    Those things were all revamped earlier with 1.29. You have a lot of control over hiding and showing abilities and can now move around special effects directly.

    The Editor is going to be an improved version of the original Editor, not a new one.

    Custom maps would be playable, but old custom user-created models will not 'magically' convert to Reforged graphics.

    Keep working on it because its the process that brings you actual joy and not the result?

    That's what you think. Life is not easy as words.
    I guess, there would still be people who will play the classic stuff if the graphics switch can be done like with StarCraft: Remastered.

    Well if your biggest concern is about graphics, players will be able to switch between new and vanilla graphics. That way, our current custom models will be able to be used, I suppose. I'm not sure everyone will be thrilled to play with the old design when they have new graphics available, but that's a consolation anyway. As for the potential incompatibilities between your current work and Reforged, well, fingers crossed...

    Hmm, this sounds like both epic and heretic.. tho we'd better not to attack Blizz yet xD, yes there are several questions that need to be answered but I'm sure Blizzard would be answering to at least most of them! We'll see. (and of course, there is a huge worry about the custom resources and wtf should I do right now...)

    As amazing as it is to have wc3 remastered, I have to say that the new Arthas voice is really gonna bug me. Maybe it is just this scene in specific but when comparing it to the original, he feels kind of bland. Not only does he sound older, but you dont really feel the change of character here as you did with the original. Though I must admit that judging from one single scene isnt really fair

    Gonna be buying it either way, lol

    I saw the changes to the UI, well I thought that they would make a new functions for the Editor similar to the management of the UI in SC2. Anyway. XD

    Jaina's too (I think) - reply for emphasis.

    At least it's gonna be a good game (hopefully) for modding but in the future when resources start to appear (no, NOT microtransactions).

    Apart of the reasonable fears from the makers here, at least this will kill the bullcrap about "HD Mods" that are only WoW models without any optimization or style coordination, you have units from Vainilla and Heroes from the lastest expansion.

    Cross-game sounds intriguing but that also means they cannot fix wc3's many limits and idiosyncrasies.
