    So, i want creat a mod for Warcraft 3.
    but I have not any idea how to start it :/
    So what I wanted to know, is where do I start (for example, the creation of maps, or skin, or spells, etc.), for me to have a base and start my project.
    Sorry for bad english, I'm Brazilian and do not speak English fluently, and I missed where to place this topic I ask you to forgive me too.
    thanks for the help from ja
    Tonial :)

    Most of the people here seem to have learned just by doing stuff. I personally focus a lot on making spells. Do you have any specific idea in mind for what kind of project you want to make?

    Yeah

    Yes. I want to make a rpg map for bleach.
    Not these rpg you find around, to choose characters and they go evolving
    รจ something different that I have in mind.
    except I do not know how to start it, for example, if I start trying to create skin bleach monsters, or quest, or drop the item and etec.
    It must be very hard to do this, even more alone .. :vw_death:

    I highly suggest browsing the tutorial section. Top left corner.
    If you see an interesting tutorial you want to learn, read it and learn. Though you also need to do actual WE stuffs not just read. Experience is the best teacher as they say.

    it may take years to complete my project, because I have not much time to "study" the tools and get to work on my ideas, but anyway
    thanks! :goblin_yeah:

    If you will be the one who will also do the skins and models, then it will take a lot of time.
    If you're looking for anime models, I recall chaosrealm has a lot of those kind of models. That way, you can focus more on the map, items, spells, gameplay, etc.

    You might want to look into SC2 modding. WC3 is kind of old and dated now.

    I suggest you to start with the basics.
    You can play WoW without gear, you can play WoW without quests, you can play WoW without items, you can play WoW without abilities, you can... uhm can't play WoW without a character.

    Find the things that are required to have the very basics of the game (a playable character, victory/defeat conditions, a piece of the map where you can test out your stuff, etc.) then make those.
    Everything else can be added later on.
