      Good to hear! :) I look forward to it and the official release of the MatrixEater in the tools section!
      By the way, is the extension going to be vice-versa, export and import ?
      From what I know there is no popular stand-alone way to convert to OBJ or other file types.
    2. Ardenian
      Hey, did you receive the Pastebin link and the files from Chen, Misha and me ?
    3. JesusHipster
      Hello there! Would you like to collaborate on a small tool? i've seen your weapon remover and then it came to me - using the same interface of choosing a unit and changing 1 - 4 lines of code within the model one could make a universal tool that generates effects using dummies like those: http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/models-530/customizable-buffs-276934/

      But unfortunately i don't know anything about coding. I might know what stuff should be edited in MDL via script to change the attached effect but not how to make it. What do you think?
    4. Ardenian
      Of course, that's absolutly in my interest.
      I am going to send you package via PM.
    5. WerBackIII
      Yeah, that would be rad and totally needed!

      Would you like that? Recently I PM'ed a couple of people with some instructions and resources to help them do this, but if it's lost in the PMs then only one person has access to it.
      You know you are able to see your sent emails, right?
    6. Sunreaver
      still need them
    7. Ardenian
      It would be awesome! Finally having a stand-alone OBJ plugin not being bound to
      registration or pay-to-use would make many people kiss your feet, trust me.
      Many great users of Hive, like Hayate and Zwiebelchen showed interest in the past.

      MatrixEater is a great tool, I use it over Model Editor.
      The feature to import OBJ would be awesome!
      I wait for that day!

      Hey, Retera, I see that you have some experience with creating custom EXE mods for WarCraft 3 (including the custom DLLs).

      I do assume it is not an easy task, but I could not find any information online on what can be achieved with a custom MPQ archive, library and application, nor there was info on how to do so. Do you have any tips regarding those questions?
    9. Ardenian
      Ahh, I see, I look forward for its official release!
      I am not sure whether tools are still moderated, so you might have years
      after submitting it to change and add information.
      By the way, could, in theory, the MatrixEater support file types like Obj or 3ds one day?
    10. Ardenian
      Hey, why is your MatrixEater not in the Tools section ?
    11. Sunreaver
      Thanks I would like to see a a screen shot
    12. Sunreaver
    13. Sunreaver
      Can u create models for me
    14. BlackRangerXIII
      I don't know what program Hojo uses

      Also It does look good now
    15. BlackRangerXIII
      The Bandit worker S2x one look good
      But it could use during work the animation of the Strictly peasant and it's weapon and shield can be sheathed on the back during the work animation while it uses a builder's hammer
    16. BlackRangerXIII
      Hey Retera
      Can you do me a favor:
      Can you give the Bandit axeman Build animations (If you can do it, could you add the Human Peasant's build animation), a builder's hammer and optimized animations (Like what Ujimasa Hojo is doing for some Warcraft 3 units)

      Hope you don't mind it ok?
    17. Sunreaver
      Yes i still need it,Thanks for remembering it
    18. Skyfira
      Ah, I'm in community college at the moment so you're probably much busier than I am. That being the case, feel free to send me The Risen buildings whenever its convenient for you. I'm not currently working on the race I plan to use them for just yet so take your time!
    19. Skyfira
      Oh, I also wanted to let you know that I used your Void God in my altered melee map! It's part of my demon race which i am working on first, then other races. The Void God is done but I still have a few things to finish with the race but I'd love to show it to you once I'm ready!
    20. Skyfira
      Of course! I would be more than happy to give credit to your and Glasir's work! I've actually been curious about The Risen for awhile and it gets me excited knowing that they're in the works.

    in Retera's signature, I used to have a footnote:
    "YouTube, with its hyper-intelligent suggestion API, will make all humans watch videos, reshaping their habits until they no longer do anything meaningful."

    for me, redwing.asingaurd is once you pass the threshold, that you can't really finish anything anymore, because you're not consciously making the effort to control your decisions to do something meaningful or reasonable
