Wc3 Model Viewer

During Wc3's development Blizzard had created a huge amount of content for the game but the map editor is very good at hiding it. This map tries to enable one to explore the models (.mdl, .mdx files) part of that content. Because of the many referenced models, the map doesn't load instantly in the game, to say the least.

PS: I tried to load it in WE after the object data was generated/injected but it seemed to take too long so I didn't bother.

    Issues:



    I could hardly consider this being fitting for a spell or even a system since I do not see any relevant underlying code beneath it.
    The name is somewhat misleading, as from what I read, the title implies a model viewer-esque mechanic in revealing models, not unearthing hidden models.​

    However, this resource could be placed either in the miscellaneous forum, or tutorial forum for modding purposes, which deems it
    inappropriate for this forum.​

    I don't agree with any of this. For one, it seemingly has options to shows all models, not just hidden ones. Furthermore, it's clearly a demo map or system. Why would it not be fitting here?

    I also don't think it deserves 1 star. It's far more impressive than most things submitted in this section.

    @Aniki The only thing I suggest is making the code visible from the trigger editor and not rely on people to edit the war3map.j, which is impractical for most cases. In it's current state the map cannot be opened in the World Editor either.

    I based my review on the Trigger Viewer and the immediate map in the World Editor. However, I may not be able to release a re-review if I cannot see the underlying code, thus the 1 star rating, which is the case in both the Trigger Viewer and regular World Editor.

    EDIT:

    I'll see if I can release the compiled war3map.j and reconstruct the vJASS code based from that.
