    1. Request Forum Rules and Guidelines
    2. No GAME RIPS or resource exports



    You can use this forum to request a resource(s) for your project in development.
    Note, that you can also use this forum to request animations, or .mdl editing etc. for models.

    We highly suggest you Introduce yourself to the community first before wanting a request, since this is a community and not a place to freeload off from.
    The Forum section for intoducing yourself can be found here:
    http://hiveworkshop.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=360


    Notice, that we cannot guarantee that your request will be answered.
    Our members will decide if they choose to make the resource you're requesting, it's not an obligation for them or for the Hive Workshop Staff.

    However, there are some rules which should be observed when you're requesting a resource.
    • Make your topic name of your post relevant to your request content.
    • Try to explain your request as good and detailed as possible of what you want, so people know what you're talking about (include screenshots if needed)
    • DO NOT "shout" your request out (i.e. write it in capital letters).
    • Please use clear understandable english.
    • Please try not to ask to for anything that has already been requested, and at least check our collection for you item before requesting.
    • Only request an item once! Requesting an item many times may result in post/thread deletion or more.
    • DO NOT post more than once in row, if you are bumping then please wait at least 2 days before bumping. Double, triple etc posters will recieve negative reputation.
    • DO NOT Hijack peoples threads, this is read..VERY
    • DO NOT expect or demand people to do your request, people have lives and are busy on other things.
    • The dicussion of requesting or linking to Exported game rips (Wow models) is agaisnt the rules.
    Read the rules for more information.


    The forum leaders hold the right to delete/move/edit a user's post at any time if we feel it is inappropriate or for any other reason we see fit.

    [Read before Posting] NO GAME RIPS or exported resources


    At this point I think it needs to be blatantly put forward and let it be known once and for all, that all game resources that are exported from another game (Be it Diablo, WoW, D&D, or anything else) are not allowed.

    This includes skins, models, or icons. These posts get locked daily as people repeatedly ask for game rips.

    The reason being is, we don't want our sections flooded with simple exports from someone else's game, they don't fit in with Warcraft 3's theme or artform, and the masses of them that start hording the resource sections hide the work of others who spend countless hours preparing things for you to use in your maps and mods.

    It is entirely immoral and shouldn't even be discussed, topics will be locked on sight. Let the game's resources stay with the game the artist intended them for.

    Everyone's tired of seeing them, please stop posting them.

    Note: This does not prevent you from creating your own resources BASED after another game, just from directly exporting the files from that game and uploading it here (whether you ask for credit or not)

    I know I'm not a moderator but after some searching I couldn't find a topic that blatantly says "Hey no game rips" and judging from the high number of posts about it lately, I think this needs to be said, with reasoning, my apologies if I'm stepping out of line.

    hmmm well, i_brg_doom I dont think you've got the point
    the Hive comunity is a resource for WarCraft III based stuff,

    If you export the models from another game and use it in ure map its your decission,
    I won't complain if you do so, but for my experiance, models wich are exported from other games make them way to big, or just don't fit in the game,
    and you have to agree if you think of.. lets say the StarTrek Crew visiting MiddleEarth and shooting the good old DarkLord with their phasers... just simple doesn't look right

    and to get back on the subject..
    as I said: this is a WarCraft III related comunity, so the Hive only carries models for WarCraft III, if you want to upload or download Ripped Models, than do it on another page- im sure you can find such a place somewhere in the Ethernet

    Dude, I can smell the wow model on a mile, and you are an idiot if you think a thing like that could pass by me or other model moderators. Basically, you would get banned.

    how about this, im going to make Mortal Kombat: Armageddon for Warcraft III, like i will try to get the models and draw them by hand (cuz i got a ps2 :D), it will only have the story from konquest like you no, Taven and Daegon and blah blah.

    U wont be able to do fatalities, it'll b preety much just sort of like an RPG. but u can still switch between weapons and fighting style.

    will that b allowed?

    I'm not sure if i understand this correctly but if i do shouldn't there be certain models on here that aren't supposed to be?I've seen a couple things from dnd only i think they were models of warcraft edited to look diffrent?Just to name off one theres a Drider(A creature from dnd that is half drow half spider) that sort of looks like the crypt fiend only with a glaive and is more "human" looking.

    The rules are directed at resources which are directly exported from other games than Warcraft III.

    It's allowed to make your own meshes and textures from scratch or edit models from the wc3 mpq's to make them look like characters and stuffs from other franchises.
    For instance, I used the Mountain King model with a Villager Kid head, and did some edits on these to create a model that looks likes Mario from the Super Mario series.

    Ripping models and creating models are NOT the same thing.

    what if, say, we want exports for Personal use, rather than uploading. I would like to add some to a map (not Hive based), for me and a few friends to play over LAN. Is there any guidelines/rules/copyright/terms of use that I must follow before aquiring such models? I really promise not to upload the models, nor the maps, or even slight edits of the models to this site, or any other. All I wish for is rips for a LAN based map, personal use, not public.

    If you're only playing it over LAN, why do we need to know anyway?
