    I would like to create my own models and icons for my campaign. Are there any tools or programs that I could download that will give me the ability to create custom objects? Or at least customize pre-made objects? What I am really looking for is something that will allow me to make models and icons from scratch. If there is such a tool or program, please tell me. Or at least suggest a tool or program that allows me to customize pre-made models and icons.
    Thanks in advance!:D

    For creating custom models there's a tutorial:

    I've tried more than a few times but I never managed to go through all the steps, maybe you can, looks impossible imo
    As for icons, get an image extractor frmo the tools section and you can use photoshop or whatever to make icons for the game.

    Button Manager v1.8.2

    Create a 64x64 image and put it through that program, should work and make an useable button.

    Thanks for help guys.
    But on a another note: When i download Models off the Hive and try to place them on a map, I keep receiving a message saying: could not load file...
    Is something I'm not doing right? I have the downloaded models and icons in my Warcraft III folder and to use them in editor I first use import manager to import which models I want to use. Am I missing a step? Icons also don't work.

    The models will appears as green and black boxes in the model editor, but work fine in the game itself. As for the icons, make sure you get the custom path right, can't remember it off the top of my head, but a simple google search will do.
