After all the WTE's we've had, I figured it might be an idea to consolidate all of them in one big thread, to make it easier to browse through the specific themes we've had as well as pointing out any Joint Terraining Exercise that were held on these boards.
To start off, an explanation about what the WTE (Weekly Terraining Exercise) is. Every Monday a new one starts, and I make a post explaining the new theme of this week's WTE. The idea is that you make a terrain based on this theme and show it off by posting screenshots in the thread. It is not a contest or anything, and it is open for anyone who'd like to join - don't worry if you're a total noob at terraining, the WTE's purpose is to make us all better terrainers. That said, here's a list of all the WTE's done so far.
I was thinking of perhaps an underground temple or some sort (think of the inside looks of a pyramid/crypt/tomb). Also, because I'm going to create one for my own map I'd like to see how other go around with it :P
I just thought of one. Perhaps an idea could be an Animal Planet type of deal where we pick an animal or use one of the animals in the WoW model packs or something and create a natural environment around them. Or Man Vs. Wild where we portray a scene where a character is scaling treacherous landscapes or surviving off the land.
Would be about a racing event of some sort, could be a simple track for Cars, Runners, Aircrafts Zerglings or something completely different, or something more along an obstacle course.
Possibly, an obstacle course for military recruits (of either race) could be another week's WTE (or mix them both into one, I'm sure someone with English as their native language could think of a proper subject name to include them both).
Haven't checked in the editor, but there are roads, not to mention a lot of vehicles and creatures.
(1) Make a terrain that looks like a sports field. You can make one for football, baseball, basketball, tennis, volleyball, track, etc. ANY SPORT!
(2) Find a picture of the outside of a building. Then, make a terrain using the editor to reveal what your imagination thinks is inside. Put pictures of the inside and the original picture that you found.
(3) Attempt at a replica of a terrain from the Wings of Liberty Campaign.
(4) Make a replica of something that you could see today. Example, The Grand Canyon, The Great Wall, The Eiffel Tower, Antarctica, a map of the World, The Moon, etc.
I'll update this post every time I have new (Good) ideas.
Can I suggest ..... Moon Base..... suggest as a base on the moon consisting of constuction, mining, defensive positions. Not so much set in the SC universe but as a logical progression of mans development into space. So mainly terran stuffs.
As a little note - the reason today (21st)'s WTE is late is because I've just come home from three day trip to Disneyland Paris. I'll upload it in the morning of the 22nd, but will start the one afterwards on tuesday again.
When I look at all those, that I have not participate except the 24, I want to try them all one by one! XD Caus all those are great idea. Like make the best terrain without doodates, hide a marine (but those were too hard though, I would do something easier), underwater (very nice idea)... etc.
Just a question, can we keep posting on the older WTE?
So, if you need an idea, I can probably find one too. But this night I must go. Probably this weekend or something like that I will try to find an idea that could be interesting.
Well, generally I prefer people not posting in the older WTE's as the idea is that they're basically said and done. I suppose you should feel free to request a theme to come back if you were specifically interested in it though - if more people feel this way, then why shouldn't I oblige? Also, there's nothing stopping you from making your own thread. I'd love to see some showcases in here, but folks seem to need the WTE as an incentive to show off their stuff. Some, that is, folks like Reaper aren't too shy with it, luckily.
Well, this thread is purely for and about the WTE's - I'm not editing anything else into the OP. Feel free to link to your own work in a post here if you want to, though. Just do it descretely - don't make 12 posts with links.
A reponds a votre 2e question; je parle un peu du Francais, mais mon Francais n'est pas tres bon. Que'est-ce tu demandes? Aussi, 'folks' = "il", comme dans "il paraît que...".
I got an idea of WTE, it's pretty simple and fast so it will probably last only a week, except if there is not many people participing.
For the subject, it free, you do what you want. But, the only thing is... to set the map bound to the smallest (32x32) At this size, you must take care how you place your things. If you put water, you must think about that big shitty water square that often get into the way where we don't want.
Here is an example I've made in about a hour. Notice there is 2 type of water; the lava in the middle and the water in the corner.
We could also make a map that creat a face. Um, that when you place the building and the effects you can see something that is not represented by the units/terrain...etc. An image in an image. (Don't know if you understand what I mean...)
Um. Did you have posted it somewhere else? Caus I remember pictures of this. But with the map, I just learned something... Thanx to you Bronxsy, making me learn the "Object group" for doodate. The only thing is that you don't know witch doodate you are trying to associate. There is only the coord and the doodate name, you cant clic like "select doodate" on the map or w/e.
