Snoopy's may not be the best by modern standards. But it was ground-breaking - showed a lot of others what could be done.

So were Rhye's and Womok's. I've been inspired by all three when I made my first set. Pounder's work was also very important for me. It's good to have such gifted creators around. I hope that my work offers some improvements as well. :)

I voted for Ares :) I use his terrain. Snoopy's was great for its time and he almost came back to make a (vastly better) new one, but then just disappeared again...

WaterColor Terrain isn't in the list, so I'm abstaining :(

It wasn't nominated, much to my own surprise. Be sure to make your own nominations in the 2nd Nominations Thread (http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=434539) to be sure your picks appear in the next set of polls!

I can't add or take away anything. (The perfection is not when there's nothing left to add - but when there's nothing to take away. Blue Monkey's words are double perfection.) :)

all of the terrains are nice, but from a certain point of view i voted for bane star, maybe there could be a modification to the game engine that will allow you to view this kind of maps, like those used by military commanders in history, just a point of view, what do you say...:think:

I wasn't even aware of the competition until this moment.

Perhaps get one of the mods to put out one of the site wide notification as the top of CFC?

Also, what about all the "other graphics" that people have made for terrain.. I am thinking Pounder mainly.. but things like extended irrigations, life in the desert etc..

Had to choose between Sn00py's out of sheer utility, and Bane Star for being so beautiful.

Snoopy's Terrain for the win, just edging out Ares, whose beta terrain made it a real contest. Congratulations to Snoopy!

BM's advertising worked. ;) Kudos to Snoopy, his work is a real classic.

I still use his terrain as base terrain. Used it for that wall terrain I did last year.

We should have silver medals, in several categories the winner and the runner up both deserved a prize.

Did you see the trophies I made? You want more?

Next time we'll erect a podium & play nationalistic music while the winner's eyes tear up from pollen overload.

Seriously, every one of the runner-ups deserved a prize, I agree.

There's no such thing as too much polen.
