    Ok first of all warcraft 3 is the BEST GAME IN THE WORLD!!!!! i play since i am 6yo and i have seen so much wonderfull things during these years on warcraft and myself i am creating some crazy projects but i will get straight THE MAP SIZE LIMIT i mean seriously .....ok we can make map transitions at infinite like rexxar campaign but i mean for exemple azeroth wars lr reborn etc...... it can be even beter if the map can be like 600x600 800x800 or even 1000x1000 and yes dont say i know that the wc3 engine cant afford that but i mean if we make like a total new warcraft system that dont have limits at all...i mean i am making a loap style gang war which has 10 city i draw it on a paper and it sems so awesome but when i put these "cities" on the wrold editor they were not enough big like on the paper (btw i am still making this map and i finished 1 city) so it is such a shame ayway thanks for your time and sorry for my english plus i am sooo tired good day Warcraft 3 FOLKS!!!!!!

    You're basically asking for a whole new game to be made. This isn't going to happen. It's already a miracle that Blizzard decided to revisit Warcraft III and work on it again.

    Blizzard isn't exactly willing to divert resources to the development of a new game and engine, and people in the community don't have those resources to begin with.

    Either way, it won't be Warcraft III regardless.

    If you get JNGP 2.0 working in an old patch, then you can extend map dimensions to at least 1024x1024.

    What? 1024x1024 is too small...
    Ask for a 9999x9999 map size for cosmic worlds with tileset support over 60 tiles.
    Are you Kidding?
    Since when making a new map with a specific size requires you to use jass?

    Sure go ahead and make one. However be aware that Warcraft III engine was written by a team of highly experienced game engine developers over 2-3 years based on work they spent 4 or so years doing before then.

    As a solo individual with a degree in programming it might take you around 20 to 80 years to get an engine into a similar or better state. You will almost certainly need to recruit people to help.

    WELL JUSTEMENT NO CUZ NO ONE HAS DONE THAT and i dont get it why imagine an azeroth wars map with 10x more details and factions thats just heaven and for exemple no need boring long transitions betwen maps for rpg and rexxar campaigns like you know but then the problem will be the tileset limit but thats another topic

    (sorry for english speakers :peasant-thinking:) je pense que c est dommage que personne n a pense a ca a present car avec ca il y aura encore plus de portes ouverte que maintenant meme si effectivement avec warcraft 3 actuellement on peut deja faire enormement de chose surtout avec la mise a jour mais tu vas me dire ben c est plus ssimple d aller sur unity ou je ne sais quoi sauf que non deja je suis une merde en script et tout le tralala et surtout warcraft 3 c est un moyen de creation tres simple et rapide si t as une idee qui te passe par la tete comme che pa moi genre refaire une ville dans la realite ou je ne sais quoi ben tu peux tous les modeles sont a ta disposition en plus des customs ones sur hive etc.... et t as que a poser tes batiments tes doodas bref c est tres simple a manier et difficile a maitriser et ce genre de truc manque enormement dans les jeux et pas que ceux de mtn mais vrmt tt en general

    They usually last 5 to 10 seconds. In fact loading in to them initially is faster than when it loads them from a save game.

    I am also waiting for such an example. I suspect many people were confused about the 480x480 map size limit and just made up some large number.

    I suggest working with the limits. Far more likely to get something done than hoping that they might eventually be raised.

    As it stands 480x480 maps are insanely huge. I have never seen a multiplayer map that large used properly. Additionally the performance of such maps is questionable at times. It is well known that blight breaks around the edges.

    Isn't Gaia's retaliation that size?

    Also @BladeMaster3 (TVWK) come on man, make an effort... It's not THAT hard getting JNGP to work. You're talking about it as if it's the hardest thing in the world, but anyone who can comprehend basic English can easily do it.

    This is your problem right here. Nobody is gonna hold your hand and cater to your laziness, so if you want to do something you'd better get off your ass and start doing it.


    EDIT: Also I'm not really sure if it's feasible as particles (as far as I know) won't scale, but I guess you could scale all units, doodads and everything else to 1/4 of their original sizes, and then set camera distance etc. to a lot closer. Tiles would of course not look very good unless you have some custom made tiles, but given enough work and dedication it should be possible to at least simulate a bigger environment than 480x480. This has to my knowledge never been tried, but as far as my knowledge stretches it should be possible if you can overcome the hardships you will face when attempting something like this.

    well the problem with the unitsize reduction is that i need to modify the spell size too etc.... to much work for a minor result

    You can make spells and projectiles scale with the unit scale. You can also manipulate special effect sizes, and special effects that are attached to units will also automatically scale with the unit size.
