    I never said models from UTM are the same as using stuff from Warcraft itself. All Im saying is, people should more standart models. Or the models similar to standart models.
    One of the reasons why I like johanessr's terrains, is that he uses standart models and models that look close to standarts.

    I was just asking because you didn't make yourself clear. And I respect your decision but as you know, I have a different opinion.

    Don't bug the guy. It's his style and everyone should have one, imports or not.

    @Alagremm, Using the Warcraft models was maybe "IN" 7 years ago, but come on, if you want something good you can't expect it from ugly models that were only meant for a real time strategy game.

    Stop pissing and moaning about imports already, you really just inspire my ranchor. If I literally plucked a nerve every time this debate was needlessly invoked I'd have to adapt jellyfish anatomy.
    And I don't want that, I'm perfectly comfortable with bipedalism. - irritation aside, imports or not, it's a matter of preference. Doesn't play any significant role in how good a terrainer you are. Denotes two distinctive styles altogether, so don't think you'll score any sentimental points by "remaining true" to either one.


    Point being, if you really can't see past such an imsy wimsy detail, you should consider not dwelling in this section - had I the authority you'd be tailored every banishment in the book if you brought the matter up on more than occasion.


    EDIT: And there was fladdermasken, casually irritated enough not to notice the replies on the tenth page...

    Just putting my two cents in. Not all blizzard default WE models are fugly some just need new textures.

    Also here is my latest WIP I hope I will finish it in time, maybe a extension is in order?

    Just jumping in to say that I do not want anyone to continue on that discussion regarding imports and rips in here, because everything has been said and this is a contest, not a discussion regarding how to terrain.
    If you want to give feedback, do it the proper way.

    @L2Love: Some tilevariation or rocks please, because right now, the snow is just tooo much. For example under trees there is nearly always a bit of empty (regarding snow) room.

    The trees, are too big in the background, make em smaller! And it seems as if it's the end of the world on the right side of the background. Add some rock doodads to form a mountain or reduce the fog.
    Yellow flowers, without units!

    Thank you! Yellow flowers, without units it is then!
    I may not be at home today so don't know if I`l finish, already have a new version, hope I get to post it.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    L2love, I like the idea but I don't know if the fog matches the sky, did you try a bright colored sky or maybe I'm wrong.
    If you're using a dark sky how about adding some lightning in that scene!
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Nevermind! Like it, hate it, this is my final image. I used my lighting technique on it.

    I know my terrain has bugs and could use a lot more work but I don't have more time for it so I'll just leave it as it is. If a extension is made I might Tweak it a little, or not.
    Fladdermasken, I want to see your final work!
    Good luck to all other participants!
    I'm off...
