I thought it best to ask.

    So I was wondering... If I join this contest MUST I make two terrains or can I make it like here? http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1619596/Hive/terraining9banner.jpg

    My current idea is to make a nice spring looking terrain with flowers and butterflies on the one side and the harsh winter everything in ice on the other, both terrains would be on the same map.

    Dunno it's just my idea and if I'm allowed to make it so(If I'll join of course :p)

    I'm also wondering: Does the terrain have to be viewable in the Editor? Because I want to set up a few triggers for animations in order to get things look best if I manage to get a decent terrain.
