    Wip May/June 2014 Lite Challenge: Castle Balthus

    I've yet to do the blurb, I have had this since 2010 and just haven't got around to finishing it, so I thought this was the best time to do so.

    I'm after comments on how to flesh it out a bit more with out over doing it - It's mainly my own stuff except for the stables preset by SuperCaptain and the tables by Bogie (plus a few smaller items from Dundjinni threads)

    Comments welcome please.

    Plus - did I manage to place the WIP text correctly?

    Those castle walls have an Amazing sense of depth, did you make them yourself or are they an object?
    Also, that's some fantastic blending on the largest tower, really top tier.

    I hate to do this since we have so few entries this month, but your entry appears to be in violation of the challenge rules, if I'm reading this right:

    Restriction on Entries: Your map must be original. This means that if the contest is a 'reprise' contest and you took part in the original contest, you cannot repost your challenge entry from the original contest. One Entry per contestant. Your entry must be created no earlier than the date that the challenge is posted. You may not used previously drawn maps as your entry. This is to give all entrants the same amount of time in which to create their entries.

    @evil - yes they are my castle walls towers - created as a tilable object for DJ.

    @Diamond - yup, fair cop, didn't read the rules and reg, but yes, I fully understand that it would give me an unfair advantage. Would you like to move this to a different folder sir?

    I can move it, or you can restart if you want; you've still got two weeks.

    Would love to, but out and about on jobs at the moment (not going too well either! ) will endeavour to get back into mapping, time permitting (you know what it's like to be the sole earner . . . . .)

    I hope you keep going on this map, move it to Buildings/Structures perhaps? It looks like you have access to a satellite, those textures and walls are terrific.

    cheers,
    Meshon
