Warcraft III map.

Hey everyone,

I'm currently working on a map for WC3 based on the Southern Hemisphere of Twinsun. Problem is, the editor won't allow people to make huge maps. Only large ones. So I won't be able to fit all the islands in. Citadel is obviously a must. I mean... it's not LBA without Citadel Island. But, which others would you like to see? I probably have enough room to make 2 more.

- Principal
- Proxima
- Rebellion
- White Leaf Desert

Each has their own little problems with them. For example, Rebellion, and to a lesser degree, Proxima, would have parts made by me that are obviously not in the game. (Rebellion would probably be reconstructed, or what not)

Principal wouldn't be too difficult and I'm kind of expecting to do that one anyway.

White Leaf wouldn't look much like the real thing at all because the tileset I have to use doesn't have anything that resembles sand at all.

Tell me what you think and if you're interested I'll see if El will host it on the site.

If you just need textures, I made some from the LBA1 White Leaf desert, so you could create a new tileset.
And the LBA2 textures can be extracted using LBADeComp, by the way.

It does? Damn. I spent so much time on Citadel Island and let me tell you, it's a pain in the ass. Hmmmmmm..... I've got an idea, though.

How do you make your own tileset, by the way?

Good luck

Imo the best would be Citadel + Desert + Proxima. I dont know how much you can customise WIII, but I hope it'll look well like LBA.

Aren't there any tutorials on the official site or the battle.net site?

I actually started to create a LBA scenario with own voice recordings and such in Warcraft III editor. But that was in july, and after a week I got tired of the game, which sucks, btw. I am relieved I never gave any money for it.

Okay, I downloaded the newest patch and I still can't get at 256X256.

Plus, I haven't searched through the sites as to changing the tilesets but I'll definitely dig through them tonight.

oh wait >_<

It was an add-on made by a fan to use some of the things that are capeble with WC but not inplanted (like the Orc juggernaughts from the credits and some easter eggs)

Too bad it won't be giving the 256x256 untill the next release

I can mail you the current if you want

Okay, problems. First and foremost, bridges.

We're all very familiar with the bridge that goes over the enterance way to the harbor on Citadel Island. What I want to know is:

Is there any way to allow units to pass under bridges while still using them? For some reason, the editor brings the bridges wayyy down into the path and doesn't allow units to pass under.

Secondly, weather.

I've set up triggers and what not to create rain, but it still won't appear on the map. Is it only in cinematic mode, or what?

I'm sorry that all these questions are about the WC3 Editor and not LBA .... BUT have no fear. I'll work through them and deliver the best damn map I can, and then you guys will tell me what's wrong with it, and then I'll change it to be better.

Alright, thanks. I've been out of town (and still am out of town) for the past couple days so I haven't been able to work with the problem much. However, tomorrow I'll be back at my normal computer and ableto tackle the problem once again.

Hey y'all. I'm still around morshem, always will be, I just write when I have time or am inspired to do so. (Or someone tells me to). Anyway, I will tell you what happened to this project. For a while, it was good. Things were running smoothly and most problems were worked out. Then came a key location on Citadel Island, the bridge that goes over the path leading to the harbor. Know of it? Yeah. Quite prominent in everyone's mind, no doubt. What happened was the computer would not allow a player's character to pass under the bridge into the harbor. This posed a problem as I wanted to create a map as similar to the original as I possibly could. After struggling with this issue for a time, I gave up. It was too difficult to create a "teleporting" trigger that would warp you to the harbor. Since then, the file was formatted along with the rest of my harddrive. I'd like to work on it again sometime, but first I'd like to get the WC3 expansion working again (my cd is shot, so I need a new one).
