    You could perhaps add a small building there as the base and entrance of the tower.

    Looks pretty good, though I am saddened to find out that others know to use hidden models. I am using bridges just like that (minus the torches) in my entry....

    I suppose I'll join, I haven't entered a contest in ages. It's always fun, even when you lose.

    Hm. I have an important question I was thinking about while I was working on my terrain. Can the winner donate the +Rep and the Winner icon to another member? Because if I were to win, (not saying I will because my terrain isnt very creative) i'd like Deckboy to recieve the +Rep and Icon since he couldnt compete because of his need to look after his sick mother. Would that be alright Mushroom?

    There are a number of models in the blizzard archive that are not actually used in the game and cannot normally be accessed unless you know the paths for the objects. If I am not mistaken, you can get a list of all the hidden stuff either on this site or on wc3campaigns. Good stuff though....

    Project Serenity: 70% Complete

    Just an update on my Night Elf Fortress "Serenity" Im outta fresh ideas so im going to finish it tomorrow. Id say its about 70% done. I hafta add in some units still and some wildlife and some more buildings. Afterwards im going to add some triggers to the map for anyone who wants a realtime tour. Other than that id say its pretty close.
    ---One of the overlooks on Serenity. This Archer watches over the shrine entrance overlooking the swamp.

    ---The bay outside the entrance to Serenity

    ---The Second Courtyard of three courts. To infultrate Serenity an enemy must enter the bay. Bypass the outer, second and inner courts.

    Add some sort of stone wall/chunks by those gates. They look lonely.

    You don't need that bridge to be cool. Use the table.

    Nope. Im not using custom models, the bridge is already within WE. Its a hidden model. If you want to use it the path is Doodads\LordaeronSummer\Structures\BridgeLog\BridgeLog.mdl. Just create a new doodad in object editor and paste that path in. Im abiding by all the rules :D promise.

    Strange... i will try that now..

    EDIT - It doesnt work! you're cheating? .. u must use custom models because if i use it as normal doodad it doesnt load it says error load and when i use custom doodad it says nothing but just doesnt show the model ...

    Prove your not cheating..
