    I get the argument of wanting the WC3 HD models posted above but at the same time I also really like the newness of the models while still retaining the spirit of the originals.

    @deepstrasz Dont annoy me with this guys videos xD
    None of RF models is really based on original concepts in any meanigful way. And now since according to grubby its last days of real classic wc3 before they kill it off just like Reign of chaos bnet making everything "reforged" There wont be any choice but to play butchered version of my beloved game........what the hell happened after SC:R that they went this idiotic lazy route......killing off RoC and now classic just because its easier for them....while they make things harder for us....
    I really wish we just got a remaster like SC:R whith classic kept proper and models being just lioe War3hd dragonfly ones... it would be correct way to do things......now they change values of animations on units just to fit their shitty hd models.....its ridiculous....
    Its all on top of them not unterstanding the vision or design and logic behind it that original team had, and actingout of selfproclaimed superiority in every interview and devpanel still mocking original game directly or indirectly by laughing at it every time they mention original art. None of these people should ever touch wc3 because od their illfitted approach and constant disrespect which is conplete 180 from how they treated Starcraft 1. When with wc3 there is more of reason to stay faithful to original...but that didnt cross their hollow heads even once.
    Heroes of the storm renditions if wc3 characters is atlelast trying to stay faithful and to echo the animations and overall design.
    They dont even understand that wc3 is for most part serious despite cartoony aesthetic and some jokey pised lines and couple animations. 2018 culling demo turned dark, serious and dreary scene into a comedy with arthas idioticly pointing fingers at the city. Its not even trying to follow WoW withits aethetics because wow interations were made woth understandingof the material and themes and WoW itself is still quite close to wc3's graphics style with slightly cartoony characters and eviroments all beig matte with no reflections or specular highlights.
    In RF these morons force it in on everything while creating automatic all gloss effect to 'fix' classic ingame and community assets making then look like they are drenched in oil. While forgetting how important distinct animations of og wc3 models are to both their look and unit recognition for melee players but also many custom maps.....

    Not sure what you're talking about, but classic WC3 isn't going anywhere. Classic TFT can still be played on bnet. Even in reforged you can switch to classic graphics.
    AFAIK that hasn't been abandoned.

    There is no 'classic tft' now classic owners will play with Reforged's SD option

    So do custom models look noticeably better in Reforged thanks to improved lighting or some stuff? Or is there not much difference comapred to standard?

    They are looking worse thanks to broken shaders

    So for modding purposes, if one does not want to use the new assets, there is no reason to buy reforged at all

    Yes, because you kind of have to throw away old ones or atleast put up with them looking bad, and idiotic model changes that affects older maps, because people working on RF didnt think for a second about that, even with something as simple as "add not replace" doctrine for assets keeping more faithful remakes for all existing stuff and adding more if they want to swap some of them in campaign.
    That's on top of other things that RF breaks(some of hte triggers dont work on many maps, tilework replacements are broken and forcefully swapped with RF defaults. You have to pretty much play in SD mode to have everything look coherent, proper and as intenteded.
    There are other issues, stupid redubb of non english versions which at its best it as level of female demon hunter....so really bad in execution, even if they got some good voice actors, its all fucked up because of either writing, bad spelling of native lines of characters so like nelven stuff demon hunter of tauren chieftain say(they choke on them exacly like english fem Demon hunter), meh delivery.
    Grubby said that they will kill Classic wc3 and force everyone to Reforged....just like they killed Reign of chaos(which had well and alive melee scene still) They have no shame or respect....or any understanding of this game....only good things we have is because of Kam being hired and him pushing for world editor features we want. Sadly noone was hired to direct everything else.....

    All i wanted was to Wc3 get treated by them like Starcraft 1 with its remaster....but no.... and you could see this in pretty much every video and interview they are or someone from the team was.....from utmost respect in Sc:R dev videos to constant mockery of wc3 and them laughing at it and people who made it. Acting like they are superior, complaining about non issues or issues they themselves created....

    I hope we can tweak lighting and other graphics parameter for each maps o.o
    And is there any dynamic lights from special effects?

    Tbh my only complaint about the Footman model is the animations, like people have said they stand too erect and upright, they need to look a bit more hunched and combat ready. Also there needs to be a bigger distinction in animations between being in defend and not because right now in-game I can't tell the difference often, the attack animations being the worst offenders.

    @Sieben and they swiftly ignored us all, while Brian Sousa kept disrespecting and insulting original art at 2019 blizzcon after he clearly failed to understand it's design and purpose in 2018. Wc3 is now forever ruined not just art wise but also due to cut and utterly broken functionality and total loss of classic Wc3 with everyone forced to Reforged. Being gentle and polite to them was pointless i guess. They didnt care enough to do it right, even tho they easily could(look at War3HD done by DragonFly for Starcraft II as a sidejob for porting wc3 assets to it; and in regards of rest of the game -> Starcraft Remastered)
