    Hi All. am currently updating the post with updates on the work i've done in the last week or so.

    It includes: first drafts of Andorhal and Tyrs hand, as well as surrounding area. additionally, i've completed draft 2 of Lordaeron City, and i'm happy to share the progress of this city with pictures. With the work concluded i've basically finished draft 1 of (going by commonly known as names): Tirisfal Glades, Western Plaguelands, Eastern Plaguelands and Quel'Thalas.

    I've also done a ton of work on game design. Including racial outlines for phase 1, and some long term system mechanic goals.

    Enjoy the screencandy, and please do share any input you have. Do bear in mind that like the previous images, this is alpha, and is missing it's clutter doodads, and a lot of polish.

    Seems very small. Especially compared to Silvermoon.

    I assume this is because the majority of Purples base in within the undercity.

    Well, the city itself is the same size as Eastern Silvermoon (The side of Silvermoon with most of the buildings), As for unit building structures, I haven't decided whether to create Undercity as a place you can go in yet. That being said, If you add all the unit producing structures through tirisfal glades, you get all the Forsaken ones.

    As for practical buildings (ie usable ones including farms), Silvermoon so far has 7, Lordaeron City 5, And Stratholme 7.

    In the cases of all the races, their practical buildings are spread out throughout their territories.

    This is where I currently am with unit Techtrees, All input on this front is welcome, this is just a rough outline for now:

    A quick explanation of the intentions and systems currently outlined.

    1) The intent is for a player to not need more than 5 Control groups for their main army, 6 if you include flyers and 7 if you include navy.

    2) Spamming can be done, but it has limited effectiveness and feeds your opponent a lot of XP.

    3) Specialties are a elite unit choice system. Each faction has 3 specialties. When you select a specialty you get that specialties elites. You can change your specialty, however it is on a 10 minute cooldown. When you change your specialty, you lose the elites of that specialty. This unit requires that you control a capital to produce.

    4) Each player starts with 2 heroes, more can be received, and/or lost during events.

    5) More units that are event specific will be implemented (elite and otherwise)

    The capital city looks fantastic, no doubt about that. But i agree with Lunelune that it seems very small and little space to move around in it.

    I'll see what I can do. I have an issue with space for the map in general.

    What would y'all recommend, Shall I remove some of the buildings, alternatively, I can make units 20% smaller.

    Wow Hellborne, it is an honor to see you again here. It has been so long since I have seen you :( Btw we gotta meet on teamspeak some day :-)

    About the map, it looks fantastic as your last project called Plague wars, if you lost the file I still have it and can send it you if you need it for something. It inspired me greatly in building Stratholme. http://brigandshaven.net/threads/progress-information.3741/

    Anyway, good luck with the map :-) Mine will be done soon and we are planning as well to release patches and expansions so right now it will be only 2 v 2. Go check it out we just resumed our wokr and it should be done soon. Really looking forward to having more suggestions.

    Wow, I haven't noticed this until now, one thing I want to mention and I'm not sure if you know it or not, if you want to give doodad buildings team color, you can make them buildings and then give them the locust ability and remove their vision, I wanted to mention this because Silvermoon looked weird with the neutral colored doodad buildings.
