    Fantastic, really improving the appeal for certain, if not most maps

    What do you mean "DNC"?
    Did you see DNC in the file?
    Where is it?

    It's a quite impressive work right there, and there are many variations too; I never thought I'd see an animated sky on Warcraft 3. Maybe I am exaggerating a little bit, but it's like switching from HDD to SSD for loading your OS - there's no go back.

    Great job!
