Man you really should get Rimtech to screencap stuff in his map and add it to the zip file so people at least have some ideas what to expect.

Got some:





Main feedback on maps:

- I notice Rimtech likes to use a lot of steep-gradient cliffs and ramps. IMO ramps, being smooth and straight wouldn't work well for natural environments and instead the height tool should be used to create a more natural-looking slope. Steep-gradient cliffs don't look good in SAGE because the textures get stretched a lot. As official maps have shown, medium steepness works best for cliffs...
eg.

reason why RA3 can have vertical cliffs is because the cliffs are objects.

- Rivers could do with a few more additional sections. Right now because there's only a few sections, the water texture looks very stretched. oh yeah in El Dorado map, there seems to be a map editing error on the river around the upper-left bridge, looks like water flowing in 2 opposite directions.

- Terrain on some maps like Dune patrol is extremely flat. Recommend using the height tool to rough up the terrain a little in places farther from the start locations.

I have some feedback for the mappack creator: take a look at the heights of the view. It uses the standard WB heights, which are lower then the game ones.

Really nice maps, just improve those things which have been already told by Valdez and Dutchygamer. Then there will be probably hardly anything to criticise.

Česky: Opravdu pěkné mapy, jen zlepši ty věci, které tu už byly řečeny Valdezem a Dutchygamerem. Pak na nich bude asi stěží co kritizovat.
A na ICQ budu asi sem tam tento týden, pak budu týden na chatě (ch čti česky), takže off-line.

One idea i can give is try doing a heightmap. The worldbuilder can import heightmaps IIRC so just use an image editing software compatible with the file format that WB uses.

Using a heightmap to sculpt the terrain is a good way to set up the major cliffs and relief features that you can then manually fine-tune later when you import the image file into the editor as a heightmap.

Nice, but the one i downloaded is different form the preview. For example, in hostile assault, it has a emp center and a tib spike instead of the tiberium Crystal in the middle like the one in the preview.
