    Nice tutorial and you were understandable too.
    Until point 4 it was.. well.. really for newbies. More like for those who havent even started WE once^^

    The video was well made, but I didnt like those flashy effects like highlighting something or trying to get extra points by naming the mods^^ at the beginning

    Hahahhaa, i didnt add mods for extra points. I just wanted an intro with a lot of names and as i made this alone and only for hive, why not to add names of admins ;)
    I can add urs too in other tut if u want to ;)

    Tutorial Approved!

    This unique tutorial should be very helpful to newbie map makers who are unfamiliar with even the most basic features and functions of Blizzard's World Editor.

    Every slightly experienced mapper, however, will have no need of it.

    ~ Post edited to reference the .rar file. Thread moved to General Mapping Tutorials.

    It should probably be renamed, no one would know what this is about besides that it is basic and in video format.

    [EDIT by Wolve] Good call. ~ Thread renamed.

    in Unit Editor where you have those upgrades, abilities etc.. i have only these: "new custom unit", "Terrain editor" , "Trigger editor" , "Sound Editor" , "Unit Editor" , "Object manager" and "test map".. and the question is: Why doesnt i have those "upgrades", "abilities" etc etc like you have? and how can i have those?

    My friends and I play all the time together and have been for a long time so for me it's anything but dead. :) I think the key thing about this tutorial is it's really one of the only things I've found that really gets you past that "I have no idea where to start" feeling.

    Ok I was able to save it and find it, but now when I open it this new thing comes up that says, "Do you want to open or save?" so I click open and it takes me to a Internet explorer page then it closes and says "Do you want to open or save" again:cry:

    Wow awesome im new to mapmaker right now but i catch on quickly and your video helps alot.

    But im new to the forums and all but is there a tutorial on here that can answer or maybe someone else can post response (Not sure if thats breaking any spam rules or something) but anyways , my question is..

    :fp:Like for triggering the part where you walk into the circle of power and it spawns the units , i got that down , but like you left it for the action spawn for " player 1(red) " or whatever it says , well i want my friends to play also so what do i make that so whatever color walks on spawns the unit? Because i was testing , noticed the what the trigger said went to blue i walked on and it spawned a unit for red.

    You can message me the response too , im not new to forums , just these forums :grin:

    Again , good tutorial :thumbs_up:
