    Of course! -_o

    As the contest is ongoing I have been restricted to working on terrain. Ruined Lock has had some upgrades including:

    -Fixing submerged unit pathing in the northeast section
    -The addition of two new land bridges
    -Removal of tall doodads anywhere but the map edge to prevent air unit clipping
    -Tavern and marketplace relocation
    -Removal of creep camps from Marketplaces
    -Addition of two new creep camps

    Hi Kam! love your work, just thought id pop in and say this: the orcs dont have an ai. now i dont know if this listed somewhere but i just spent an hour making an army with 2 different actual players (my brother lost connection to the game, internet issues) and i stormed their base only to find their gold mine gone and both with just the basic setup (a base and 5 peons). now im frustrated a little bit because last time i played against humans and the lost and we (my brother and i) got smashed to bits by level 10 heroes and other tidbits. :| please fix. also i didnt know you added the naga which is what i played as (i like random) and i noticed they were slightly incomplete. again, I dont really read these forums much anymore so sorry if I have repeated something someone else said. yeah. thx for reading.

    Both of those issues will be resolved in the next release. I'm glad you enjoy the map!

    You may expect a substantial update in the next week that reflects Ken-E's thoughts and much more.

    With experimental units being reworked into standard units heroes will now be the powerful units they are in vanilla wc3. I am working on adjusting all of their ability stats to deal more damage and generally be a more significant threat. Additionally standard unit spells will have higher mana costs, longer cooldowns, and parent units will have a smaller mana pool. This is to reduce ability spam, and to aid in making heroes more valuable.

    Oh my good-golly-gosh...

    You have a working copy of Mc!'s long-lost Goblin Warmech dude! Dude, I totally have been searching for that dude for, like, a dude-long time!

    Can I get that in a Pastebin? (lol, this is your chance to force me to download a new copy of your map just so I can rip it xD). I would be mucho apreciado.

    I don't see how it was rude; Kam and I go way back, I'm sure he understands my meaning.

    More importantly, where in his post I quoted did you see something he needed? All I saw was an update of events & progress and a cool pic, with a model I've been searching for for quite some time now.

    We are good. I did not know his model was lost. I can certainly upload it if you wish but it's still here: http://www.wc3c.net/showthread.php?t=108737

    If there was one stock hero per race that you would include in my project what would they be?

    I would like an upload, because, if you'll hit that thread up, you'll find (much to your dismay) what we all have found; the file is corrupted (or something; the download doesn't work). : )

    1) Shadow Hunter
    2) Shadow Hunter
    3) SHADOW HUNTER

    4) Dark Ranger
    5) Crypt Lord
    6) Warden
    7) Firelord
    8) Goblin Tinker
    9) Goblin Alchemist.

    Update out. Please let me know what you think of the many changes.

    Edit: I had to update three maps to correct gameplay constants. Please re-download if you downloaded prior to this edit.

    Very cool. Question:

    Whose was that? Archmage Owenalacaster's, or Moyacks?

    I'm not sure I've seen Archmage's, but yes I was referring to Moyack's.

    What are the standard units you miss? I am looking to stock the Mercenary Camp with units and it makes sense based on the lore that some units would rather go independent than fight in another war.
