    Ask Tutorials in Warcraft III !

    Welcome to Ask Tutorials in Warcraft III! So in this thread I am going to be teaching you guys tutorials about triggering in Warcraft III: How to trigger, how to import and more! I have a lot to teach you guys if you are willing to learn Warcraft III Editing - and if you have zero experience with the World Editor, a tool that is older than I am!
    It's simple, you can tell me what you want to learn in Warcraft III World Editor and I will teach you how to do it in a YouTube video on my channel! So that you can easily understand and so that I can generate views.

    Ask me and don't be scared! Just tell me what you wanna learn and I will teach you how to..... and get money from YT for explaining stuff that already has plenty of tutorials both on YT and on Hive!

    Activity: I am only online during the weekend.

    About

    This thread is about teaching you the important things in Warcraft III Editing and even more.The purpose of this thread is to let you explore the World of Editing in Warcraft III's World Editor. Teaching you everything you want to know. Just ask me and I will tell you everything you wanna know - if I know it or after I looked up tutorials myself.

    Note: Only ask for Warcraft III World Editor Questions because I do not want to be trolled!!!!

    But that's what the whole World Editor Help Zone is about, posting questions, this is making an inception out of things. Here's a suggestion: when a new topic is make in the
    World Editor Help Zone that you find interesting, make a video on it and post it as a reply, if there's already a reply then make sure the video adds something more to the topic. And please don't make us travel back in time with those Tutorials made with a notepad and copyright free music from 2002 that's blasting full volume, the tutorials for warcraft 3 on YT are poor enough as it is.

    1. Your English is bad.
    2. Your knowledge is probably subpar.
    3. Video "lessons" are much worse than well sourced textual explanations.
    4. Coupled with #1, your videos will have bad English as well
    5. We already have forums with thousands of threads that pertain to specific questions, so it's actually hard for you to create a video that's more informative than what we already have
    6. I don't understand the motivation of trying to get views for videos for a basically 15 year old dead game, if you want that, make videos about Fortnite or something
    7. Creating unstructured videos will not even be helpful in the end, since unstructured (but helpful and searchable) information already exists in thousands of threads on THW, and the information can be reached through searching

    There's an "Export/Import all object data" under File. This will only work for the object data, not the imported files, though.

    If you meant the imported files... Well, I don't know about the expanded/user-made editors, but in the original one the only way I know of is using "Export all files" in the Import Manager and then import it to another map. Note, this will require you to re-edit all custom file paths manually.

    If you're making a series of single-player maps, just use the Campaign Editor, import the object data and all files there and you'll be able to freely use it for every single map in the campaign.

    It's simply dude all you need to do is go to Object Editor and go to file then find Export/Import All Object Data, if you wan't to export the object or you want to import one. If you wan't to move a Object Data to your map then all you need to do is, Export All Object Data find a folder which you can put your Object Data, Load your map and Import All Object Data in Object Editor. Done! So simple!

    You could try to bundle starter themes and informations together, for which you think visual help is useful and then provide them as video format. Text with Q/A format is often a good format for daily tasks, but maybe it's good for very beginners to get some overview presented.
