Greetings everyone!

We are very excited to introduce Honeycombs!
Honeycombs are the latest in the Hive Workshop's ever-expanding list of features, bringing with them a fully revamped download system, a new dimension to our vast resource sections, unlockable site themes & more!


What are Honeycombs?
Honeycombs are the site-wide currency of the Hive Workshop. Members will be able to spend their accumulated Honeycombs on downloading maps and resources and unlocking cosmetic elements such as new site themes and exclusive merchandise. Each member's Honeycomb count or "Honeycount" will be visible under their avatar, right next to the XP bar:

How are Honeycombs acquired?
Honeycombs are automatically generated much like Experience. You can earn Honeycombs by:
  • Starting a thread
  • Replying to a thread
  • Submitting a resource
  • Receiving a positive reaction
  • Receiving a Honeycomb award from a contest
As an additional perk, Hive Heroes will receive a 10% bonus to Honeycomb generation!

In addition, Honeycombs can be purchased in the Merch Shop in three Honeybundles*
  • $4.99 - 100 Honeycombs
  • $14.99 - 325 Honeycombs
  • $32.99 - 750 Honeycombs
*prices are subject to change

What is the revamped download system?
The new resource download system is an exciting way to discover resources and diversify your asset collection! Starting tomorrow, members will be able to download maps, models, skins, icons, and sounds in exchange for a set number of Honeycombs! The pricing is based on the type of asset downloaded:
  • Icon - 3 Honeycombs
  • Skin - 10 Honeycombs
  • Model - 20 Honeycombs
  • Map - 100 Honeycombs
  • Campaign - 250 Honeycombs

Maps and assets awarded the Director's Cut rating will cost a flat 25% Honeycombs extra.

Can I still download assets the way I used to?
If you are running low on Honeycombs and can't afford a particular asset you'll be able to use our new and exciting Free Download feature, which will grant you a resource pack full of random assets of the type you were looking for. These packs can contain anything! With a bit of luck, you could even get the asset you were after in the first place. And if not - then your collection is that much more interesting. Say goodbye to using the same old assets over and over again in your maps!

The resource packs quantities vary according to the type of asset as follows:
  • Icon Resource Pack - 10 random icons
  • Skin Resource Pack - 5 random skins
  • Model Resource Pack - 3 random models
  • Map Pack - 2 random maps or campaigns

We'll be rolling the update out over the next week. To celebrate, we'll be giving each of our members 10 FREE Honeycombs as well as the ability to purchase our first-ever HONEYCOMB EXCLUSIVE SITE THEME (available for the price of 1000 Honeycombs)!

Until next time, and as always: stay sweet!

Greetings Community!

Today we are introducing: Hive Heroes!

Inspired by the Warcraft 3 Heroes, the Hero account upgrade is a monthly subscription/patron membership for registered members of the Hive Workshop. We call it 'Hero' because you will help keep the Hive alive


You can choose to support the site by giving 5, 10 or 25 USD per month. Depending on the amount you will get access to exclusive perks only available to the Heroes of the Hive Workshop.

Becoming a Hero unlocks special perks and awesome swag for your profile. So, if you see a Hero while browsing the site, remember that he or she is helping keeping the site up - for you and for me.

See the list below for a full overview of the perks you can unlock. Future perks may become available as we continue working on the site.

Your support is greatly appreciated!

I started this site when I was 14. I didn't have a job and had all the time in the world. I spent it making my Warhammer 40,000 TD map and later learned to code and built a website for it, War Hive, as it used to be called.
I am now 32 and I have a house, a wife and two kids. I only have a fraction of the time I had back then and it’s harder for me to justify spending time on it because it’s making close to no money. I don’t personally need it to make money because I would work on it for free any day and I take great pleasure and pride in doing just that. But to give Hive the amount of time it deserves, it also has to make some sense economically.
I could junk up the site with more ads or put important features behind a paywall and make a few extra bucks that way. But I hate ads and I wouldn't want to corrupt the experience of visiting the site. I don’t even feel good about having the ads we already have (Yes we have ads). But if I remove them, I will be paying all bills uncut myself.
I am here to ask for your help. Help me pay for the site and the time I put into it. Help me justify putting lots more time into it.
During the run of this site, I have interacted with long time members who picked their career based on the interests they formed during their stay on this site. They are software developers, graphic designers, 3D modellers and game designers today. If you are one of them, think about how it has changed your life.
When we reach $300 per month, I will arrange for a full day every month to work exclusively on Hive. When we reach beyond that I will have to seriously reconsider my the amount of time I spend on my day job.

This doesn’t come without perks though... I have arranged a handful of tiers as listed above."
