The Road Ahead

The Age of Warcraft team is committed to continuously enhancing the mod. Their immediate goal is to integrate these new factions into nearly all of Blizzard's official melee maps, ensuring a cohesive and enriched gameplay experience. Future updates will introduce racial abilities specific to each faction and quality-of-life improvements such as resource traders and new armor shops that alter hero skins and abilities.

Additionally, the team plans to expand the mod with numerous tavern heroes, further diversifying the strategic options available to players. To support the community, all custom assets are free to use, and the team will provide guides on asset usage, AI development, and the creation of submods and campaigns.

Engage with their Community

The Age of Warcraft team invites all fans and modding enthusiasts to join their growing community. By following their social media channels, players can stay updated on the latest developments, provide feedback, and engage with fellow fans. This project is a testament to the vibrant and collaborative spirit of the Warcraft community

After more than 10 years, "The Picture" - the Hive's unofficial terraining contest has returned!

Description:
The goal of this contest is to challenge terrainers to adapt to their situation, you are presented with a template that has certain aspects you cannot change and certain objects you cannot remove, you are locked to a specific camera angle and you have to work around these limitations to create something unique and wonderful of your own. So, without further ado, here's the rules:

The Rules:
  • Contestants must use the "The Picture" camera angle/asset for their submissions and cannot alter the camera object in any way.
  • Contestants cannot alter the elevation (topography) that has already been changed, although so long as the distinctive height variation stays the same, you may make small changes.
  • "Flat" surfaces can be changed.
  • Contestants cannot delete, resize, or hide doodads that are already placed in any way, the final submission must contain these objects visibly.
  • Contestants can change tile-set, fog-setting, time of day, place, and tint doodads in any way they want and otherwise add any details they want.
  • Contestants can use custom models and assets in their entries.
  • Contestants can submit HD and SD entries.
