      Hey Tomoraider,

      You made an awesome job in creating both the campaigns. I came to know about it a week before and done playing both.

      I'm a hardcore fan of Warcraft and I'm don't have interest in reading. I wished that Blizzard should come back with Warcraft IV continuing the story from TFT but that didn't happen and I prefer story based on Warcraft 3 style than WoW.

      Then I came across Hiveworkshop and landed on your campaign and I was like OMG the sequel of Warcraft 3 Campaign exist. After intense gaming, completed playing CotF and currently in the last chapter of RotB. I seriously liked the way you brought the story and I really enjoyed playing it.

      I request you to continue creating campaigns based on the actual story line just the way you did CotF and RotB or if possible, create campaigns of Warcraft I and Warcraft II just like Warcraft III play style with Heroes' perspective, cinematics, dialogues.

      Good luck and eagerly waiting for your upcoming campaigns.

      Hi. I love your campaigns but I'm currently having a problem with the Forsaken one. In the beginning and throughout the campaign, the "Town hall", the workers, and the guard towers are completely invisible D: I'm updated to patch 1.30.

        Hey, did you figure out a solution to this issue? I haven't honestly heard of anyone else having this issue before.

      Have you ever considered writing a tutorial for mapmaking? You're really great at creating blizzardish terrain. Also your levels are very well designed.

        Thank you! I don't think I'll be doing that, though.

      Can you tell me if I finish map in 1.27 patch, and after that update my game to a newest patch, am I going to have any problems with opening that map, and also using it?

      How can I make one additional unit to spawn from the building at the same time as the first unit. Like what you did with Dark Rangers and Black Spiders?
      1. tomoraider
        tomoraider
        Check the triggers inside the maps, basically when the Dark Ranger is trained an additional unit is created and is set to follow the Dark Ranger.

      With WC3 being patched alot in the last year(s) what are the DEFINITE wc3 versions to play your campaigns each (no bugs/sound/cinematic/model issues)?

      (my guesses)
      CotF: 1.30.2
      RotB: 1.28.5

      People really love your work but seem to use the wrong versions. Please enlighten us.

      Thanks for your time!
      1. tomoraider
        tomoraider
        CotF works properly on that version and all that came after (so far). There are a couple of issues with sound I could not resolve 100%, but it's barely noticable.

        I believe the latest version of RotBE is 1.28.5, so it should work properly on it. All versions that came after have a broken UI (because of widescreen) and the blood knight's skin is broken (since its path changed). There are probably also a couple of sound issues, I have not tested the campaign thoroughly yet, so I'm am not sure, but there are very few custom sounds used in RotBE compared to CotF so it should not be that noticable. I plan to fix all that sometime soon.

      i have questions, can i use your techtree for Blood Elf and Forsaken? i want use this for my companion, but i want too change a lot of( e.g. only worker(forsaken) can collect lumper).. If u dont want tell me, i will create myself, but i want rebuild all race. I want have 10 race(Unded, Horde, Human, Night Elf, Demons, Fel Horde, Dwarves, Naga, Forsaken and Blood Elf), so when i can use your techhtree, this will be a lot of help for me

        Yes, you can use them in your project, unless your project is a melee map.

      Soooooo Rise of the Blood Elves update when? I hope you can find a full resolution of the UI. The map is fine but the UI got butchered lol.

      Hi,I've been translating CotF v3.0.1 into Chinese since the day you released it.It's almost done though I still need your permission and revision.I would also like to know if you have any plans of updating CotF recently.If you do,I'll wait for a while.

      May I have your email?I'd like to attach a copy to you as soon as I finish translation.

        tomoraider
        No plans to update CotF at the moment. I'll PM you my email, send me a link once you're done so I can add it to the campaign's description.

        You will need to download a new updater for WC3.

        https://www.gamepressure.com/download.asp?ID=69710

        go to that site and you should be able to get the "new" update or whatever it is.

        I had the same problem, i dont think Blizz updates the game any more, its all fan based.

      Just finished your CoTF, it was really challenging and awesome. Thank you for your hard work! Looking forward to finishing the rise of the blood elves. Do you have any plan to make more custom campaigns?

      Greetings Tomoraider, new fan here. I found out about your campaigns from watching Jayborino play through both the CoTF and RoBE. I have been playing thru the CoTF campaign and its has been fun and challenging.

      I will give the RoBE a go next......prolly should have done that one first, timeline wise......but oh well........

      At any rate. i was wondering if there was a way to play as the Blood elves and Forsaken in the custom games rather then just in the camps??
      1. tomoraider
        tomoraider
        Hey, hope you'll enjoy RotBE as well! And no, there isn't any way to play them in custom games.

        .......Is that a limit on Blizzards part???? or just something i'm missing....hoping for the latter.

        But anyway, i kinda got off beat and started playing RotBE, and been going strong on it, love it, the only "real" complaint I have with both is the lack of trees.....kinda run short on lumber in the "Starter" areas a little early it seems like.....might just be me.

        Other then that, im lovin the camps so far.......Hoping there might be a new one in the work.....Night Elf.....Dranie......

        Maybe???? But if not, oh well.
