  • Interesting to see you’re from New Jersey. I’m currently in New Jersey too! Anyway, Merry Christmas!
    I wanted to wish you all on the Hive Workshop a Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and Happy Holidays! I hope you all enjoy time with friends and family, eat good food, and open good presents!
    I have been busy deciding between building a custom game engine, or game engines, for some computer games I want to make, in a language like Java, C#, C, or C++, using OpenGL or Vulkan along with one of those languages, or make some computer games using a premade game engine like Unity, Unreal, Godot, or GameMaker.

    Using a game engine like Unity saves you time because you have a prebuilt interface and engine to work with but if you start from scratch you can make the game exactly what you want to and you understand every line of code because you wrote it. You also have to pay to make monetize your game if you make it with Unity whereas if you code a game engine or game in C#, C, or C++ it is yours, provided the API you use is free. Unity is cool but there is a lot to learn.

    Yeah, the XNA project, we (me and 1 friend) made everything from scratch. We made simple GUI-components, buttons, modals, scrolling, 2D animation handling, 2D raytracing... Everything (almost) from scratch.
    I kinda don't want to do it all again, so I'll definitely use tools for my future projects :p
    I'm just not friends with Unity yet and I think Unreal is even "worse".

    Unity and Unreal are not perfect but when it comes to making games using a game engine will save you a ton of time and headache over building everything from scratch. Unity and Unreal have poured tons of money, time, and people into developing their respective game engines so it is unrealistic one person can make a similar scope engine in any reasonable amount of time and effort. Good luck with finding the right tools in the future.
    If I have the time I will continue updating Warcraft Europe and my other Warcraft 3 custom maps.
    I wanted to apologize that I have not been spending much time on my Warcraft maps, I have been learning computer programming. I am interested in learning more about Java, C, C++, OpenGL, and Vulkan.
    Hi guys! How are you all? I am well. I have been thinking about getting around to updating my maps and making new ones some day soon. Be well!
    I have been thinking about updating and improving all my maps. Sorry for being gone so long.
    Do You Still Have the V72 Map of Europe? I Lost it when I Re-Installed WC3 , And 24 Maps don't work to me

    I will search through my archive for the map and tell you if I find it. Sorry for the late reply.
    I have been working on some updates for my Warcraft Europe map and I have been working on my other maps too.
    Warcraft Europe V89 is now out! Map is now a larger 24 player map with new custom objects. Enjoy!
    I am currently working on my Warcraft Europe map. I will be making it bigger and I will be adding 24 players.
    I was able to add some of Scandinavia, Russia, the Middle East, and North Africa to my larger Warcraft Europe map. I am still working on it though.
    I have been working on my original Warcraft Europe map and a bigger one too!
    I have been editing my enhanced and custom race objects last I worked on my maps.
    Thankfully we have not gotten too much snow this winter here in New Jersey. Thing have been rather warm here in New Jersey at times.
    I have been busy with other projects for the past couple months but I will try to get around to updating my maps again.
    I added the Plague Trent, Snow Queen, and Satyr Overlord to Warcraft Europe V78.
    I fixed the enemy random transport drop triggers and enemy peon harvest triggers in Rise of the Horde V27.
    I added enemy Peon lumber and gold harvesting and two random enemy transport drops to Rise of the Horde V25.
    I will be updating my Rise of the Horde map with new and improved triggers also.

    I made some major trigger adjustments so far.
    I will be updating all my custom maps with new units and new unit stats in the future.
    So far I have updated 5 out of 6 of my custom maps with my new Blood Elf/Naga, Draenei/Icecrown, and Burning Legion custom races. Enjoy!
