Hey What is the best or most common way of creating 3D RTS maps. How does Warcraft 3 do it? Is it better to use small planes and use them as tiles or use a heightmap? Thanks

I'm pretty sure they have their own map editor, like the simple one Warcraft II had...

I think most RTS games (3D + 2D) divide the map into tiles. Then you can set a certain elevation (and many other attributes) to each tile without too much trouble.
