    This skin is amazing!! Do you mind creating a Silver Covenant skin for the Emissary?

    The good thing is I'll also be able to make Sin'dorei models from all mentioned requests (if they already didn't exist).
    Once I spend an hour per skin to meticulously crop every detail, all I have to do is change the colours.

    Now before I really go on that patch, I'd like to get an input from all who want more Quel'dorei models:

    1. Should the blue should be deeper?

    2. Should I make the silver accents appear steel like with purple tones?

    wouldn't the High Elf Swordsman suffice already? It's distinct enough for the Blood Elf Swordsman

    unless you meant the Lieutenant?

    12 years and she still doesn't have her own unique model. Sad.

    I would think the high elf archer is the worst choice to start making reforged skins for, since if blizzard ever decides to change some models, this model will likely be at the top of the list since it moves and attacks really awkwardly. But I am not familiar with how skins work, so maybe an updated model would still allow a skin for an older model to be compatible.

    Not an issue. Got Retera's Model Studio and backed up every Reforged file.
    All I'd had to do is link the textures to the model and save it as a custom one.

    Well... call me picky, but the Highelf Swordsman does have the distinct green eyes of the Blood Elves and it's stuff like that, that really boters me^^

    It probably wouldn't hurt to darken the blue a little, but overall I think you did just fine.

    probably an oversight like Anasterian's gold eyes and Sorceress' blue eyes. But I guess we will have to rely on the community if Blizzard isn't willing to fix them

    .blp is obsolete with reforged... at least nobody will use it because of the huge file size.

    See the Import path(s): near each file?
    When you imported all of my texture files into the game, just overwrite their names with what is written here.

    Like that:

    war3mapImported\human_archerbloodelf_main_diffuse.dds
    becomes
    units\creeps\HighElfArcher\human_archerbloodelf_main_diffuse.dds


    war3mapImported\human_archerbloodelf_main_emissive.dds
    becomes
    units\creeps\HighElfArcher\human_archerbloodelf_main_emissive.dds


    war3mapImported\human_archerbloodelf_weapon_diffuse.dds
    becomes
    units\creeps\HighElfArcher\human_archerbloodelf_weapon_diffuse.dds


    Yes, One could make a model which is just a copy of the original, but has custom texture paths.

    This skin is great and thank you for making it. The fact that the original high elf archer model had the blood elf green eyes and fel gems bothered me.

    Getting any more skins for Quel'dorei or Sin'dorei would be nice. Playing with an army whose units and heroes matched would be cool. Then you could choose to play high elf or blood elf, instead of the mix that it is now.

    i know it would be a bit late but:
    1) no - it would be harder to give her shoulders matching teamcolor if is there no way to get no team color at all
