Warcraft III: Reign Of Chaos
WorldEditor Advanced v.1

3. How to Install
4. How to uninstall (only applies for modders or when expansion comes)
5. Future Addings
==============================================================

1. Introduction

I'm Cookie from wc3campaigns. As you might have known there are easter egg units in the game, hidden from the World editor as well from the game. The MODification community already figured out how to enable them, so that they can be placed within the World editor itself without much hassle (in fact, its clear simple).

The file that will enable the hidden units, like Hydra, zergling, terran marine etc is called: "unitui.slk". This file contains the various data for WE (and game itself, but that is not important as the game has been programmed to read from mpq and not from folders, which means it will ignore this file). By editing it we have enabled the hidden units.

==============================================================

2. Contents

what are enabled are:

-wards, ranging from stasis, sentry, healing and ancestral
guardian (Normally they cannot be selected in WE)

-owls (the flying thngs that the NE sent out for scouting =) )

-easter egg units:

catogory A= Neutral unit (hydralisk, zergling, Sammycube, shoveler with rob pardo's face)

Catogory B= Human unit (marine)

Catogory C= Orcish unit (Orc juggernauth)

==============================================================

3. How to install

How to install:

just unzip the folder to the warcraft III main folder. You should see units as a new folder. In that folder there is a file called unitui.slk
Thats all, that is the installation. If you want to play you dont have to remove this file, as wc3 is programmed not to read folders (only mpq) but the WE do.

==============================================================

4. How to uninstall

How to uninstall:

Delete the folder "Units" from the main directory of warcraft III. Thats all. This is mostly for people who are modders himself (if they want to add units they have to edit the unitui.slk etc) or when the expansion of Warcraft III comes out =P

==============================================================

5. Future Addings

What will be done next time?

-enable you to create 256X256 maps
-Spell effects/abilities effects/units will be usable as missiles (so you can make an giant orc shoot off sheeps)
-guide how to create custom units that use doodad models, spells and missile models (whakkyness aproved)

==============================================================

well, happy mapping and greetings from Cookie here and from wc3campaigns.com and its staff =)

ps: if any modders need help with various stuf, send me an E-mail at [email protected]

that site works, and the download works, but the link does not take you directly to the download, it takes you to a review of the file. What you need to do is go to their download section, and then find the file from there.

thx last questions

Thankyou hojo.
u are the only smart person other than me who is on this page. now i have 2 more questions that i have to ask and if i get them answered i will leave and none of you will ever hear of me again. i would like to know 2 things. First, i would like to know how to get money whenever one of your units kills something, like in the "towers" maps. And i would like to know how to make an opening clip like in the "alien vs predator" maps. If i get these 2 questions answered u will never hear from me again.

    Hmm, about the Headline News, I noticed threads are being moved into the subforum (Health News, Environmental News, etc.). When that happens, the TH Forum Home page loses the articles, and instead would show old articles posted 1 or 2 weeks ago.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What do we do with the Home page?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I added those forums to the filter for that widget.

    Oh nice. They're back. Thanks.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Now I think it makes more sense for me to put news in their own subforums, without worry.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Awesome Ghan thanks! I was purposely not moving the first 15 news articles in Headline news to the different subforums but I guess I don't have to do that now?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Question: Is there a way to remove thread redirects? It creates a copy of the moved thread and takes up space, and I am leaning towards wanting to remove them in the Headline News. But if they have an expiration date, I guess I'm fine with it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    If you move a thread please leave a permanent redirect. You can delete any redirects after 6 months. The redirects are left to help Search Engines find the moved content.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What if you move the permanent redirect, not the thread?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think that works but I have not messed with it. You can delete redirects though if you have to that will not delete the original thread
  • The Helper The Helper:
    if a redirect ends up in the same forum as the post it goes to though I think the redirect drops or fails or something but they are not bugged out and when you are working on an indirect the original post is safe.

    I found out you can't delete nor hide redirect links to existing threads. It will just stay there. I have no choice now but to start moving thread redirects to News Archive.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    That is not the way that it works for me I can delete redirects you just have to hit refresh sometimes big deletes will take a while as long as moves\
  • The Helper The Helper:
    You don't have to do that you can just leave stuff there in headline news for up to a year it was already down to like 8 months there is no rush.
