    We are happy to announce our latest hosted project titled "Embercraft" by Quilnez!
    Visit their new forum and check out the download page!

    LOGO small.png

    EmberCraft is a total conversion isometric ARPG. It is heavily influenced by the infamous Torchlight 2 and Diablo 3 as inspiration for the dark atmosphere but takes place in an entirely new world with custom plot and storyline. The map will focus on enjoyable monster massacre and challenging & amazing boss fights. It revolves around a powerful random content generation system (for item stats, dungeon, shop, etc), to always deliver new experience on each go, and to provide incredible amount of item variations (6,000+ and counting).

    We are aware the map still has a lot to work on. We are highly responsive and considerate toward user feedback. So keep feeding us suggestions, criticisms, and bug reports and help us to shape the world of EmberCraft!

    We've got battle-ready tanks on the Hive. We've got trees equipped with wooden weapons. We've even got ancient horrors that will cause insanity.
    But sometimes it's nice to stop and smell the roses (which we've also got on the Hive).


    That's right, this month's resource highlight is what I'm calling the Ultimate Bouquet of Flower Icons. Inspired by the spirit of gardening, and my local flower festival that happened the other weekend, this is your reference to find an assortment of flower-related icons for a variety of uses.

    Have a look to see if any icons catch your eye.


    The Real Deal Flowers

    You're looking for real flowers of different varieties for one reason or another. Well, here's a good selection to pick from created by a number of different artists.

    Action-Ability Plants
    When you've got an active flower-based ability that needs a good looking icon, here's some good candidates to browse. They're a bit more than just the flower top and also have a bit more depth to them.

    Sentient Flora
    Looking for a flower with a bit of life to it? Perhaps a bit too much life? These icons by Kuhneghetz and Kimbo may be exactly what you need. A predatory plant of pain (with a model to match) and sunflower with eyes are perfect assets for your garden defence map.

    For Your True Love
    Love is in the air and you need an icon to resemble that. Well, viiva and PrinceYaser have created 2 perfect icons to look at. The "Charm" hand is perfect when you need an icon to say "give flower". But, the less specific rose bush can also spell romance without the hand.

    "Uncle Lothar wants YOU!" -Footmen


    In 2016, user Tauer uploaded an impressive model for Sir Anduin Lothar of the Alliance. Lothar is featured in Warcraft II and his actions have made him one of the greatest warriors.

    Sir Anduin Lothar has garnered quite a reputation with a 5.00 rating as well as 5000+ food supply (AKA downloads). Tauer gave the armour and weaponry lots of fine detail to admire, but the animation helps make the model very functional. The model includes 23 animations such as defending, spell casting and channeling. You'll find Anduin Lothar is perfectly suited for command as a hero unit.


    Perhaps you've already seen Lothar used in custom maps and campaigns you've played. He makes an appearance in over a dozen maps such as the Daemonic Sword ORPG, Legacy of the Master, Defenders of the Light, and many Beyond The Throne maps. With a file size of 385KB he makes for a great addition to your projects.

    While you enjoy checking out this month's model, keep in mind that you can also recommend resources for these spotlights; just send me a message. They don't have to just be models, we'll cover more variations in the future. Next month, we'll dive into other resource types available here on the Hive.
