Quote from RileyStarcraft: Go
Jesus christ calm down and stop with the "Blizzard made everything deliberately hard and removed units out of spite!" shit. There are no reaver and dragoon models because they were cut when the models were still placeholders. There are plenty of models in the data files that aren't used in the game but were left in for custom maps to use. And using campaign units in a custom map is fucking trivial and if you can't figure out how to do it maybe mapmaking isn't for you.
Woah, I think you should calm down, buddy. The thing is this editor is much more complicated in some places than WC3's for absolutely no reason. Whereas in WC3 I could copy a campaign unit, now I need to copy every little bit of the campaign unit and its attachments (models, actors, weapon, upgrades, effects, etc.) and everytime I do that, I have to change the dependencies or switch in between maps. And they weren't "placeholders", they were complete models for complete units. These units were just scrapped from MP and SP probably due to balance issues and because they couldn't fit them all in the campaign. However, it's still quite a shame that they made those models (and probably portraits), only to completely get rid of them, when they could've released them within the game's files and let us use them creatively. All this would seem deliberate on Blizzard's part to encourage people to make their own stuff rather than just copy + paste their work. In that case, I don't understand why copy + paste is so frowned upon, it's not necessarily a bad thing, you can learn that way and sometimes it just speeds things up.
I wasn't whining (well, it was more of me expressing my annoyance and lack of understanding at this decision with the editor) nor assaulting, nor insulting anyone, hey, don't get all worked up.
And besides, the editor shouldn't be hard to use. Mods shouldn't purposely be hard to make to assure that only some type of people make mods rather than others. When you said that it wasn't for me, you almost came off as elitist...And if anything, elitism should be buried. If I want to mod (and I want to), I will, whether I'm some great modder or not, even if you don't necessarily agree that it is a good idea.
