    I like where this has gone! Great additions everybody. warman45 PM'd me to add this one: "The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable man persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man."Shaw, George Bernard...

    Map Decompressor

    Hey, I have a map I made a LONG time ago that I protected. Since then I've reinstalled my OS probably about 4 times and the newer versions have been lost in the shuffle. Fortunately I have an older version saved here on THW. The only downside is that its protected and I cant edit it. Does...

    Video/Desktop Capture Software

    Hey, Im working on an animation sequence. I have the model fully animated and I want to export the animation to a .gif file. I'd assume the easiest thing to do would be to just capture the screen while the models animation is playing, then go back and edit it afterwards. Does anyone know of...

    First skinning attempt [Acolyte's model]

    It looks good. You could edit the model later on if you decide you REALLY want to get rid of the mask. Its not a very difficult change.

    Forgotten Warlord's Attachment Shop!

    Could just edit the zergling model and create attachment models that you could put on the marine via WE. For example: This could be attached to the chest of the marine to simulate the femers. Then you could have another attachment for the gun, chest and legs.

    What's your IQ?

    Was just an example to show how ethnocentric I.Q. tests are. Most I.Q. tests target educated upper-middle class white males. If you take a German I.Q. test or an Italian I.Q. test translated to english you'd be lucky to get a 80.

    How do you stack your potions with full inventory

    Basically just make an item based off a tome (ie: tome of power, tome of agility, tome of strength, etc.) Then write a trigger so that if the unit aquires the item, and has none of item 'x' in their inventory, and they have an empty slot in their inventory, it gives them item 'x'. If the unit...

    UI Skinning Contest

    Does THW still have any good texture artists? All the good texture artists I knew (Wulf, Chriz etc.) are all gone. The whole site seems rather dead to be honest. I use to come on here quite often (under a different name) and there was always LOTS of action. A request thread took about 30...

    What's your IQ?

    It's a shame that I.Q. tests don't accurately measure intelligence - they measure your familiarity with the subject matter. (and are very ethnocentric) For example: A symphony is to a composer as a book is to a(n) A. Paper B. Sculptor C. Musician D. Author E. Man Obviously the...

    Color change of the "Shrine"

    To change it to blue you're going to have to change the particle emitter of the model, not just the skin. Amigurumi has posted a model that has the change made already. (Assuming thats the model you are talking about)

    Problem with Glowing Effect (Easy)

    Here ya go. This is it with a particle emiter. Also, heres a link to a great tutorial: Particle Emitter Tutorial Just skip the part about modeling the attachment. Edit: It doesn't appear in-game for some reason... The orginal doesn't either.

    Inspiration in a bottle (Quotes, Images, Songs)

    So I was a little on the 'unsatisfied' side today, and I got to thinking about modivation, inspiration etc. In this stooper I asked myself "Wouldnt it be nice to just buy inspiration in a bottle" I then anatomized the previous statement and decided upon creating this thread. This thread...

    Animation Request

    You could make alt versions of the models that are 50% visible and replace the original with an invisible one facing the same direction and of the same scale when a unit gets within x distance of it. Only solution I can provide - I'm not an animator. Something like: Actions Set p_hero...

    Simple Model Request!

    Perhaps it would be nice if THW added an option for model editors to specify whether or not their models can be used as "stock". IE: A model designed to be redesigned. I've noticed some saying they don't mind it being modified while others have said "DO NOT MODIY/DISTRIBUTE". The fact is...

    Problem with Glowing Effect (Easy)

    You could probably attach a particle emitter to it that would do what you're after. Also, even with it billboarded for some reason the glow doesn't show from the backside of the model. (at least it didn't for me)

    What's wrong with my cursor?

    How to fix it: -Redo your alpha (ie: delete current alpha and reselect each piece manually) -Change size from 256x128 to 128x128 (will look squished) -Import to WE and change path to "UI\Cursor\HumanCursor.BLP" Also, jim7777 that tutorial is rather dated. It uses old methods that are no...

    Creating a skin from scratch?

    What are you trying to skin? Is it a custom model? A preexisting model? You are going to need several basic programs to effectively skin; 1.) Image Editing software (Photoshop, Gimp) 2.) BLP -> TGA Converter 3.) Warcraft 3 Viewer (so you can see if you're doing it right) I'd suggest...

    Removing and inserting weapons

    You can also create passive abilities that use the model (for example; using brilliance aura) Change the target of the ability to 'self' and change the model for the effect to 'axe.mdx' or whatever your model is. Then just create a simple trigger like: Events: Unit finishes casting an ability...

    Simple Bnet question {what is the maximum host-able map size?}

    I just did something silly, but it worked. I took a map, uploaded a 4500kb file onto it and hosted it on bnet as "Wintermaul!!!!11!" about 5 people joined in 2 seconds. So I guess that means the limit is 5mb then?

    Pandaren Building4

    It's definately nice looking, but the filesize is a little large for just a building. I'm using it in my map (though I compressed the skin file to save space). 348kb for Pandarean Doodad 1 verses the oiginal 684kb. Just converted it to tga and back to blp with 85% quality. Still looks the...

    This can be done by right clicking the trigger in WE and saying 'copy as text' then in your post, click the trigger tags and paste your trigger into it. (Note: you have to individually select each event, condition, and action and copy them seperately) Also, Ap0calypse seems to have the right...

    Is there a possibility to move through walls, if there is a Window or something

    Also for the grenade going through a window, you could use pathing blockers. Set the grenade = air unit and just place a pathing blocker for block ground only at the window. Walls would use the pathing blocker for both ground and air. If we saw the system it would be easier for us to help you.

    Damn need help!

    You can just use pan camera for player to unit over a time interval. Ex: every .7 seconds pan camera for player (integer a) to unit x. Also the lock camera to unit should work, do you mind posting the trigger you're using so we can help?

    Ears and mouth polycount are still insane (especially the ears). Wc3 models don't have particularly detailed models, they are generally low polycount with good textures (relatively). For me, when I model something, I spend half the time modeling that I spend texturing (and the majority of that...
