Icons to Models Pack

Hi everyone. It's been quite a while from the last time I've uploaded something here.

Recently I've been working on a Warcraft 3 map, that has a loot drop system. My goal was to make every dropable item to have a different model, so the player could instantly recognise what item he/she has found. Of course, I needed lots of item models for that.

Most of the item models you can find for Warcraft are pretty low quality, so I decided to create some better quality items by myself.


I thought these models may be pretty useful, so I'm sharing them with you. :)

The pack contains 30 item models, 8 of them have some colour variations.
All the items use Warcraft 3 icons as textures. :peasant-ok-hand:
Potions and keys also feature some custom variations made by me, and they obviously use custom icons.

UPDATE #1 - 07.07.2019
▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀
Fixes:
- Boots of Speed have been resized, now they're 8% smaller.

Additions:
- Added 2 brand new models: Lesser Mana Potion [comes with Lesser Rejuvenation Potion colour variation] & Monster Lure (Kodo Meat);
- Added a colour variation of the Box: Crate;
- Added 3 colour variations of the Scroll: Scroll Of Healing, Scroll Of Protection and the Scroll Of Town Portal.

UPDATE #2 - 30.03.2020
▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀
Fixes:
- Removed unused textures from Telescope's texture list;
- Lesser Blue Potion and Lesser Rejuv Potion have been resized, now they're 10% smaller.

Additions:
- Added a Reforged version for EVERY ITEM with a custom texture.
[Since Warcraft III Reforged has all the standart icons replaced with new horrible ones, all the item models that use icons as textures look like a mess with new Reforged graphics. The 'RFRGD' versions all items will look absolutely the same as the non 'RFRGD' versions, but they'll work properly in Warcraft III Reforged]
- Added 5 brand new models: Claws of Attack, Crown of Kings, Mask of Death, Scepter of Mastery and Big Potion [comes with 3 additional colour variations];
- Added 2 new colour variations for the Lesser Potion: Lesser Green Potion and Lesser Red Potion. Both of the new variations use custom icons as textures.

A wonderful collection of items, especially for RPGs or campaigns. Models work in-game and perform well. Approved. Great job!

Big thanks to everyone for your replies and ratings! I'm really glad that you like the models. ;)

Actually, I have some more stuff for you. I'll upload it soon! :peasant-smile:

Damn, nice job. The stand animation looks a bit wonky in the viewer though, I wonder if its just the Hive end.

Remixer, I recommend you to check the models ingame or in the World Editor, all the animations performs fine there, so, it's probably a Hive Model Viewer glitch.

I tested all the models and in fact the Belt of Giant Strenght seems a little too stretched and the magic aura with the Brillance staff is not very well centered in relation to the stick and therefore the selection is a little missed.
It might also be cool to have a mana potion like it should be on warcraft 3.

Thanks for your comment!
Let's start with the Belt. When you said "a little too stretched" you've meant that it looks wide, right? I don't see an issue here, because it is an actual belt, it is not a ring or a bracer, it shouldn't be completely round, it just should be wide and oval. You see, your hips are obviously wider than your wrists.

I'll take a look the Brilliance Staff, if you think that the rune is not perfectly centered. It looks well for me, anyway.

I'll also think about mana potions, maybe one day I will create them too. :)

Wow, these are very cool! Well done!

I have to say something, though, regarding the big potion models...

b2a7b96354.png



I am pretty sure that what you modelled as a sort of "sticker" on the potions, is actually the bottom (inside) side of the opening, with the cork sticking out on the "inside" of the potion bottle. Your depiction is curious, though, I've never seen the potion icons in that way. :)
 
I could chip in my comments:
Boots of Speed look a bit too large compared to the other items (they are bulky which is okay, but the overall size could be tuned down a notch).
Health Stone emitters are going a bit too strong, hard to see the actual mesh behind all that glimmer and glitter, the mesh could also be tilted a bit more.

Then some meta-critic:
Some of the items become unrecognizable when they turn around (e.g. amulet of spell shield), perhaps other kind of rotation animation would be more practical (so that the model does not turn around completely)

I'm talking about that. It's not really important but you can see that the aura is not very well centered ^^

Yeah, maybe they should just turn left and right? not completely around?. Would make more sense, and would be easily recognizable ingame, since Warcraft is kind of set to a certain angle, too.

Epicxx :eek:

There are a few button icons that aren't quite clear :p. Might just be me, but the Critical Strike icon always seemed like an axe. Then I realized it was a blade rending through flesh :confused:

Thanks for your comments once again, guys!

Well, I don't want to dissapoint you, but you were not right about these potions all the time. :) Let me explain it with this image:

I've used the Rune model (Objects\InventoryItems\Rune\Rune.mdx) as the base for all of my models except the Box. So, my items should fit this classic style that is also used by some other modelers, like Matarael.
Even if some models look quite different from behind, I definately won't change the style of their animations.

See, even with that mega-zoom, I feel like an argument could be made for Deolrin's viewpoint. Like, they angled the bottle (& I would argue it was done specifically for this purpose) such that the liminal edge of the glass bottle is *just* visible apparently bisecting the stopper. Yet the bottom of the stopper is still aligned in such a way as to be visible at that angle.

ah dannae.

Counterpoint: OK so if it's not the bottom of the stopper, what the heck is it? I can't accept it's just some random sticker or badge.

Very useful! I always felt something like this should've come with the base game.

I'd only suggest to update the previewing images so that each icon follows the order of the models, as they appear.

I can't load the small blue potion (not the one in this picture but the other one), is it just me? I haven't seen anyone else pointing this out. And I think you forgot to upload the icon for the large blue potion?
Other than that it's really really nice, I haven't tried them all but those I tried that's working are amazing :D I just have one request - can you make a green potion aswell like these in this picture?

Let's start with the names. :)
There are Small Blue Potion and Lesser Blue Potion. The Lesser one was uploaded with the 1st update, it's also pictured in the image you attached to your reply.
So, you're talking about the Small one for sure. If it's not working for you, you probably didn't import its icon to your map or you've imported it incorrectly. Please check the icon import path.

I didn't forget to upload Blue Potion's (sphere shaped one), coz it is Warcraft 3 default icon, but it is hidden in the World Editor. Just paste "ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtons\BTNPotionBlue.blp" to the icon name section n your Object Editor.

I can also say, that I'm planning to update the pack one or two more times, so I'll add new items to it. And I will definately add Lesser Green Potion and Lesser Red Potion to it, so you have to just wait a little bit. :)

Yes that's right the small one. It's imported correctly but it doesn't work, the other models are working fine and is imported in the same way so I don't get it. I've even tried to redownload it and import it again but still doesn't work, what version is it for?

I can also say, that I'm planning to update the pack one or two more times, so I'll add new items to it. And I will definately add Lesser Green Potion and Lesser Red Potion to it, so you have to just wait a little bit. :)
I'm very pleased to hear that, thank you! :D
