    Thanks for this. I'll have a look at this model in-game, since it looks a lot similar to the model I already use.

    What? You want me to spoil the story for you?

    I'm sorry, but I cannot answer this question ;)

    That map was made a long time ago, when the story of Malfurion's Quest wasn't fleshed out much.

    At first, I was going to have that map included in the campaign. However, as time past and the story formed (my map making skills also got a lot better,) I decided to omit the map completely.

    Hey guys! It's time for another update on my progress towards Malfurion's Quest.

    CHEAT DISABLING

    Based on the feedback I received, cheats will be disabled based on the difficulty of the game. For each difficulty:

    EASY - No cheats disabled
    NORMAL - whosyourdaddy is disabled
    HARD - All cheats are disabled*

    * I say all cheats but realistically, I haven't made the campaign disable every cheat in Warcraft 3 because some of them are only easter eggs. However, the following cheats will been disabled in Hard mode:
    - whosyourdaddy
    - greedisgood
    - warpten
    - thereisnospoon
    - iseedeadpeople
    - ... and many more!


    HOTKEYS

    The hotkeys for unit spells, buildings, unit training and upgrades have all been changed based on the QWER compilation. This is to allow easier control over your units and armies.

    If you have custom hotkeys set for Warcraft 3, they will replace the preset ones for Malfurion's Quest.


    CUSTOM BACKGROUND MUSIC

    Malfurion's Quest will now have custom background music play throughout its missions. I have played a lot of custom campaigns over the years, and noticed that they only have one song play constantly throughout the map. However, this campaign will implement background music at a greater level by having several songs play during each map, one after the other. The amount of songs that can be played are unlimited (I can have 8 songs play in random order if I wanted to).

    Since this is a feature I haven't done much before, I will only add custom background music to Chapter 4. I will then wait for user feedback before deciding what to do next.

    At the moment, there doesn't seem to be any point of updating the Demo version. As I continue to make Malfurion's Quest, the already existing maps get continuously updated.

    Perhaps I might consider it latter on during development. However, if I do, people would expect more maps to be included in the Demo ;)

    The skin was based off a Ra skin I found on Hive. The original skin had white skin, but it was changed so it could be used in Malfurion's Quest.

    Hey Turnro how about to change Malfurion Force of Nature ability (in the sentinel story ) with Gardians of the Forests (an ability who use trees in an area to create 2-3 mini forest golems ). What you think ?

    Thanks for the suggestion kakuzu, but I don't see how Guardians of the Forest is in any way advantageous over Force of Nature.

    The chapter will make more sense once you know the story ;)

    I choose Guardians of the Forest because it will be the difference between Furion and Malfurion ( Furion Force of Nature and Malfurion Guardians of the Forest ) , somekind of upgrade .
