    Here are some screenshots from my map "Zombie Wars" which I have started terraining lately.

    Please give feedback about what you like and what you don't, so that I can improve them.

    Oh, and if anybody knows how to remove the ugly selection circle arount units, please tell me. : )

    Your indoor environment needs more doodads and some tile variation, or something on the ground at least. I LOVE your outdoor environment, maybe a bit too flat, but the again, maybe not.

    Calm down Megafyr, its only raid that have something against modern terrain >.>

    And yeah, add some crates and shit inside. Chairs would do for that normal house thing, also, in that same building, some carpets on the floor would be nice too, and since you call this thing a Zombie map, what about some corpses on the floor inside the parking house, or what it is.

    To remove selection circle from units you need to go to your WE Prefrences and check box - allow for negative values.

    Then go to your unit editor and hold shift double click on Art - Selection Scale for unit your using and type in 0.

    Im not sure if you will be able to actualy select the unit in game manualy - u might need trigger for that.

    It looks really cool, I think you should expand the buildings like 200-400% bigger so theirs more space inside to hide and mabey go on top of those containers =).

    I hope theirs a dense fog added to later.

    Very empty... I like cluttered zombie maps (if they are done well), it makes things scarier.

    Outdoors environment is absolutely great. For a playable, 3rd person environment, wonderful. Maybe add a few more grasses, and maybe some height variation, maybe not, either way it's great. Indoors is far too uncluttered. Wish there were some "trash" doodads, just like paper balls or something... would look great.

    Enviroment (bushes + trees, screens 4 & 6) from third person perspective is sexy. Reminds something Valvish, like wastelands in HL2 or something from L4D. Unfortunatelly, buildings are not. Too clean. Too many empty space. Make a hole in the walls, piles of rubbish around it! Pipes, broken and leaking! Bridges over holes in ground make from wooden boards and similarwaste materials. Holes in concrete with plants growing through them (broken concrete, orange grassy dirt tile and grass prop from river rushes) And variate testures.... Maybe some sources of darkness \ lightning, have a look at "not so modern" raid1000's zombie screen in his gallery.

    P.S. Have a look at screen 4, you grass props have shadow. WTF?

    P.P.S Fro rubbish use barrels, including wooden, crates, empty and not, broken campfires, some stone decorations, scaled and recoloured to look like pieces of surrouning "modern" enviroment. Hell, take some crystals from Icecrown, scale them to look flat -- broken glass! You'd need more than one copy though, stack them on each other. From Ruins of Dalaran, houses "sceletons" -- lots of wooden planks stacking vertically, looks great I must say.... Some other "broken" props, like broken wheelcar, broken fountain... In that barn you can spread hay across the floor and put some "farm-like" props, like mentioned broken wheel-car, sceleton horse, I dunno, maybe import something.
