    A campaign modification for WarCraft III: The Frozen Throne

    Due to the messiness and over 1,000 posts in the old Wc3:WoW discussion thread, this new discussion thread is being started to keep things a bit more organized, fresh, and clean.

    To those of you who aren't sure of this thread's purpose, it is simply to talk about the mod with the community. Ask questions, give suggestions and ideas, whatever. Just keep the subject related to this mod. Off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted, if necessary.

    Please try to read all that you can on the other threads. Especially the stickied threads. It will save me a lot of time in the end! Thank you!

    PS: Should the old discussion thread be locked or left open?

    I think you should start making wow cursors first it's not as hard as outher things and you can make it completly wow like even in GUI.

    If I were you, I'd keep the original thread stickied, and just lock it. So others can look through the old conversations if they want to, it can be referenced to as well, there is a lot of useful information left in the thread, as well as nostalgic purposes as well.

    Alright, I'll do that.

    We have no WoW cursors for WarCraft III and I couldn't find any around a few sites, unfortunately. We'll just have to settle with default WarCraft III cursors for now until someone creates a working WoW cursor for WarCraft III.

    Very little is done or even worth looking forward to. The version compatible with 1.24 isn't even playable yet, but it's only a matter of time and patience until the triggers are successfully transferred and converted to work with 1.24e+.

    One of the reasons people may think the mod is destined to succeed is because in the past, we had hoped the mod would be playable online. However, due to the 1.24 patch and the discontinuation of Reinventing the Craft shortly after, that idea died. Wc3:WoW will be single-player, but despite the fact that you are the only player in the game, there will be many bots (we call them Player-Bots) that will act like real players - to an extent. It's our way of trying to help increase the feeling that you're playing an MMORPG that you're familiar with than a single player RPG. In my opinion, even the simple bots help give that feel a lot.

    Ah well fair enough, I just always have a positive outlook on things :p
    Even if it isn't multi-player, doesn't matter! It's gonna be successful with hard work and determination! :)

    Will the version you are working on right now involve the expansions, or just the stand-alone game?

    Wc3:WoW has always set it's goal to recreate "vanilla WoW" as best and accurately as possible. Obviously, we'll accept many changes made in the expansions, but we have no desire to include expansion content as far as zones, dungeons, races, classes, or whatever. So no, there will not be an Outlands or Northrend ever. This is because it'd require way more work and time. Something we unfortunately cannot devote to. Plus, vanilla WoW was arguably the best moment of World of Warcraft's history. And speaking of which, none of the upcoming content in Cataclysm will be included in Wc3:WoW either.

    I used to revert to retail servers of World of Warcraft when trying to recreate World of Warcraft accurately, but I find that private servers are just... way more convenient. They're free, easier to level so I can get around easier, and are still like the real game - depending on the private server you're on.

    Ah okay awesome :) I'll have to agree with that, Outland and Northrend aren't exactly as challenging as I thought they would ever be, kinda of a let down.. wouldn't wanna waste much time on that. The original is better anyhow :)

    I never was able to get on a private server, haha didn't know they existed on World of Warcraft! Now I feel like I've been robbed of my money lol :p

    Yeah, I felt the same way when I first discovered private servers. There are only two really good servers I play on now: Molten-WoW.com's "Frostwolf" server (it's the closest thing to retail WoW and is really active) and CrusadeGaming.com's "Nefarian" Instant 80 PvP server. A lot of people underestimate the "instant 80 pvp" thing, but for CrusadeGaming, it's pretty organized, balanced (for the most part), and competitive. I play almost always because... Alliance is just flat out full of retarded Night Elves and Gnomes. :smile:

    On the Frostwolf server, I mainly play my level 19 troll twinked Rogue. He's missing 2 or 3 items that will complete him and only has his gloves enchanted, but I'm definitely one of the Alliance's biggest pains to deal with, since they just love to stop what they're doing to attack me. And still die. lol

    Ah okay, I should check them out and get back into WoW! I have the Burning Crusade but never bothered to buy the rest.. should give the private servers a go sometime. Probably takes registration and the like.
    Haha twinks! I had a twinked lvl 29 Undead Mage.. was pretty vicious with the blink, frost nova and then just spamming spells. And yes, alliance were absolutely shit (excuse my language) until Worgen came along.. silly humans.

    Another crazy thing about private servers is you don't even need to buy any of the World of Warcrafts or game-time cards! You just download the WotLK client and download all the patches except passed 3.3.5a and you're done! Pretty crazy how it's legal. The servers are just not allowed to earn money off the game or it's popularity. Though I do notice almost all servers sneak in incentives to "donate" cash. The servers I play on are pretty good against hackers and don't force you to pay to win, so I like them most for those reasons too.

    You do not need a wow cursor.The warcraft 3 human cursor i more as the wow cursor.

    What about the orc,human,night elf,troll and tauren models and starting areas.

    Are some of them finish.

    We do not have an artist on the team who knows how to create any custom UI. And even though it would possible be easy enough to just copy the cursor from WoW's UI file and paste it in the WarCraft III one in Photoshop or something, we just aren't sure how to do it. If anyone else knows how to create custom cursors for WarCraft III, let me know! I'd love a cursor that resembles the World of Warcraft one!

    None of the areas are finished being terrained, but right now I am working on reterraining the Valley of Trials in Durotar for the orcs/trolls and I am also working on the Red Cloud Mesa in Mulgore for the tauren. Unfortunately, the undead race and the alliance races are still unplayable due to the incompleteness of their areas. The tauren starting place is the closest to being finished.

    You literally just make a .blp cursor with the appropriate dimensions (extract a default one from the MPQ to find out).

    I'm sure an artist is capable of replicating the cursor ^^

    And import it, override with one (or all) of the following paths in the import manager:

    UI\CURSOR\OrcCURSOR.BLP
    UI\CURSOR\HumanCURSOR.BLP
    UI\CURSOR\NightElfCURSOR.BLP
    UI\CURSOR\UndeadCURSOR.BLP

    EDIT: ah, just occured to me you probably meant with all the different states/animations? Yeah.. Sorry, I could see about finding out for you though =)
