    Looks really awesome and promising. But maybe add more detail of what are you working at, like what king of project it is (Campaign or single map)?
    Anyway looking forward to this. Great work on the terraining.

    Hmmmm as they're an advanced magic-based society, the gold miners, instead of mining crystals, could be channeling magic based on the undead gold mine, and the gold resource would be changed to a magic resource thing. However that may not be a good idea since it'll mess up the concept of buying items/creeps from neutral shops (buying them with eredar magic is definitely weird).

    Or have no workers at all. Build something over the mine that self extracts the gold.
    If you want miners, you could make some units that as others said, drain the gold, but from a distance without the mine needing to be changed or built upon. These extractors would use something like a Drain Life on the mine from a fair distance of max 450 range.

    Just my two cents.

    EDIT: or have the headquarters leech the gold out of the mine.

    That's a neat concept. Instead of changing the currency, change the way how you get them is far better. Since The Eredar Race is very adept at magic. Mining some gold with magic would be a piece of cake. :D

    The undead gold mine is a good idea. I would need some corresponding models for it, though. An eredar "worker" model with a nice channeling animation (like the Acolyte) for harvesting those latent arcane energies, a new version of the Gold Mine like a crystal mine of some sort (or just a huge crystal), and a new version of the Haunted Gold Mine for when the Eredar works the "mine" for crystals @Stefan.K are you up for this? <3

    Also, @Hawkwing has provided this mod with some new units and Stefan.K is also working on new units for the Eredar tech-tree.

    That looks almighty!

    Any chance to see these models in Hive's model section one day?

    Also the guy on the right of Archimonde has a dope smile

    I could try something but I would probably need some ideas. Pictures, I mean, cuz I'm not that into Dreanei race and I cannot make something creative cuz maybe it will not fit dreanei theme at all. I hope you understand. I'll look for some pictures and let you know.

    So, how is it going? No progress in half of a year doesn't look promising.

    You mean realistic? I am here for the last 8 years, and what I have learned since then is that majority of these projects are nothing more than a few fancy pictures and posts and after 6 months to a year, maker of that projects just announces that project is dead. And this looks nothing different than that. Today I have seen his new post about returning back and restarting his old project (Moria) while this project is not even in the alpha phase...

    Well, you should know that I have 4 modding projects going on that I work on from time to time. Big problem is, I'm the only one working on them. Plus I have Hive responsibilities and real-life.

    If more people would help with this, it would speed the progress up! :)

    I might just end up releasing my projects as a template or something, for someone else to work on.

    Are people still interested in me releasing this just as a template? I doubt I will finnish this project.

    I have been thinking of making a thread with all my unfinished projects for download.

    Projects like:

    Diablo 3: The Fallen Angel
    Moria: A Journey in the Dark
    Eredar Campaign: The Fall of Argus
    The Black Book
    Lands of Conflict

    Do it for the community, eitherway, who will profit from you not releasing them? an unsatisfied you and a project that lead to nowhere. At least, this way it can sprout into something fantastic with the passion of the hivers!
