good news! I made a snow covered tree! bad news... it took 3 hours and 30 minutes and your looking at 1280 doodads in this deceptively pointless picture that all had to be placed one by one lol but i claim first official sc 2 quality snowy tree ever! lol.
EDIT: yeah i should just get myself a 3ds max or whatever its called and import something from wow or make my own tree from that system. also this would only be in showcase terrains but i thought i might as well make it because I had nothing to do.
Hey folks! We're gonna be taking it easy these holidays and extend this WTE for a week, with a little addition; for this week, new years' style of terrains will also be welcome! Enjoy your holidays, and good luck mapping if you get around to it :)
Sheo. I look at your first picture in the post above mine, and all I can think is Batman Returns... LOL. It looks good. People out on the streets celebrating Xmas... the perfect time for The Penguin's goons to terrorize!!
Here is an attempt with my bad terraining skill, I was just having this map and another one to play which is the Korhal Capitol/Palace of Mengsk and Valerian or how I imagined it looks like. Yes I always stick to the lore, for example I cannot put Raynor and Mengsk next to each other like some did for the terraining ;>
So with snow coming and the Christmas & New Year, I decorated a little, I must say I don't like these excuses of lights which are ShapeSphere with changing tint color. Cause even with my bad terraining in war3 I did some particle light with white core, red/other colors half around it and it was shining so much on the snow making the snow all kinds of colors that it looked nice even with by bad terraining. Here I don't see this effect.
The graphics are High and yes it is the lack of a good particle of white+color, these colorful balls, kind of dont look like the lights I had in mind and in war3.
Added santa & snow (which was never meant to be on these maps now) to experiment with how I will import my own models from war3 to SC2, when the time comes. P.S Shots made from the editor, Star is standing in-game, not that it matters
