Warcraft III Art Tools 1.0

Submitted by Blizzard Entertainment
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
This tool originates from here

Comprising a set of plugins for Discreet®’s 3ds max®, these tools allow advanced users to create, modify, and quickly preview models and animations, including particle and ribbon effects, that can be used in custom maps created with Warcraft III’s World Editor. Please note that Blizzard does not directly support the Warcraft III Art Tools, and the technical support staff will not be able to respond to any related inquiries. However, detailed and illustrated instructions on how to use the software are included with the download.

A valid license for Discreet®’s 3ds max® 4.0 is required in order to use the Warcraft III Art Tools. We highly recommend that 3ds max® version 4.26 is used, with the service pack 1 fixes. Windows® 2000 or XP is suggested. Note: The Warcraft III Art Tools do not include a means for creating textures. To create textures, a paint program, such as Adobe®’s Photoshop®, is required.

    I think now it is useless tool, i have no idea HOW to get that old program 3ds max 4.0. Of course it doesn't work on my uncle's 3ds max 2010. I don't know what to do now. Milkshape is not free and all editors I know can only edit models, there is no chance to create a new one with them.. well that sucks...

    If somebody here knows how to get this working, just post please, I'm about to start crying. I'm confused HOW ppl can make new models just only with few freeware tools.

    Buhehebeeee :'(

    EDIT:
    I found 3ds max 5, I hope that version works ...

    i aint that good with writing. i dont want other people to retreat from the website because they get threatened. (or banned for breaking the rules.) as for the link to blizzards website containing the art tools, i checked it out myself. it leads to a website that have been removed. it is possible to get 3ds max 5 which is compatible with the art tools.
