You should just be able to import the model and a set it's path to something. Then in the Data Editor you should be able to find the model at that path when selecting the path for the model for a unit. There should be instructions from where ever you got the model from that explains how to get it working.

First of all try to tell people what you know, like where did you get the model from?

When you import stuff you'll have to save after you imported it, and then you can use the item you imported.

To get the model to appear in the map, first import it. Then save the map. Next, right click the model and move the file to Assets. That should work out well. When you put the model on a unit through an actor, just navigate to the assets folder and it will be right there!

For the record, you don't have to move the file to Assets. I always keep them where they are to separate between my imported files and the standard files.

I put them in Assets but not in the models folder in Assets. That way, it is easier to locate them, but they are still separate.

First you need a program like photoshop to create the right files for it
Next step is save it in the right folder where are also the other model files
Last step will be the import menu in the SC2 editor, I assume you know where the import menu is

Remember the location where you saved your file and import it

note: becarefull with importing, all of the files are selected in first

well it was annoying to say the least but i got most of the work done importing the unit and then i had to make a few things in data editor such as a model for the defiler to be stored in/etc but yea there's one thing i find weird... the defiler isn't showing up on my unit palette until placed on map... is this a problem?

    In the GIF, I've configured it so the lower the "Main Value" is, the better. I had to compress it pretty far down though.

    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?

    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.
