      I solved this disaster!
      After I tried to import the dlp texture into the editor, I succeeded!
      Please forgive me, after all, I am just a newcomer.

      Hey, we want to make a new map similar to WIF, WIF has a lot of good ideas. Can you allow us to use some of the content in the map?

      Love your avatar... I'm also a big fan of Calvin and Hobbes. I even made a fan art of them. :D
      Question, would you be up for some skill exchange? I'm looking for someone to add a slight swinging animation to a pine model I'm using and I'd like to trade some of my time/art for it. :)

        lovely tutorial. But might take me a few hours to get it done while for you it might take you 15minutes. So yeah, I think a simple trade is the way to go for now :D

        Sorry to continue so late again, but is there any way you could reach out to "Yellow" and work together to make it so that the MDL's animations are imported too?

      Hey Fingolfin, what did you base mass command on?

      By the way Fingolfin, you should add the World in Flames discord link to the map "https://discord.gg/AY3CzP6" so people will know where to find it.

        Cool! Last time i tested the built-in MDL exporter though, it didn't seem to work? Or is he using some other plugin for that? Either way, it is interesting to see how other people have designed their exporters.

        It is a bit inconvenient. You first have to make a directory like this: ~/Desktop/WC3Data. Then you could extract the MPQs into that folder. You'll also have to convert the BLPs to PNGs. Is there something else...?

        Oh, and also back then, I was using an MDL importer by someone else. But it's broken now, unfortunately. I've updated the description over time to make it all work.

      By the way Fingolfin you attachment spell is broken in the new version. To use It I have to resort to using an older Wc3 version and JNGP, and if I sometimes forget to use the JNGP and start it with the WE it will break the triggers if I save it.

        Thanks for letting me know, i will check it out, though i hope that Blizzard will patch issues like these in the future. I don't think they mean to break backwards compability with these new patches.

      On a completely different note, what Editor do you use to edit and create your maps. With the newer version of Wc3 most of the custom editors are now heavily outdated and simply do not work with newer maps, in which case I would like to know what editor you are using?
      1. Fingolfin
        Fingolfin
        I can't remember, but i think it is 1.28? I have the newest version on my desktop and an older one on my laptop. Regarding a new version, i've been busy with my day job and buying christmas gifts (man, i hate christmas). If you have a wish list, i can go through it and see what i can do. On my agenda is to increase Domination win limit, change back spaced armor so that it applies to existing tanks, and some other unspecified buff to axis. Maybe another starting battleship for Japan? Idk.

      When are you planning to release a new version for WiF, or at least address your community in some way.

      Something about exporting through Milkshape had completely fucked up my normals. I was close to giving up.
      Your blender exporter, sir, is a lifesaver. Thank you.

        Thank you! I'm so glad to hear that people are using it!

        Hi, @Fingolfin, I also would like to ask for your permission to use some of the models in WoF because I lack of buildings and units for a project?

      Hey Fingolfin, new version of WiF seem to desync people often. What may be cause.
      1. Fingolfin
        Fingolfin
        There is no particular cause related to the changes i made since none of them could cause desync. However, version 1.31 of Warcraft is known to have great desync issues on maps which previously worked fine.
