    I absolutely agree with you. :) Looks like someone catched my idea. ;)


    Read the answer above, please. :) And if you are not satisfied with the way I'm working, noone forces you to play the campaign or to be even interested in it.

    If you want this campaign tossed in the substandard section by all means keep using vanilla maps.

    Do you plan do use original campaign maps for all chapters in your campaign or is this only a singular case where you decided to do so for some reason?

    Not necessarily: The Scourge of Lordaeron - Enhanced

    However, I do agree that if you use a pre-existing map it should be complimented with very enhanced mechanics. Remember, there's probably not one user in this site who hasn't played the RoC maps.

    That campaign is exactly what the name implies. This? Not the same thing

    So, what? You think he's trying to cheat you? He didn't seem to have a problem admitting he took the vanilla terrain. So whatever the name implies is not a problem.

    @Zektr by the way I suggest you play the Scourge enhanced to see just how many elements can be added to the map. Second mission is a great example.

    I think it's lazy as hell and it's nothing compared to the vast rework and AI changes and 2 human and undead race revamps Teozamait did

    I'm entitlted to my opinion. My opinion is that it's a bare bones lazy as hell campaign that has units simply placed on an overland map with the cringe Calia Menethil fanfic reclaiming lordaeron that oh so many people have spewed over the years.

    talk about uninspired

    Yes, yes. You are very much entitled to your opinion, ain't no one going to take it away from you and all. I'll just point out you're basing this opinion

    over one screenshot and barely two paragraphs of text. Way to go objective criticism.

    As for that, the name is uninspired (I'd be the first one to whale on campaigns called "rise of the X"), the story is WoW based and blah blah. So are Tomoraider's campaigns, as well as chasing the dawn, and other notable projects. Talk about generic in this site, but sometimes it works.

    Why the hate? And also, why are you even talking about tossing projects to substandard section?
    It's legit to use pre-made work. Everyone does this. With spells, systems, models, icons... but that he uses terrain is big drama? There are even terrain templates out there only for this purpose. Your personal core is maybe creating terrain yourself for a map, and this is fine. But let him give credits for the work he uses, and it's ok.

    Just few words according to last lines of this text: "I have no problem to admit, that I'm quite bad at making my own terrain. And because I don't want my campaign to contain my really bad creations, I've decided to use either templates or some vanilla maps. The credits are going to be on every loading screen of every chapter. "

    I fear that @Zektr won't finish any campaign ever . This is his 4th campaign in WiP status so . . . It seems, that he allways lose his will to continue projects after 1-2 levels are finished.
