    Epic, really nice job.
    Hope this one will have a good story line not like those blizzard fuck-ups.
    Sorry for my languege I had to say it.

    Happy Halloween!

    @Ralle - Thank you!

    I can't honestly say for sure, Roarman/Richie Rich and Turminator8 seem to think we may be able to start getting some out-of-team alpha testing done in the near future, but a proper release date is not something we can currently slate.
    Though currently we plan to 'release' something once we have two working races and a few melee maps (Orcs & Humans). More races would follow that, with enough resources, motivation and interest.

    Models and modellers are still (and likely to always be) our biggest problem.

    @Codric - We're currently focussing on the "modification", campaigns were initially planned and a few story ideas have been thrown about but we've since decided to focus on getting the core mechanics in place before tackling any single player segments.
     
  5. Those graphics are sexy! :O You are awesome. And probably succeeded in life.

    will this require owning sc2 or will the final version be its own program and launch etc.

    It will require Starcraft II - Even if we had the technical expertise I'm pretty sure Blizzard's legal department would have a few things to say if we ever used a custom program.

    do you think even with a disclaimer because i feel that simply launching the maps from sc2 will lessen the experience. p.s. voted

    The very most we'd be able to accomplish (even with Blizzard's permission) is perhaps a customized Starcraft II launcher -- We don't have the time, money or expertise to produce anything approaching a stand-alone package.

    As a big fan on WC3 myself and a melee player, I'm interested in this map. I last looked at this subforum about a year ago and its sad to see theres still not even an alpha out, so I'd like to help move things along. Are you looking for a triggerer?

    It's no small project, I don't think a year is 'that' long - but yes, by all means. All offered help is welcome, providing you've got the skills, time and experience with Starcraft II's editor?

  19. I love those high end models and heroes :) And wood and gold.

    Edit: Especially the implementation of the heroes; it would've been horrible to have a weakling as a hero. Imagine Tauren next to his 3 feet smaller Chieftain. I also like the lowercase a on the website :)

    Awesome! This project has given me renewed motivation to complete an old altered melee project I abandoned a while ago.

    Keep it up guys :)
