Did anyone notice the new size limit is 8 MB ?

Looks like the map size limit is going to get increased with the 1.23b patch.
More custom stuff to cover up shitty gameplay! hooray! =D

8MB is NOTHING, I'd gladly download an 8MB map if that means it will look nicer. I'm happy for it.

I'm not exactly sure how that works though, because I imported 6mb of shit into my project and its filesize is something like 2.8mb, unoptimized. :nuts:

Blizzard is actually helping map makers. Looks like my ORPG will be coming out better. So will many others. Ghost Wind, i think blizzard might have even made a optimizer. Now 456 by 456 maps will be playable, as long as blizzard increased the dl speed on b.net.

Your previous comment made it sound very much like your map was projected to be ~26 MB once complete.

1. Downloaded of off a site maybe, but through wc3 that would take very long.
2. Becuase of the above, it would be pretty much impossible to get a full game on b.net
3. So you would just play it single player anyways?

Of course there are exceptions, but I don't think it will really be made use of. :shades:

Blizzard wouldn't make the max map size 8mb if it takes too long to dl. They probably will improve the system and speed up dl.

If they do so, some maps would end up incompatible with the old patches of warcraft.

Trouble is, we don't want to sit around for ages in the lobby downloading a map, just because the creator decided to import some bloody trees and a sky model.

Lots of people download maps from sites. I tend to organize my games with my friends anyways, so if it's not DotA, I don't really play with pubbies.

Well yes, thats why I said there is exceptions. Random people normally don't just download lots of maps from sites though, so I don't think it would work, even if some do; it would mostly be groups of friends playing maps.


@D.V.D: Somehow, I don't think they will go through that much work for an old game like wc3. Only reason they are patching it at all this time is for DotA, anyways.

Hopefully they'll update this system. This download system right now is too slow.

I just think 98% of the maps will have Linkin Park music added to them. :(

I lol'd

Anyway, I think its great that they (might be) are upgrading the map size.
Although most maps won't ever get to that size, I know several maps that are limited in what they have because of needed models and such.

I think they're going to use the same servers for SC2, and are upgrading them accordingly.

    Signatures can be edit in your account profile. As for the old stuffs, I'm thinking it's because Blizzard is now under Microsoft, and because of Microsoft Xbox going the way it is, it's dreadful.

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though
