    The barrack and one of the farm is still in the wrong place.
    but this is really the starting place.
    Tomorrow I'm doing it for a better screenshot.

    It still ask Viktor, but this package can be downloaded for everyone?


    Thanks for your comment. :thumbs_up:

    Yeah, by the way, like mine was. I had to add bushes around and fog in certain maps(right before publishing it!) to increase landscape quality, since it's indeed too plain empty like this :/ However these are first screens and the game isn't even out so you can still do it now or later ^^

    hmm it is warcraft 2 which was flat, and i think that added to the old school ness of the 2d game, terrain shoudnt really matter in this kinda game it should bring back memories of being the 2d sprited game we all enjoyed and loved so much, anyway guys im still creeping the thread and i think you're doing an amazing job so far, good luck :D , for more effect maybe add some hills and trees with some rocks and bushes should help out a bit for everyone complaining about the flat terrain. and if you guys need another terrain to reduce the flat level, let me know

    The terrain is not flat, the pictures are bad, perhaps I did, but the terrain is not flat.
    There are no huge mountains, but sometimes there are some small hills.
    The fog effect is not turn on, this is my fault.
    Here is a picture of what it looks like a small hill, and even fog.
    ...but this is not the final version, as Lord says.

    There are plants, but Victor said not to use too much enviroments,
    because it so closely resembles the original game.

    Well still, the terrain doesn't have terrain variation, you could draw inspiration from SoC. If you want, I can terrain up a bit :) (I mean doodad-placing not the whole terrain).

    i had the same idea but a lot of people complained about this aspect of the game and i hence had to add details to the ground(also in some mission i did put moonrays or rain as well). The result is pretty good and without changing too much the original game concept it makes it nicely playable with wc3.

    I think that I'm not bad terrain making, a few people like my terrains.
    Check out my albums.
    Even I can make "cave terrain" too.
    but this project does not let me choose what is the terrain.
    As I said, " ...because it so closely resembles the original game..."
    The original game was a lighter and a darker tile, I just have to make the darker tiles.And replace the specified locations,if Viktor want this.
    If you want help something that we are very happy :grin:...but if you have a question to why the terrain :sad: : ask Viktor.

    well i have plan about it with two version of the champaings. One "Classic edition" with the original terrain and everything. And a "Welcome to the new age" with improved terrain and some more. But it still is only in my brain, and i have to speak it with my team :)

    Viktor, are you planning on using the SoC model/Icon pack for this project? They look just like the WC2 unit models only 3D. I would recommend it as we can't let that awesome pack go to waste. However, they didn't make the buildings, but as you probably already know RedX has made a lot of those already. I'm just saying because your project is the only WC2 project still alive right now. I just think it would be good to take the SoC team's model/Icon pack and use it for this project. We just can't let their work go to waste.

    Although, I don't know if your team has already made their own models...

    It seem interesting. :wink:

    Thanks !
    Another website we found this model.

    I do not know,we whether to use these models.
    We talk about this.
    It is possible that we need more terrainers in the team,but we need to talk about yet.

    JimBob: Yes I alredy use some of the model. Not at all but for example knigth and transport i use. The icons: No i won't use them in. I want to use the original warcraft 2 icons. Or maybe just in the welcome to the new ageish version.

    Other: Thanks all of you.
