    The model is significantly smaller in size than an original Reforged would be. The actual file size of this model is 19.8MB since I had to reupload all textures for portrait here.

    Maximal file size on maps for online is 256MB atm., however everything in import section gets compressed to about 2/3 of initial size.

    I like to bring the comparison that 256 is enough to bring 2 fully custom melee races into 1 map... I do hope it gets increased to 1GB, it's not early 2000s anymore, garbage texture mods for Fallout are at 1-2GB each so...

    Eyo, ¨please¨ GTFO with that stuff from here.
    I'm planning to add multiple fitting models to this pack, don't want my thread to be tainted with irl stuff.
    I'd appreciate you deleting those posts and reserve the political discussion to fitting forums/threads, thanks.

    That's a really surreal comment coming from a guy with a Moonman name and avatar but I respect the fantastic work you've done and your wishes so say goodbye to my post!

    Well thank you for understanding.
    There were people on the internet before 2016, and I care very little to what modern connotations my favourite Vaporwave song and character has these days.
    I will remove my comments after RagnarokBazil has done so and proceed with discussions of the model/s.

    The things you and the others are doing with CotSW are simply incredible! I tried my hand at making a Wacraft II remake myself in old W3 so I am incredibly hyped to see what other assets come out of this project!

    What are the issues?
    What settings are you playing in?
    FYI: shield only shows in defence animation

    I love it! I am using it for a Dalaran race as an elite knight for their faction, but I'd like to see an icon added for him.
    Thanks!
