    Challenge #3 - Air

    The third Terraining Challenge brings along an elemental theme, more specifically: The element of air. For this challenge, go crazy on the air/sky/wind theme.

    Now, for the challenging part: Do not show any ground, floor or whatsoever. I do not want to see any landscapes; this challenge is all about air & sky.

    Inspiration

    Some inspiration for y'all:

    [​IMG]

    Rules:

    • Your terrain must follow the theme: Air
    • Your terrain may show no floor or ground. Floating islands and stuff are allowed, but no tiles. No landscapes. No ground editable in terrain palette may be visible, but grounds and floors that are made of doodads are allowed. So basically the bottom ground must be completely obscured by fog, subject to far-clipping, outside camera field, or made invisible by some other means.
    • When commenting on somebody elses terrain, be constructive; otherwise, don't bother posting at all
    • Only one entry is allowed.
    • You are allowed to use custom resources as long as they are available to the public for download.

    Date:

    This Challenge will start September 27 and conclude October 11

    Good luck to you all, I hope to see many entries. If you have any ideas, questions or sugestions for the challenge, please go here: http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/terrain-board-267/terraining-mini-challenge-142949/

    Why does it say Challenge #2 - Air? When it's Challenge #3 - Air?

    You are humble and you've obviously got the skills of rallying, coaching, teaching, and you name it. It's the enthusiasm and dedication - something I guess you need as a mod. Great challenge.

    Isn't this a little too much off-topic? The theme is a Terrain Challenge. Not choosing moderator.

    But yeah, Oziris is right. I'm very flattered by your comments, but this isn't a mod election campaign. I'm okay at the place I am now, and I hope I can continue being an addition to the community ;)
    Keiji is doing a great job, he's not as childish as Void was at times (The way he left us was the top of that), he takes initiative and is very professional and serious about his job around here. *Cheer* at Keiji

    I'm a bit confused. Your first inspirational pic shows a "floor" those astronauts are standing on. The second shows a "ground" on top of the islands where the buildings are build on. So is there a kind of floor that is rule conform? How do you make a floating island without a kind of "ground" on top of it?
