    Well, I'm starting this discussion because I think it's extremely important and I'm not going to dance around the issue any longer. I think that with parts of the current community blocking any movement toward different styles and time periods of the content being made for WC3. We are forcing people to cater to WC3 instead of their creative endevor; that is wrong.

    I would like a serious and intelligent dicussion about this. If you would like an example of what i'm talking about, search for a car on the model forum and see if any of them can compare to cars in real life, or look for a simple man in a tee-shirt.

    Not only that, but it's extremely discouraged on a regular basis. The engine deserves more than that, and so please voice your support or disagreement here.

    On the other hand this site seems to have plenty of resources like things from star wars and starcraft for example so maybe you are overreacting?

    I doubt I'm overreacting,

    Custom content on almost every other game i've played is very broad, Look at a game like Quake 3 for instance. I'm not saying the site doesn't have truely different content,i'm saying it's completely discouraged when it isn't living in a fantasy world.

    We have what the resource makers want to build. We have loads of star wars, starcraft, feudal Japan, dynasty warrior, anime models because thats what ther resource makers wanted to build or felt like making. If they suddenly start wanting to build modern day models and material, then we'll suddenly have a lot of those, too. Its not the site, but the resource makers you should be bringing this issue up to. But if you do, they'll probably think you are just making requests to them, and they don't like that.

    there are alot of restrictions like polies and sizes and detail.
    alot of people have wc3 stuff and they dl this stuff here.
    icons are alright but using photoes on skins/models or icons is wrong.
    i dont know..hmm...this is..a tuffy..scratch's head*

    Thats a very good point, I've not really viewed it in that manner as i've kind of grouped the providers and the producers as "the site". I don't think i'm gonna ask for anything really. A rule would probably be a solution looking for a problem, and making a separate category for each type of style would get confusing and annoying after a while.

    I guess all i would like is some recognition of this.

    This was where the comments really stirred me to start this post -
