    Actually you got invited because you posted a comment in a battleships map here on Hive. :) (I thought you might be interested)

    Well, I'm tired of trying to make Naval Battle popular, so I abandon it for now and completely stopped mapping it. It seems like almost no one likes it :(

    Battle Ships maps rule the bnet, Naval Battle is a failure of a map

    TKF, it is a lot easier to create a map than it is to make it popular. Making a map popular usually requires either yourself hosting it like 10 times a day for a few months, or having a core group of players constantly hosting it daily. There are many great maps created that are never marketed correctly.

    By the way TKF, you have some interesting code in your maps that I may be interested in. =)

    ragingspeedhorn, maybe you'd like to come to channel Clan BSM (USEast) sometime and try the newest version of pro with us.

    I did that same thing with missile war mod, hosting it every day over a month, but for some reason it became much more accepted. I've seen about 10 missile war maps being hosted (my ver) and I never seen any naval battle being hosted. It's harder to make naval battle popular.

    Naval battle is greater than battle ships - in your map, TKF, you can fell the real atmosphere of naval battles, like in bloody pirates. I am not autocannon hater, but I think that automatic weapons are not suitable for 19 sentury sea battles. And in your map everything is great and reallistic. I think that people just dont understand how fun is your map.

    TheImmortalOne, I might just do that. I hardly ever use battlenet.

    Thank you for the welcome, TKF.

    So this clan, is it working on any common project, some sort of larger goal? Any super-awesome-best-ever-totally-freak'ish-good battleships project?

    Well I myself played naval only one time just to know it...
    And well I somehow think I'm one of those bs players who play every mod but there are so many new version of the cool old bs maps comming out these days that I got some kind of overflow error but in a month when I finished my exymens I'll play some naval as well so plz don't stop maping just cause there are not yet 1000 people hosting it :)
    Bs adv and bm aren't hosted as well and still sometimes there are new versions released...
    Atm everyone on european server is trying to become a good cse gamer and that might take a while :)
    So just stick with your map and you'll see it will become popular.
    And maybe you should use my cpt.bot on european server and it's functions !gn and !gnall so more clanmembers from boat, cpt, ahoi, bsm and bsma get to know it :)
    But my bot isn't 24/7 online atm :)

    By the was I still wanna know if someone can solve my wc3 problem...
    Reinstalling wc3 or just the patch isn't working...
    Windows 2000 + newest wc3 patch + multiple desktop/wc3 switching seems to create big laggs and then make my wc3 look like this...
    After that I get a fatal error and have to restart wc3 :(

    Not to worry! I am quite satisfied in the SMotA Clan, TSMA. I may also follow you to Clan BsG.

    Well you are already signed up on hives so you could go and check the tutorials :)
    You should be able to learn how to make mdx/mdl files from images and therefore import them to wc3.
    And because everyone is a little lazy here the direct link to the Tutoral on Hives.
