    Blizzard Speaks out about Warcraft 3: Reforged

    They should never have announced a pre-order at blizzcon. A preordered product can't be delayed more than 12 months from star date of the preorder campaign ( should have been released even earlier than february).Basically forced to release it early.

    By the way are pandas anywhere present in the expansion? Like helping in the fight on both sides and stuff?

    Legion Discussion

    I am sure when people overcome her death blizz will bring her back as some spirit/vision/reincarnation etc. I mean I did chop Cenarius down back in warcraft 3. Blizz does indeed milk old characters a lot.(endlessly) I think by the end of the expansion another major 'player' will die, either...

    Legion Discussion

    Watching all the ingame cinematics I feel they are a lot less intense than the ''all-out-war on Draenor'' WOD had. The best ones were the Broken Shore. I was expecting Illidan or Guldan (apart from the bs ones) to appear in at least one cinematic. I guess we will see them next year when the...

    Mod that converts map to .exe

    Do you guys feel that if a mod/engine allows world editor to convert a map to an .exe file, like most game making software nowadays , making it a solitary mini-game the mapping community (at least for some map types, mostly single player) would be more interested in the editor again. I was...

    So... Where is that little fcker Wrathion helping in the fight against the legion? Considering he concocted a whole expansion and is the reason for that mess in the first place.

    Malicious Redirects - change your password

    I was getting an error trying to enter the website so I used a french IP and the site loaded normally. I thought my country was specifically getting blocked, lol. Seems that wasn't the case.

    Pokemon Go

    Never gonna play it just because I am aware that I have the attention span of a goldfish and will probably fall off a cliff or get ran by a bus. To be honest it does look a bit like a body snatchers/invasion episode outside on the main streets where the pokemon-stops are. Everyone is on their...

    (Hero) Boom Squad

    Please tell me they got an animation where the guy with the shield goes infront of the other guy with the human footman ''defend'' stance. edit: Ah alas I saw it in the 3d viewer that they don't. A shame. ;)

    Have in mind that a techtree contest just started and plenty of people are working on it (altho probably 75% will drop it midterm as usual :D )

    Voted for Naze on a screenshot basis. I will test it tonight when I get home and hope there will be no places you can walk through or ground where you sink under the texture.

    Techtree Contest #11: Theme Poll

    Not sure who are you talking to but if memory serves, previous paired contests still had the ''work in teams'' to be optional.

    Techtree Contest #11: Theme Poll

    After browsing for fitting models for about an hour for a whole techtree 'techno-magic' i am officially worried and probably at the door as you are. (on another note, is the xgm website down or deleted, I cant seem to find it anymore altho last time I visited it was 3 years ago)

    Techtree Contest #11: Theme Poll

    It means more time wasted on waiting for the other guy to reply/test/give ideas (which also goes both ways). It IS more work considering you have to stop your progress and wait for a response from another person. Like I said before, unless you can get a good communication channel with another...

    Techtree Contest #11: Theme Poll

    Believe me as a guy who did a paired techtree contest, it only complicates things and actually ends up taking more time because you constantly need to communicate with each other and allign your ideas together.

    Techtree Contest #11: Theme Poll

    I would suggest even if it doesn't end in a draw that another poll is made with the top 3 choices so people who voted for the choices that didn't make it to the top 3 can recast their votes. We will get a better picture with the results that way.

    Oh. That was just my actual idea of the working techtree I would go for. Probably a bad example :D

    TechTree Contest #11: Theme Discussion

    If you'v watched or tested techtrees on previous contests most of the time people have a harder time making a balanced race and instead finish with a overpowered/underpowered one almost by default. I find it difficult to believe that once the actual idea is aimed at that result, people will find...

    TechTree Contest #11: Theme Discussion

    Well I meant a faction that is to be played in handicap matches like 1v2 OR a supportive faction that is meant to boost up another classic faction but falls short in 1v1 so it must be played in a handicap aswell. I am thinking of a whole faction that is (by some lore) disalowed to harm/kill...

