    I just want to thank you for all campaigns and especially for Mathias campaign...Lack of cineamtic, camera, visual, terrain in original couldnt show story in the way you showed it with your rework. Hoping you can do second part. Best wishes.

    Hello! I suggest you play by release order. That means starting with Joe's Quest Gold, Deandra's Tale, Mordork's Quest and Joe's Quest 1.5.
    Whenever I read about modern games taking up 80 to 150 gigs in HD space, I wonder why I get so worried adding a few more megabytes to my custom campaign for new assets, etc. Like, is this really an issue these days?

    Not really, if you're making single player maps. Most people have good enough internet speeds these days, so having a campaign at 300-500mb shouldn't *really* be a problem.

    I remember when going over 50 megs was considered crazy (even for single-player stuff). I even had to find hosting for those files. That said, I still probably wouldn't use a 17 meg model if I had no choice.
    I find myself spending more time editing and uploading custom assets to my campaign file than actual mapping. Hmm.
    How did you put units on a ship ? (if you dont understand i mean how did you make the ship walkable on) if it is okay to learn your secret ;).

    If you mean a standard ship model with models on it, the ship would be a doodad, and the units on it would be doodads too?
    Any hopes of you continuing the Mathias series?

    Still to be determined. I've looked into Mathias Part II and if I were to work on it, it would be a serious, time consuming overhaul...
    Yo my walrus, care to make some updates to that Battle of Azeroth campaign of yours?

    I don't use sleep. It's buggy and with time errors add up.
    I'm sorry that happened... You should be more attentive.

    It's really a bummer. I've put that project on hold and am working on something else for the time being.

    Alrighty.
    Holy shit, dude. YOU'RE BACK!!!! MAN, I WAS AND STILL AM A HUGE FAN OF THE JOE'S QUEST SERIES AS WELL AS THE MORDORK SERIES!!! DUDE HOW ARE YOU????
    Med. MapGuy!?! I played Joe's Quest Gold long ago, mon (Before I join the HIVE)! I didn't knew the Joe's Quest's author is a member of HIVE, mon!

    Hehe, I'm also a recently active member here! So sad to see all the other sites fade into oblivion like Samods, etc. But it's nice to be back, even for a little bit!

    (Post) Hope you did not think of my comment as criticism. I am glad you are back tinkering with Wc3 projects.
    Hey Med. MapGuy. I was also a fan back in the day, we even chatted a few times on MSN under another alias. I ended up falling more into cinematics, but I still remember your underwater effect which heavily inspired player_72985's series.

    I'd love to help out if you're back in the game. Granted, I'm working off my rust too. If I figure out how this PM system works...

    Wow, player_72985. I've not heard that name in a long time... Did he ever upload his cinematics here on HIVE? Wait, are you player_72985? I can message you directly.
    Hello, I'm a big fan of your reworks on old forgotten campaigns. I was wondering if you have checked out During the Dark Portal campaign, an old one from 2007 days but made in Russian. I played it through and find it incredibly well done, except for the language which I dont understand, everything was great. I'd say its a brilliant project to revive :D

    Plenty busy at the moment with other stuff. I'll have little time, especially if I intend to continue Mathias Chronicles. Plus I'd have to get permission. Thanks for the tip, though!

    Allright, give it a playthrough if you get time, I'm sure you wont be disappointed. :D
    Hey! So glad to see you continue the Mathias Chronciles! I can't wait for you to get to 3! That's my favorite one that Potato did
    Hey! Played the original Mathias Chronicles a long time ago. It's cool to see you finished updating the first campaign. When (I'm an optimist so I say when) Reforged implements custom campaigns, are you going to update this for reforged? Contrary to everybody else's opinion, I actually love most of Reforged's graphics, and would love a campaign like this series in updated graphics :). I know there are a lot of custom models, so it might not be the most favorable thing you'd like to do, but still

    At the moment, I have no plans to use Reforged. Not because I don't like the art or anything, but because I feel it somehow limits the use of custom stuff since everything is so high-definition. Go try Mathias Chronicles! I've made a few bug fixes. I really hope it's stable and playable and fun.
    What's up! 'm a fan of your campaigns from a while back! Are you actually returning to Warcraft 3? Any chance we'll get to see more campaigns? Sorry for the barrage of questions, just a really big fan xD

    Please try to lol, now that you are back Med. MapGuy

    Tell me without much of spoilers but didt the knight dude from shards of resistance really turned evil at the end? You an answer in pm. Also is there really sequel to Mordork quest? I read years ago that there's one but I never found it.
    D
    I thought you'd never return! I dream of sequels to your campaigns to this day.
    Med. MapGuy
    Med. MapGuy
    Hehe, that's very kind of you! Yes, I do dream as well, but the challenge of making one today is quite daunting!
    D
    Wait… are you the mapguy? THIS mapguy? The guy behind such masterpieces as mordork quest and joe saga?
    Med. MapGuy
    Med. MapGuy
    Yes! One and the same. Warcraft isn't what it used to be, huh?
    Hey Mapguy! Long time no see! So glad to see you around here! I'm Staredcraft, the guy who suggested you remake the Mathias Chronicles...lol yeah wow that was so long ago wasn't it? Don't worry not gonna ask you to get back to that monster LOL Probably would burn you out again LMAO. Can't wait to replay the campaigns you fix
    Med. MapGuy

    Hi there! Yes... It certainly was a long time ago. Mathias Chronicles was something. I'm not sure if that was the cause of my initial burn out, though. I replayed it and I feel I was really at the "prime" of what I was trying to do with WorldEdit at the time. If anything, it was Shards of Resistance that really got me :p
    Hey man, I was interested in dusting off one of your old campaign projects and looking to future proof it for Reforged and newer versions of WC3. I wanted to get your permission first, would that be ok with you? I know you haven't been on in years, so I might try reaching out to you on other channels as well. I hope you've been well.

    Hey there, Captain! I'm somehow back into WCIII, and am considering updating my campaigns if time permits...
    I wonder when you will come back again, but if you do, I'd like to ask you if you still keep any maps (preferably campaigns) from maps'n'mods era, circa 2004
    Med. MapGuy
    Med. MapGuy
    Man, is HIVE really the last WCIII maps site left standing? All the others, including Wc3campaigns are gone?

    It seems so. It did not get anything new since like 2013, maybe only couple of forum posts. Now it seems to be down completely. Understandably, seems that the guys moved on and there did not entrust new people with the site, which was already being obsoleted by hive itself.
    Wow! I was a bit suprised to see a comment by you.
    I just wanted to say, that your campaigns were really the bests out there. High quality work and really good stories! I hope your using your creativity still as good as back then. :)
    You still have a little activities this time, hope you will return this year!

    You know, without you, I'm not what I am now :)
    hey man can you send me by pm the Mathias Cronicles campaign you have made?
    I love this campaign and i would like to play your version
