?

Should there be a new complete resource section for Blizzard-related resources -War3?

  1. Agree, we need a new resource section for all Blizzard-related resources into War3.

    37.8%
  2. Disagree, I' think it should be as it is, users can still upload those resources in the Forums.

    36.5%
  3. I don't have any opinion about this subject.

    Description
    I think it could be a great time to start allowing the uploading of Blizzard related resources in the sections: ex: Models, Skins and Icons in the resource gallery.

    It could be a good choice to create a new section in the gallery for WoW models, textures and icons, so that it wont mix-in with War3 quality resources.
    Warcraft III is getting older and to preserve it from totally being abandoned it must have some new changes and resources to use in. Since this could be a great way to start using WoW models with-in War3 maps. They have higher polies, better textures, larger quality and are more effective.

    I am also including some of other Blizzard games into this such as: Diablo III, Starcraft II, Heroes of The Storm ect...

    The votes will be counted and presented in the staff forums, where various moderators and administrators decide on what further actions to take and how it will come into effect.
    The voting will expire and will not be counted after 2014 - 7 - 20, if anyone hasn't voted or forgot to vote - please do it until the set-date. :)

    Firstly wc3 engine is very outdated by now, nothing of the newer games could be possibly direct-ported into here but only re-created in wc3. You can easily use wow models in sc2 since they are already compatible with and require only minimal tweaking there.
    Secondly i doubt that opening a wow models section would produce any good, since majority of people would submit a random model ripped out of the mpq without any or only minimal edit whatsoever.

    Diablo III and Starcraft II models can be converted to .mdx using tools. In case you haven't heard of this. Secondly, your point about Wc3 Engine being outdated makes no point in all this, who cares if it is outdated, it doesn't mean that we must abandon it. Thank you for your opinion. :)

    I like how the poll doesn't have an option saying something like; "I don't think WoW rips should allowed".
    So I went with a comment.

    I don't agree with just basic WoW rips but things like WoW icons, textures Warcraft 3 Alpha resources etc should be available somewhere, and if that somewhere is an entirely new section so be it.

    WoW models ported into Warcraft 3 shouldn't be allowed but if someone was to say greatly reduce their poly count cut down the animations and make them actually usable in a Warcraft 3 map then I'd consider it.

    Recreation of alpha content is already related to wc3 game but doubt that would need its seperate category.
    WoW icons are already fully present on that other site in their different language.
    Texture rips, same probs as model rips. Unless some random saintly person passing by would rework all that stuff into a database for free like that doubt that you would be seeing anything useful ever came out of this. My point is that why even bother when besides the already available few bits and pieces you would have to requisite it or do it yourself in the end, anyways.

    Waiting for what?
    Their approval? Why would you set up a public poll if only a moderator's or admin's vote count?

    Obviously.
    If approved, this will open up a whole new world where you can spam the model section with more rips.

    Yeah, because it's not like there are gazillion other websites that already are/have been providing exported material from a variety of games for like 10 years now.

    Allowing it here accomplishes absolutely nothing except maybe pissing off a bunch of oldfags, and that's that.

    Well, me, as an 'oldfag', would definitely be pissed off. WOW rips, even edited to accomplish the standard of usability undermine the mere I of making models from scratch or make heavy edits from wc3 models.
    If you want to have WOW shit rips go to many of those crappy ripper sites.
    So, no WOW rips are crappy and I am against this idea.

    Other sites do not have such a strong community, they will eventually die off. However "War3Sear"(C?) or "HiveWorkShop" has been ever since War3 has been released, it is a constant foundation of game to the modding community. I clearly see how some people are ignorant not to see the whole vision behind this, instead they will keep on to the old ways and just bash the new ideas outside. Yet they don't understand that new ideas bring new variants to the modding community. If you come here just to chat then you are in a wrong place, this is a community that clings to acquire new ways into War3 modding. My suggestions would be to those who are lost: chat on Facebook.

    The idea will kill the very foundation of what this site is about. Modding and creating. Bring creations to life for others to use.
    Great modellers will fall victim to tons of crap rips, and those rips will streamline a lot of the map section as well.
    New ideas are great, but this is far from a new idea. And far from what this site stands for.
    Unless I have understood the purpose of this site the wrong way.

    Edit:
    And if you can't stand other people's opinion if they are different than yours, you should really not create threads like this.

    That doesn't entitle you to ignore or piss off members like Frankster. Where's your sense btw? Also don't talk to me like I'd be a child on the internet. I never talked like that to you.
