    Rpg... Working on some high quality models that I will use and finish them when I know their texture format.

    Yes I figured it out on 19th Feb. Gimp has a plugin to open DDS. M3 is the model, we only dont know what M3H is - too small to be a model/texture. Maybe fx. Model sizes vary from 150KB to 750KB (Maradeur) to 1.03 MB (Thor) haven't checked all.

    A footmen frenzy map just to get acquainted with the map making process for SC2. Then something more serious, possibly a zombie map or a map that toys around with FPS.

    I'm going to make a game, with a similar theme of 'Island Defense' called Planet Defenders. :grin: Or Planet Defense.

    I'm most probably going to wait until there are more models available, but if I am able to get a fast-learning modeller, I will definitely do a good LoTR RTS mod. What with all the new technology, I would be able to make Treants walk over cliffs (among Spiders and such), have some awesome effects for the Wizards, and ultimately create a decent atmosphere for the game. But that's only a possibility.

    Oh, the LOTR RTS would also be much nicer what with all the new terraining technology. I could have huge cliff cities with buildings in the abyss and so on, so forth. Or I could even not do LOTR and create my own lore. But these are all just possibilities all the same.

    You do know that the current developers of footman frenzy also is going to swap to sc2 and continue with it there?
    So you should probably change the layout of the map, and tweak it a bit, otherwise it will end up with everyone playing the "real" one, insted of yours ;-)

    I probably won't even release it, like I said, it's just to get acquainted with the editor.

    Why not? Just give the creators of the "real" map some competition :) They have no copyrights or so on it!

    The problem with this is that even if a map is better then another, they always stick with the original, that is how we humans think.
    Take Counter Strike for example, many people stick with it becouse that is what they first played, even if there is other shooting games that is better.

    I do not think people would change from DotA to another AoS map only becouse it is better, they would go with DotA becouse they have always played it.

    Especially because of that reason (Not the Counter Strike example, CS is simply a perfect, simple FPS game(game-play wise) that is the main reason I think). Anyway, because StarCraft II is new people gets the chance to make a popular map, it's incredible hard at the moment to get people on Warcraft III b.net to play new maps by themself. So this is our oportunity to create maps which will get well known in the future, because people are not USED to anything in starcraft II yet! It's one of the best things about starcraft II in my opinion.

    God I cant wait for it to come out..

    That is the dumbest shit i have ever heard?
    Is that seriously the first thing you plan to do?
    First of all, there is no custom models.. second of all, why would you need custom models that looks like shit?

    Yeah Twisting, are you unable to comprehend that it will take time before custom models actually come out? And why do you need all custom, anyway? Have you no skill of your own to create something with the resources available?
