GO TO CONTEST

Contestants must create a Metroidvania map, which is a genre of action-adventure video games focused on guided non-linearity and utility-gated exploration and progression. A metroidvania video game is a subgenre of the action-adventure game platform that is mostly two-dimensional, where the player travels through a map to collect items and gain new abilities, both of which open up the world to further exploration.

Greetings community!

The Workshop forges continue to blaze! We've been hard at work, and today we want to share with you our latest updates to the Hive Workshop.

As you've probably noticed by now, our menu is different. We know this is a big change, because this is something our members use every time they visit our site. It will take some time to get used to. We've made this change because many of our site's features were hidden or hard to find. It was also a way for us to make the menu more simple. But don't worry. We will soon release a Customize Menu option, so that you may customize the menu to your preferences e.g. if you primarily visit our model section, you will be able to add that as the first menu item etc. or recreate our old default one. We are also planning to create a more user friendly method of submitting resources.

Do you like this new menu? Let us know in the comments below.
In other news, we've also added two new features: Asset Scanner & Icon Borderizer.

Asset Scanner

The asset scanners has two main ways of scanning. The first mode allows a user to upload a map having its contents scanned and matched against resources posted on HIVE. It allows you to see which assets were used in the map and to generate a credits list. The second mode allows you to upload an asset and having it cross referenced with assets scanned from all maps uploaded to hive, to show you where it is in use.

Icon Borderizer

The icon borderizer is a quick way to create all needed versions of an icon based on a raw borderless one. Upload a 64x64 image and have Classic bordered versions generated. Upload a 256x256 image and have Reforged versions generated. The result is zipped and dropped in a pastebin that expires after some time.





We have other major site features coming soon.
So stay tuned.

For now, thank you all for making this a great community.

Oh, and don't forget to

It's that time again when we look at some of the best assets that our community has to offer.​

Some new arrivals, some well-known treasures of old. All now sporting the Director's Cut badge.​

DC_Guldan.png
Gul'dan by @Tauer
Model
Tauer masterfully blends a custom mesh, texture, animation set, and special effects to bring this iconic character to life.
DC_Gunner.png
Ratling Gunner by @Gluma
Model/Icon

The Skaven are ready to unleash hell on the Warcraft universe. Including a unit and hero version, as well as a custom icon set, this model's death animation alone is worth the DC.
DC_Flickering.png
Flickering Light by @Mr.Goblin
Texture/Icon
Created for a horror survival project, this vast texture and icon pack unlocks an entirely new genre of mapmaking all on its own.
DC_RMS.png
Retera's Model Studio by @Vendro the Wind Mage
Tool
This really needs no introduction. Anybody who's dabbled in modeling over the last few years has used RMS. The tool is continuously updated and supports Classic as well as Reforged 3D assets.
