    what do you mean with base them on? , i mean they're melee maps they are like TFT Maps but they will be updated with AOTL melee Object Editor changes.
    they should be like TFT/ROC maps but with a little more worked terrain.

    and for animated doodads just put them without animations and wc3 will automatically add them animations when opened with Warcraft AOTL.

    Alright, so I can just start a new map and not import anything and it will work then? Also, am I allowed to import some custom models of, say trees, or other doodads to enhance gameplay? Terrain tiles? If yes, whats the max?

    EDIT: Will melee maps be simplistic (like other Warcraft maps - simple terrain, creep placement, etc.) or realistic (real-looking terrain, plotted out creep placement, maybe some "special" scenario melee maps where one team is on defense other on offense?)

    and yes there will be special scenarios. like TDs and other maps like it.
    i will also add some custom popular maps to the download folder.
    they will be
    Azeroth wars LR 1.77(if they update it i will change the name).
    DotA 6.72f(if they update i will change the name).
    Gaias Retaliation 1.1i(4) (the same if they update).
    Tkok 3.0.4 (the same if they update).

    i personally think those 4 maps are best of the best (though dota isn't that good it has a good competitive scenary , fast PvP , and millions of active players).

    also i've decided that the Mod will only update normally the AOTL maps Folder.
    and only sometimes the mpq.(once every year maybe or even less because i will try to add most models possible that i think we may use in the future)....


    also i'm planning to ask for a custom garena server that will be warcraft 3 AOTL at the side of TFT.
    and also i'm trying to get a vps to host the mod PvPgn.

    I, sir, am not a troll. I am merely stating that your banner (not copy/pasted Wc3 Logo) is much like our logo. Whether or not you copied ours, I cannot say (and since you claim not to know us, I assume you'd deny any accusations).

    Wait one second and I'll upload two pictures to show what I mean.

    EDIT:

    Our Logo:

    I hope you agree that they at least look fairly similar.

    first what mod are you talking of , second if you mean of the first banner i'm planning to change it soon since i'm not that good with photoshop, third i only used a crystal background image(trying to get an ice feeling since it's based in arthas + the ashbringer). and photoshop color eyes tutorial to get the color effect and a custom font i'm not sure what you mean with copied banner.

    the only thing i find similar is that they both use a crystal background (mine is trying to aparent being ice). warcraft 3 is based in ice so i'm not sure how "similar" that could be.

    Em dark, first
    -What races you will "edit/create" like the blood elf reemplazing humans?
    -And You replace The Normals Pg maps?
    -Or you create totally or a copy of the pg maps (for the melee games)

    Looks pretty cool.

    It is lacking Leper Gnomes and Troggs, though...

    I never said you stole it, I just implied that the art style of both of our banners/logos are extremely similar.

    If you say it's only a temporary thing, then we shouldn't have much problem.

    Also, I'm pretty sure double posting is against the rules, or at the very least frowned upon.

    I could help with melee terrains.

    My terrains:
    #1
    #2
    #3
    #4

    However I do not have very much time to work in the middle of the week because of school and such, so the output rate of terrains will not be very quickly. I can do standard blizzard style melee, or I can do the no blizzcliff realistic cliffs made with slopes and doodad style of terraining.

    I think he's shooting for highly detailed terrain on the maps, but you'll have to ask him. On the other side, I also think we have 2 terrainers, which he might consider enough
