    That may be a good idea. I just figure if nothing, at least building the map has been fun so far. Sucks that I'm having trouble make it look quite as good as I had hoped but even still, it looks better the more I work on it IMO. I honestly think what's going to happen is that I'm going to finish the terrain, or at least get to a suitable point, and then my progress will halt due to not knowing how to work all the triggers and what not I will need.

    You are probably right, I think I will hold this project to the side a little bit and work on something I might be able to finish better. I might take up my old idea with the Melee vs Hero War thing and see if I can get that to work. I will however, continue to work on this map on the side and will still post updates.

    If you need a good blue post for triggering open world in wc3 I can recommend my campaign (;D) it is not protected and you can check all the triggers if you like.

    Honestly I dislike Blizzard Cliffs (better try to make the whole terrain submerged in deep water first and use the raise tool for land, just personal preference).

    I really like the Warcraft-ish look you made. Keep going :)

    When I terrain maps I make it all start with shallow water.

    Thanks! Yeah, I realized after I was pretty far in that I should have started the map under water and simply raised the land up without the cliff tool and I just decided to go with it. Now I'm wondering if I should start with a new map anyway and this time do it under water, it's just starting over that is putting me off from it lol

    I think you understood me wrong. I wasn't suggesting that you NOT make a Warcraft 3 Map, simply that you make a world of your own. You listed the parts of WoW that you enjoy, which makes sense, but why not implement similar systems in a world of your own? You don't have to mimic WoW exactly to (realistically) make an enjoyable experience.
