      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.

        Hello. You may do that. But maybe wait until release of 3.0 next year...

        Thank you very much.
        What to wait for 3.0, do you mean the next version of the campaign?

        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.

        Ah. I thought you made the changes for chap 1 on it, that's why.

      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?
        Jul 21, 2020
      3. 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.

      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.

        Do you know how to work with that nightmarish Data Editor, especially on spells/abilities?

        You need to add the wc3 dependency to get examples for the easy mode/data collections. The are no dats collections for sc2 data.

        Yeah, that's what I want, easy mode for SCII too.

        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"

      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?
      1. OutsiderXE
        OutsiderXE
        Hello. As far as I am aware Reforged does not support custom campaigns yet. I will buy it when it does.
        May 19, 2020

        Thats what i mean i assume custom campaigns will be coming eventually.

        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.
      1. 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?
      1. OutsiderXE
        OutsiderXE
        Hi, I always export, rename and import. I don't know of a way to rename it directly.

        but that might break some stuff so i have to do it in early stages/versions yes?
        Apr 19, 2020
      3. OutsiderXE
        OutsiderXE
        No. From my experience it does not break anything. Just dont open the map while it is outside the campaign editor.

        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?

        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.

        hmmm,
        I think that problem only occurs on ability fields. at least to me.

      4. 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.

        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?

        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.

      Hey man, I just noticed you're working on some major updates for your campaigns. In case they're still being used, just wanted to let you know I'm going through my old resources and fixing/improving them, although it will probably take a while to do all of them.
      You can find them here: https://www.hiveworkshop.com/threads/loktars-resources-projects.314303/, There's a changelog near the top with an overview of the updates. Stuff that's only "optimized" or "sanitized" is probably not worth the effort of replacing them though.

      Looking forward to your updates, haven't played the campaigns since back in the day and I'd love to revisit them :D
