The Hive Workshop has reconsidered the use of exported resources from games whose copyrights are owned by Blizzard Entertainment. If you find any conflicting rules, we'd appreciate that you let us know. The game exports rule has already been rectified. As of the 28th of September of 2011, The Hive Workshop is accepting the exportation and use — in maps or mods — of artistic resources (skins, icons, and models) from games whose copyrights are owned by Activision Blizzard/Blizzard Entertainment. Requests forum: Users are allowed to export, modify and upload resources — admitting the number of solicited items is reasonable — at their discretion. There is no policy regarding the quality or degree of modification of such exports within this particular forum ONLY. The staff decides whether or not that number is reasonable. Maps: Maps may now utilize exports from other Blizzard games. If your map has been previously rejected on grounds of Blizzard copyright infringement, you may request for it to be restored in the Map Resource Moderation. Skins: Arbitrary uploading of exported textures is not condoned. Further info on Models below. Icons: You are allowed to utilize icons from Blizzard games other than WarCraft III or StarCraft II as base images. However, every icon is still subject to the at-least-75%-freehand rule as well as the requirements of proper bordering and formatting in order to suit the destined game environment. Models: Any exported model must be formatted properly to be fitting with other models of the destined game. For example, the difference on the number of polies of a WoW-to-WC3 model and other WC3 models must not be too high, and WC3-to-SC2 models must receive proper diffuse, emmisive and specular textures.
