    Because there are only two "units" in your map picture:

    Hidden

    If you add 6 more units into the picture, the hive description will auto update to 8.

    Looks like you're talking about cover image, but what kind of neural network recognition hiveworkshop use to mark it as a 'two units on that image'? If we're talking about minimap thingy - it was autocreated, it wasn't me who placed only 2 player start locations at that image. I'm confused as hell. Please clarify.

    And btw, an advice of how can you hide cover-art from 'Previews' section would be also very nice to receive.

    Yes, this is definitely related to the reason why it's recognized as 2-player map.

    For example, the same thing happened here (compare the minimaps for two attached files).
    I would guess it's Hive reading the new map format wrong.

    Pastebin?

    Where this custom models came from? Was they in the game or you they were created for the custom in the short period of time?

    There is not a single custom model. That's the point of making that map with some kind of 'personal challenge'. Everything you see is OG Blizzard/Lemonsky assets.

    Personally, I think there were people that started with old wc2 abilities and units from the beginning of the developing of Warcraft 3(as a part of rpg like Warcraft universe mix of tactics and strategy). Also, as they were need some props for Medivh's memories, that Blizzard even quotes in their trailers and demos, considering latest playwarcraft3.com changes.

    So the main reason is basically this, time 1:26:

    Thats funny, because in that scene we can see a Frozen Throne Demolisher, instead of wc2 styled catapult which can be seen in your map. They didnt even fully used them.

    ReplaceableTextures\Selection\SelectionCircleSmall.blp
    ReplaceableTextures\Selection\SelectionCircleMed.blp
    ReplaceableTextures\Selection\SelectionCircleLarge.blp
    Use BLP Lab to convert those to tga (or something) and edit them in Photoshop.
    Or just use this: Selection Circles v1.50

    EDIT: Made my own for Reforged.

    Oh, thank you! But have you used SC v1.50 square sprites by yourself? I tried as a first measure to prove the concept, but it was not as sharp and clean as you would've expect from a 4K res game, so I'll try to make my own.
