    I'll suggest you use MDLVIS, it's a great program, you can use it to animate the model, attach geosets and such...

    You'll need to master both War3ModelEditor and MDlvis. The start is the hardest part. You can look for some tutorials or post questions in the modeling forum.
    I advice to watch some videos on youtube, it will greatly help the learning process at the beginning.

    Thx guys. I found a great tutorial about mdlvis.
    I have played around with mdlvis and made a animation with the village male model.
    I have 1 problem, when i make his model i see an undead model (from flesh stand) en his dismembering body on the ground. How do i get rid of them?

    Also, im making this for my RPG. The male villager is most used from what i have seen in other maps. Is this true? And why is he most used?
    Thx