    TechTree Contest #11: Theme Discussion

    Wow the hive looks nice! I accidently saw a techtree contest is taking shape and if hopefully I get some free time to come up with an entry. Altho I am very rusty on the editor ;) The main issues people/judges had with previous techtrees were overpowered/underpowered units so how about this...

    Converting a whole map

    Hey guys! Haven't seen dem' hivers in a long time. So here is the deal A friend of mine got funded for a board game prototype for which I was wondering if it is possible to convert a whole map in wc3 to a single model(64x64map) to be 3d printed and hand painted? 100% of the models are...

    Iceborn v1.9

    I am happy to see this great piece released! Maps like this make me feel the creativity and determination in the WC3 community is not quite to its limits yet. Still manages to amaze me after so many years. When I get the time I will gladly run this great and engaging game one more time. It...

    Mini-Game Mapping Contest #8 - Escape

    What do you mean if he made them? Can't we use custom models? It is said in the first post that custom models can be used as long as their creators are credited. :eekani: Have I been scrapping futuristic models for two days for nothing?

    Mini-Game Mapping Contest #8 - Escape

    Have you forgot about me wretches?Bashanofanofala! I am joining this contest. My entry will of corse touch the dark corners of the gaming and will utilize the dusty Xenomorphs models from Alien. Hopefully I will get a screenshot wips by the mid of this week.

    BranaR's Terrain Showcase

    Inspirational work! The graveyards are just smexy. p.s. IMO screen 15 will look much better without the gravestone-looking doodad. p.s.2 Anyone can PM me the links of the fat model pack, I can't seem to find them on xgm anymore. Yet again I am terrible at searcing.

    Grow in the area of Starcraft 2.

    I always fear that when starting a starcraft2 project , a new expansion will come that will fuck up the editor, the map acceptance by the battle.net servers, change million things and make maps on older versions unplayable. I don't know if that happened when HOTS was released but I got my...

    Help - Making Eggs hatch At full mana.

    Well that's more like a cosmetic buff that is up to the author of the topic. I personally prefer to resize the unit with small percentage like 10-15% and make it darker with color tinting. The periodic one takes another trigger if meant to be properly made and I am lazy as hell.

    Help - Making Eggs hatch At full mana.

    That would only spawn new healthy spiders. What if he damaged the first one, that lost health will have to be transfered to the second. And that would not really look like it grows, killing a small spider to spawn a bigger one would look like a chest buster from Aliens on reverse.(sort of)...

    Help - Making Eggs hatch At full mana.

    How about making a dummy spell that the AI will cast once it reaches 100 mana? In my experience it works with a negative health regeneration like -0.1 or something and a self healing dummy spell. When it's cast kill the egg, spawn a spider with 0/100 mana with mana regeneration. When the...

    Reduce the Cooldown using Trigger

    Oh I'v done this before. I made all 5 skills of the hero (it was a single player map so it worked fine there) have a triggered cooldown with timers and integers. The timers displayed in a multiboard and when a skill is on cooldown, just disable it or replace it with a skill with requirement...

    Warcraft 3 Terraining Class

    Hello everyone! Just a quick note. As I got unplaned new work to do at my real job I will be unavailable for as much as the end of the summer or even more. That is why my lessons (along with canceling the judging on the past mapping contest:farming) will be delayed for quite a long period. I...

    About Warcraft 4

    oh... it's THAT topic again. Warcraft lore is torn and wore out like a 10 year old stinky sock... I would really prefer to see the so called Titan to be a fresh RTS on which to work in the future mapmaking communities.

    Terraining class introduction

    As I said this would be troblesome for me as my laptop is not capable of producing good video. It will probably be with low fps and bad quality at most. That is why I will do my lessons mainly in step-by-step explination much like some of the tutorials here on the hive.

    Terraining class introduction

    Things will get confusing as the lessons increase.
