      Lol, what's that image? What's with that writing under it? You should crop it or something.

      "Fixed visibility issues. For patch 1.31 version only."

      What about the lightning crash issue?

        I don't think that's a fix. Some might do it accidentally or just will want to continue later and loading the game will result in a crash.
        Either try repairing it somehow by still using lightning triggers or as I've mentioned before by creating dummy units that cast finger of death on other dummy units. This way, the game won't crash but you can't change the colour of the lightning. It's either chain lightning, forked lightning, mana flare, aerial shackles or finger of death.

        I tried before, Finger of death or other lightning spells can't be cast on dummy units because there is nothing to click on.

        !?
        I did it for a map of mine.
        You make invisible units and order them to cast finger of death on each other.
        Make them invulnerable. Don't add Locust. Make them flying too.

      Are you gonna rip more Blizz games models? Variants and such?
      1. dtnmang
        dtnmang
        Ah, I don't know for sure. The problem isn't finding models, it's finding the will to rip.

      Any way to edit (move/rotate) nodes/vertices during animations?
      1. View previous comments...
      2. deepstrasz
        deepstrasz
        The way to do it is by creating new bones and assigning selected vertices to them so you can rotate/move those bones in the animation editor but it's annoying to create so many bones.
        Sep 23, 2019
      3. dtnmang
        dtnmang
        I think it's a good idea to start by opening some simple WC3 models such as the Footman to see how the bones are vertices are linked together to make sense.
        You might be shocked though, to hear that I have never animated a sequence. Porting animation yes, but animating something from scratch no. Just warning you in advance bc if we keep talking I will inevitably say something I've no idea about. Have you tried asking the resident modelers in Hive?

        :D I'm only doing easy animation edits, moving some limb here and there, rotating it, noting special.
        Now, I'm trying to port the frost wyrm attack on a chicken! :D

      Hi there dtnmang, I was wondering if you can make a red version of your phase disruptor missile?

        Ah thanks for replying dude. I still need your permission to edit your model though :)

        "You can ask the folks at the Hive's Simple Edit Resources Thread to do that, I'm sure they'll be able to do it since it's very simple." is an obvious consent :P

      I've been thinking.. could you maybe try yourself in creating a 'protoss damage sfx' ? ya know, same like the fires that normal war3 building burn with, yet pretty different. sure they should have some small blue flames to them, but the main thing with protoss is the small arcs of lightning that grow bigger with more damage, and also, they're less obnoxious than any of the war3 building fires :b
      1. dtnmang
        dtnmang
        Do you mean the protoss building damage sprites from SC2? Then I'll probably need an animation of what they look like. Because I only played the original SC and BW :p

      2. Misha
        Misha
        well, sc2 protoss building do not have as much of an effect, so it should be to you to experiment a bit and make it like in sc1, with lightning elements , but make it way less overwhelming than war3 fires. take a look at fire models that war3 uses

        Yes. Since the Root bone is on the highest level of hierarchy, its rotation/translation/scaling will affect every child bone it has.

        Actually I figured out a workaround, Instead of scaling down the model I just scaled up all the attachment points as that was the reason I wanted the model to be smaller. Scaling up the attachment points basically solved the problem I had.

      hey, tell me, what's the difference between the two phase disruptor missile models you posted?
      or can i freely delete one?
      1. dtnmang
        dtnmang
        Yes, delete the earlier one, because it was a dupe I uploaded by mistake.

      Thanks for the clarification. The applications of WC3's attack types/damage types were a special kind of mindfuck.
    19. Bribe
      Bribe
      That is correct.
    20. Bribe

      It depends on whether or not you specified the attack type as "normal" (spell) or chaos/pierce/melee/etc (attack).
