Battle for Lordaeron V 4.0 (Map)

Too bad races are fixed. You should let players decide which faction they should play with. Also, you can't choose another colour. Not sure what the middle zone's purpose is since there are mostly if not integrally human units and buildings there...

    1. Too bad races are fixed. You should let players decide which faction they should play with. Also, you can't choose another colour.
    2. Not sure what the middle zone's purpose is since there are mostly if not integrally human units and buildings there which only blend in with the human player. Maybe, neutral hostile and/or campaign units from all factions instead?
    3. House of Magic and Anti-magic have the same icon. The buildings also look alike. Either another model from the game or a custom one. Well, it has another colour after being built. You could then change the hue of the icon with these:
      Button Manager v1.8.2
      BLP Lab v0.5.0
    4. Why not make a way to just convert a percentage of a resource type to another instead of having to wait for the 100 as the limit? It's problematic because you buy 300 gold and then remain out of lumber for a while. This makes things go slower.
    5. Maybe you should find a proper model for the leader since it's a blue RGB unit and doesn't look really nice among the others.
    The map thread description should be improved.

    How to Add a Screenshot to your Map Description

    • A credits list in the map thread description is required where the names of the resource (models, skins, icons, spells, sound etc.) authors are mentioned along with the specific resource. It would be a luxury to have links leading to the used resources. Credits in the Quest Log would be appreciated too.
    • A detailed changelog in the first post would be helpful to reviewers and notify fans about the newest implementations to your map.
    • Map thread tags are important. Please use those that fit and not more or none.
