With all this stuff, we addressed a new situation: many maps that worked in the previous versions of WC3 are not working anymore in this version, so it's needed to make a kind of upgrade to the maps and manage a versioning in them: save the map for players which don't intend to upgrade to 1.29 and offer a version compatible with 1.29. Seeing the changes made in the coding part it's mandatory to check the functions created in the custom maps to fix possible bugs in the porting to 1.29.

If you need any help, you can share your issues in the discord channel https://discordapp.com/invite/GnBkkrn or in the "Patch 1.29 map conversion thread".

Let's rejoice for this new patch!!!

DOWNLOAD Warcraft III PTR Installer

Hello my fellow blizzmodders:

Some days ago there was a new patch in the PTR installation of Warcraft III and this update brought us, after a long loooooong time, a proper justice to the WC3 community. A new HUGE update, not a lesser one with the typical few changes and tiny fixes that only affected the ladder gamers in melee maps. This patch brings to us an unexpected change to the possibilities in the WC3 engine and this time, it was clear that the community demands were at last heard.

Would this a signal about a Warcraft 3 Remastering? probably as it has been said by several sites related to games [1 & 2 examples] will be Warcraft 4 on hold?, it's now a serious possibility. But in the meantime we can say at least: REJOICE wc3 community of modders, our prays has been heard and there's more to come.

Important changes in the game: Link
  • Widescreen: The game now supports true widescreen; there's some glitches in the moment but it's expectable to have some fixes in the moment. Right now in really width screens there's a blind mouse selection part that could occur. And it has been reported issues with other video processors (Intel graphics)
  • 24 Players: What??? YES!!! now you can make a map with support to 24 players!!! something incredible to be true... and it's TRUE!!. this brings a new possibility to new ideas for maps. This of course implies new player colors to try.
  • Bug fixes: stuff related with Mac compatibility and clan creation has been addressed.

World Editor Changes: Link
  • Object limit increased to 30,000
  • Map size limit increased to 480 x 480
  • Tile set limit increased to 16
  • Max execution number increased to 1666666
  • Max food limit increased to 999
  • Max resource limit increased to 9999999
  • Array size increased from 8192 to 32768
  • Display mana bar

And some Map Pools & Balance Updates which are described here.

Soon I will open a topic to deal with the new natives, where I'll do testings to each new function added to the WC3 game engine. Stay tuned to this topic so you can share and discuss the new features.
EDIT: topic opened: http://wc3jass.com/5555/patch-1-29-new-natives-a-testing-place/

What do you think about this patch?? please tell us your feelings and expectations.

Hello my fellow Blizzmodders:

Today is that lat day of the year where is an opportunity to remember all the thing we've done so far.

Thanks God, there's new stuff in the community to stand out, and I'll try to summarize.
  • One account for all the affiliate sites: With the new implementation, all the sites that belongs to the Blizzmod community allows to use the same account to access them. So if you registered your account in wc3modding.info, this same user and password can be used in the other places (blizzmod.info, wc3jass.com, etc...)

  • Resource filtering and easier search method available: You can see in blizzmod.info, wc3modding.info and wc3jass.com offer direct access links to the resources offered in those sites. All of them allows to have a clear description about its features and they can be filtered and searched by different categories, keywords and rating.

  • Topic integration with social networks: Every topic in blizzmod.info, wc3modding.info and wc3jass.com have links to Facebook and Google+, so you can share this topics easily with your friends. All the pages show nicely in those social networks. If the topic has an image in the first post, it will be used to stand out the topic in the sharing process.

  • Wiki/ integrated to the site: This section is aimed for integration with the coding highlighting. If you check, in the jass coding you can see a link over the function name which allows you to create or view a documentation to that function.

  • Related topic / resource: This feature allows to link any topic in all the pages from the Blizzmod network with other topics. This is useful to build "packs" of resources or to keep a trace of previous topics. This improves the chances that your topic gets accessible via google search.

  • Discord Chat: And the last but not least, the chat integration with Discord, where we're keeping together the community in support and chit chat in a reliable and faster way. It's easy to join, just follow the link :D

What's coming for 2018
  • Implement a faster way to upload resources. Right now you have to do two posting editions in order to implement the resources with images and download links.
  • uploading the model resources from the backup, so we can have again the big model database from the 2012 times. That's a big task to do.
  • Improve the icon submission system. Right now it's is slow and tedious to upload icon to the site.
  • Prepare the last version of JNGP (2.0.10) according to the new changes that seems to come in new patches of WC3

With all of this, I wish to all the community a happy new year 2018, expecting that your projects and goals gets successful and we hope this site keeps being useful to the WC3 community.

Hello my fellow Blizzmodders:

In the coming patch is appearing the new balances in some maps, starting with a map called Therenas Stand, a classic and nice melee map. For this I'll let you a nice video from Back2Warcraft.

With the coming PTR, you can now test a new pool system. I can give you an explanation, but Blizzard itself does the job better than me :P

Let's read from Blizzard itself!!!


Classic Games is excited to announce Warcraft III PTR will be live in the coming days. Focus will be on new map pools. The China Joy show match on the updated Terenes Stand between Fly and 120 was the debut of the types of improvements we can't wait to share.

The new map pools will be a mixture of three things – must haves from the current pools, classic maps from older pools, and new ladder version maps. The ladder version maps (LV), are original maps that have undergone significant improvements.

