    Ashes Of the Lord
    Well it's a Project that will be a modification of warcraft 3 the frozen throne and will add more stuff to the game.
    and editor.
    5 main steps.
    1st. People joining and helping the mod . (it may take up to 1 week).
    2nd.Release of first info,Lore,Pics.(after the week in this step it may also take 1 week).
    3rd. Starting to make campaign/melee maps and update the thread all time with more info.
    4th. Posting what will be the New stuff added to help map makers Make 100% better online maps . . . . And this step will also recruit new members that will help with testing the Custom PvPgn of the mod.

    5th Releasing The First Alpha of the Mod.

    After this the thread will keep updating with new changes and everything
    i will try to add a custom auto updater to the warcraft mod so people wont get fatals because of different game version files.

    Expect thread updates soon. if i get enough time i may speed up everything in the mod though it will have lot of closed testing . until i can release an Alpha of the game. i may only give the mod to hive mods to ensure it wont get leaked.

    ------------------------
    if you want to post any lore stuff please if it's going to be a discusion make sure it wont last like 30 pages because i'm not going to read 30 pages of walls of text. and if you really want to help unify your ideas and then you can post them.

    So how exactly do you completely mod the WCIII game, like releasing it as a complete expansion - as it seems you did because of the changes logos. Do you still use the World Editor or? Like, I havn't seen a complete change-over of it so I have no clue

    i will release the warcraft mod entirely separated since it's going to be a separated game , that will not work with BattleNet , it will have a custom PvPgn and the logos are changed from the TFT expansion , i changed bootscreen , logo, campaign , melee maps and more stuff

    You still havn't answered the main question though. What third party tools, and is the World Editor used to make the maps?

    I would love to help then. My specialty is terraining and ideas, but I can do GUI Triggering to. It'd be a part-time job, as I'm working on my ORPG, but I could invest a lot of time in it either way.

    So anyways, whats the lore? Is it after Warcraft III ended? Does it follow the Warcraft storyline? Is there anywhere I can read up on it?

    If you are making stand alone game you could make extra mpq's and include most of custom models from hive ;o

    yes, it will have some events that were present in wow but not all , like humans will be only living in theramore and some bases that survived in ashenvale .
    Horde will be having a base in durotar and Mulgore.
    Nightelfs will have a base still alive in the world tree.
    blood elfs and Nagas will be alive in Outland.
    undeads will control almost all World After Arthas awakes.
    the most powerful Force will be Stormwind.

    it will have a stormwind campaign (6/8 missions).
    An Horde Campaign which will have (8/10 missions).
    Blood elf/naga campaign which will have (4/6 missions).
    Legion campaign which will have (4 missions).
    Undead Campaign which will have (10 missions).
    and Still no revealed campaign. which will have (5 missions) .

    Hmmm... can't say its the best choice for a custom UI, but it works. I can't wait to start working on the melee maps/campaign. WIll the melee maps be based off areas in the campaign? or should I just start making some right now?
