Your Humble MapGuy, from Philippines

I find myself spending more time editing and uploading custom assets to my campaign file than actual mapping. Hmm. Dec 3, 2020

        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.

      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 ;).
      1. Med. MapGuy
        Med. MapGuy
        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?

        Med. MapGuy
        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...

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

        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!

      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...

        Med. MapGuy
        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!

      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
      1. Med. MapGuy
        Med. MapGuy
        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

      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.

      I thought you'd never return! I dream of sequels to your campaigns to this day.

        Hehe, that's very kind of you! Yes, I do dream as well, but the challenge of making one today is quite daunting!

        Yes! One and the same. Warcraft isn't what it used to be, huh?