Below is an overview of our objectives and specific lists of changes by pool. So take some time to read up on the new LV maps in the coming days so you will be well prepared when the PTR goes live:

General Improvements & Gameplay Objectives

    Balanced creep camp difficulty progression from early to late game
    Balanced creep drop tables for better item progression from early game to late game
    Item diversity: Varied Level 1 though 6 charged items and Level 1 through 6 permanent items
    Balanced all start locations: total amount and starting distance from lumber, equal amount of spacing, equal size choke points, et cetera
    Balanced expansion distance from start locations
    Decluttered points of interest to reduce visual competition during gameplay
    Retextured map surfaces for better visual clarity - both on screen and mini-map
    Minimized the size of trees and doodads that obstructed player view of points of interest
    Added cliff lines or deep water to edges of the map - removing hard edges (aesthetic choice for immersion)
    Properly placed trees and doodads on the pathing grid: full-cell Medium Grid to half-cell Medium Grid alternate
    Removed the rolling shoreline waves from rolling hills to remove the noise the waves created - remains for cliff shores

List of 1 v 1 maps

    1 v 1 Map Pool (New)

List of 2 v 2 maps

    2 v 2 Map Pool (New)

List of 3 v 3 maps

Hello again my dear Blizzmodders!!!

Today, Blizzard offers to the community a new patch with some bug fixes needed so desperately, at least in terms of the modding community.

Hail Warchiefs,

Patch 1.28.5 is live. Our focus is on shoring up the last few significant 1.28 issues:

Bug Fixes

    File paths and user names think more globally in game and World Editor
    World Editor properly imports custom assets again
    Switching between Reign of Chaos and The Frozen Throne no longer causes a crash

Classic Games

Among all the changes made in this patch, there's one that is very important for modding and is the restoration of the import functionality. Now you can add again custom models, skins and other WC3 resources. Let's hop e they don't keep fixing one thing by screwing up two. According to the few posts from the community, it seems the patching way in this game is moving (at last) in the right direction.

As always, the screen shot for evidence :)

Warcraft III has been updated to version 1.28.4

Hello Blizzmodders!!

The thing with Warcraft is getting better and better. It was a rare calm and no updates (except the one linked in the related topics section), but this seems to have a good reason: A new patch with some new features.

Source: https://us.battle.net/forums/en/bnet/topic/20756885804#post-1

Now, let's analyze the post:

  • Game turn rate adjusted to match LAN settings of 12 turns per second
Ok, Nothing to explain, but the part of the LAN part could be related with this GOOD news, from Back2Warcraft:

The big news is the Battle.net server is now moving at 100ms, compared to the slow 250ms. This is something that was a big issue in terms of playability. 10 points for Blizzard.

Well, something to expect. We're glad to see the improvements applied to the game, and hopefully, this game will rise from the oblivion. What's next?? it seems with this patch there's enough foundations to get a content update in an easy way.

I'll be glad to hear your comments.


Update: Blizzard seems to be updating now to 1.28.4. Bug fixes about some installation issues have been fixed (Source: https://us.battle.net/forums/en/bnet/topic/20756885804?page=6#post-101).

Hello Blizzmoders:

Things are coming faster than I thought, and it seems that patch 1.29 is coming faster and faster. And this can be proof by the news provided by Blizzard staff:
Quote from: Matt Morris, Developer
Our plan is to set up a PTR for Warcraft III, so that we can get early feedback from the community about our changes, and then make the appropriate fixes.

And this is the possible outcome of this announcement:

Classic Games has been working hard on Warcraft III. The 1.28 patch didn’t hit all the marks we hold ourselves to. We’ve been making a lot of changes behind the scenes to make future work faster and more reliable.
So things are moving in the "right" direction.... hummm... ok :)

Patching and installation, CD keys, data migration, missing files from MPQs, usernames and file paths with UTF-8 characters, screen modes, order ID’s broke popular non-blizzard maps, and Mac specific issues were fallout from those improvements. We are working hard to address all the issues that you’ve brought to our attention. We appreciate your patience and involvement.
Patience, definitelyis what this community has built in all this years... no problem whatsoever  :D

Improving these classic codebases comes with its share of hazards, and we’re glad to partner with you on the endeavor. The better you communicate needs, wants, or bugs for the game, the more effective we will be at building a better Warcraft III.
It seems that we have to keep in touch with them, and this is showing a real interest, or trusting, in the community creativity skills... isn't it?

As we move forward, there will be quality of life game improvements, editor updates, new map pools, balance tweaks, and more. The recent patch was an important step in paving the way for the bigger ticket items that you all want. Please continue to give us constructive feedback, let us know where we missed, and what you want us to do!

Thank you,

Matt Morris
Lead Designer, Classic Games
Then it's mandatory to keep sticky into Blizzard forums or probably on Hive so they can keep a real feedback from the WC3 community. We'll try to keep up to date this news from Blizzard.

What improvements could be added to the current game? Share with us your opinions.

Hello Blizzmodders!!

I was wandering into the deep sea of videos called YouTube, and I found a video interview with Pete Stilwell, senior producer of Classic games @Blizzard Entertainment. In this video he talks about the future of the classic games and he mentioned our beloved Warcraft 3. This patching system which is being implemented in WC3 (1.28.X for the people who's still coming to the latest WC3 news) seems to have a clear target: the possibility of better visuals and new game features.

It seems that good news are arising from Blizzard and the game itself is taking a good position, at least in terms of recognizing the WC3 modding / mapping community.

Here it is: the part where he mention WC3...
