    The militia helmet is kinda teared and Blizzard forgot to remove the alpha in it's helmet since it is based on the peasant skin.

    Wow, I never noticed this. It isn't so noticeable =P I guess that's why they never fixed it (or did they?). :grin:

    Probably a result of a last minute change, an oversight or even intentional as the original texture had to go.

    I'm almost certain it was meant to be teamcolor. They probably reused the texture from some older model they made and forgot to change it. Alternatively, it was either intentional(the blackness looking like paint or something) or a result of a bad wrap job. I'd have to take a look at the actual model to be sure, but I do recall checking it out a long time ago and wondering about it as well.

    In most cases, black textures probably mean they were supposed to be teamcolored, but someone either forgot to texture the TC or forgot to change the material to one with teamcolor. I think that's very apparent on all of the Alliance heroes displayed above.
    As for the floating cloth on the Mountain King, I'm pretty sure that's just an issue in Magos, and in-game it is fixed.

    I'm really sorry I haven't been updating this anymore. Remember that this is a joke thread and not meant to demean Blizzard or something of that sorts. It also serves as a reminder to other modelers who use meshes from Blizzard's models not to carry the bugs over.

    Theory is that the mana-crystal was an 'regenerating food resource', since it would be silly for walking dead or astraplanar demons to engage in farming business. Instead farms you would have each building accumulate mc over time(probably with an upper-cap to prevent infinite army), which then must be given out on a per unit creation basis. The more advanced an unit is the higher mc it redacts on creation, with some spells dependant on it too to complicate things even more.
    The closest you could get near this idea today would be to give each building a manabar, somehow find a way to link the regen of each building, then handle unit creation via summon type spells instead regular build.
    I think you all can already see why such a thing had been cut out.

    Edit: Didnt first post contain alternate button for steam tank ? :p oh i need one with cannon instead chain-ball.
    Edit 2: I know both buttons are ingame, however 2. is based on a different chassis than 1.
    Since im using Steam Tank as morphing upgrade(similar to obsidian sphinx->destroyer) for wagon with chain would rather require one that displays roughly the same shape but with a cannon.

    Mana Crystal
    [​IMG]

    Mana Crystals were used to be used as a purchasing items and learning / buying hero spells. It was dropped as a xp-like resource upon creep / neutral hostile death. It was possibly also dropped from heroes upon death.

    Aha, so, that is the mana-crystal. Then what was called the resource with health-stone button seen at some of the undead screenshots and what did it do ?
    So if i got it right just zerging the creeps wasnt enough for advancing the hero, past a certain point you had to kill theirs and if lucky, one would drop so you would advance, and since basically everything of an use in the shop shares the same resource you would have to choose between getting an better item or a better spell.
    What was the purpose of the Thieves' Guild, is that where you could convert gold into lumber ?
    Also since you seem knowledgable enough, when did the favoritism towards Nelf race began ?
    Sorry if i sound annoying, im deeply interested in what Wc3 couldnt become, always thinked and sometime even experimented about how things could have been.

    You ask me on skype and then post here what I told you, instead of just telling me that I gotta post stuff online? You didn't even mention that someone asked here. I would have quickly looked up what my sources are...

    The wrecking ball steam tank model is included in the Battle.net Beta of Warcraft III. The variant seen in the Korea video is a lot closer to the original concept art, which seems to have no weapons at all.

    EDIT:
    Nope, I'm the one to ask.

    I don't know, actually, but these icons do exist, so maybe you are right...
    There's almost no info available about the thieves guild aside from its icon and model.

    Night Elves were announced in late 2000, but leaked on a catalog poster a few months eaelier in France. First screenshots are officially dated to December 4, 2000, irrc. The Night Elves were shown in the Warcraft 3 preview by Inside Mac Games on May 21, 2001, but already appeared on many some earlier screenshots (but usually weren't the main focus). The screenshot set dated shortly before the Inside Mac Games preview is (afaik) the first to feature Night Elf buildings. I don't have dates for that set, but I'd estimate it to late April 2001. After that, the Night Elves moved away from focus.

    EDIT:
    Seriously? You're now denying it?
    EDIT2:
    @post below. You're not a moderator (as I just wrote on skype aswell)
