With the announcement of Warcraft: Reforged, we are getting not only an opportunity at a Warcraft 3 remaster, but an entire new engine with a brand new World Editor that looks like it may even surpass the Starcraft 2 Galaxy Editor for functionality.
With that said - I'm going to look in seeing what can be done to remaster Warcraft: Orcs and Humans and Warcraft 2: Tides of Darkness/Beyond the Dark Portal in that engine. This doesn't come out until 2019, so all of this is extremely pre-planning. If anyone is interested in also remastering those games, please post below. (I WILL NOT RESPOND TO DIRECT MESSAGES!)
I'm looking for folks that have a fairly high level of expertise in the editor:
Strong knowledge of the World Editor from WC3 and/or strong knowledge of the Galaxy Editor from SC2. As this is a new editor, I'm not expecting anyone to know how it fully functions yet. But you should be well aware of the generic functionality and logic algorithims of Blizzard editors
Have already created a fully vetted, functional project from WC3 or SC2 Mapster
Can at least make 1 or more updates per week / Have at least 8+ hours to spend on the project per week, at minimal
Understand that you will make absolutely no money and this is purely driven by fandom :)
Sounds like a great idea! I once thought about doing something like this in SCII, although my attempts were pretty much failures. Making a ship system work seems pretty much impossible in the galaxy editor. Anyways, if you need someone for UI and achievements, count me in! (I can send you some of the prototype mission launch screens I worked on if you want.)
