  • Hey, great that you finally released LotC 3.0 and that you are happy about it.
    I don't think it should be called beta if it's that polished and basically a full fledged release.

    Anyways, I don't remember, did you enhance your other two campaigns as well or are you planning to?

    Hello. It's in beta until Reforged has custom campaigns.
    Yes, I updated DotD over a year ago to 3.0 and remade many maps from the ground up. I also updated TLG with many significant changes, although it the version only jumpled from 2.1 to 2.2.

    Right, so DotD and LotC would be the choices to replay then.

    I don't understand why beta until 1.32+ gets the custom campaign feature back. Or do you actually mean Reforged, upgrading the campaign to "HD"?
    deepstrasz

    Any plans for Rise of the Horde, at least if they bring custom campaigns back?

    Sorry for the like spam, just that you deserve more XP for what you've done for the community.

    Please use the yellow Edit button at the bottom of your posts and add text there instead of writing one post after another of yours unless it's an important update.
    Hey man, I remember you still modding on 1.31?
    Would you be kind to share some info on how you bypassed those load game event bugs? I'm having issues with unit variables in events.
    Sorry to say I lost interest in the Orcs and Human Remake, but I will be working on my new/old Campaign since I do own Reforged now so I don't have to worry about a lot of stuff...

    You can say it's much easier getting at the Resources and don't have to use skins from the old game, since the new models from Reforged look so much better and such...

    So yeah...

    And how are you by the way Outsider?
    Have any plans to make your Campaigns playable in Warcraft III Reforged or not planning that?

    It's ok, and I was just curious if you are doing that or not...<3

    Too bad about the Orcs and Humand remake... I would like to make Reforged versions of my campaigns, but transferring object data from campaigns to maps is not easy. I would have to replace every single unit/item/doodad/etc on the map and in the triggers.

    I will probably wait for proper custom campaign support until I do anything. Until then I can just collect custom resources that would fit my campaigns.

    Yeah would be tough just to remake and make sure everything works again in Reforged, and too bad...

    Really do miss the whole Custom Campaigns feature the original Warcraft III had...
    Greetings, I am canario0896 and I would like to ask your permission to be able to translate your campaign "Lord of the Clans" into the Spanish language.
    I'm sorry for my English, and thanks for everything.
    OutsiderXE
    OutsiderXE
    Hello. You may do that. But maybe wait until release of 3.0 next year...

    canario0896
    Thank you very much.
    What to wait for 3.0, do you mean the next version of the campaign?
    OutsiderXE
    OutsiderXE
    Sorry for the late response. Yes, that's what I meant.

    (Bundle) With Blizzard making an ass of themselves in regards to my ability to replay your brilliant trilogy. A set of maps that made me buy the books and that I have replayed. All of which speaks volumes. Darn Reforged, all that hope for nothing.

    Just wait for the non-PTR version first? Hopefully that will be safer.
    Also please submit any feedback on the thread here or on their official thread. They need the feedback and looks like no one is really writing anything of value.

    I am not making my changes on the PTR. Unfortunately I dont have to report anything because of that.
    deepstrasz
    deepstrasz
    Ah. I thought you made the changes for chap 1 on it, that's why.
    Oki.
    Just read" the current state and future of my projects - Part 2", and i must say i can't wait for summer 2021. That LOTC update sounds amazing! Do you plan on making him a hero with constant abilities throughout the whole campaign, or will his active abilities change when he becomes a shaman (with the passives we have staying)?

    i like the idea of summoning your own fire pit. I imagine it would be limiting having it only in certain locations. Does the fire pit have any other uses besides changing abilities?
    OutsiderXE
    OutsiderXE
    You can summon the fire pit anywhere but is costs 1-3 lumber per second you have it. Also it has a healing aura that also heals enemies so it is not adviseable to summon during combat. Besides that you can use it to buy stats (agi/str/int) with gold or cook animals like rabbit (agi), pig (str) or raccoon (int) for temporary but high stats.

    Your fire pit is a hero ability so you can spend attribute points to inprove all its abilities.

    Fire pits around the map (that you dont summon) have higher healing and can be used for fast travel.

    Nova Covert Ops vibes?
    Hey man, will it be too much to ask you to test your maps on the new SCII PTR? You could give most valuable feedback. I haven't used the Galaxy Editor more than seeing what's in it. I was too scared at the sight of its incredible godlike possibilities and super IQ necessity to understand it.
    deepstrasz
    deepstrasz
    Do you know how to work with that nightmarish Data Editor, especially on spells/abilities?
    OutsiderXE
    OutsiderXE
    You need to add the wc3 dependency to get examples for the easy mode/data collections. The are no dats collections for sc2 data.
    deepstrasz
    deepstrasz
    Yeah, that's what I want, easy mode for SCII too.
    deepstrasz
    deepstrasz
    So B.net has a means of protection then?
    OutsiderXE
    OutsiderXE
    Yes, you can publish maps unlocked or locked*. Unlocked maps can be opened in the editor freely by anyone. Locked maps can't opened (unofficially you can still open them with some tricks, but the triggers will be replaced by Galaxy code (which is like Warcraft JASS)).
    I can still edit my maps, but for triggers I either have to edit the Galax code, or I have to painfully recreate all the triggers. If I ever decide to work on the maps again, I would actually try to recreate the triggers as I can use the Galaxy code as a blueprint.

