The Future of WE

Here's a question:

What new features would you like to see when/if Blizzard makes WE4 or StarEdit 2?

Here are my answers:

- Multilevel capabilities
- Walking under bridges
- WEU triggers become standard
- Manipulate Unit Editor properties through triggers

Rofl, for the actual 'ingame' stuff, I'd like the three-dimensional camera properties that WE has.

New skins and models, of course; you could possibly choose from a few that would slightly differ.

Depends if they have enough time. To walk under a bridge, you'll need to create a sort of 3d pathing map created by splicing 2+ pathing maps together to make it possible. Hmm to that.

The ability to create local variables, and a lot of JASS stuff they never got around to implementing.

Make bigger maps :D Like 468 x 468 or whatever :p "Uber-Epic" :D And maybe instead of 4 MB max, 6 MB max or whatever :shades:

Raise the doodad count.

More JASS stuff translated into GUI, as mentioned before.

Allow us to make units look transparent and ethereal through OE, or at least more easily ...

Allow us to toggle that annoying function that raises the cliff height automatically when you try and make it three levels higher than the terrain around it.

Allow us to use more cliff tiles.

Maybe allow for UNDERwater things like subs rofl :p

Allow units to do more complex things, like climb ladders and do other custom abilites.

A bit more in the terms of "3D"...Ever notice that you're flying units all fly at the same hieght? And how complicated is it just to fix that? How complicated is it to make a Jump ability? Very, my friends, very...How sad :(

Maybe change that a bit? Have flying creatures able to fly up and down, not just north, south, easts and west. (By the way, flying up a hill/mountain isn't what I mean. I mean have more distances from the ground, regardless of the ground's hieght)

You can change the flying height, you know. You just can't do smooth things like swoops.
A pre-made trigger that allows for jumps would be awesome.

I know you CAN change stuff like that, but I mean having it so that it just works regularly. It's not trigger related, just a part of the game :p Maybe only for certain maps, or something, like you'd have to enable/disable it, but it WOULD be cool.

Like above, I don't mean a trigger for jump. I mean a jump ABILITY. Stuff that requires moving through the air, not just on the ground, or at the same exact level of air.

I want HEIGHT, DAMN IT! :D

How about changing cliff hights though triggers? I am designing a map that is randomly designed at the start of every game by placing trees, rivers and units. I'm fudging alot of things to generate rivers though scripts. And when you do that, you don't get the cool waves. I haven't quite got the new pathing right for the water.

You can just do that with triggers to doodads :p

---

More trigger codes to do thing like make units slide across a certain tile like ice.

---

More tilesets:

Deserted Lands (a more deserty barrens)
Marsh Lake (a more swampy felwood)
Cell River (a more ghostly black citadel)

They probably dont add extra tilesets, just a thought, ive only had wc3 since patch 1.17 so i dont know if they add tilesets.

---

A trigger to play a movie which is imported (cant you do that already?)

---

A system where you can test the game in the terrain editor.

---

More of a use for the gem activation like when you click to place a unit, you hear its summoning voice like priest "i come to clense this land" and when you decide to move it somewhere it plays its move animation while being moved.

Like you say silver, it would be great to change 'object editor' stuff with triggers, so that for example i could make a unit fly with a triger, instead of making him morph and so on.
