      Hey Fingolfin, I've converted your Su-35 model to Starcraft 2. Check out that section anytime. :) I'm a little unsure of the attachment points I configured though.

      Hey, tell us whenever you upload your World Dom map so we can spotlight it on the hosted projects tab.

      Hello, remember me? A while back I asked if you could give me the Starcraft 2 models you made and you told me to remind you later, just asking, why didn't you upload these models to hive? They look pretty good and functional.

        I'd like an update too, since I kinda wanna try working on copying the HotS/WoL/LotV Campaign, and apparently, your models look awesome while having a small file size.

      Hi, I downoaded your GrassTallFlowers model from here https://www.hiveworkshop.com/threads/tank-wars.240987/page-2#post-2438523 and it looks really great, except I got weird shadows when I tried to place it in the World Editor (looked fine in Magos for some reason). Here is a picture of what I mean: http://imgur.com/a/8prrY

      I saw in your post that you mentioned something about unshaded layers or something, and was wondering if you could maybe edit the model to remove the shadows? Thanks!
      1. Fingolfin
        Fingolfin
        I can explain to you roughly how to solve this:
        *Open the model in magos model editor.
        *Go to Windows>Materials and double click the material.
        *You will see one or two sub-materials. Right click and add a new one. Double click on it.
        *Set the filter mode of this material to "blend" and the texture to the same as the others. Check "unshaded" and "twosided". Finally, set "alpha" to something suiting - maybe 0.3.
        *When you go to Window>Animation manager and play the "stand" animation, you will see the effect.

        Note that the higher alpha you add to the unshaded layer, the more the grass will appear to glow at night. It's a difficult trade-off, and you'll just have to either balance it yourself or just disable day/night cycle in your map.

        Thanks, it worked perfectly. The glowing at night part is fine, I'm using custom DNC anyways.

      Hello, I have seen 2 models you made from SC2 (Stalker and Marauder) and I saw tan image uploaded by you on the Stalker page with really cool protoss models, if you didn't release them, why? if you have released them where can I find them? They look very cool, thanks in advance.
      1. Fingolfin
        Fingolfin
        I haven't released them because they are incomplete. I can probably send a couple of them to you though, just remind me later.

        Ok, I will make sure to remind you later.

      Hey, so, I don't understand. You upload World in Flames on EpicWar but not on Hive? (in the maps section)

      Any news on World In Flames update? I hope you didn't give up just because a grumpy Marcus told you no one wants it anymore.
      1. Fingolfin
        Fingolfin
        It's practically finished, i just have to take some screenshots for the news post! I know Marcus is just sad because i won't let him edit the map, he even asked me once how much money i wanted for it. ;)

        EDIT: It's uploaded now!!!!!

      How would I convert your Republic Gunship model to a StarCraft 2 compatible format? The files are not compatible with the game, and I can only guess that the .mdx format is for Warcraft 3.

      Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I apologize for bothering you on your Profile, I just started the process of porting custom models into my StarCraft 2 maps, so I am a bit of a noob. I got someone's m3 conversion on your Venator-Class Star Destroyer working, however it is the only file in m3 and dds format. Is there any tips/advice/help you can offer for this situation?
      1. Fingolfin
        Fingolfin
        The models were converted by a guy called HighKingUlfric (i think), you should ask him. I have to warn you though, Blizzard are a bit more strict on what you add into SC2 maps and usually consider Star Wars content to be copyright infringement. I know that one guy who used the ported Venator model got personally contacted by them and asked to remove it.

        Thank you for the warning. I found will look for the remainder of the models there.

        Did HighKingUlfric try to publish a Star Wars map on Battle.net? At least I wouldn't do that with Star Wars models.

      Hi! Because I love the dirt tile or savannah dirt from red shift, can you share it to me? Because I will use it to my upcoming project. I can't contact red shift anymore and I know you're the one who have his tile. I will give a credit to him. :) Thanks!

      Fingolfin do you ever plan on releasing the other models in "World of Flames" I am currently working on a soviet campaign and I am desperate for models.
