Just here for the pie

(Thanks to Woodenfire's terrain ladder from Sen v4)


The Official Terrain Ladder
Hosted by lil-Inferno
Contains 124 Pictures, 5 Maps, 1 Terrain Map Compilation, and 16 Members
Major Contributors Include Jello-Jigglers

Note: Those of you who were in the Sen v4 ladder, feel free to send in your blends again. Also feel free to post not only Jungle, explore other tilesets.

I am starting this system which will be used to display the knowledge and best work of Terrain Makers on SEN. It will be a simple system which will give minerals as bonuses and display your glorious terrain for all to see and admire!
I will be giving away 50 minerals for entry pieces, and 25 minerals for every other person you ascend above on the ladder, starting from the bottom.
All SEN members can join this exciting ladder to find the best blends on Starcraft.
There are no requirements. You can have sprites, blocky concept terrain, and do such in any tileset you feel comfortable in. But remember, the better your terrain, the more minerals you can earn, as well as respect from your peers here at SEN.

The fact that people are setting up position for you to climb, I will not send rewards for the first set of posts until I feel comfortable having you climb and to display your improvements. This rule will be carried out from this point on and will effect all new ladder members. Once the economy grows and fellow members start to contribute, I will give out the rewards.
Errors do occur, if you find a link not working or anything out of the ordinary; please contact me via personal message. I will try and continue to update both the database of maps at the bottom and the host terrain screenshots.
Realizations that some map makers do steal concepts and ideas for one another; I will personally check anything that looks suspiciously familiar and make sure it doesn't have any other key displays of copying. Thank you for your consideration for the respect of fellow terrain and map makers.

Question & Answer
Frequently Asked Questions

Q : How Do I Submit My Terrain?
A : To submit your terrain, simply Personal Message lil-Inferno on SEN with information about yourself as a terrain maker, personally, and your terrain piece. Send a Photoshack or other image hosted link. Links that fail to work will not be used and they will not be updated to your current position. Please give me a name for the link that I will post in the ladder that leads to your terrain piece, if you do not, I will name the terrain piece myself.

Q : How Is My Terrain Rated?
A : All terrain is rated by lil-Inferno and can not be voted on. As updates occur, I may change position of ladder members constantly. I will only accept terrain that has a hint of extended terrain, but some can be isometrical as long as it has a hint of extended terrain.

Q : What If I Feel I Was Judged Unfairly?
A : If you feel your piece is neglected or unfairly rated, please contact lil-Inferno on SEN via a Personal Message, or via Starcraft on lil-Inferno@USEast. Any dispute in this thread will be labeled as flamming and a moderator will be notified.

Q : How Do I Donate Minerals?
A : To donate minerals, click on my profile and click on the option for giving minerals to a member in a Personal Message. In your message, please tell me the exact number donated and any comments you would like to add. The continued donations will help keep this system active and help in redirecting rewards to those who earn it.

Host Database
Collection Of Terrain Maps

This is where I will be keeping links to downloading terrain oriented maps for viewing and study. All aspiring terrain makers started at some point from watching others do it as well. You can help to increase this database by sending a link to a download Via Mediafire, the SEN map database (Open source terrain maps.) or by submitting an attachment. (Preferably send a Mediafire Link.)

How will u give the minerals? u have 36, and i'll try my best in this, by the way, when does it end?



None.

The sword and the faith

As per the other terrain ladder, people usually donate minerals to it. Also, i believe Moose or someone in a moderator position gave a big chunk of change in the last one to keep it running. I suppose if no one donates Inferno will just try to contribute more to SEN in various posts to get enough minerals to keep it going.

Hurray for the good old SEN. I'll enter something soon.

Mar 24 2008, 7:29 pm JaBoK Post #6



Well, I'll probably donate a big chunk to get it started once stuff starts to get going well. That being said I'm also gonna be throwing a ton of terrain in.



None.

You won't get the minerals yet, at least not until the economy grows. I need contributors.

And if you feel like your terrain was neglected, send me a PM complaining why you think you deserve a higher position. Alternatively, if you have more pieces, chances are you will ascend higher.

Corbo -- Suicidal Insanity
Suicidal Insanity shouted: I had thought it loads it from the MPQs and parses it, so I was working on re-implmenting that with the MPQ code changes, and then noticed that it does grab the MPQ interface but then ignores it :X
nice
[09:23 am]
Suicidal Insanity -- I also still could use spec sheet for the formats to make sure I am using them correctly - it appears BWscript doesn't have string names? Or they are in a different spot?

Suicidal Insanity -- I had thought it loads it from the MPQs and parses it, so I was working on re-implmenting that with the MPQ code changes, and then noticed that it does grab the MPQ interface but then ignores it :X
[09:03 am]
Pr0nogo -- ok, i'll explore that when you have that changed
[08:54 am]
Suicidal Insanity -- if trigedit has such things
[08:54 am]
Suicidal Insanity -- Or maybe change it to a warning
[08:54 am]
Suicidal Insanity -- I just need to disable the verification, then it would allow arbitrary characters
[08:48 am]
Pr0nogo -- would be nice to change that and see if that allows arbitrary characters
[07:24 am]
Suicidal Insanity -- Pr0nogo
Pr0nogo shouted: trigedit won't compile or throw errors, i'll try with the custom aiscript files imported to the scmd mpq
Ya trigedit has the aiscript.bin file added to its resource - it doesn't load it from the MPQs
[06:13 am]
Pr0nogo -- agreed
