      "Acting under orders from Hive Staff" This is simply NOT true. I do not understand why you would say that? Pleae refrain from misleading the public, sir.
      We never told you to remove your resources. We simply asked you to cooperate with us, while we check with Blizzard Entertainment that we are allowed to host rips from other games other than Blizzard games.
      We are currently in contact with Blizzard regarding this issue. So keep your cool while we find a solution dude ;)

      My condolences.
      This is a disgusting and sad situation.
      I do not understand the reasons why the administration of the site believes that these models and textures can make any problems.
      You don't monetize your amazing works, and the original game has been open for modding for a long time and, actually not so popular and... kinda unfairly forgotten.

      P.S.
      Do you thinking about publish such resources on sites with softer rules?

        As long as you don't want to monetize your stuff and project, I don't think anyone would have problem with that. Anyways, who would play that abandonware Sierra game anyway? I'd rather play yours and as also for sticking with WC3.

        Precisely

        Myself, I wouldn't take money for my models even if it were mailed to my doorstep

        I model as a hobby, for fun (sometimes), and to preserve old games I've a fondness for

        I care for the elderly, and I kneel in the dirt and tend to gardens and pools for my bread.

        I agree, so that admins must quickly decide to leave things normal as it should be. If it's for fun only and no ads, paypal and crap, then we can all forget this happened. I wonder if when they would fix this issue and hammer the last decision of keeping the models. :)

      From the whole Russian community of fans of the world of Middle-earth, we want to support you in difficult times. We love your work, great models. Stay strong! I hope with the help of other sites it will be possible to save your resources. As I do in my Russian community. You are the best! Remember this.

      Just heard the news a bit ago; thoughts & prayers go out to you, man, that you'll be able to get this all resolved. You are one of the more prolific & talented modelers on the site, and it would be a shame to see you go.

      Keep on keeping on!

      I believe it would be for the best if it would be possible to edit those textures and see these models re-uploaded. Though I am aware that would be a ****load of work, maybe you can call up some backups - there are so many talented people around here. I don't want to pick sides here, and I understand both your frustration and the admin's reasoning. But I am sure of one thing - if those models will remain taken down & if it discourages you from making more, Hive just lost one of its most active members. And it will be just ****** up. Howgh!
      P.S. I wish you all the strength and patience in the world to bear through this storm, mate.

      Having read the various strings of comments, in regards of your WOTK models, couldn't you (or someone else) just remake the face textures?
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        I can

        But I have far, far less enthusiasm for Wrath of the Kaiser now that WotR is dead.

        The Russians and the Americans are the ones who need to be remade - which annoys me to no end because the packs for them are huge.

      Despite the harsh stance some of the staff of this website has taken against you recently, I can guarantee that the majority of the users harbor nothing but feelings of gratitude and appreciation towards your extensive and continued work, the fruits of which you always shared for free with everyone else on the net.
      As others have pointed out, the fact that your content isn't compliant with the rules of this particular platform doesn't need to spell death on your entire project. There's bound to be other host-websites that can support you.
      Cheers

        Hey Ralle thanks for clarifying. Of course what you write here can't be denied. I just happened to read a comment from part of the staff which, summarizing, stated that even if theforced removal of many of his published resources killed herrdave's project they didn't really care.
        On the spot I thought that it was kind of rude/harsh and wanted to make sure the man knew that there are people out here who are genuinely grateful to him for all the assets he made and released over time.
        I hope that in light of this explanation you won't misunderstand my first post here as some kind of criticism directed to the staff and its behaviour as a whole, cause it isn't. It was meant merely as a show of support to dave. That's all.

      Hive doesn't deserve you. However, Hive desperately needs passionate creators like you, so don't let your spirit down, don't pass on your modeling enthusiasm and I'm expecting you to come back stronger than ever and continue your projects.

      Crazy. At first I thought it was something related to the tags I was telling you about, that you got mad or something.
      But, we've been approving maps with ripped resources for a long time. So, nothing stops you to upload them somewhere else than the resource sections.
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        Oh God no, I'm not that petty xD

        I was fixing to go through and fix the tags when I got an alert from Ralle that I was in some serious trouble.

        I appreciate you checking me on my tags, no worries

        The only thing to do so you can get them back in Resources is to Request for skins which might or not happen. If it does, it'll take a lot of time. Anyway, as I already wrote, we still approve maps with ripped models/resources if proper credits are given but we'll take them down if we are asked to by the original owners of those ripped files (which still didn't happen until now).

        That's true because of the hard work with the custom animations, the warcraft 3 style which fits in very well, and the abundance of portraits/decay animations which are lacking in many other models. Top notch stuff.

      You are one of the most productive Modellers on this Site. It is an absolute, utter Shame to see your work taken down. Surely the Rip of Skins can't have been *that* extensive? Most of your Models had already been reworked multiple times.
      Without knowing everything, anything really, it feels alot like people accusing Star Citizen of "ripping" the UnReal Engine.
      Are you planning on re-working the Skins?

        Having just researched it - nope D:

        I've only ever done work on one other beast model, a colossal dragon with a shitload of animations - aaaand it was a grueling experience I don't want to repeat.

        The two main problems I have with beast models are getting the texture to wrap properly and animating the monster

        I have a lot of problems animating anything with more than two legs, hence why I had to out-source the animating of the Mirkwood spiders to someone else :<

        Oh, I get it. Same complications and complexity as Warhammer's Hell Pit Abominations and all those with many legs. So, I noticed your stuff are mostly bipedals. But you successfully made horses without outsourcing them.

        HerrDave
        I've /sort of/ been successful with horses.

        None of the horses were made from scratch by me, but are rather edits of the Archmage, Knight, and Chaos Warlord (Slavemaster from the human campaign)

        By the way, Holy HELL it's hard to kill a hell-pit abomination in Warhammer Total War
        My WAAAAAGH got completely stunted by just 1 encounter with it x_x
