Hi there, completely dead forum! I'm kind of an old returning type but I'd rather not discuss all that because who cares!

Anyways, I've been terraining since forever but have never finished a map, and I know SC1 is dead but for some insane reason I still really like firing up SCMDraft every now and again. An RPG is in the very basic works (right now I'm simplifying it down a bit) but there's so many nice little things being made WEEEEE. At any rate here they are and if no one ever reads this or sees this well whateva major time. Hopefully a few people could play it at some point. These are just some little samples, I have plenty more (though much of it needs to be retooled)

I've attached a picture of a (large) semi-done area which if you recognize I'd prefer to remain anon (message me?). I kind of doubt it anyways.

Screenshots not in game simply because I'm tired.


Some doodads+wall things (a few are not perfect and might get scrapped, incidentally these are for a scrapyard):

You did an amazing job there. Any chance you could post the terrain as open source?

Might as well put these here! Still working on this, but anyways I've thought for awhile that the default cliffs in jungle are a bit clunky. And cliffs in all tilesets would be way more fun if they weren't always in a straight line, but you can really get crazy with it in jungle/badlands! In some of the SC Beta screenshots you can see the terrain used to be far more interesting. You could have cliffs change angles and shiz, but for whatever reason that was dropped. Also ruins use to be able to blend straight to dirt (fyi that's where the grassless ruins tiles are from). Ugh.

Here is my attempt at making the situation better with this canyon area, and if anyone wants to use these blends feel free to ask me for the map (or copy with your skillzzzz). I'll admit I pilfered a few things from some other people's old maps in this but I ended up editing them around anyways. Doodads forthcoming!


Sorry about the random cursor there in the last one, just noticed that.

Here's also the one other area I posted a lot closer to completion:

Hey there! I also like to open SCMD on and off these days. Though I'm more triggers-person I love the look of the terrain. Especially the dinosaur dead in the wall. It looks like it was half-excavated. Also loved a nice ramp to the middle high-level area on the middle screenshoot the post before previous.

Pr0nogo -- that does seem pretty useful, but thinking about it geographically, the layer before would have to replace the low dirt

Pr0nogo -- did you take those cliffs from the shitty stack blend lmao
