    I still need someone to come up with a detailed guide on how to properly export and optimize WoW models for Warcraft 3. A person with extensive knowlegde on 3D modeling tools, Warcraft 3 models and WoW models is preferred I guess.

    Gotta admit that it's not my strong suit either. I pretty much work exclusively with my own models in 3Ds Max, so I'm not even that knowledgeable in other WC3 modeling tools.

    I do not mind if database gets split, or if it stays the same with a reforge tag or something.
    However
    I am concerned about the navigation as having two model links will be annoying. Or it becomes hidden like the sc2 section.

    "Do not host assets from other games"
    Unless we have the legal rights to? I mean, Blizzard ain't gonna check all our maps of which some have models ripped from other games, you know.

    Now, does the Blizzard Legal team think they own the Hive as well as its content creators?

    Hello there! Welcome :)

    Well, we need a detailed guide on how to export WoW models (tools needed etc.) how to make them compatible with Warcraft 3, how to optimize them i.e. remove any unesscary files and animations, how to add a portrait to the model etc.

    @General Frank any input here?

    @FerSZ has already agreed to help out with the optimization part of the guide.

    Excellent! That's what we need. If approved by the site administration & modeling moderation team, it will be featured in our upcoming Blizzard Exports section under WoW Exports as a Sticky Post.

    Of course! Looking forward to it :)
    You can start working on it here: Tutorial Submission

    We appreciate your help!

    I would like to have a strong separation of our current model model base, upcoming Reforged models and WOW export.
    I'm not speaking about tags, I am speaking of a whole new section for them.
    I feel that mixing them will make some people lose faith in the current system and Hive in general, but if we manage to make every section as clear as possible to be distinguished by the kind of resources are in it should be fine.

    At first I thought that seemed a bit out of place too.
    But as I thought about it, it sort of makes sense.

    If Blizzard allows the upload of models to a third party website, it means that they support it.
    Of course they do not want support a site which hosts stolen things that they do not have the right to upload.

    I suppose they mean RIPS from other games, not a model section for another game.

    Surely otherwise, Blizz RIPs were a thing before too so, I don't think they can do much about it anyway especially when this site is one of if not the the most central Warcraft III supporting ones.

    Yeah, like the models section has two categories like #Classic and #Reforged, well, what if the model or content is for both games?
