    Funny thing is Russia provided China with a bit of weaponry through the war, so why doesn't China have the ability to produce certain Soviet units? (Directed at Fin)

    The chinese collaboration with the soviet mostly occured during the end parts of the war, when the soviet union was fighting japan (from what i understand), and most of all after the communist takeover.

    Sure, i could use soviet infantry models for them, i haven't decided yet. I agree though that the germans look a biit too western, with their pale faces and blue eyes, to pass for a chinese.

    Can't you at least edit the model and wrap the face to the Japanese one, maybe change their weapon to a different one too? (Or their hats\helmets)
    That way, you'll only need to import an MDX file, and not a unique texture(half filesize, wee!).

    I will check, but honestly, it is the size of the .mdx that is most concerning (100kb for most infantry units, about 50% of that when compressed in the MPQ).

    I don't think Fingolfin needs any more aid. I haven't seen someone with so many skills since Kofi_Banan, (I think Fin does it a little better than Kofi).

    Illidan(Evil)X is my personal role-model for WC3 modding. Fingolfin is doing a great job with a project of this size, however.

    Same here, except mine's inclusive of Ham_Ham as well (A creator of a WW3 game).

    Fingolfin is kinda one of those handfuls of people who are good at Modelling, Texturing, Terraining and Triggering all at the same time:)

    Hell, I would survive even freezing planes to see all the other stuff at least.

    However, that's why open betas are there, so people will spot loads of bugs, especially because there are some luckers that would get an awful glitch.

    Yeah, with those betas we could actually make this game become perfect as soon as possible, especially with the help of a huge amount of people from the community:)

    This was a heavy insult for Fingolfin. :thumbs_down: How dare you compare that gay hobo with pr0 like Fingolfin??? Here you see his major achievement. http://www.arcane.cba.pl/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=3912

    Whether or not you think he is a gay hobo, he still has quite a few skills in different areas.

    He said that these models were meant to be stupid as they look like, and they are based on some retarded "toon" (for adults) which is as pathetic as South Park in my opinion.
    Yet, I don't think that this thread is good place to have such discussion.

    @xRiotZx
    Well sorry, I speak Polish language (which is native language for creator of these models) and he said on that forum that these models were supposed to be used in a stupid way, and the admins have to relax, especially when the models were based on "Captain Bomba" series that used to come out daily on some TV channel (4fun.tv I think).
    He also created a silly map using these models, but map actually sucked anyway.

    Ehh i dont know if you have realised it but if you go to the units section of your website the hawker hurricane has like 4 times as much hp as eny of the other planes... i dont know if its on purpose but to me it is just a little strange.
