It could be so that modding would be free since Wings of Liberty is free. Reforged is not, however, maybe Classic WcIII will be sometime as Brood War became. Not sure right now, maybe @kellym0 knows best. But it'd be a good idea to check the Warcraft III dependencies that the Galaxy Editor uses. See if those models were indeed converted to the SCII model format. If not, then that's amazing, we'll just be able to use .mdx/.mdl through this dependencies packs (something like .mpq?). Not at all. I really never saw the game mechanics of SCII sucking. The graphics, however, is a bit too glow-blurry compared to the lively Warcraft III. Brood War did quite fine, fans even going beyond limits with USME or whatever, SCMdraft and so on. Now, if they make a proper compatibility with .mdx and .blp files, we'll just have HiveWorkshop at our disposal for SCII modding. I don't think so. However, I'd pretty much love them if they'd fuse HotStorm with SCII and Warcraft III. The possibilities would be so much on the fields of Elysium level. "Life em good." You guys were making an UED campaign? Sweet. Hope you don't eff up the original lore Also, Imperia, original stuff? I'd like to see that, yeah. Let's just hope they implement custom campaigns. As I mentioned, they have no interest to shoot themselves in the foot. Probably, there's some big masterplan we're not grasping yet. Seeing how "dead" games are updated nowadays *cough, Reforged, cough*, this patch probably took years especially that they basically started using fan made stuff. They didn't do that before, or at least, not at such a level. This is a huge step. For instance Gothic 3 got a huge fan bug fix and enhancement upgrade. The company then re-released or maybe just updated the game with those things as the final/gold edition. I hope not. If they can fuse the modding aspect of these games, all is in godly hands. I doubt they are just gonna throw the Reforged assets to the bin of oblivion, not because they payed for them but because many like them. Of course, many don't but that's subjective in the end especially when it comes to modding/mapping since for instance you could use the Reforged assets for something non-Warcraft for example since they are quite different in many ways. They were referring to the graphics engine mostly and that the models won't be just simple HD versions of their previous selves. Doesn't matter. SCII's much better and will improve on the Classic Warcraft III's. Maybe they jested the CEOs, lol. What do you want to test? Install the SCII PTR, it's free. I think expecting stuff like that from the start was a bit overwhelming and demanding. If they indeed had made this move back then, Warcraft III would have lost its modding scene that was hugely active. Now, it doesn't matter anymore since StarCraft II didn't get any of the love WcIII did and it's a shame. From now on, we could give both the love they deserve. HDD space in this context doesn't matter. Modders need loads of space for their custom resources anyway. Like composers use tons of VSTs. Sweet, only not just for RTS. Join the Singularity today!
