      What do you think about Warcraft 3 Remake? And HiveWE's situation about this remake?

        From the information that Blizzard has released and what can be deduced from the promotion materials it seems that:
        1. Reforged is almost purely a graphical update
        2. The map format remains the same

        HiveWE possibly renders the new graphics without problems albeit they might look a little different from ingame.

      Have a simple suggestion for HiveWE, add a string color generator from Warcraft 3.

      Hey; figured I'd poke around in the HiveWE source a bit for the hell of it and see if I want to add anything. I'm new to both Windows and graphics dev (I mostly do scripting and algorithms stuff on OS X/Linux). After installing QT 5.10.1 and setting it up on the project it's failing to build on Win 10 with an error about a missing GLES2/gl2.h from within qopengl.h. Google isn't super helpful and I don't have that much patience to debug this (spent about 10 minutes and already losing interest), but any idea if there are some extra steps that are missing from the README that ought to have solved this?

        I changed some things around with the .gitignore so it should work now. If you have any questions feel free to ask here or on the Hiveworkshop Discord.

      Some nice and interesting stuff you are doing. Good work on the HiveWE.

      For the misc tile field, in your code you apply a bit mask to get the last 4 bits: corner.cliff_texture = (misc & 0xF0) >> 4; but then you do a right bit shift of 4. In your documentation I don't see why you are doing a bit shift on the last 4 bits. Can you explain? Doesn't this mean cliff texture will always a value between 0 and 15?

      Hi, what is the 16th bit in "water_and_edge" in w3e used for? Is it always 0? According to your spec (and code), the 15h bit is whether the tile is on the map edge). Then in your code, you do the & of "water_and_edge" with 0x3FFF which just applies to the first 14 bits in binary: 0011 1111 1111 1111. Is the 16th bit used for anything?

      Hello! I just learned about your great work breaking down the structure of Warcraft 3 map files and manipulating these programmatically. I am interested in be able to read terrain+doodad data from existing maps and then sample from this data to write new maps with new terrain+doodad data. I have a background in high level programming (Python, Java) and machine learning (which I want to use to generate new Warcraft 3 maps by learning from existing ones). Please let me know if there is any way I can help your work, and I may be coming to you for questions as I try to make use of your C++ repository.

        Thank you! Do you intend to randomly generate Warcraft 3 maps? As of now the code only has almost 100% terrain loading, but only very limited doodad loading (though I'm currently working on it). It might be interesting to someday possible extract only the parsing code into a library.

        Hi! Yes my intention is to be able to generate non-noisy Warcraft 3 maps using your code which would include a terrain layer followed by doodad layer. My ultimate goal is a "world generator" for a map I'm making, where players submit "passwords" to an online web page that will generate a new random world (i.e. a new playable Warcraft 3 map file ).
