What is Warcraft Model Library?

  • The Warcraft Model Library is a project with the intent to make creating Warcraft themed maps even easier. This library includes several Mod files that will be uploaded and updated on Battle.net for everyone to use. All you need to do to use these mods is download the mod file via the Sc2 Editor Dependencies Section (I will put a link or create a tutorial on how to do that later). Currently this library consists of DOODAD models only. However, I hope to add units and tree resource models soon.
  • If you decide to use any of these mods, I only ask that you give proper credits on the loading screen or in the map itself. In addition, anybody can add mod files or update current mod files by using the Warcraft Model Library site set up.
  • If you have any questions or would like to work with me more closely in making this project more robust, please contact me at Warcraft.ModelLibrary@gmail.com.
  • How to Use:

  • Open up the Sc2 Editor and load your map.
  • Once loaded, go to File -> Dependencies and click the button that says: "Add Other".
  • A dialog will appear called "Choose Document". Click on the tab that says Battle.net (it's at the top left next to Local Files).
  • Make sure you are logged into your Battle.net account (click the log in button). Click on the Source dropdown menu and select Map/Mod Name.
  • There will be a search box right next to that. Type in: WC Library and click "Go".
    Select the mod you wish to add and click "OK".
  • Repeat these steps if you wish to add more than one mod (yes, you can do that!). After you're done adding mods, click "OK" and it will load the dependencies.
  • To use the doodads, go to the doodad pallet and search for (W) to filter all the Warcraft Models.
  • If models are too big/small, go into the data editor go to the models tab and search for the model you wish to change (sometimes this is easier by going to the ACTORS tab and then seeing which model is linked to the doodad you're wanting to change). Edit the Art Scale Maximum and Art Scale Minimum (make sure they're the same).

    Want to Help?

    This project is completely open source. Anyone can use these mods for any project. All I ask is for proper credits somewhere. This also means that anybody can help improve this project! Whether you'd like to help host a mod file, report bugs, update/improve existing mods, or even add your own model libraries to the mix, it is all encouraged. By helping with any of these things, you will receive proper credit and my tanks :)

    Currently, we need help hosting all the model libraries. Because of the restrictions Blizzard has created, I alone cannot host every mod file. If you would like to Sponsor a Mod file, you will be given credit in the actual Mod name on Sc2 Mapster or any other Website with the mod.

    I also would appreciate feedback on the Libraries themselves. Any activity and posting helps keep this project relevant.

    If you would like to help, contact me here or at www.Warcraft.ModelLibraries@gmail.com

    I like how all these custom and ported assets have not received a single blue post.

    Just come out and admit that the art tools are HotS only Blizz its ok we already know. Granted not a single copy of HotS will be sold because of the Art Tools and all you are doing is pissing people off but keep it up!

    He quick fact: Some people bought StarCraft 2 just to make custom models - not play the game. These people are called "professional cg artists". They agreed to pay $60 USD (NA) and $80 USD (EU) just to make custom models. No matter. Now you are going to tack on another $40 USD.

    Essentially you are telling these guys they need to pay 100 bucks (if you are lucky and live in North America) just to make custom models that they will never make money off of.

    Can anyone see the problem here? I'm sure Blizzard can't.
