    By the way, I just watched that video grey posted about the possible way Wc3 was going to go, and I think it's brilliant. I would highly suggest following that path for PART of the campaign.

    The reason I say part is, because it is such a different and big change it wouldn't be smart to alienate the RTS aspect so much. Instead, I believe we should have rts missions in the campaign with RPS missions inserted between rts missions.

    So for example, one mission is a big RTS mission and when you complete it, the story either changes or goes into detail involving a hero/main character or a small party.

    Wings of Vanity/Liberty. Right. Blizzard does have a lot of creativity these days, aight?
    What you said makes sense. Maybe Kerrigan's part Arthas part Sylvanas. Her part sylvanas was a excellent soldier, transformed into a monster by fate, and desires to return to its previous form, although using up all the power of her current form. As Arthas, after transforming she completely lost her mind, and began amassing a enormous and incredible force, and may or may not want to return to its previous form. Although it is hard, since he teorically lost all feelings and etc. Also, wouldn't Blizz's WC4 follow up after WoW? It is strange to create two separate, alternate storylines. No one ever did this before... Did they? Not a video game company, I mean.

    Yep, the dwarf is using the Ghost animation, 1 thing bathers me of it, that there is an additional "death" animation, but it is stored into another file ( ghost_death.m3 ) and I don't know (yet) how to add it to the model in the editor...

    Thnx for the comments guys

    Haha cheers, nice to know we have some support piwlady :)

    Taylor yes, it baffles and annoys me. They have several seperate death models for every unit instead of various death anims. It's going to prove problematic because even with importing wow models when they die it doesn't play the death anim, we'll have to copy, edit and reimport death models.. ._.

    I've found a work around this, we just have to use proper events for each actor.

    Right now I got the peon model you sent me to die properly without a separate death model or actor.

    Oh f*** lol, totally forgot I promised that :D
    *insert made up excuse*

    ...
    Actually I'm not like the rest of those modders, if I promise something I try my upmost to deliver... I'll get right on it ;)


    EDIT: Just might be a couple of hours, got some other mod related stuff to do D;
    *breaks into singing* and yeahahhhh... I DO IT ALL FOR YOU!

    EDIT2: Just had a huge, unexpected but highly useful discussion (and AGREEMENT (for once!)) about certain gameplay aspects and directions of the mod that I can't talk about right now (how many times have you heard that? no it doesn't mean we didn't do anything it means were not going to tell you! Why? I don't freaking know, probably because we feel cool and powerful knowing something you don't? Yeah I know you know stuff I don't know. Nice try I'm not going to trade).

    Anyway didn't get the lore done... hehe... I'll definitely put something up tomorrow - if I can be bothered getting up early, I'll do it then else, after work. IS THERE ANYTHING SPECIFIC YOU WANT TO KNOW LORE WISE (related to humans/orcs)? I can't promise I'll answer but seeing as I didn't deliver today, I feel inclined to give you a little something, so a choice in what I reveal is yours to some degree :D (if you post b4 I get round to it... 6-14hrs)

    EDIT3: Roarman has been doing some AMAZING data stuff, he's been working on stuff I feel I can talk about, but meh, I'll let him do it because I'm feeling lazy right now.

    -> It involves... a Great Hall, Peons... Other Structures and resources. :)
    and it's a lot more exciting than it sounds! HONEST D:

    Ok so I didn't get any lore done... but! I did do some site work, I went on to do some lore and then realised... I didn't like the background section in some ways, for e.g. it doesn't actually tell you what page your on so I messed around with that, it now highlights your page on the navbar. :D

    Also changed some pictures, fonts, textsize and layout a tad'
    All ready for lore additions throughout the week!

    Factions? Alright, Forsaken and Theramore coming up!


    And we've advanced on the hero idea somewhat, probably more on that much later in the month - see how TWIF gets on with it.

    EDIT: The background page will wipe your current page when you highlight a subsection, this is necessary for the highlighting nav bit to work properly - I won't go into details but please don't complain, why are you moving your mouse up there if your not going to change page anyway!? :D

    Why didn't Hakeem just transfer thread ownership to Grey? He did that with SoC and it worked just fine.
    Oh well. :p
