Hi there, I'm new to the hive, been playing WC for along time though. Recently I've got the urge to learn and start to build my own custom maps.

Seeing as I am so new to all this, is there anyone out there that can help a newbie out? I want to learn how to create my own skins/models/icon ect.

Hello! Welcome to the Hive!

I can't really help you out, I usually stick to dreaming up maps and making units, but there are a lot of tutorials on the site and also a couple help sections that may let you make your own skins/models/icons etc.

I'm in the works of making my new map right now and I'm curious to know how to get the unit ability barrage to work on ground units to, can anyone assist me?
 
Welcome to the Hive, for more information on how to create/edit skins/icons/models, why not take a look in our usefull tutorial database? You'll find all you need in there for beginners just starting out.

If you have any specific questions which you can't find answers to in the tutorials, then feel free to contact me or make a thread in the correct forum about your problem at hand.

Welcome

Welcome to The Hive Workshop

The Hiveworkshop, as you already know is a "modding" and development site for Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne. It is a great place to, learn how to, hone existing skills, or even just download some high quality maps!

It has a collection of great resources, from all of these different categories:

  • Maps - Complete and functional games, ready to play.
  • Spells - Advanced spells and systems, using triggers and code alike.
  • Skins - Textures for models, they take up much less space, but look just as good!
  • Models - Custom models, both animated and non-animated.
  • Icons - Commands Buttons, Units, Spells, Items, and everything else!
  • Tools - Great 3rd party tools to make your life easier.
  • Jass - Truly advanced systems that can be used to make your maps that much better
  • Packs - Collections of artwork, of all varieties.

When you are using other peoples, ideas or resources remember to give them due credit.

Also remember to READ THE RULES. This is utterly important, and will help you greatly in the long run.

Once you have read the rules, get started on the forums. You can find anything, so check out all of them. Remember to abide by the rules at all times, and if you see someone who isn't then use the Report Post {

} If you still have problems with this user, then contact the forum moderator, or the administration.

Next, there is the chat. It was custom made by Ralle for the Hive, and hence interfaces nicely. Make sure to read the rules that you'll see when you enter it. Otherwise, banning and infractions may occur.

If you are interested in learning more about WCIII modding, don't forget to check out the extensive tutorial section. There is no shame.

If you can't find what you're looking for there, then there are a few other locations I would recommend:


There are also much more specific sections, but it would take too long to list now.

I'll now let you get around the site on your own, and figure somethings out If you have any questions, concerns comments, or are looking for some help please feel free to contact me, either by Visitor Message or Private Message.
