Feel free to modify for personal use. Give credits.

There are models in the Techtree not included in the bundle, due to issues I could not fix.

This bundle uses a total of five custom textures.

Magos' Model Editor
If a.) the model/s present an error regarding a ribbon emitter upon opening, or b.) the models go blank in-game after editing them in Magos', use MdlxConv to convert the uncorrupted file to mdl, edit the model as you wish, and then convert back to mdx before importing.

In-Game
If models with omnilights light up the whole map after conversion, make sure you're using version 1.04 of MdlxConv.

An excellent pack of unorthodox models and effect. Awesome job!

These are freaking amazing. I need to set aside some time at some point soon to properly check all of them out. I can't believe you've released so much awesome shit in one go. I was sure this is just a fancy-named 3 tier SFX, but nope, an entire freaking techtree!
The Sentinel and Arbalest remind me of some enemies fought in MU Online. Could that have been an inspiration by chance?

Those were Suselishe's models, I just added TC. They're not included in the bundle. Perhaps I'll take down the GIFs.
Thank you, though! <3

Such magnificent pack of buildings. I think, with such quality, it will even fit in the upcoming Reforged. Isn't this what you planned?
I rate this one star... five times.

This is a really awesome pack.
Excellent work!

Some notes:

- The shading on the Healing jar and the Stormbell doesn't look smooth, making the models look blocky. Simply saving the models with Mdlvis fixes them.

- Two of the squares on the faces of the Emporium's cupe are doubled/stacked, leading to Z-fighting

- I think the bottom face of the Emporium's cube could be deleted to reduce polycount, it can't be seen from default WC3 perspective anyway.

- The hair of the Channeler clips with the ring thing on her back.

It would be great if you can fix these.

Thank you for this fix! It's been bugging me for some time.
I am so envious.
You're too awesome to be. :p

Again after looking for models I end up seeing your name @Mythic . Thank you too @Spellbound , by the way.
I ended up building a new Tower model I needed using your Stormbell Onion and the rings from the Auricaster combined together, very pleased with the result.
I also used the outside rings of the Shaper, imported my "Ball" (one day I wish I could make a proper geosphere to replace this plane) model, removed the inner rings and emitters, and now I have a really nice model for my Captured Ball. It does not solve the Ball transparency (I suppose a plane cannot have proper 3D occlusion - I don't know, I am still a complete newbie in modeling), but it looks much better, and of course, using the same texture again.
Then i compressed the AtlanteanBTex texture a bit further and in the end the whole addition is nearly neglictible as The Stormbell onion with rings replaces the old Turret I modified from an old model given by Killst4r back in 2004, and thus I could remove it.

Honestly, I like the way you build your models, and I'd like to thank the people who helped you too.
Amazing work guys, really !!!
