    How to add Hero Glow


    without modeling?


    by supertoinkz


    Description: First of all, I saw many questions and request about adding hero glow on models. They didn't know there IS a SIMPLE way to make any unit have hero glow. Well, I can't teach you how to add dissipate because there are no specific evidences that you can add dissipate animations without modelling :p.

    Needed:
    +World Editor: Duh?
    +Hero Glow by assasin lord
    +Simple WE knowledge so I can make this tutorial without providing too many screenshots

    Getting Started

    First of all, you need to open World Editor (either the classic, UMSWE, or WEunlimited) then open Import Manager and import the model provided in the Needed section (If you dont know how to import it, there is a tutorial on every model here in the hive).

    Open Object Editor and click the ability tab. Create a custom ability base on the Slow Aura (Tornado). Change this:
    Data - Movement Speed Factor : 0
    Stats - Area of Effect: 1 xD
    Stats - Buff : None
    Art - Target : (The previous model I provide)

    Now give it to any unit you want to become a hero and click test..... tada!!!
    You had a new hero!

    Tips and Tricks
    You can change the model (Art - Target) and experiment with it, you can make absolutely epic ingame-only models with this.

    Nice tut, but I don't suggest Slow Aura for this, Sphere is better as it was made for such things.

    There is a map in the Spells section already for this, but I guess a tutorial could also be useful.

    Simple enough. This is very very widely used, so I have no choice but to approve it. =)

    I removed the To-Do's since it seems that you are finished. ~Approved.

    QFT.

    Is it basically geomerging? Or can you just place a Node for SFX (no wait, it's an actual texture, and the pulsing... hm)?

    If you're gonna use the fountain of health regeneration ability as the base for the glow, you should replace the sound of it with an empty file. The sound location is in abilities > neutral > anlr > FountainOfHealthRegen.waw