    *I prevously used the term "private", but I meant "locked"

    Maybe there are some sort of convertors, code->GUI something.
    Hey man, loved your campaigns, was wondering what you think about Reforged and campaigns?

    Personally I think classic is best for multiplayer but Reforged offers a lot of cool new opportunities for campaigns at least to me personally what do you think?
    OutsiderXE
    OutsiderXE
    Hello. As far as I am aware Reforged does not support custom campaigns yet. I will buy it when it does.
    Footman16
    Footman16
    Thats what i mean i assume custom campaigns will be coming eventually.
    OutsiderXE
    OutsiderXE
    Generally I am in favour of creating any kind of custom content for Reforged graphics - only the lack of HD resources is making it tricky. Personally I would like to have SD and HD versions of my projects in the future.
    Dear OutsiderXE,

    Regarding your last post. There is a goodway to deal with such thing (other than backup ofcourse).

    what I started doing is, I put the "To Be ChangeLog in Next version" and put it in my map description before I upload the actual update. I keep update description of each change in detail, small or big. This might help.

    though I can imagine if you wrote long trigger, especially if it was cinematics.
    OutsiderXE
    OutsiderXE
    Thank you. I keep notes like you describe. But there are always some creative things I cant exactly reproduce like terrain or camera angles. At least some things were jist tricky trial and error with triggers and data, which I can make faster now. ...
    Hey OutsiderX

    I wanted to ask you,

    in campaign, are you able to rename a map? or do I have to export it and then rename and then import?
    OutsiderXE
    OutsiderXE
    Hi, I always export, rename and import. I don't know of a way to rename it directly.
    Map Designer
    Map Designer
    but that might break some stuff so i have to do it in early stages/versions yes?
    OutsiderXE
    OutsiderXE
    No. From my experience it does not break anything. Just dont open the map while it is outside the campaign editor.
    Hi I play your campaign day of the dragon but when finish chapter 5 next chapter cannot be loaded and the whole game freezes I have to turn it off I have never seen anything like this in any other campaign
    OutsiderXE
    OutsiderXE
    Hello. Thanks for the report. I know the campaign is not very stable in its current state but have never read about crashes like this. Which version are you playing on?
    magic satyr
    magic satyr
    Hi again I playing on version 1.31 I had to quit mission when campaign 5 was finished then turn off the game again and then chapter 6 was loaded but I noticed that since chapter 3 I missed campaign 4 and 5 but I had this similar problem a long time ago in campaign curse of the forsaken that some chapters didn't show up and one more thing when I played chapter 6 so its name is different you changed something in this campaign?
    OutsiderXE
    OutsiderXE
    Almost. I have a few modified units, but they always derive from a base/custom campaign unit. I don't have a single object that is specifically created in a map file. So, even if a specific unit is used only on a single map, usually it be exist in a campaign file.
    Map Designer
    Map Designer
    hmmm,
    I think that problem only occurs on ability fields. at least to me.
    OutsiderXE
    OutsiderXE
    Yes, I think you are right and then my problem was also about abilities and not units. It's been so long that I had custom data in a map file... Definitely move all your custom stuff to campaign and clone it for unique stuff. Use editor suffixes to separate them. Seems like a hassle at first but you will be glad to have the overview.

    I there! Im from Argentina, so sorry for my bad english.
    I will be very pleased if you let me translate your campaigns to Spanish. Im part of a very big Latin American Warcraft 3 Communnity and they will be very interested in undestand better your amazing campaigns, since not everyone have a decent level of english.

    Hello! This is a great offer!

    I have seen that WC3 Reforged allows the usage of different languages within the same file, so we would no longer have to create multiple files for various languages. Currently, I am also working on additional updates for the campaigns.

    I suggest we wait until we have access to these language features and my updates are complete. Then we can work more efficiently on it.

    Thanks for the answer!
    So, i will wait, but i've lost hope on Blizzard getting us what they promised a year ago :(

    Hi, its me again (It's a greeting that I always do)

    I was carrying out the translation of this campaign, 1 year ago I asked for permission to do it and I could not continue it because of problems I had, where all the information I had was lost, in addition to the updates he made.

    I was in several projects, one of which was wc3 rebirt, in Undergrund, and also, translated much of megaman zx...

    Alanmar I can help?
    hablo español, soy de Bolivia.
    So, hey, do you want to make Reforged versions for your campaigns too?
    Venombite
    Venombite
    I know :(. But at least nobody will have to create new separate projects from the scratch.
    OutsiderXE
    OutsiderXE
    Preferably there will be a toggle that allows switching between custom sd and custom hd. Maybe they created sd versions of their new hd models... Maybe I will keep the original campaigns with the old gameplay on Hive and create separate projects for Reforged. I will need to get Reforged to decide.
